Why test your mobile applications?
The use of mobile applications continues to grow and for many organisations, they are now a critical technology on which their business operates.
Mobile applications often handle sensitive information and can provide access to back-end systems. This makes them an ideal target for threat actors and vulnerabilities within an application can provide access to sensitive data, as well as your wider network.
The security of mobile applications is therefore vital and needs to be considered at all stages, from development through to deployment.
Common mobile applications and development languages we test include:

Approaching mobile app testing
Our mobile application tests are delivered remotely, simulating a real-world attack. Engagements can follow a number of different approaches, guided by your requirements and priorities:
Not sure what approach is best for you?
Our team will be happy to discuss your individual requirements and provide a no obligation proposal based on your needs.
Our mobile application test process
Every mobile application penetration test goes through a rigorous process to ensure you get the best possible results. Below we outline the key stages our testing goes through:
Your dedicated account manager (AM) will work closely with you to understand your business, the application under review & the desired outcomes. The AM will then work with the assigned Pentest consultants & your stakeholders to ensure testing meets your exact needs.
A bespoke proposal of work will be drawn up based on your requirements, our experience and our consultant’s expertise. This proposal will outline our recommended test approach, the prerequisites needed & the time required to investigate the target.
Testing will commence on the agreed date and our consultants will communicate with you throughout the test, to your set requirements.
All testing is conducted manually and our consultants will look to identify as many issues as possible in the time allotted, verifying whether these could be exploited.
A comprehensive, quality assured report of our findings will be delivered following the test. Our reports can be tailored to your needs, providing both a technical and managerial overview of findings, as well as our detailed remediation advice. Where required, we can report to the Mobile OWASP Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS).
5. Post-test support
Our job doesn’t finish on the delivery of a report, your test consultant will be available after the test to explain any aspect of the report, as well as provide remediation support to internal teams and/or external suppliers.
6. Evidence of testing
Many of our clients need to supply evidence of testing for security assurance purposes. We can supply additional documentation which will provide these assurances to your internal and/or external stakeholders.
