ISO/IEC 9126 Assessment

Protect the integrity of the information asset and the data it holds

Building software that was efficient, reliable, and easy to use provided a competitive advantage to many software vendors that got the software to the market at the right time with the right price. For most of these vendors, the security of the application was an afterthought. That was true until just a few years ago, but it is not the case anymore. The following quote from Mark Curphey encapsulates this trend going back the 1980’s.

“In the 80’s we wired the world with cables and in the 90’s we wired the world with computer networks. Today we are wiring the world with applications (software). Having a skilled professional capable of designing, developing and deploying secure software is now critical to this evolving world.” …Mark Curphey, Director & Product Unit Manager, Microsoft Corporation,Founder of Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)

Our Elevate professionals know the importance of following the ISO/IEC 9126 standard to evaluate the quality of the software development process. Our approach is also to focus on the security design and architecture of the software project throughout the SDLC process, to assess if “Defense in Depth” principles were followed to protect the integrity of the information asset and the data it holds.
