Secure and Safe Software

The F-Secure Safe interface has been completely revamped. Gone are the stylized hilly landscape with trees and clouds, replaced by a flat design of three rectangular panels with security status icons (red when something is wrong) and an green checkmark when all is well.

Software is a powerful and versatile tool. The methods we employ it can change the world. It is not safe from threats from malicious actors who try to exploit vulnerabilities to gain access to data and cause chaos.

To stay safe from these threats, it is important to incorporate security improvements into the software development and test procedures. This means including best practices in security testing, resulting in an environment for development that is secure and preventing flaws by updating and patching applications.

This method must involve all the parties involved in the process to be effective. It requires a structured methodology as well as an organization-wide culture of safety tools and training to ensure security throughout the process. This involves establishing a trustworthy component that is able to maintain a trusted list of risk, assessing the risk using threat modeling, sharing standards to third parties and verifying compliance by using secure coding practices, using top industry-specific tools, as well as conducting automated and manual vulnerability tests and reviews.

A robust, scalable process for security is crucial to creating reliable and trustworthy software. This is particularly applicable to high-profile systems such as those in healthcare, financial services, the automotive industry and homeland security. These systems have more rigorous coding requirements, such as those in the MISRA C and MISRA C++ guidelines for coding, to prevent vulnerabilities that could compromise safety.
