Secure Code Review

Secure Code Review is a process that identifies the insecure piece of code which may cause a potential vulnerability in a later stage of the software development process, ultimately leading to an insecure application.

When a vulnerability is detected in earlier stages of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), it has a smaller impact than the later stages of SDLC – when the insecure code moves to the production environment.

According to research, more than 75% of attacks happen due to an insecure application, with insecure code.  Most developers tend to focus on the functionality of the application, speed of coding and delivery, and ignore the secure coding approach.  This is changing now because of the increasing incidents of hacking and malware attacks.

Our Secure Code Review of applications source code verify that developers have implemented the appropriate security controls, that these controls work as designed to ensure that the reviewed application was developed on a secure foundation.
