Source Code Review

June 14, 2020 . by Admin security

Snipeyes provides customized secure code review services to help you identify and fix security vulnerabilities in your application at the development stage. A number of security loopholes in both web and mobile apps originate right when the code is being written and developers either ignore or are unaware of secure coding practices.

Introduction

Source code review is the examination of an application source code to find errors overlooked in the initial development phase. A tester launches a code analyzer that scans line-by-line the code of an application. Once the analyzer, deployed in a testing environment, finds vulnerabilities, the pentester manually checks them to eliminate false positives.

A secure code review is perhaps a better investment of your time and resources than penetration testing is and can help you fix basic flaws when it is still quick and easy to do so, and before any major damage has been done. While a number of app development companies use automated solutions to scan their code, these tools are often not adequate to detect and address all security issues in the application code.

Our code review team has years of experience in both creating applications and conducting secure code reviews. We use a combination of automated and manual reviews to find and suggest fixes for coding errors that may eventually lead to serious security issues.

Estimation

The amount of time a tester spends on source code review varies with the programming language and the size of the application. For example, 1000 lines of code may take 0.5 – 2 hours to analyze.
