The Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) has significantly improved the security of Microsoft products. With attacks increasingly shifting to the application layer, it is becoming more critical for application developers to implement the SDL.
To support the need for application developers to implement the SDL, Microsoft created the SDL Pro Network. This network includes nine training and consulting companies that specialize in application security and have substantial experience and expertise with the methodology and technologies of the SDL, the industry-leading software security assurance process.
