Are there IT security experts who evaluate coding for vulnerabilities?

I have been working on creating my own business website and complimentary mobile app--something that troubles me is that I constantly learn about some new way that hackers can exploit coding and either execute malicious commands, take over your system, or access your database and steal information.

I have been trying to Google around to find security experts who can evaluate coding and point out possible vulnerabilities, but I am only finding people who come on site to evaluate network security.

Are there any such consultants who provide such a service?

    there are code optimizers out there, but it is a very niche and often expensive service, and they usually work either in-person, or require payment upfront.

    if you're on a budget, you might check fiverr. plenty of tech "pros" trying to make a name on there.

    t's typically a joint effort by security staff, development and operations teams, who determine the most effective path for remediation or mitigation of each vulnerability. Specific remediation steps might include: Introduction of new security procedures
