Mobile Application Penetration Testing
Among all the great things accomplished in the mobility space, there is a global community of hackers who are closely watching the mobile space. To break into mobile devices and apps, they use newer and bolder methods, so app designers need to be careful.
Security testing for mobile apps is the method of checking application features and vulnerability code. It is a combination of static, dynamic and behavioural analysis of apps.
Local Data Storage
The protection of sensitive data, such as user credentials and private information, is crucial to mobile security. If an app uses operating system APIs such as local storage or inter-process communication (IPC) improperly, the app might expose sensitive data to other apps running on the same device.
Communication with Trusted Endpoints
Mobile devices regularly connect to a variety of networks, including public WiFi networks shared with other (potentially malicious) clients. This creates opportunities for a wide variety of network-based attacks ranging from simple to complicated and old to new.
Anti-Tampering and Reverse Engineering
We believe there’s a benefit to client-side protections if they are employed with a clear purpose and realistic expectations in mind and aren’t used to replace security controls.
Code Obfuscation should be properly in-place to avoid rebuild-repack.
Application Level Attacks
Apart from above threats, it’s important to perform all application layer attacks on the Mobile apps because there might be all the communication is happening on http or some APIs.
What our customers are saying
We used detox services after having a regular pentesting by our vendor, we were surprised to see the number of issues they reported even after we fixed all the issues reported by our vendor. Detox will definitely be my only choice for next year pentesting also.
