Mobile Application Security Testing

Mobile application security testing is often an overlooked area when it comes to security assessments. Organizations often mistakenly assume that web application tests cover everything related to their mobile counterparts. However, this is not the case. Mobile apps are different from web apps in many ways, and they require a different approach to security testing. Our industry-leading experts can help dispel this myth and provide your organization with the mobile security assessments, training, and guidance it needs to stay safe in today’s ever-changing mobile landscape. Mobile application security testing is critical for any organization that wants to ensure the safety and privacy of their mobile app users.

8kSec Mobile Application Security Testing methodology can help your mobile application development teams to identify risks and vulnerabilities in mobile apps before they are distributed. We assesses the security of mobile apps by examining their source code, structure, and configuration.

Some of the mobile security risks we can help you test for include Android and iOS jailbreak vulnerabilities, insecure data storage, and weak authentication mechanisms. We can also help you test for vulnerabilities in built-in libraries and features, as well as third-party libraries. By performing mobile security testing, you can help ensure that your mobile app is secure and that your user’s data is safe.

Jailbreaking/Rooting your devices can allow attackers to access restricted parts of the operating system and install malicious apps. Mobile devices can be infected with malware if users download apps from untrusted sources or sideload custom applications. Our team can help organizations secure their mobile apps by identifying and addressing security vulnerabilities in application running on both Android and iOS devices. By increasing awareness of mobile security risks, you can help to reduce the chances of a data breach or other type of attack.
