Companies looking to reduce costs are increasingly outsourcing their development work. However, in addition to cost savings this brings challenges in maintaining a secure and highly stable environment. Meeting these challenges is important since security and stability not only help the bottom line, but the commitment to them ensures long-term adherence to coding best practices from your outsourcing partner.

When companies outsource their application development, the team tends to consist of developers with varying experience levels. Although the application may look as it was designed and functions as intended, the risk to stability and security lies in the potential patchwork of code that comprises the application. The main culprit when this happens is the inconsistent coding practices and methodologies of the development team. As a preventative measure, companies who elect to outsource development work, should utilize a master development gatekeeper to ensure their code is written in accordance with best practices considering security and maintainability to create a cohesive whole across multiple applications. Whether the gatekeeper is an internal resource, or an expert in the industry such as JKL Web Technologies, this is a critical step in the process.

Understanding this need from personal experiences, JKL Web Technologies is offering the new service of gatekeeping/code review to its already extensive suite. Managing Director Jeffrey Walton states, “with our expertise in providing our clients with solutions, it was only natural for us to offer our Sentinel Gatekeeping to assure companies are placing quality code into their production environment.” The Sentinel service allows clients to leverage all areas of JKL's expertise during the code review process including security, performance, maintainability and extensibility.

Ron Schlecht, Managing Partner for top cyber security firm BTB Security recently stated "I commend JKL for adding Sentinel Gatekeeping to their suite of services. This is a much-needed service offering, helping firms get ahead of application security flaws that commonly lead to breaches.”
