Mobile Application Penetration Testing
Mobile applications are increasing in numbers every day. Today more mobile phones / tablets accesses web applications than PCs. More than 90% of government services in UAE can be transacted through mobile applications. Increase in the use of mobile applications means, application vulnerabilities and thus security incidents that may impact the client device or backend systems that support the mobile application.
Many mobile applications we have assessed recently across the region, indicate the need for continuous security assessment of mobile applications. Poorly hardening and securely configured mobile applications by the software developers, often outsourced by organizations, do not even follow the most basic of security guidelines.
Mobile Application vulnerabilities often lead to customer privacy violations and/or data loss. Considering this, it is important to perform a holistic security review as part of your mobile application deployment strategy.
