Continuous Security


Our Application Security Services engineer security into your Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) through Gap Analysis, Threat Modeling, Static Analysis, and Penetration & DDoS Testing.

Gap Analysis

Our SEALs leverage gap analysis tools to identify your critical data and security vulnerabilities in your environment. We determine realistic and achievable application security goals for your Secure Software Development Life Cycle (S-SDLC).

Threat Modeling

Our Threat Modeling defines three levels – low, moderate, or high – of potential impact in the event of a security breach. We develop comprehensive threat models that include the business and technical scope of your application’s security posture.

Static Analysis

TransactIQ’s SEALs perform extensive source code analysis using BURP (based on CERT secure coding standards) to identify sensitive information and code blocks that are vulnerable to exploitation. We perform reverse engineering on your applications to extract source code.

Penetration & DDOS Testing

TransactIQ’s SEALs perform real time penetration tests and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks to attempt to exploit vulnerabilities identified during the analysis phases. We estimate the extent of possible losses through identified vulnerabilities.


The most cost-effective way to develop secure software is through implementing a mature S-SDLC. It ensures that security assurance activities – penetration testing, code review, and architecture analysis – are an integral part of all software development phases: Requirements, Design, Development, Testing, and Deployment. For example, in a S-SDLC, security requirements are completed in Requirements and architectural risk analysis is completed in Design.

Our Application Security Services help you understand the key security practices that should be implemented in your development practice. We can then help you formalize an organization wide S-SDLC program through our Center of Excellence.

Remember that the cost of software remediation increases the longer that security is ignored during the SDLC. For each development sprint, dedicating 2–5% engineering time for security is better than missing a release or being hacked.

It is clear that security must integrated early into the software development process, now more than ever.


Whether you’re creating a new IoT product or deploying an IoT solution, our experienced and skilled SEALs help you identify possible IoT exploitations, mitigate security vulnerabilities across your IoT ecosystem, and formalize security automation.

Our SEALs understand IoT Edge hardware platforms (Edge/Fog computing, design for cloud connectivity) and leverage a thorough knowledge of physical and logical security methods implemented in hardware (secure storage, anti-tamper, hardware accelerated cryptography). We also have extensive knowledge of IoT security frameworks and enterprise architecture and are experienced with the full IoT lifecycle including, device provisioning, commissioning, and remote device management layers. We are also adept at various IoT technical concepts such as JSON, OAUTH, ZIGBEE, and MUD.

IoT Threat Modeling

Our IoT Threat Modeling defines three levels – low, moderate, or high – of potential impact should there be a breach of security. We develop comprehensive threat models that include the comprehensive business and technical scope of your application’s IoT security.

Penetration & DDOS Testing

TransactIQ’s SEALs use software and hardware based DDoS and penetration testing techniques to try to exploit your entire IoT ecosystem. Our penetration testing identifies vulnerabilities in IoT device architecture, IoT application architecture, and embedded hardware and firmware. We also offer software-defined, radio-based IoT pentesting with Zigbee and Z-Wave.

Protocol Testing

Our IoT Protocol Testing analyzes communications to and from the device, including testing the cryptographic security of encrypted transmissions, the capture and transmission of data, and fuzzing of the communication protocols. We assess the security of communication protocols to determine the risk to your organization and clients.


Security is even more critical as we approach Gartner’s 2017 forecast of 20.4 billion IoT devices by 2020. More connected endpoints mean more potential security breaches. Our dependency on “things” increases our risk of identity theft.

Eclipse IoT Working Group’s 2017 IoT developer survey lists security as the top concern for IoT developers.

IoT developers need to secure IT, IoT, IIoT, and OT devices and data as they interoperate with mobile, cloud-based, and applications. Since device deployment occurs in uncontrolled and complex environments, adopting a multi-layered security-by-design approach to IoT development is essential.

Building cost-effective secure IoT applications means incorporating IoT security into the S-SDLC.

Our SEALs incorporate security by default; this means configuring features at their most secure settings before, during, and after development. Security by default enables you to maintain data privacy and integrity while delivering highly available IoT data, apps, and services.


DevOps – a new organizational and cultural way of organizing development and IT operations – demands closer scrutiny of application security practices. The risk of discovering security vulnerabilities too late or not at all becomes even greater if you deliver code at DevOps speed without security in mind, or security oversight only in the testing phase.

The intent of DevSecOps is that everyone is responsible for security, with the goal of safely distributing security decisions at speed and scale.

Our Center of Excellence can formalize an organization wide DevSecOps program that adds security to development and operations.


TransactIQ delivers comprehensive continuous services for building great applications that are highly available, secure, and interoperable. Our SEALs utilize leading technologies, rigorous standards, and proven methodologies to minimize risk and maximize productivity. Leveraging our portfolio and expertise enables companies to capture new efficiencies, new revenue sources, and increased market share.
