Eon IT conducts Code Audit from the perspective to security and performance. Our team look at the methodologies, working practices, design documentation, test frameworks, tools, techniques and source code as part of the code audit service. The processes followed by the development team are also scrutinized, and recommendations are provided.
The code audit recommendations are key to reducing risk and vulnerabilities in the software being designed by your in house or outsourced software partner. Security vulnerabilities and areas of risk are clearly identified. These are reported to the client in a comprehensive report. The purpose of code audit is to find bugs, security breaches or knowing if the proper programming conventions are being followed.
Usually at the time of developing an application, irrespective how effective team lead has lead the developers to ensure there is no security hole, you can still find a lot of areas where there are lot of vulnerabilities. While outside threats must be guarded against, business must also protect against potential threats from within their own networks. Eon IT believe in properly designing the strategy for code audit and we also share the test cases with the customer to facilities the clarity in the process.
Code Audit is available on a one-time or recurring (subscription) basis. Once we receive your request for an code audit, our application consultant interviews the appropriate members of your development team to gain an understanding of key issues relating to the application/programming to be analyzed.
Although there are many different scanning tools available (both open source and commercial), no single tool provides the most accurate audit in every situation. Each tool overlooks certain instances of open source usage and also reports false positives, so that’s why our team use a combination of tools to drive the desired results. In fact we have also created many custom scripts that help us eliminating false positive and increase accuracy in our report.
