Security Compass, a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions, was founded in 2004 by Nish Bhalla. The company experienced transformative growth under its founder’s leadership and vision to work towards a world where we can all trust technology. Propelled by their mission to help customers manage cybersecurity risk without slowing down their business, the company secured growth equity funding from FTV Capital, a sector-focused growth equity investment firm, in 2020. To capitalize on the market opportunities presented by this partnership, Security Compass appointed Rohit Sethi as the new CEO. Sethi, formerly COO and Security Compass’ first hire almost 13 years earlier, has been an integral part of the organization and the creation of SD Elements. Its flagship product, SD Elements, helps organizations accelerate software time to market and reduce cyber risks by taking an automated, developer-centric approach to threat modeling, secure development, and compliance. In 2021, the company divested its Advisory branch to become a focused software company.
Today, Security Compass is a pioneer in application security that enables organizations to shift left and build secure applications by design, integrated directly with existing DevSecOps tools and workflows. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with an investment in SD Elements, Security Compass commissioned Forrester Consulting to interview four decision-makers with direct experience using the platform. Forrester aggregated the interviewees’ experiences for this study and combined the results into a single composite organization. The decision-maker interviews and financial analysis found that a composite organization experiences benefits of $2.86 million over three years versus costs of $663,000, adding up to a net present value (NPV) of $2.20 million and an ROI of 332%. Security Compass is the trusted solution provider to leading financial and technology organizations, the US Department of Defense, government agencies, and renowned global brands across multiple industries.
