Secure Code Review

An increasing number of attacks exploit poorly developed code, circumventing weak security controls to gain unauthorized access to system or network-level data.

WHAT IS SECURE CODE REVIEW?

A secure code review involves the manual and automated evaluation of a program‘s source code to detect potential vulnerabilities.

In addition to identifying vulnerabilities, a secure code review seeks to identify insecure design patterns and weak coding practices. Once identified, developers can leverage this knowledge to create more secure code in the future. 

KEY BENEFITS OF A SECURE CODE REVIEW

EARLY PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION

Known in the industry as “Shift Left Testing,” Security flaws and weaknesses can be identified and addressed before the application is pushed to production by performing secure code reviews early in the development process. This can be very valuable in the design and architecture stage of an application’s development cycle.

COST & TIME SAVINGS

Detecting and resolving vulnerabilities earlier can save companies time, money, and resources. This translates into reduced costs and time to identify, fix, and debug vulnerabilities.

ENCOURAGES HEALTHY CODING PRACTICES

Performing Secure Code Analysis verifies the integrity of the application’s code and ultimately improves the overall coding standards of your organization. In addition, it encourages developers to create robust and stable applications, resulting in fewer errors like memory leaks, insecure logic and anti-patterns.

ONLINE'S SECURE CODE ANALYSIS & REVIEW SERVICES

We help prevent security breaches resulting from the deployment of insecure code by analyzing the application code and the underlying architecture for vulnerabilities and weaknesses.

Our Secure Code Reviews follow a detailed process that utilizes dynamic and static tools, ultimately compiling a report that details our findings. 

THE SECURE CODE REVIEW PROCESS

We help identify potential issues with architecture, integration, and user requirements early in the lifecycle so your software is built and implemented securely from the start.

BLOG: INSECURE CODING CAN LEAD TO A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

A zombie alert in Lake Worth, Florida, has made headlines worldwide. Laughter aside, this hack is another helpful reminder to ensure that our applications are reasonably secure. Coding errors could have had much more severe and harmful consequences.
