Source code analysis and binary analysis are important to highlight flaws in software without needing to run it, allowing for analysis of software even when it’s not complete. While taken together, these form “static code analysis,” also called “static software testing”. Static code analysis is an important code security mechanism that organizations can use to integrate security throughout the software development process.
Offensive360 is the world’s first AI-driven static code analysis technology that understands as well as attacks source code from all angles by using a unique technology built from the ground up “virtual compilers”.
Unlike others, the Offensive360 virtual compilers perform all-in-one malware checks on the binary embedded within a source code. Also catching malware, SCA “software composition analysis”, IaC “Infrastructure as a Code analysis inspecting open-source libraries and license checks. All in one product and one subscription without placing any limits to the lines of code or number of scans/developers.
Similarly, we create a (unique) methodology by creating a virtual compiler for each language we process. This allows us to connect the points for DFG “Data flow graph” analysis. In simple terms, Offensive360 “Understands” the source code, not like other tools where they process the source code as textual data.
Offensive360 virtual compiler technology discovers hidden vulnerabilities, design flaws, and verifies if key security controls are implemented. Because Offensive360 uses a combination of scanning tools and manual review to detect insecure coding practices, backdoors, injection flaws, cross-site scripting flaws. Insecure handling of external resources, weak cryptography, etc.
Similarly, we use AST which is a graph representation of source code. This is primarily used by virtual compilers to read code and generate the target binaries. An AST is usually the result of the syntax analysis phase of an Offensive360 virtual compiler in the languages we support.
The first step of a virtual compiler code review is to conduct a thorough study of the application. Which will follow by the creation of a comprehensive threat profile based on the source code’s context.
Our virtual compiler studies the code layout to develop a specific code reviewer plan as well as uses a hybrid approach. Where automated scans are verified and a custom AI model is generated.
Once the code is analyzed, the next step in the virtual compiler code review process is to verify existing flaws and generate reports that provide solutions.
Easily detect flaws through code analysis and avoid the need to send test data to the application or software. Since access to the entire codebase of the application is available.
Evaluate the entire code layout of the application including areas that wouldn’t be analyzed in an application security test. Such as entry points for different inputs, internal interfaces and integrations, data handling and validation logic, and the use of external API’s and frameworks.
Overcome Testing Limitations
Uncover vulnerabilities and detect attack surfaces that automated code scans miss using security code. Similarly, reviews to detect weak algorithms, identify design flaws, find insecure configurations, and spot insecure coding practices.
Produce security code review reports that include an executive summary that lists strengths as well as weaknesses. Which provides detailed findings that include precise code-based solutions and fixes.
Secure sensitive data storage and suggest precise solutions customized for your developers with code-level suggestions. That includes more exhaustive checks to find all instances of common vulnerabilities.
Meet Compliance Standards
Satisfy industry regulations and compliance standards including PCI DSS, NIST 800, OWASP, HIPPA and more.
Our Offensive360 virtual compiler scans compiled and uncompiled code base. Also called binary code or byte code. In non-open-source projects, attempting to access the source of compiled code can raise licensing or copyright concerns. Offensive360 SAST operates outside these concerns. We use Static Application Security Testing (SAST) virtual compiler that can help analyze source code or compiled versions of code to help find security flaws.
Furthermore, our virtual compiler technology provides rapid results with a median scan time of only 90 seconds. Similarly, this allows developers to find, solve, and fix problems quickly in their development pipelines without introducing additional delays.
