Code Review Services

Spotting Imperfections, Driving Improvements

In software development since 1989, ScienceSoft offers all-around code review services to help improve all aspects of code quality: from clarity and maintainability to security and compliance.

Code Review Services
Code Review Services

Code review services involve manual and/or automated examinations of application source code, performed by independent IT professionals able to identify the flaws that can compromise code quality and security. Expert code review helps improve source code performance, clarity, scalability, and maintainability as well as fortify software against cyberattacks.

The Scope of Our Code Review Services

SAST – automated security code review

We reveal:

  • Encryption errors: weak encryption algorithms or strong encryption algorithms with weak implementation (e.g., insecure key storage).
  • Code injection vulnerabilities.
  • XSS (cross-site scripting) vulnerabilities.
  • Buffer overflows: more data is put into the buffer than it can handle.
  • Race conditions: performing two or more operations at the same time.

Manual security-focused code review

We check:

  • Auditing and logging mechanisms.
  • Input/data validation mechanisms.
  • Impersonation/delegation mechanisms.
  • Session management.
  • Communication security.
  • The security of connection strings.
  • Input/output operations security.
  • The presence of serialization filtering.
  • Reflection mechanisms.
  • The presence of obfuscation.
  • If the code is thread-safe.

Additionally, we can:

  • Simulate parameter manipulation, SQL and script injections.
  • Evaluate the security of access to the development infrastructure and codebase.

All-around code review

In addition to SAST and manual review of code security, we check:

  • If descriptive names for code variables are in place.
  • If comments about what particular code functions and methods do are present.
  • If documentation on what the whole code does and what its dependencies are is in place.
  • If the developers can take advantage of ready frameworks and reusable components to get work done faster.
  • If the practice of splitting code into shorter units is observed.
  • If the code is portable.
  • If effective version control is implemented.
  • If linter tools (SonarQube, ESLint) are used.
  • If exception-handling mechanisms are effective.
  • If the required security mechanisms are in place, and more.

Success Stories by ScienceSoft

What Our Customers Value

ScienceSoft has been a life savior for us and our players when we were about to release our video game The Cycle Frontier and were facing immediate issues in terms of backend scalability. Their combination of expert knowledge at Microsoft Azure .NET and great agile collaboration skills allowed us to start working fast and effectively together in solving problems which allowed us to release. We are forever grateful for the help ScienceSoft provided us and would recommend anyone who is in a similar situation.
