Is your software development process equipped to handle every kind of cyber attack? Remember, it is possible for the code quality to degenerate over the application life cycle resulting in the addition of more bugs while updating the software architecture, fixing bugs, or adding new features.
Offensive Shield’s Code Review Service can identify dangerous or erroneous coding practices and vulnerabilities, which a conventional penetration test might miss out on due to inadequate information about your IT systems. With our Code Review Service, we ensure every penny of your investment amount benefits your project and any inefficient procedure is detected and streamlined. We reduce or eliminate any remediation risks and associated costs by helping you with app security testing.
Any software application can have architectural errors, security bugs, business logic flaws, mistypes, and sundry other limitations. These can expose your processes, systems, tools, vendors, customers, and employees to situations like identity fraud, site defacement, and data breaches, and malware attack, among others. Having prior knowledge of the code can make it quicker and easier to fix vulnerabilities. Moreover, a source code review can reveal poor coding practices leading to more number of vulnerabilities in the future.
You may contact the specialists at Offensive Shield for Code Review when any of the below-mentioned factors/points exist:
The requirement of a higher level of assurance
Critical and high impact applications
Outsourced or acquired applications
Penetration tests have already been conducted
The Code Review process at Offensive Shield follows the below-mentioned checklist:
Collating general information about the project, processes, systems, technologies, features list, and frameworks.
Receive information about code metrics such as class coupling, maintainability index, depth of inheritance, and cyclomatic complexity, among others.
Receive and review information about the software architecture, namely, modules present, construction of the core, and the use of architecture principles and patterns. The code should follow a well-defined architecture irrespective of the structure used – MVVM, MVC, or MVP.
The implementation of UI is analysed from the code’s perspective. For mobile applications, it is better to review whether the code follows the style guidelines as any violation can lead to a problem with publishing.
Analyses unit tests, quality of tests and code coverage for failure conditions, and speed of execution, among others.
Lists issues as per categories and their descriptions. The issues may include too complex code, unused methods, and hardcoded values, among others.
Include different recommendations for code changes, fixes, and improvements, and their estimated turnaround time
Discover the presence of vulnerabilities in the code and prevents the software from unexpected cyber attacks. Help to design more stable, reliable, and secure applications.
Assess your software and processes in terms of business objective, code quality, and maintenance from a neutral perspective.
Code Review can be used for practically anything and not only for analysing the code that is ready to go into production. It helps to reduce the QA time and allows selecting the most appropriate QA methodology.
There is a possibility of the code deteriorating with time in the SDLC. This can lead to the addition of new bugs whenever the system is updated with new features or subjected to bug fixes. At Offensive Shield, our experts will ensure that the code remains robust, reliable, clean, and workable.
Since Code Review is done by another person besides the developer, the application logic can be better understood and any flaw identified therein.
Code Review can offer a thorough, clean, unbiased, and independent software audit by aligning the software development process with the company’s overall objectives and vision. We offer granular, actionable, and relevant recommendations for remediation and risk management.
Offensive Shield excels in providing application security and has cybersecurity specialists who can validate findings, interpret test results, and prioritize vulnerabilities for remediation.
Our Code Review Services are tailored to your specific needs and are provided by experts who are experienced, adaptable, professional, experienced, and easy to work with.
Our dynamic testing methodology and approach can correlate the test results to make a comprehensive and accurate assessment of your IT security posture.
Post process recommendations on a successful Code Review, we brief your leadership team about the findings of various aspects of the software development process.
Acting upon these recommendations can keep your organization on a growth trajectory, prevent cyberattacks, and deliver a superior end-user experience.
