Source Code Audits
What is a Source Code Review Service?
A Source Code review service discovers hidden vulnerabilities, design flaws, and verifies if key security controls are implemented. Paladion uses a combination of scanning tools and manual review to detect insecure coding practices, backdoors, injection flaws, cross site scripting flaws, insecure handling of external resources, weak cryptography, etc.
The Source Code Review Process
The first step of a security code review is to conduct a through study of the application followed by the creation of a comprehensive threat profile.
Our experts study the code layout to develop a specific code reviewer plan, and uses a hybrid approach where automated scans are verified and a custom manual review is performed.
Once the code is analyzed, the next step in the security code review process is to verify existing flaws and generate reports that provide solutions.
The Source Code Review Advantage
Easily detect flaws through code analysis and avoid the need to send test data to the application or software since access to the entire code base of the application is available.
Evaluate the entire code layout of the application including areas that wouldn’t be analyzed in an application security test such as entry points for different inputs, internal interfaces and integrations, data handling and validation logic, and the use of external API’s and frameworks.
Overcome Testing Limitations
Uncover vulnerabilities and detect attack surfaces that automated code scans miss using security code reviews to detect weak algorithms, identify design flaws, find insecure configurations and spot insecure coding practices.
Produce security code review reports that include an executive summary that lists strengths and weaknesses and provides detailed findings that include precise code based solutions and fixes.
Secure sensitive data storage and suggest precise solutions customized for your developers with code level suggestions that include more exhaustive checks to find all instances of common vulnerabilities.
Meet Compliance Standards
Satisfy industry regulations and compliance standards including PCI DSS standards.
