With a surge in application development, and developers under time pressure to provide new functionality, attacks against mobile apps are having devastating effects on organisations. Mobile devices and the applications they use have quickly become a core part of everyday life, which is why mobile application security testing is a must when looking to fortify your business against cyberattacks.

Who is it for?

Who is it for?

This service is for organisations who develop mobile applications, that handle sensitive data or interact with backend systems. Just as bespoke web applications can create paths in for malicious users, so can mobile applications.
Whether it’s an application developed for public use or something internal for you team, we can give an independent view to the risk exposure it causes for your business.

How can we help?

How can we help?

Our Mobile Application Security Testing service will find vulnerabilities, prioritise them and recommend remedial actions. This will help you to understand and then mitigate your risks.
For development teams, we will also help you integrate secure development practices into your development lifecycle, baking in security-by-design and improving the security of subsequent applications.
In addition to penetration testing applications, we can also provide code-assisted penetration testing – where we review the code alongside the penetration testing activities to allow for a more efficient security assessment or to allow for a higher level of assurance.

What we test

What we test

Our mobile application testing methodology looks at the system as a whole. We review the application itself, but also the interactions with backend systems such as APIs and data stores.

Using the OWASP Mobile Top 10 as a foundation, we review all areas of application functionality, such as:

  • Application logic – Abuse of functionality and logical flaws within applications.
  • Authentication – Username enumeration, brute force attacks, and credential stuffing.
  • Authorisation – Insufficient credential and session management.
  • Cryptography – A review of the cryptographic configuration of sensitive data in storage and transit.
  • Code Review – We can review code for deprecated or vulnerable functions, as well as reviewing the quality of security implementations.
