Secure Code Review


Deep-Dive Inspection to Find the Bugs that Automated Tools Miss


Every programming language has its unique properties. Python is designed for readability, Java is “write-one-run-everywhere”, and C applications must handle their own memory management. Similarly, each language has security quirks which must be considered during a thorough source code audit.

Outer Orbit has application security experts well-versed in a wide range of languages, from basic Assembly and C code up to high-level scripting languages. A review with language-specific security expertise can mean the difference between identifying critical flaws and having a major data breach.


Identify Flaws Earlier in the Development Lifecycle

Penetration testing on production applications provides invaluable awareness of current vulnerabilities and potential damage if exploited. However it does have a reactive nature to it – testing after applications go public means identified vulnerabilities could have already been exploited. Secure code reviews identifies bugs before they get pushed to production apps – and found by attackers.

Targeted Audits for Your Most Important Software

Using a hybrid approach, Outer Orbit consultants utilize best-in-class code review tools to scan full codebase and deep manual examination for areas of critical importance.

These select functions, such as user authentication and client-supplied parameters, contain the majority of security flaws– so that’s where we perform the deep dive.


Integrated Code Review for Each New Push

Outer Orbit offers both stand-alone source audits and integrated code review as an ongoing part of a client’s development process. When incorporated into the regular SDLC, our application experts become a seamless part of your development team, ensuring each code push has been thoroughly reviewed by qualified security authorities.
