Code Audits

The primary objective when performing a code audit is to identify security vulnerabilities within the design or in the application source code of your product. Remember those tradeoffs years ago of writing secure code vs writing applications quickly? Unfortunately, decisions to write applications quickly in the past might have consequences now. CODE Security recommends doing code audits with penetration tests because it allows the testers to achieve the highest coverage and identify hard-to-spot weaknesses by combining the dynamic and static testing approaches.

CODE Security’s team of senior consultants are fluent in a wide range of programming languages and are capable of performing code audits against code bases written in many programming languages. Reach out to us today about having CODE Security perform a code audit on your code.

CODE Security conducts programming language audits in several steps. First, we conduct an initial scoping and work with the development team, which allows our expert consultants to get an overview of the application’s design and architecture along with its code structure. This input is essential for the creation of a threat model, better tailoring the actual code review towards our clients’ need and the definition of a baseline of what potential threats the application’s threat model includes. Following that, expert CODE Security consultants conduct the actual code audit using manual and automated methods. The primary focus of our audit relies on manual code analysis taking full advantage of the expertise and experience of our expert CODE Security consultants. Ideally CODE Security conducts our audits in close collaboration with CODE’s software development team and we communicate our findings as they arise directly to the developers. This approach helps reduce or eliminate false-positives and better target the testing of important and interesting areas to incorporate feedback from the development team into the review process.

At the conclusion of your code audit, our CODE Security experts provide a technical report including all identified vulnerabilities along with a severity rating according to industry standards. If you need help increasing the security of your application by modifying its source code, we have custom software developers to help you.
