Gain reassurance from knowing your mobile app data is secure

Our mobile devices have become indispensable in our working and personal lives. However, the large volume of data they hold means that a lot of risk comes with this convenience, making our devices common targets for cybercriminals. CyberOne’s mobile application security testing is a secure way of ensuring you are safeguarding your stakeholders and your reputation, giving assurance that the expected security protections exist and are effective.

During our mobile app security testing our experts attempt to exploit a mobile application in the same way a hacker would. We conduct a range of mobile application security assessments across Android and Apple operating systems. We identify vulnerabilities through the provision of a detailed security report to lessen the risk of a data breach and the massive impact this could have on your reputation and bottom line.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is mobile application security testing?

Mobile application security testing is the process of evaluating the security of mobile applications to identify vulnerabilities or weaknesses that could be exploited by attackers. It helps ensure that mobile apps are secure and protect user data.

Why is mobile application security testing important?

Mobile application security testing is important because mobile apps often handle sensitive user information, such as personal and financial data. Testing helps to identify and mitigate security risks, safeguarding user data and protecting against potential cyber threats.

What are the common types of mobile app security testing?

The common types of mobile application security testing include:

  • Static Application Security Testing (SAST): Scans the application’s source code and identifies security vulnerabilities.
  • Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST): Analyses the app in a running state to identify vulnerabilities by simulating real-world attacks.
  • Manual Code Review: Involves a thorough manual examination of the app’s codebase to identify security flaws and vulnerabilities.
  • Penetration Testing: Involves actively trying to exploit vulnerabilities in the app to assess its security controls and potential attack vectors.

How often should mobile application security testing be performed?

It is recommended to perform security testing regularly, ideally as part of the development lifecycle, and after any major changes or updates to the app.

What are the common security risks in mobile applications?

Some common security risks in mobile applications include insecure data storage, weak authentication and authorisation mechanisms, inadequate encryption, insecure communication channels, and vulnerabilities in third-party libraries & frameworks.

What are the benefits of mobile application security testing?

Some benefits of mobile application security testing include reduced risk of data breaches, protection of sensitive user information, compliance with security standards and regulations, enhanced user trust, improved brand reputation, and cost savings by identifying and addressing security issues early in the development process.
