The Importance of Secure Development
With the vast amount of threats that constantly pressure companies and governments, it is important to ensure that the software applications these organizations utilize are completely secure. Secure development is a practice to ensure that the code and processes that go into developing applications are as secure as possible. Secure development entails the utilization of several processes, including the implementation of a Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) and secure coding itself.
Secure Development Lifecycle
Integrating security practices into the software development lifecycle and verifying the security of internally developed applications before they are deployed can help mitigate risk from internal and external sources. Using Titan to test the security of applications helps customers implement a secure development program in a simple and cost-effective way.
Secure development can be incorporated into both a traditional software development lifecycle and the rapid pace agile development. Titan also provides the ability to conduct security assessments on applications during the SDLC.

Too often, systems are designed with a focus on business goals, fancy features, and the technological capabilities of hardware or software tools. All of these approaches to system design omit the most important part of the process – the end user.
What is User-Centered Design?
User Experience Design (UXD) entails conducting user research exercises with intended users of a system. User research reveals users’ needs and preferences through user observations, one-on-one interviews, and creative activities that encourage users to express their emotions, motivations, and underlying concepts and beliefs about the steps involved in task procedures. By understanding the human emotions, motivations, and beliefs that surround a task, a user interface can be designed to accommodate and support user behaviors in a way that users will experience as natural and satisfying.
What is Usability?
Usability is a measure of the interactive user experience associated with a user interface, such a website or software application. A user-friendly interface design is easy-to-learn, supports users’ tasks and goals efficiently and effectively, and is satisfying and engaging to use.
Titan+ Engineers use deep analysis of data from several users to provide a means of recommending how and where to re-design the interface in order to improve its level of usability and thus, the user experience in general.
Why is Usability Important?
From the user’s perspective, usability is important because it can make the difference between performing a task accurately and completely or not, and enjoying the process or being frustrated. From the developer’s perspective, usability is important because it can mean the difference between the success or failure of a system. From a management point of view, software with poor usability can reduce the productivity of the workforce to a level of performance worse than without the system. In all cases, lack of usability can cost time and effort and can greatly determine the success or failure of a system. Given a choice, people tend to buy systems that are more user-friendly.
How Do You Achieve a High Level of Usability?
The key principle for maximizing usability is to employ iterative design, which progressively refines the design through evaluation from the early stages of design. The evaluation steps enable the designers and developers to incorporate user and client feedback until the system reaches an acceptable level of usability.
We’ll help you understand your users and their needs.
Observing and interacting with end users through user research is the best way to understand them. Titan takes a disciplined approach to understanding expressed and latent user needs, motivations, opinions and behaviors. Through direct observations and employing methods such as contextual interviews, we seek to understand workflows, pain points and desired interactions with digital devices, products, applications and services.
Whether our team is engaged to design a new digital product or feature, expand a product line, address UX issues or respond to new business opportunities, Titan researchers help answer questions such as:
Who is using the app, system or service and what are their underlying needs and goals?
What key characteristics and behaviours describe the individuals who will use a system?
What workflow patterns and user preferences are important to consider in design?
How should the context in which a product is used impact its design?
Our goal is always to match the right method to the problem at hand. Some of our research is built on observations from field studies, site visits, contextual interviews, or ethnographic studies, while at other times we incorporate surveys, diary studies, or other self-reporting techniques.
Emerging User Research Tools and Methods
Titan User Researchers are also leveraging digital and social media tools to gather data and feedback from individuals and research panels. New methods of collecting research artifacts such as digital photos, video clips, Tweets, and mobile posts from target users of interest are adding value to our research projects, and we have developed our own innovative processes, such as streaming field sessions, live from remote research locations.
Titan+ uses a user-centered design process that creates design solutions at the intersection of user needs and your business goals. We start with a discovery process to understand user needs and business goals and set priorities and objectives for the design. After discovery, our design process obtains user feedback early and often to ensure the designs meet these objectives. We deliver our designs in prototypes, specifications and code and work with client development teams using a variety of methodologies (Agile, RUP, unstructured).
We tailor the process based on any product phase including:
- Creating a new product
- Improving the performance of an existing product
- Extending the features of an existing product
- Creating a UX pattern library for a product

