Why Mobile Security Testing is required?
Smart phones are fast replacing traditional computers.
As the user base is rapidly shifting to mobiles, hackers are also shifting their attention to mobiles. Due to this trend, conducting security tests on these applications has become a necessity.
Based on the risk profile of the application, you may choose either one of the following two services or both :
Mobile Application Penetration Test: This test aims at identifying the application vulnerabilities that can be exploited using installed applications on mobile phones.
The assessments attempt to detect vulnerabilities and are performed by posing as a registered user as well as an anonymous user. This type of test involves building custom threat profiles in order to discover contextual security vulnerabilities that are specific to the application. The tests are conducted for the realization of the identified threats.
Mobile Application Source Code Review: This test aims at identifying vulnerabilities at the source-code level. The assessments attempt to detect vulnerabilities that are present due to coding or design flaws and other exploitable vulnerabilities posing as a registered user. This type of test also involves building custom threat profiles.
