OUR MOBILE APPLICATION PENETRATION TESTING SERVICES

What is Mobile Application Penetration Testing?

Mobile application penetration testing is a type of assessment designed to identify and address vulnerabilities in Android and iOS apps that could be exploited by hackers. With millions of consumers relying on mobile applications every day to manage their most sensitive information, companies are now constrained to integrate penetration tests as an integral part of their application’s development cycle in order to protect their users’ sensitive information.

Our Mobile Application Penetration Testing Services

Following a proven methodology based on the OWASP standard, our Web application penetration testing services identify the most common vulnerabilities and even the most subtle business logic flaws.
METHODOLOGY

Our Mobile Application Security Testing Methodology

Our approach is based on manual techniques and goes beyond a typical scan, allowing you to identify complex vulnerabilities present in modern applications that have become the primary focus of today’s hackers. Here is a breakdown of our approach divided in three distinct types of tests, ensuring that we leave no stones unturned:

Static Testing

Config files analysis: URL disclosure, server credentials, cryptographic keys, hardcoded passwords, etc.

Reverse engineering: Reversing tools, device binding, impede comprehension, impede dynamic analysis and tampering, etc.

Dynamic Testing

Input Validation: Injection flaws, malicious input acceptance, buffer overflow, unrestricted file upload, business logic validation, improper error handling and disclosure, improper session management, log tampering, etc.

Server-side Testing

Web servers: Directory traversal, injection flaws, sensitive file exposure, web server misconfiguration exploitation, etc.

API/Web services: Authorization exploitation, IDOR, Injection flaws, API business logic bypass, API misconfigurations exploitaton, etc.

OWASP Mobile Top 10

Our vulnerability tests integrate the OWASP Mobile Top 10 standards to identify vulnerabilities unique to each application. Our tests are focused on the architecture, the hosting environment, the security measures in place and an evaluation of the best practices in application security.
