Secure Development & Implementation

With our highly skilled staff of software engineers and seasoned security professionals, we provide a full range of services and supporting solutions to help our clients implement and develop their ideas.

We provide a broad panel of Development and Implementation Services tailored to your needs and timetable:

  • Complete handling of the development process, from inception to production
  • Development of mobile, web-based or back‑office solutions
  • Selection and integration of existing packages
  • Set‑up of flexible and secure Software Factories in customer or Approach facilities
  • UI / UX consulting to provide the best blend between user experience and security
  • Analysis, Architecture and Design
  • Selection and definition of secure SDLC (methodology, processes)
  • WAF Selection and implementation 


Nowadays companies have to be lean and agile. But are you sure this agility isn’t being achieved at the expense of security? Combining both is a difficult exercise, but one that is critical if you want to thrive in today’s market conditions.

End‑users are always looking for more advanced and friendly solutions. Implementing these requires software that is becoming increasingly complex and connected, accessing more data or using cutting‑edge technologies such as AI.

Whether integrating existing solutions or developing a fully customised one, security needs to be an integral part of every step in the process. Without this approach, you are opening the door to potential new vulnerabilities or exposing yourself to data privacy issues instead of capitalising on the value you try to create.


By focusing clearly on security for more than 15 years, Approach is in a unique position to make security an integral part of the development and implementation process. Following the “Secure by Design” principle, security is pervasive in all activities, from inception to the decommissioning of a system.

In order to achieve full security, we ensure that there is proper awareness among all stakeholders. All of our consultants and software engineers have been trained and certified to make security part of their everyday job. And through proper training and mentoring, we ensure your staff acquires the same mindset.

We recommend and implement a tailored, secure SDLC methodology (e.g. secure SCRUM) that encompasses the whole delivery process.
