Security Solutions for the Digital Era

The digital era and cybersecurity go hand-in-hand; as our reliance on technology grows, so do the number of threats from online criminals. As a result, many enterprises struggle to ensure that their company’s and customers’ data are protected. In a recent study conducted on behalf of SoftServe, more than half of C-level executives said security is the primary concern stopping them from making investments in digital transformation.

At SoftServe, security experts support every software development project.

At SoftServe, security is not an add-on or afterthought. Instead, SoftServe’s security team makes sure vulnerabilities are addressed prior to every new software release or application deployment. The team can also test the strength of an organization’s IT infrastructure to ensure a company is protected before an incident is detected. In 2015, our manual penetration testing project for ContractPal won “Security Solution of the Year” in the European IT & Software Excellence Awards.


In a recent press release, Nazar Tymoshyk, Certified Ethical Hacker and security solutions architect at SoftServe, said:

“With so much data being created, moved, and stored, and with so much reliance being placed on that data, security needs to be baked in at the very outset of any digital transformation initiative.”
