Mobile Application Penetration Testing

Reach out to Secure your Apps

As mobile application use continues to grow, organisations are facing new threats around device theft and sensitive information.


Mobile Application Penetration Testing

This service is used to assess the threats of applications on mobile devices as well as the API vulnerabilities to get an understanding of what real-world threats and attackers would use to exploit sensitive information or gain control of systems and applications.

We emulate the efforts a real-world adversary would perform in order to provide a realistic view of the opportunities an attacker may take in order to compromise mobile application/device and gain unauthorized access to sensitive data or take over the system(s) completely.

Our thorough testing process follows a methodical approach based off industry standards like OSSTMM (Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual), PTES (Penetration Testing Execution Standard), and OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) Mobile Security Testing Guide (MSTG).

At a minimum our mobile application penetration tests check for the OWASP Mobile Top 10 vulnerabilities:

  • Improper Platform Usage

  • Insecure Data Storage

  • Insecure Communication

  • Insecure Authentication

  • Insufficient Cryptography
  • Insecure Authorization

  • Client Code Quality

  • Code Tampering

  • Reverse Engineering

  • Extraneous Functionality


Benefits of Mobile Application Penetration Testing

We utilize various tools and manual testing techniques in order to:

Identify vulnerabilities and flaws present in the mobile application/device

Ensure all of your data is properly protected and there are no areas of vulnerability

Validate identified vulnerabilities to determine the level of severity in context to your organization

Consistent maintenance and audits of your security systems with mitigation strategies in place in the event of a breach

Address vulnerabilities utilizing the provided guidance and recommendations

Ensure everything is up-to-date and compliant with current standards and practices

Once we are completed, an in-depth point-in-time report is provided of all of the vulnerabilities present and provide recommendations and solutions to your team on how to improve the security of the mobile environment.
