Code review is probably the single-most effective technique for identifying security flaws. When used together with automated tools and manual penetration testing, code review can significantly increase the cost effectiveness of an application security verification effort.Manual security code review provides insight into the “real risk” associated with insecure code. This is the single most important value from a manual approach. A human reviewer can understand the context for certain coding practices, and make a serious risk estimate that accounts for both the likelihood of attack and the business impact of a breach.
Source code review is carried out in order to find, examine, understand and fix flaws in your code. Without it, a simple mistake could put your whole organisation at risk of an attack or data breach.
Even the most advanced coders make mistakes. With MetrixCloud source code review service, you will have peace of mind knowing your source code complies with our high security standards.
Anything from applications to websites, mobile to PC.
Source code review should be performed on a regular basis to ensure more consistent IT and network security management by revealing how newly discovered threats or emerging vulnerabilities may potentially be assailed by attackers. In addition to regularly scheduled analysis and assessments required by regulatory mandates, tests should also be run whenever:
New network infrastructure or applications are added • Significant upgrades or modifications are applied to infrastructure or applications • New office locations are established • Security patches are applied • End user policies are modified
