APPLICATION SECURITY

Today’s business environment requires added security to meet the demands of customers, partners, and government regulatory agencies. Failing to invest in security during the early stages of product and software development can lead to increased costs and threaten revenue and productivity down the road.

IOActive is committed to helping you produce high quality software. Let us show you how to adopt a holistic programming approach that keeps you secure while maximizing your competitive advantage. As one of only three firms chosen by Microsoft to perform operating system source code security review, and a partner in the Microsoft Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) Pro Network, IOActive is a recognized leader in application security.

We understand that your customers depend on you to protect the integrity and reliability of their systems. Our customized application and code auditing services are tailored to each client’s development process. By approaching security as a continuous thread that runs through the design, development, testing, and deployment phases, we help create proactive, methodical, repeatable processes that detect and address risks before they become problems.

Code Review Services

Code reviews are key to protecting critical business systems from cyber-attacks and meeting the demands of regulatory compliance. While it may be tempting to rely on tools and internal processes, without the proper training and experience, it is easy to misinterpret results and difficult to create an actionable remediation strategy.

IOActive consultants have years of code auditing experience and routinely assist organizations with highly complex application security challenges. We recognize that software development is an iterative process, so we work directly with your development team to meet your security criteria and functionality requirements. Our approach works with your development process and includes checkpoints for each product stage.

IOActive’s hands-on process goes beyond the limitations of automated vulnerability scanning tools. Our experienced consultants know how to identify vulnerable points in a design, such as legacy interoperability, and uncover flaws that can result in a security compromise. We deliver detailed documentation of the location and nature of each problem we find, and our consultants advise your developers on how to address the immediate problem and avoid similar problems in the future.

IOActive’s code review services include a broad range of languages and platforms:  C/C++, Objective-C, Java, Delphi, ASM, Perl, Python, Ruby, ASP.NET, C#, and PHP.

Web Application Security

Applications built on web technologies and HTTP-based protocols form the backbone of today’s Internet. Their complex relationship with evolving web browser technology and backend business logic makes them prone to a unique assortment of Internet-based threats.

Additional services we offer include:

  • Software assurance training
  • SDL implementation and training
  • Application threat modeling
  • Application architecture design reviews
  • Denial-of-Service (DoS) assessments

Compiled Application Security

Whether it’s a “fat-client”, “thin-client”, plug-in, library, or commercial software package, compiled applications form the backbone of modern client-server business operations. These applications are vulnerable to a wide range of threats, from compromised data integrity to a breach of corporate systems.

IOActive works with many of the biggest software vendors around the world to make their software products more robust against hackers and the latest reverse engineering techniques.

  • Software reverse engineering
  • Software assurance training
  • SDL implementation and training
  • Application threat modeling
  • Application architecture design reviews

Operating System Security

Modern operating systems are under attack from a unique set of adversaries, tools, and methodologies. Security flaws in an underlying operating system can have devastating effects on both the device running the system and the organization where it is deployed.

  • Software reverse engineering
  • Software assurance training
  • SDL implementation and training
  • Application threat modeling
  • Application architecture design reviews
  • Firmware and device driver assessments
