Penetration Test for Mobile Apps

Many companies and organizations are developing mobile applications. These applications store considerable amounts of information and communicate with external systems.
The Mobile Penetration Test comprises a set of tests that focus on detecting weaknesses in apps developed for Android and iOS devices.
The testing methodology is Mobile OWASP TOP 10. It includes testing the application installed on end devices, API tests, identification, business logic, checking how the information is stored on end devices and how data is transmitted securely, weaknesses that allow information leakage, and more.

Who would be likely candidates for Mobile Penetration Tests?

  • Companies interested in checking whether hackers can perform various malicious acts that could harm infrastructure or end users.
  • Companies that their customers require them to present a PT testing certification.

What are the advantages of performing a Mobile Penetration Test?

  • An expert in the mobile field examines the system, and the client receives a formal list of findings and guidelines for dealing with weaknesses that are discovered.
  • The tests guarantee compliance with customer requirements, and regulations such as Privacy Protection, GDPR, and HIPAA.
  • Unfortunately, software development and information security do not necessarily go hand in hand. Hence, it is vital to ensure your systems meet a recognized international cyber security standard.

What are the highlights of the test?

As part of the tests, all required categories will be checked in accordance with the OWASP methodology.

  • Improper Platform Usage.
  • Insecure Data Storage.
  • Insecure Communication.
  • Insecure Authentication.
  • Insufficient Cryptography.
  • Insecure Authorization.
  • Client Code Quality.
  • Code Tampering.
  • Reverse Engineering.
  • Extraneous Functionality.

A Mobile Penetration Test requires a tester with over five years of experience. Professional expertise decisively impacts the number of findings and the ability to assess their severity. Professionalism must never be trifled with! Always verify that the Pentester is a company employee, has the necessary certifications, and has professional liability insurance.
