Find a cost effective and flexible application security testing solution. Well-structured security testing is required to streamline regulatory certification and code ratify an outsourced app development process.
TLT saw an opportunity when it realized that the current, cuff-based, blood pressure method is error-prone. Inflating a cuff can create alerting responses and false positives. It was clear doctors and patients are looking for more accuracy and ease of use in monitoring blood pressure.
Nita Shah, co-founder and CTO at TLT, continues the story: “Our biosensor is similar in design to a watch and can non-invasively acquire physiological data that is currently only available through intra-arterial blood monitoring. Having started a clinical study with Barts Hospital, we anticipate a positive outcome, and are in the process of commercializing our device. We have global patents in place, and are working with the regulatory authorities on CE mark and FDA approval.”
Delivering a high quality, safe, and fit for purpose device are top priorities for manufacturers. The TLT sensor contains software, embedded in the device, and as a user-friendly phone or tablet app. The challenge was in security verifying these software components, as Nita Shah explains: “Being a start-up, we are cost constrained, and the static software analysis tools on the market were completely beyond my budget. With the increased global importance placed on cybersecurity we needed a flexible security testing solution to satisfy our regulatory auditors.”
