Security researchers, code analysts, and security consultants analyze third-party source code, which can be already running in production environments, for security threats. Their goal is to quickly discover security vulnerabilities, determine if and how these are exploitable, and what kind of risk they pose to the infrastructure.
RIPS significantly speeds up the workflow of security professionals by automating the precise vulnerability identification process and by minimizing the risk of overlooking dangerous code in large code bases. The interactive vulnerability dashboard allows to quickly evaluate findings and to summarize detected issues for the final analysis report.
Developers of PHP applications extend existing frameworks and write new source code from scratch. Their goal is to find a reasonable tradeoff between building and shipping new applications fast, and implementing the right security mechanisms in order to protect their sensitive data, servers, and reputation. Hence, vulnerability detection must be very fast, and the process of understanding and fixing issues must be even faster.
RIPS is the fastest static code analysis tool available. Detected issues can be reviewed in real-time and a scan finishes within minutes. Detailed instructions allow to easily prioritize and understand all findings, so that the most critical issues can be patched first. Our API allows to seamlessly integrate an automated security analysis into the development lifecycle.
Web hoster, network operators, and administrators face the big challenge of running multiple web applications, partly with an unknown origin of the source code. At the same time, reliable protection of the infrastructure must be maintained and the attack surface kept small. A security analysis for thousands of installations must run fast, requires a powerful automation process, and produce a high level overview of the security state for all installations.
With the help of a powerful API, our fast and precise security analysis can be fully automated, scheduled, and integrated into the risk management. Operators can be alarmed when vulnerable code was added and actions for websites with a critical security status can be taken.
