Code Review

An all-inclusive approach is taken to incorporate security as an integral component of the entire delivery pipeline from the start.

Our innovative methodology to audit source code for an application provides a comprehensive framework to identify the flaws and security issues inside the working source code of the application. In our source code audit methodology, we don't rely only upon the automated tools for the source code audits. We make use of a perfect blend of automation as well as manual source code review to cover all the vulnerable areas of the source code.

Our Offerings

Payatu provides a multi-tier approach to review the source code in a modular mechanism to ensure complete application depth coverage and quality remediation. Strategically designed audit to ascertain the flaws and vulnerabilities of application code on the intrinsic risk profile provides case-level coverage at a low cost without compromising quality.

With known risks in mind, and the ability to locate those risks that are lurking deep below the surface, Payatu will test and evaluate your source code to find weaknesses that are exploitable by accident or design. Just a summary of the features we offer as part of our vulnerability audit:

  • Immediately define all of your existing security issues
  • Optimized approach developed through years of assessment experience
  • Blended manual and tool-based assessment approach
  • Tool-agnostic assessment approach
  • Thorough analysis of tool's results
  • Detailed reporting and actionable remediation guidance
  • Ability to customize assessment process, checklists and deliverables
  • Consistent and scalable delivery through Payatu Assessment Centre

Our Approach and Methodology

We follow the process of a white-box approach to conduct Source Code Audit Review that is driven by a contextual understanding of how applications are built and focus on ensuring that secure coding practices have been followed during the software development lifecycle. To this end, we think in terms of how an application should be secured from the inside - given what it does, what its attack surfaces may be, how it is designed and implemented. Such a contextual assessment approach is different from the way traditional static analysis methods look for generic vulnerability patterns. In addition, we supplement such reviews with actionable remediation guidance that is specific to the design, platform, technology stack, and implementation nuances of each application on a case-by-case basis.
