|A Research done by IEEE Security and Privacy shows that 85% of the bugs are introduced at coding stage. While cost of fixing the bug at coding stage is $25, this cost increases significantly the later you find the bug. Finding a bug using Black box testing during field stage is $1,000.
There are two major advantages of source code analysis
• If source code analysis is used along with SDLC, it results in enormous cost saving in terms of early
detection and fixing of problems. It also reduces the business risk significantly as black box techniques
alone, used towards the end of SDLC cycle, can’t provide 100% security assurance.
• Even in case where security testing happens towards end of the SDLC, Source code analysis helps save
significant time for developers finding the root cause of issues in the code. Moreover, Source analysis in
conjunction with pen tests provides you the maximum testing coverage.
Figure shown below shows use of Static Source Code Analysis in SDLC
|CresTech Security Center, powered by Armorize Technologies, provides Source Code Analysis Service to enable organizations find out security holes directly with-in the code. The result of this service is source code auditing with line level remediation advice. We also provide detailed recommendation for the review and training to the teams, if required, in implementing those recommendations.|
