Mobile App Penetration Testing (FAQs)
Mobile app penetration testing services are intended to detect and exploit security flaws in infrastructure, systems, and applications. After vulnerabilities are identified and categorised by risk factor, Gridware will provide expert recommendations to improve the security of your application. To ensure all changes were made correctly, Gridware will perform re-verification testing to confirm complete security.
Gridware aims to help you identify and address vulnerabilities in your mobile applications, both iOS and Android, that may lead to assets and data being compromised. Our approach to mobile app testing is to take a combined approach that utilises both manual inspection as well as automated scanning to ensure maximum coverage.
Common security risks for mobile applications are as follows:
- Poor authorisation and authentication
- insecure data storage
- weak server-side controls
- Broken cryptography
- Improper session handling
- API vulnerabilities
- Insufficient transport layer protection
- Client-side injection
- Security decisions made by untrusted inputs
In our experience, most companies looking to undertake mobile app penetration testing can require between 3-5 days of testing to complete. There are other factors to consider that affect the price, including any regulatory or legal requirements affecting your industry.
Generally, mobile app penetration testing is completed within 3-5 days.
Mobile application penetration testing should be performed by an external provider to guarantee that there is no bias in the assessment. Gridware’s penetration test is done separately from the company by CREST-accredited experts who are up to date on vulnerabilities and are familiar with both international and industry standards.
