Software code audit services
The real value of a software security audit lies in understanding all the intricacies of the existing code. An audit report highlights potential integration challenges, code flexibility, and security risks. It may also imply the best practices for fixing problems and contain recommendations for improving the product.

Benefits of software code audit services
Poor system architecture and hidden vulnerabilities can cost your project a fortune, forcing you to spend more to improve and strengthen product features. You might also experience unexamined security failings that could seriously impact a business and customers.
With our security code audit, you get reassurance that your product’s source code is in good condition. And you get a wide range of other benefits along the way:
Adhering to coding standards
When inspecting a software code, there are four core code standards to consider — maintainability, reliability, efficiency, and portability. All of them have a great impact on overall product quality. We evaluate your code through the prism of our professional competence and learn what is needed to align it with coding best practices.
Your application should adhere to industry-standard encryption and not expose user data. We will make an extra evaluation of the security aspects of your product, which will allow us to spot dangerous bugs and other weaknesses. We will identify the red flags that you need to be aware of.
Our code audit also comes with a series of reviews to address vulnerabilities and risks connected to your code. We detect security flaws or database abnormalities that may lead to data leakage and other negative circumstances. We can talk about the different efficient ways flaws can be avoided or fixed.
Hidden flaws can cripple your system and influence scaling efforts at the worst possible moment. Through risk mitigation, we help your product perform at its best. Our code audit will identify possible issues and give you the time to make a proper judgment of how and when to address them for the sake of better performance.

How it works
A code audit process needs both time and analysis of the source code lines by software audit services. We recommend coordinating automated and manual testing to keep the project development smooth. The following four steps will help while conducting a code audit.
Request a code audit
The initiation stage helps define the goals you want to achieve during a personalized code audit. We need information about current problems with software and project expectations. All the information can be shared during a one-on-one meeting or by questionnaire submission.
Provide access to the repository
A product owner should give access to all the files and services so that our specialists can inspect the source code and understand the inner structure. After providing access to a repository, it is also necessary to share the following:
- Files with source code
- Information about product development workflow
- Login credentials to extra services
- Access to servers
We conduct a code audit
Our experts check technologies, frameworks, and libraries. They then analyze the codebase manually by using code inspection software. They also review performance and complete security checks.
Receive code audit report
We prepare a final code audit report with all the issues indicated in the previous steps. We also add comments to our report indicating the reasons for critical security threats or vulnerabilities and whether they need to be fixed immediately. Our company makes the reports more accessible for customers by adding graphs and comparisons for a better visual description of the existing situation.
When do you need a code audit?
The true value of application security audit lies in finding out crucial information about the code. An audit report can shed light on potential integration difficulties, code flexibility, tech documentation, etc. To be more specific, here are several reasons why customers might need a code audit.
After a business purchase or investment, you have an app or other type of digital product that needs to be audited. This way, you can find out how much time and money you need to invest in the product to make it work properly. If you are looking for investors or selling a digital project, performing a comprehensive inspection allows you to minimize possible market risks and support the necessary changes.
Our tech stack
A comprehensive analysis of source code offered by the development team of DICEUS is intended to discover bugs, security breaches, or violations of programming conventions. It is an integral element of the defensive programming paradigm, which aims to eliminate errors before the software launch.
For the smooth operation of your software product, the code must be viable. It is important to audit the code to detect weaknesses in the code, determine scalability, enhance the project security, and provide better maintainability.
IT software services aim to polish your software project from current flaws, whether it comes to internal architecture or security. They focus on high coding standards when assessing risk mitigation capabilities. After examining the existing performance of your software, they may offer ways to improve the code.
The process consists of several simple steps. Customers request a code audit by providing detailed information on current issues and goals to be achieved and giving access to the repository. Our specialists then conduct a code inspection and create an audit report in the end.
