Mobile App Penetration Testing

Mobile applications have become an integral part of our lives, from banking and shopping to social networking and entertainment. The last 20 years has seen mobile phones develop from two-way communicators to minicomputers.

You can personalise your devices with applications that enhance your experience. With the increased popularity of apps, they have also become a prime target for cyber-criminals. To keep your app safe, it is essential to carry out mobile app penetration testing.

What is mobile app penetration testing?

Mobile application penetration testing is the process of evaluating a mobile app’s security by simulating an attack from a malicious actor. The aim of this testing is to identify any vulnerabilities that could be exploited by an attacker, and provide recommendations on how to fix them.

Depending on the coding language used for the app development, the app penetration testing methods are similar to website penetration testing.

Why is mobile application penetration testing crucial to mobile app safety?

Mobile apps store sensitive information such as personal details, bank account information, and credit card details, making them a prime target for cybercriminals.

A single vulnerability in the app can compromise the user’s data and lead to identity theft, financial loss, and damage to the app’s reputation. Mobile app penetration testing helps in identifying these vulnerabilities and providing recommendations to fix them, making the app more secure. 

Certified by CREST and Offensive Security, our qualified testers employ real-world hacking techniques to uncover profound insights.

What are the Benefits of Mobile App Pen Testing?

Identify Security Vulnerabilities: 
Pen testing helps in identifying any security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by cybercriminals. 

Risk Assessment: 
Pen testing provides a risk assessment of the mobile app, highlighting areas that require further attention and fixing. 

Protecting Users: 
By identifying and fixing vulnerabilities, mobile app pen testing helps protect the app’s users from data breaches and other cyber-attacks.

It was a pleasure working with the Equilibrium team - they were very understanding of our needs, worked very well with my team, and most importantly were very patient and understanding of the limitations of my team to provide the information required when needed due to other priorities.
