Services overview

What is Security Code Review?

Vumetric’s Security Code Review is a thorough examination of your application’s source code to identify security vulnerabilities, improper coding practices. At Vumetric, our approach to security code review is distinguished by the expertise and thoroughness we bring to each project. Our team, composed of seasoned security professionals, employs a balanced mix of advanced automated tools and meticulous manual inspection. Our approach is aligned with leading security standards such as OWASP, ensuring that our reviews and recommendations are both comprehensive and current with global best practices. 

 Beyond mere detection, Vumetric stands out for its commitment to proactive security enhancement. We don’t just pinpoint existing problems; we provide detailed guidance and recommendations for best coding practices. This advice is tailored to your specific needs and is designed to fortify your application against future vulnerabilities. Our aim is to equip your developers with the knowledge and tools they need to maintain and enhance the security of your software, ensuring long-term protection and resilience in an ever-evolving digital landscape. 

Evolving Cyber Threat Landscape

Why Should You Perform Application Security Code Review?

  • Adapting to Advanced Threats: Essential for adapting to sophisticated cyber threats, security code reviews strengthen applications against new hacking techniques and vulnerabilities.
  • Adapts to Emerging Technologies and Practices: Regular reviews ensure the application’s security evolves with new technologies and practices, maintaining robust defenses in a rapidly changing tech landscape.
  • Early Vulnerability Detection: Security code reviews catch vulnerabilities early, reducing exploit risks by addressing flaws before they become ingrained in the code, enhancing the application’s security from the start.
  • Ensuring Compliance with Evolving Standards: Regular reviews are key to keeping applications in line with the latest cybersecurity standards and legal regulations, ensuring ongoing compliance.
  • Security Best Practices Integration: Integrating secure coding practices from the outset through reviews establishes a strong security foundation, preventing common vulnerabilities and embedding security into the software development lifecycle.
  • Reduces Cost of Late Fixes: Identifying and resolving security issues during development, rather than post-deployment, significantly cuts costs associated with late-stage fixes, rework, and potential operational disruptions.

How Does Security Code Review Secure Application?

  • Improved Application Security: Address vulnerabilities at the application-level, ensuring robust security mechanisms. 
  • Regulatory Adherence: Ensure your codebase aligns with industry standards and best practices. 
  • Enhanced Code Quality: The review process can also enhance the overall quality and efficiency of your code. 
  • User Assurance: Reinforce the trust users place in your application by ensuring its security. 
  • Cost-Effective Strategy: Address vulnerabilities early, preventing potential costly breaches and subsequent reparations. 
Code quality, security vulnerabilities, compliance.

What Will be Assessed During A Security Code Review?

  • Business Logic: Deep dive into the application’s logic, identifying potential flaws or vulnerabilities that could be exploited. 
  • Authentication Mechanisms: Examination of authentication processes and protocols. This includes checks for weak password policies, hardcoded credentials, and other potential pitfalls. 
  • Code Injection Points: Scrutinize potential areas susceptible to injections, such as SQL, OS Commands, and more, ensuring they are fortified against such attacks. 
  • Client-side Vulnerabilities: Comprehensive analysis of client-side codes, highlighting vulnerabilities like Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF). 
  • Third-party Components: Thorough evaluation of integrated third-party components, libraries, and modules for potential vulnerabilities they might introduce into the application. 
  • And More: Including session management vulnerabilities, insecure data storage or transfer points, weaknesses in cryptographic protocols, and potential backdoors or logic bombs.

Bridging the Security Gap

The Main Obstacles to Writing Secure Code​

  • Expertise in Security Tools: Security tools require specialized expertise to use efficiently
  • Misplaced Reliance on Firewalls: Firewalls are often misinterpreted as sufficient to block threats
  • Lack of QA Involvement: Quality assurance teams are often not involved at this level
  • Developer Training Gaps: Most developers are not trained specifically to write secure code
  • Knowledge Gap in Standards: Top standards and best practices are often unknown to dev teams

Why Conduct A Security Code Review?

Security Code Review is a critical component of a comprehensive cybersecurity risk management strategy. Here are the key benefits:

Prevent Threats Actively

Proactively identify and address potential vulnerabilities in your codebase to avert exploitable threats.

Build User Confidence

A secure codebase not only boosts user trust but also fosters increased engagement due to assured safety.

Gain Competitive Edge

Stand out in the market with an application that promises not just functionality but also reliable security.

Ensure Regulatory Adherence

Stay ahead of the curve by consistently ensuring compliance with industry standards and regulations.

Minimize Costs

Proactively managing security helps to avoid the financial and reputational damage associated with potential breaches

Security Code Review FAQ

Couldn’t find the information you were looking for? Ask an expert directly.

The process of expert-led code reviews differs from automated scans in several significant ways: 

  • Depth of Analysis: Automated scans are efficient at identifying common vulnerabilities and patterns that are well-documented, but they lack the depth and contextual understanding that an expert can provide. Experts can identify complex issues, such as logic flaws or business rule violations, that automated tools may miss. 
  • Customized Insight: While automated tools follow a standardized approach, experts can tailor their analysis to the specific needs and context of your application. This includes understanding the business logic and unique aspects of your software, which leads to more relevant and actionable findings. 
  • Human Intuition and Experience: Experts bring their experience and intuition to the table, which helps in recognizing subtle vulnerabilities and potential future risks that an automated scan might not be programmed to detect. 
  • After Major Updates: It is crucial to conduct code reviews after significant changes to the codebase. These changes might introduce new vulnerabilities or affect existing functionalities. 
  • Regular Reviews: At a minimum, conducting a review at least once annually is recommended. Regular reviews help in maintaining the security posture of the application and adapting to new security threats. 

We cover a wide range of popular programming languages like Java, Python, C++, and others. This broad spectrum ensures that most applications, regardless of the programming language they are built in, can be reviewed effectively. 

Yes, the expertise is not limited to web applications but also extends to mobile applications. This includes both the client-side and server-side components of mobile apps, ensuring comprehensive coverage of the entire application ecosystem. 

To protect your intellectual property, ensure that you engage a reputable service provider with strict confidentiality policies and measures in places. It's also a good idea to have non-disclosure agreements in place before sharing sensitive information.
