Use Cases

Who is it for?


Without a good product--and a secure product--you cannot grow your business. You cannot risk shipping applications plagued with vulnerable code. Executives deploy RIPS across their organizations to make sure their developers are building applications that have the right security mechanisms in place. With RIPS leading PHP code analysis, executives can ensure that their teams are fixing code vulnerabilities as early as possible in the software development lifecycle, which reduces time spent on costly rework.

Get things right the first time with RIPS costs less.

  • Automate and integrate security analysis into your software development lifecycle.
  • Constantly train your developer team about latest security threats.
  • Demonstrate and measure concrete progress in security.
  • Fix vulnerabilities as early as possible and at the lowest cost point.
  • Build more secure applications from the ground up and save hours of rework.
  • Meet compliance requirements and industry standards.


Magento selected RIPS technology to enhance the scanning capabilities of all Magento products including third party extensions. Using RIPS API, Magento streamlined its Threat Intelligence pipeline to provide automated scanning and threat identification. RIPS Tech team support is outstanding, ensuring Magento an easy set up and operational excellence.

PHP Developers

PHP application developers extend existing frameworks and write new source code from scratch. They cannot risk shipping applications plagued with vulnerable code to their customers. Developers use the RIPS PHP security scanner to make sure they can ship applications that have the right security mechanisms deployed. Their customers can rest easy knowing that their sensitive data and servers will not be corrupted by applications that haven’t been built with security in mind.

RIPS is the most accurate PHP code analysis tool available today.

  • Seamlessly integrate automated security analysis into the application development lifecycle with our open API.
  • Review detected issues in real-time.
  • Scan large code bases in minutes.
  • Review instructions to easily prioritize and understand all findings.
  • Patch the most critical issues first.
  • Save time and focus on development.

We've been using SAST products from a couple of big and well known vendors but the results we were getting were little more than elaborate script searches with too much noise resulting in a painful waste of time. RIPS provides highly accurate analysis finding bugs that were not detected by the other tools, is more elegant to navigate, and it saves hours of work.

Security Professionals

Security researchers, code analysts, application security specialists, and security consultants analyze third-party source code for security threats during application evaluations. They also periodically analyze applications while they are running in production environments. Security professionals are the last line of defense against the cyber threats, and they need to quickly determine if there are vulnerabilities in their PHP code, if these can be exploited, and what damage the vulnerabilities could cause to the infrastructure.

With RIPS, security professionals are able to significantly speed up their application scanning workflow.

  • Automates the precise vulnerability identification process.
  • Detects complex security vulnerabilities without false positive noise.
  • Minimizes the risk of overlooking vulnerable code in large projects.
  • Quickly evaluates findings with RIPS’ interactive dashboard.
  • Summarizes detected issues in a final analysis report.
  • Reports to clients and internal stakeholders what needs to be done to secure their infrastructure.

We've invested in the onsite RIPS product to enhance the speed at which we can assess the many custom PHP Wordpress plugins and management tools our customers deploy. Spending less time finding vulnerabilities means we can spend more time writing proof of concept exploits which adds value to our engagements!
