Our Software Development Lifecycle
All changes to Alloy Software’s application code base go through a full suite of automated tests, are thoroughly reviewed and then go through a round of manual reviews. Application code changes pass through multiple review stages before being released publicly or installed on customer cloud hosted production servers. For security sensitive changes and features, additional reviews take place.
If security exploits are discovered, Alloy Software has emergency procedures in place to ensure software patches are delivered quickly to our customers and that exploits are communicated when necessary.
Security at the Alloy Software Workplace
