Source Code Review

Source Code Review

Source Code Review is performed to identify the various security issues that are present in the source code of the applications that form the core business logic of the application or an integral part of the organization’s environment.

With the software literally eating the world and increase the use of the mobile applications, and software technologies across several areas, securing the source code of the application will enhance the overall security of the application and improves the security posture of the organization.

Software developers are required to include best security practices as a part of their entire software development life cycle to ensure the security of the source code Hence, source code review assessments for all internal and external-facing applications helps the developers remediate vulnerabilities that are found during the process thereby and enhance the overall security of the software application.

As per requirements, QRC is capable of performing secure source code review assessment can be conducted both onsite as well as offsite:

  • In an Onsite assessment, a QRC Security operations team personnel will conduct the source code review provided by the organization or by using laptop systems brought in the client’s environment by the QRC team.
  • For Offsite code review to be conducted, the application source code can be securely shared via QRC Portal or by other secure medium provided by the organization.

QRC follows a testing checklist approach that ensures that every aspect of the source code is tested thoroughly:
