Mobile Application Penetration Testing

In the present day, Mobile applications is a critical component to any business and is at the core for customers interacting with the brand, and associated services and products. Consumers spend most of their digital time on their smartphones, while trusting applications with their sensitive and personal information.

Mobile application security and privacy is a concern for enterprises - big or small. No-one wants their customer’s valuable information ending up in the wrong hands because of a faulty line of code or a vulnerable third party component. The consequences could be drastic and tragic - with brand reputation being damaged and social media being filled with negative messages by the competitors and consumers themselves.

We believe that organizations who value their users, have a core responsibility of being at the fore-front of security. This is where Attify comes in to ensure that while you take care of the business, we can take care of the security issues. We help secure your mobile applications by identifying all possible security issues before the attackers do, thus making your applications bullet-proof.

Mobile application security, being one of our core expertise, we have written books on the topic and have delivered training courses educating developers and security professionals all over the world on how to better build and break mobile applications.

Attify has done numerous penetration testing engagements on mobile applications from various verticals such as:

  • Payments and financial
  • Healthcare
  • Retail
  • Gaming
  • Social networking
  • BYOD and MDM solutions
  • Enterprise internal apps and more.

Attify offers a complete security assessment and penetration testing through our unique offering of Attacker Simulated Exploitation for Mobile applications. This involves our security researchers compromising your mobile application’s security with an attacker’s mindset, thus revealing any possible security holes that might would have lead to a security breach of your mobile app.

Attify can work with you at all the different stages of your product lifecycle:

  • Planning and pre-development phase
  • During development
  • Post-development and before launch
  • Already launched

Attify also offers a continuos manual testing subscription for our selected clientele, who require each build of their application throughly tested for any possible security issue.
