Mobile Application Penetration Testing overview


Mobile application penetration testing is a specialist activity that validates the security controls of your mobile applications and identifies vulnerabilities for remediation.

Our team of specialist penetration testers’ goal is to identify security flaws in custom written mobile applications, its interaction with the device platform (Android/iOS), the communication between the application and the server-side systems (API’s, Web Applications etc.), as well as broader interaction with the corporate or consumer ecosystems that control authentication, authorisation and mobile device management.

The focus is not only on testing security controls that have been applied, but also on identifying faults and weaknesses that the developers or architects may have been unaware of or overlooked.

A mobile application penetration test will provide you detailed reports that identify any vulnerabilities or weaknesses detected. These will be prioritised according to criticality. You will also receive recommended remediation activities so you can take steps to strengthen the security of your mobile applications and safeguard your organisation’s critical information.
