What is a Source Code Review?

Source Code Review is the line-by-line assessment of the application codebase so that any security flaws or backdoors left in the coding of the application can be identified and patched at the earliest.

ValueMentor is a CREST Penetration Testing Service Provider in the UK authorized to perform secure code reviews. We help you evaluate, detect & prioritize complete security vulnerabilities of an organization’s critical application codebase, contributing to application readiness.


In other words, a Secure Code Review, as referred to in cyber security terms, uncovers complete potential security vulnerabilities present in the application codebase. Therefore, all security flaws resulting from these vulnerabilities could be identified and patched to acceptable levels.

ValueMentor Source Code Review Services in the UK help evaluate, detect & prioritize complete security vulnerabilities of your critical applications codebase. We also provide an effective remediation plan and support as a part of the Secure Code Review process.

Source Code Review Methodology

Prepare & Threat Modelling

Threat Modelling is one significant part of our Secure Code Review / Source Code Audit, as it enables a comprehensive picture of the attack surface in the target environment with an idea of potential threat actors.

Our developing team undergoes a deeper study of the coding involved, the existing threat, and which all codings should go prioritized for review. By extensive review of the codebase, we help find out any missing strings or unwanted coding left in the program.

Code Analysis

ValueMentor conducts Secure Code Review based on two different methods. Depending on the requirement, we implement either one or both: –

  1. Automated analysis: The analysis uses automated tools to review each and every sequence of the codebase and obtains the corresponding output. And, a comparison of it with the required output gets performed.
  2. Manual analysis: Manual analysis involve line-by-line inspection of the application code to find logical errors, insecure use of cryptography, insecure system configurations, and other known issues specific to the platform.


Our Secure Code Review Report includes an executive summary highlighting business risk and other security issues with suggested remediation actions based on the priority and criticality of issues.

Findings Review

The reports get reviewed by the enterprise technical team, also suggest the best-practice measures to address them, or we’ll provide a “quick and dirty” solution for the interim period.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. Why do you need a secure code review?2023-02-28T06:26:00+00:00
  • Lower the number of delivery faults identified at a later stage in the SDLC.
  • Reduce the time developers spend fixing late-stage defects.
  • Lessen the number of bugs and security vulnerabilities going into the production cycle.
  • Enhance consistency, quality and maintainability across codebases.
  • Improve collaboration, learning, and developer productivity.
  • Improve ROI by helping make processes faster and safer with fewer resources and time.
2. When to perform a secure code review?2023-02-28T06:22:27+00:00

Security must be involved across the entire development lifecycle. Performing frequent peer reviews would increase the overall code quality and help developers exercise secure coding practices that reduce the number of reported issues in the later phase of the application production. However, considering used time and cost, the review process best fits towards the end of the code development cycle when most or all functionalities has got implemented.

3. What does code review as a service focuses on?2023-02-28T06:22:52+00:00

Code review as a service concentrate on seven security mechanisms or areas. The process helps discover the soundness of the application source code in each of the following areas: –

  • Authentication.
  • Authorization.
  • Session management.
  • Data validation.
  • Error handling.
  • Logging.
  • Encryption.
