Source Code Review

What is Source Code Review?

Buguard helps you to produce security processes, awareness, and services. This process includes validating the existing security issues and doing a customized vulnerabilities analysis, validating the risk levels, providing you the detailed report of this process which contains the discovered vulnerabilities and the description, exploitation, steps to reproduce, proof of concept and the real world scenarios for every vulnerability and provides you a detailed guide on how to remediate the issues and mitigate the risk level and improve your security layers.

Source Code Review Methodology

  • Preparation & Threat Modeling

    Our development team conducts a more in-depth examination of the coding involved, the current danger, and which coding should prioritize for review. We discover any missing strings or unnecessary coding left in the application by going over the code.

  • Code Analysis

    Value Mentor conducts analysis using two distinct approaches. Depending on the situation, we use either one or both.

  • Automated analysis

    Automated tools are used to examine each coding sequence and its related output, then compared to the necessary result. Manual analysis entails inspecting the application code line by line for logical flaws, insecure cryptography use, insecure system settings, and other known platform concerns.

  • Report

    Our analysis includes an executive summary that highlights business risks and detailed concerns with proposed corrective measures.

  • Review of Findings

    The reports evaluate the entity's technical team and best practice techniques to address its offers, or we will provide a "fast and dirty" solution for the interim time.


Reveal and arrange security vulnerabilities.

Maintain trust for customers and company image.

Ensure business continuity.

Demonstrates the real risk of vulnerabilities.


  • Brief about our tests, achievements and findings
  • List of vulnerabilities, their classification and threat level
  • Changes we induced in the system for mending it our way
  • Devices and systems we used and protocols we followed
  • Sudden and far-sighted recommendations.

Final Reporting


Estimation of over-all scope and risk assessment will be calculated in the first itself. The complexity of the system will also be defined. Basically, we gather as much information as we can analyze it deeply, and come up with a solution.

  • It’s a highly disciplined process and requires detail to the attention which we are indebted to do
  • The documentation will be in detail and extensive
  • All the stake-holders of the project will be kept well informed throughout the project
  • Our approach towards every project will be customized according to the nature of the environment.
  • Yes, we do!

    2-4 weeks is the average time we take. However, the size of the environment obviously will have a huge impact on the duration of the test.
