Mobile Application
Penetration Testing

Mobile applications can put internal systems, processes, and data at risk. NetSPI’s mobile app penetration testing service identifies cybersecurity vulnerabilities and helps ensure mobile application security.

Improve Mobile Application Security

NetSPI’s mobile application penetration testing reduces organizational risk and improves application security

The pressure to quickly get a mobile application to market can lead to weak security and a lack of penetration testing. NetSPI identifies vulnerabilities in your mobile application infrastructure that make your organization susceptible to an external or internal security threat.

During our mobile app pentests, NetSPI evaluates client-side and backend server functionality for security vulnerabilities, and provides actionable guidance for remediation and improving application security risk posture.

What Does NetSPI Test For?

  • Insecure data storage
  • Client-side injection vulnerabilities
  • Data flow issues
  • Weak server-side controls
  • Poor authentication and authorization
  • Side channel data leakage
  • Insufficient transport layer protection
  • Improper session handling
  • Cryptography
  • Sensitive information disclosure

Mobile Application Penetration Testing Service

NetSPI tests your mobile application on Android and/or iOS for vulnerabilities. We manually pentest for security controls in four essential areas: file system, memory, network communications, and graphical user interface (GUI). We test for the OWASP Top 10 and much more.

Anonymous Testing

  • Non-credentialed user
  • Application client binary
  • Application server & web components
  • Mobile device, network & server layers
  • Automated scanners
  • Manual verification

Authenticated Testing

  • Credentialed users by type
  • Automated & manual processes
  • Elevate privileges
  • Gain access to restricted functionality
  • Manual verification


What is the OWASP Mobile Top 10?

In addition to identifying application logic weaknesses, NetSPI’s mobile application pentesting service targets OWASP Mobile Top 10 vulnerabilities. 

The OWASP Mobile Top 10 is a list of the most critical security risks to mobile applications, identified by an industry consensus. Adopting the OWASP Mobile Top 10 in your mobile app development and security assessment processes is a strong step in improving mobile application security for your business, your partners, and your customers.
