Application Code Reviews
Application code reviews uncover application vulnerabilities in the source code and potential security issues relating to its design. By reviewing internally developed applications before they are deployed, enterprises can fix software security flaws, which, if gone unchecked can result in a breach and potential access to sensitive enterprise information or even private customer data. Using embedded code or exploiting flaws in software, hackers gain control of company computers and get access to confidential information and customer records. Companies that identify and remediate application security gaps early in the life cycle generate software maintenance savings that reduce overall development costs. Furthermore, a comprehensive source code review also assures compliance with government and industry regulatory mandates.
Automated application security scanning is often insufficient to identify all vulnerabilities within applications. But an in-depth source code review that combines automated analysis and manual inspection leads to greater code coverage and more accurate results. Therefore the process of automated review combined with manual review is the best approach. Using both methods in conjunction enables the identification of a higher number of software security vulnerabilities in an efficient and cost effective manner.
Industry best practices ensure that you are ready for cyber attackers.
Cyber Shelter’s application source code review service is based on industry best practices that help ensure that your application layer is ready for cyber attackers. While we use a suite of commercial inspection tools to help automate our hybrid application assessment process, we are aware that static analysis tools are incapable of finding flaws and logic vulnerabilities that require context and application understanding to identify. Cyber Shelter’s experts manually validate every issue; inspect and verify code; prioritize vulnerabilities for remediation; and find policy and best practice violations, such as inappropriate cryptography algorithms and common semantic language constructs that cause vulnerabilities. The end result is actionable intelligence.
We have deep industry experience with virtually all modern software environments and frameworks, including C/C++, Java, ASP, .NET, Oracle, Struts, ColdFusion, Spring, Ajax, RIA, and many more. For enterprises seeking the industry’s best comprehensive application source code review service, Cyber Shelter has the answer.
