Microsoft SDL Process Template

Microsoft has released a Visual Studio module that helps developers adhere to Microsoft's SDL process. This tool has a whole lot of things right such as:
  • Ensuring developers complete security activities before checking in code
  • Providing a workflow for developers to follow
  • Providing SDL process steps, instructions, descriptions, and resources to developers
Tools, such a the SDL Process Template released by Microsoft, can greatly increase the success rate of an organization's migration towards a secure software development process. Once organizations define their own custom secure development process, a similar approach should be used to help make adherence easier.
