Application auditing services are becoming increasingly important in today’s digital landscape where enterprises rely heavily on software applications to run their operations. As these applications store and process sensitive data, it is critical for organizations to comply with regulatory requirements. As with security vulnerabilities, performance issues can severely hinder the operation of an application.

Application auditing helps organizations identify potential security vulnerabilities and compliance issues in their software applications while providing essential checkups of all the vital systems. Basically, application audit is needed to guarantee a continued sustainability and success of your projects.

In application audit, our main value comes from the extensive experience in application modernization working with a variety of programming languages, such as Delphi, COBOL, Informix 4GL, Progress 4GL, VB.NET, Visual Basic, Pascal, PHP, SQL, Java, JavaScript, C#, C++ and many more.

Why Application Audit is Important

Handshake Icon

Application consulting may prove beneficial in the following cases:

  • Poor application performance that negatively impacts business operations
  • Functionality enhancement has become more time-consuming and expensive
  • Code maintainability issues.
  • Security compliance issues

Application Audit Process

Application audit stages

The Ispirer application consulting team consists of highly experienced professionals who are proficient in working with a wide range of programming languages. Our seasoned engineers uncover measurable improvement of your end-user experience through applying best practices accumulated during previous projects.

As part of the project, our experts need a detailed description of the technologies stack and the source code of the application including its modules. However, the requirements of customers’ security policies often do not allow to provide the application code. In such a case we can get access to the server or infrastructure where the application code resides.

Project duration depends on the code volume and its complexity.

1. Project plan development

  • Gathering customer requirements and expectations.
  • Communicating with project managers, application architects and users.
  • Obtaining and configuring access to all the necessary system components.

2. Server and infrastructure performance audit

  • Server configuration check-up.
  • Operating systems configuration check-up.
  • Infrastructure configuration analysis.
  • Resource (CP, RAM, etc.) load check-up.

3. Code Review

  • Code compliance with best practices, coding standards and requirements check-up.
  • Descriptive names for code variables check-up.
  • Compliance with the practice of splitting the code into shorter blocks check-up
  • Code portability check-up
  • Exception-handling mechanisms check-up
  • Code maintainability check-up

4. Security-focused code review

We check:

  • Auditing and logging mechanisms.
  • Input data validation mechanisms.
  • Impersonation/delegation mechanisms.
  • Session management.
  • Communication security.
  • Security of connection strings.
  • Input/output operations security.
  • Serialization filtering.
  • Reflection mechanisms.
  • Obfuscation.
  • Thread safety.

5. Performance audit

We identify:

  • Code redundancy
  • Memory, CPU, discs and network usage misallocation
  • Database performance issues

6. Final report

Generation of a report containing a list of identified issues along with the recommendations on how to fix them.

Main report items:

  • List of the checks performed at each stage of the audit.
  • List of issues identified at each stage of the audit.
  • Recommendations and best practices to resolve the major issues.
  • Indication of the most critical issues.

Application Audit Outcomes

As a result of the application consulting, you will receive a comprehensive report containing the following information:

  • General evaluation of the application performance.
  • General assessment of the application security compliance and key vulnerabilities.
  • Application bottlenecks.
  • Code maintainability issues.
  • Recommendations on how to resolve the identified issues.

What Our Customers Say

"Beckman Coulter provided as much of the information as we could but there was a lot of functionality that we did not know. This is where Ispirer talents became apparent as they forensically reengineered functionality."

"We are now successfully running live on the new system, with the updated PB apps. I want to express my thanks to Ispirer team. You made this project a success!!! I was happy to work with you and would highly recommend Ispirer!"

"Because of Ispirer and MnMTK, our team was able to devote its time to build the infrastructure for new Java programs instead of spending time on converting code. The produced Java code met all our maintainability, readability and performance requirements."

"This approach was very successful avoiding any confusion at the first stage, and achieved high conversion rate in the end. The project was completed successfully, they say they couldn't make it without MnMTK 2017 and excellent extension support from lspirer."

"At the onset of the engagement the Ispirer MnMTK was expanded to meet the specific requirements of our migration prior to being delivered for our use. Once this phase of the project was complete we were provided with the expanded toolkit."

"We have found the Ispirer team to be knowledgeable and responsive and we have found the tooling to be flexible enough to be easily adapted to our coding conventions."