Titan’s Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking service adopts different methodologies, while applying manual and automated testing approaches, to systematically compromise firewalls, networks and respective devices, servers, web applications, mobile devices and other points of exposure in a controlled way. Once a vulnerability has been successfully exploited, our security analysts will attempt to increase their foothold by launching succeeding exploits to gain higher levels of security clearance and deeper access to electronic assets and information using privilege escalation.
Our penetration tests include comprehensive reports about vulnerabilities and weaknesses which have been successfully exploited during the pentest period. Most value comes from aggregating the discovered vulnerabilities to support prioritized remediation efforts while allowing strategic conclusions.
Web Application Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking
Comprehensive Penetration Test of your external and internal web applications to identify vulnerabilities and prioritize mitigation based upon OWASP and many others. Our Web Application “pentest ” service will greatly enhance your web application’s security.
Network Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking
Evaluation of your network’s ability to withstand attacks. Our certified ethical hackers, armed with the same techniques as cybercriminals, will break into your network and raise awareness about vulnerabilities and the effects of exploitation as well as end-user adherence to security policies.
Secure Code Review
Examination of your web application’s code performed by security specialists that aims to identify security flaws and withstand attacks. Analyzing the code gives the opportunity to find vulnerabilities that would not be found otherwise. Thus, this service is complementary with penetration test.
Mobile App Security Assessment
Assessing your mobile applications to identify vulnerabilities specific to mobile computing environments, such as those defined by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) and other emerging industry standards. Android and iOS are supported.
Discover vulnerabilities within your assets wherever they are (perimeter, internal networks, cloud). Regardless of the infrastructure in use, our experts will assess the security of your systems using both automatic and analytical (manual) methodologies.
Wireless Network Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking
Penetration testing of your wireless LAN (WLAN) to discover security flaws in wireless networks. In addition, our ethical hacking service will assist you to implement defensive techniques that allow you to enjoy the flexibility that your WiFi network offers your employees in a secure fashion.
Social Engineering Assessment
Evaluation of your employees’ readiness to identify and withstand attacks through Social Engineering techniques. In our assessment, we use the same techniques as cybercriminals do (e.g. advance reconnaissance, phishing, vphishing, etc.) to launch realistic social engineering campaigns.
There are three basic modes of applying Application Security as a Service (ASaaS). Each mode represents application security methods applied at each stage of the software development life cycle, from the highly reactive attempts at in-deployment blocking methods to the more proactive examination of source code.
We have Web Application Firewalls for protection of applications while in deployment in normal operation. These constitute the most reactive of mechanisms and demand prior knowledge of what may constitute a potential threat in order to be effective.
We have DAST, or Dynamic Application Security Testing which is the application of testing solutions and techniques that are designed to test an application from the “outside in” to simulate and detect conditions indicative of a security vulnerability in an application in its running state before production deployment. This is sometimes known as an application vulnerability assessment or “black box” vulnerability testing.
We have SAST, or Static Application Security Testing which is the application of source code analysis, or testing an application from the “inside out” or “white box” vulnerability analysis.
There is an ongoing debate within the security industry on what mode constitutes the most effective means of applying application security. Titan+ use both a DAST & SAST approach to deliver a wider range of coverage in terms of security for applications and development.

- Our passion for test automation has helped us turnaround projects irrespective of their stage and health. In fact, often we have succeeded in solving complex test automation challenges when others have failed!
It is a fact that 80% of the UI test automation projects are failures and from remaining up to 15% do not yield the expected ROI, but rather incurs losses. While there are several reasons for this, the main reason lies in the attitude of stakeholders towards test automation projects. This is reflected in the lack of importance given to automation projects and the lack of planning conducted for test automation projects. Most people think of test automation as a record and play activity. After spending many years on a variety of test automation projects across diverse domains and technologies, we have developed a test automation methodology that starts with a phase involving considerable planning and strategizing.
Over the last few years, leading third party test automation tools have evolved in their ability to automate UI driven functionality. However, simultaneously software applications and UI rendering technologies have also grown in complexity. Hence, the challenge to ensure test automation through the UI still exists, irrespective of the test automation tool that one chooses. To minimize changes to the automation code, a test automation framework must be robust, modular and extensible.
