Whether it’s an issue like hard-coded credentials or flaws surrounding encryption implementation, Coalfire logically breaks down the application in a manner that allows for a thoughtful review of the most security-critical features and functionality, resulting in actionable, development-level remediation strategies for all issues identified.
The sophistication of tools and attack methodologies has exposed information, applications, and developers to an onslaught of risk. Software development is an iterative process that requires independent code reviews be incorporated into the SDLC at critical audit checkpoints.
To ensure a comprehensive review of the code is performed, manual review of code will be augmented by, where applicable, automated static analysis via commercial, custom-built, and open-source tools.
In addition to the review of source code, Coalfire examines the design for weaknesses and flaws, like legacy interoperability or insecure architectural dependencies that may result in a security compromise.
