Mobile Application Testing

Mobile apps (both iOS and Android) are often the most critical asset in modern businesses, yet one of the most frequently overlooked when it comes to security and pentesting. An insecurely developed mobile app can be a treasure trove of information for an attacker, who will look to exploit weak apps to gain access to sensitive data and customer accounts.

The basics

What is Mobile Application Penetration Testing?

Mobile app pentesting is a simulated attack that is designed to uncover any security weaknesses in your business’ iOS or Android apps. Pentesting will help you to identify vulnerabilities which could be exploited by an attacker to:

  • Gain access to user accounts
  • Compromise application data
  • Compromise the back-end database used by the application, and all its data
  • Subvert the normal functionality of an application
  • Launch attacks against other application users

These attacks, if successful, could have a significant impact on the mobile app, your customers and your brand. Our testing is designed to ensure this doesn’t happen to you.

Our CREST-approved mobile app pentests consist of a security assessment of both the application on the mobile device itself, and an assessment of the back-end web services (API) that supports the application.

Testing Benefits

What are the benefits of Mobile Application Pentesting?

If you had a vulnerability on your application right now which could be exploited, would you want to know? Simply put, mobile app pentesting enables you to find and fix vulnerabilities in your mobile app before attackers do.

By utilising iOS and Android mobile app penetration testing in your cyber-security programme, you can save valuable time, money and potential reputational damage.

Our CREST accredited web application testers use a combination of manual and automated techniques to uncover the vulnerabilities automated solutions simply can’t find.

Manual Not Automated

What will we find in a Mobile Application Penetration Test?

Some of the common vulnerabilities found in mobile application testing are:

  • Hardcoded api keys
  • Unsanitized / non-validated request data
  • Business logic flaws
  • Authorization bypasses
  • Sensitive data on the mobile device
  • Insecure Data Storage
  • Insecure Authorization
  • Improper Platform Usage
  • SQL injection
  • Cross-Site Scripting

CREST Registered - CREST Certified

Are you CREST Certified?

OnSecurity is a CREST (Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers) approved vendor. This means that all our test methodologies, processes, policies and procedures have been externally vetted by CREST to ensure we are operating to the highest standards possible in the pentesting industry.

On top of this the majority of our testers are CREST certified, meaning they have been through a CREST assault course (or CREST-recognised equivalent) to ensure they have the requisite skills needed to find and exploit vulnerabilities in a safe and controlled manner.

This external validation means you can be confident your pentests are being carried out to the highest standard, by vetted and tested consultants, who use a best-in-class manual-first approach to testing.
