What Are The Risks With Your Mobile Apps?

Day by day, mobile applications are becoming too complex. As a result, their threat landscape is also expanding. An insecure app may result in leaking your sensitive personal or business data to other applications on the device.

How Can Our Cyber Security Professional Services Help?

Our holistic approach is to perform penetration tests that not only discover the online threats but also figure out the safety measures based on the industry standards.

We Help You By

Defining A New Scope

Before running an application assessment, we define a clear scope of the client. Transparent communication is required for us to build up a solid foundation to work on.

Local Data Storage

A mobile app holds many sensitive data like private information and user credentials. Our cybersecurity professional services ensure that your mobile app doesn’t expose your sensitive data anywhere else.

Gathering Information

We collect as much information as we can on the target with a diversified range of open source intelligence techniques and tools. The assembled information assists us to understand and check all the cyber risks precisely.

Attack & Penetration

We make sure to perform all application-layer attacks on your mobile apps by performing both automated and manual security scans to find all your possible vulnerabilities. After figuring things out, we run exploits on your mobile app to test its security. We use open-source scripts and different methods to gain a superior degree of penetration.


Why Mobile App Security Testing is important?

Mobile application security testing is kept ensuring that the application is fully functional and secure while in users’ environment. The increasing usage of mobile applications also increases the chances of data compromisation, leading to massive data breaches.

For preserving the individual and technological means, security testing is the main part. You don’t know that how attackers will penetrate your mobile application, invade your background systems, or steal your data. However, you can’t anticipate potential future situations and minimize associated risks. Predicting criminal behavior to find errors in the code and correct them before criminals exploit them is the focus.

Testers use automated and manual security tools to predict the behavior of an intruder entering the application’s environment to obtain information and/or access elevated permissions without proper authorization. Knowing security loopholes before the deployment of a mobile application, you can redesign the architecture of the application. In the pre-release phase, fixing these issues is cheaper than dealing with them later.

Once the application is in the user’s hand and then any issue arises, costs will get higher in maintenance. This phase will include not only technical issues but also legal, PR, and more. ISO 27001 certificate, HIPAA, FIPS 140-2, OWASP method, and sometimes authorized online safety law are some mandatory guidelines that should be applied in a mobile application. App security is the hygiene that all mobile application development agencies need to have and embrace in their applications.

What Is a Mobile Application Security Assessment?

In a mobile application security assessment, all the risks and potentially dangerous activities that could leave your network or applications vulnerable to attack are identified. The goal of security assessment is to secure mobile applications before or after releasing them on the market. Mobile app security testing includes both static and dynamic mobile security testing methods.

In static testing, the tester checks issue architecture, permissions, sensitive information disclosure, data storage, etc. Basic runtime application self-protection(RASP) i.e., jailbreak/root prevention, anti-debugging anti-reversing, weak code obfuscation is also being checked in this method.

Dynamic testing includes configuration issues, SSL pinning. SSL pinning allows attackers to intercept and alter data and sometimes sensitive information disclosure like usernames/passwords. It also includes information in error messages, fingerprinting in HTTP header and trace availability and even stack trace can be a major flaw.

Other issues like allowing 301 redirects insecure authentication, client code quality, insecure authorization, code tampering is also being checked in this section. The test follows the OWASP Top 10 mobile framework and complies with HIPAA rules and PCI DSS rules. Application security testing includes the most widely used platforms android and iOS. In-depth mobile app testing of these platforms includes unique behavioral analysis and privacy testing. 

Using both manual and automated analysis provides accurate and reliable verification of all critical aspects of the mobile environment from authentication, authorization, access control, cookie, and session management to encryption. Security assessment concludes a successful and safe use of a mobile application.

Mobile apps are an important part of the online business presence, and many businesses rely entirely on mobile apps to connect with users from around the world. It stores and processes a wide variety of important information from credit card data, Intellectual Property to medical records. This sensitive information can easily be misused by malicious attackers. Studies suggest that there may be as many as 12 million mobile devices with significant risks are out there. With blurring lines between secure and exposed data, there is a need for greater and faster security infrastructure.

What is App Testing?

Mobile technology has grown significantly and seen a massive increase in user base over the past few years. Sometimes deploying new features to attract users may help in standing out of the mobile application, but this process sometimes leaves security flaws. These loopholes attract hackers toward them and increased attack surfaces lead to massive data breaches and privacy compromise.

Application security testing focuses on software security for mobile applications on various platforms such as iOS and Android. It includes testing content security issues on which the platform is designed to work, the frameworks being developed, and the expected user set (e.g., staff vs. end users).

More users than ever before rely on mobile apps for most of their digital activities over standard desktop apps. The mobility that mobile application provides is an edge instead of sticking to desktops. Security testing includes those applications that run on both mobile phones and tablets.

How Does App Security Work?

Application security testing involves testing an application in ways that the attacker could attempt to attack it. An effective security test begins with the understanding of an application’s business purpose and the types of data it holds. Further, a combination of statistical and dynamic analysis results in a complete functional evaluation. to determine the risk that could have been avoided if the strategies were successfully used together.

It begins with defining the goal of the security audit and doing priority checks for the permissions that an application seeks in the device. Then checking for all in-app configurations, identifying the mechanism of both authentication and authorization, proper handling of sessions and cookies. Ensuring that a secure data storage mechanism is implemented. Thread analysis and modeling is the next stage. Reviewing the application’s architecture, resources, third-party interactions, and killing thread agents that can cause any further possible damage is taken care of.

We all needed to check the scope of these vulnerabilities. Scope means penetration testing of these vulnerabilities, exploiting them with the attacker’s perspective and it includes every possible exploitation that can cause any damage or harm to the user’s protection. This can be considered as a pre-production test to ensure that the controls and configurations in the application work as expected while avoiding errors. The testing proceeds in consideration of both coding and configuration issues in a production-like environment to ensure that problems are detected before they become live.
