Improve mobile app security with a security assessment by NetSPI

The pressure to quickly get a mobile app 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 threat.

During our mobile application security assessment, NetSPI will evaluate client-side and backend server functionality for vulnerabilities, and provide actionable guidance for remediation and for improving application risk posture.

Our processes and platform allow our penetration testers to focus on identifying 20% more vulnerabilities at a higher criticality than other application penetration testing services.

Our Mobile Application Security Assessment Service

NetSPI will test your mobile application on Android and/or iOS for vulnerabilities. We manually test for security controls in four essential areas: file system, memory, network communications, and 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, your mobile application security testing service will target 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.
