Mobile App Security to Empower you to Offer Secure Mobile Applications

Smartphones have not only changed how we conduct business and interact with people, but also how we need to protect our business and users. Mobile apps are a necessary and convenient way to interact with others, but they introduce an additional means through which attackers can gain access to your business’s sensitive data and network infrastructure.

Sword & Shield Enterprise Security partners with you through our Mobile Application Security Assessment service to empower you to offer secure mobile applications.

Following the OWASP Application Security Verification Standard, our certified GIAC Mobile Device Security Analysts apply their depth and breadth of information security and compliance knowledge to provide a detailed security analysis of your Android, iOS, or Windows phone- or tablet-based app.

Thorough Mobile Application Security Analysis

Sword & Shield’s Mobile Application Security Assessment employs a combination of commercial tools, public domain utilities, proprietary tools, and manual testing techniques based on our extensive experience to provide the most thorough assessment possible. In addition, our mobile app security assessment includes a penetration test to determine if the protective controls of the target can be bypassed.

Mobile App Security Testing Process

Our mobile app security testing covers the complete mobile app environment, from the app running on the device to the back-end APIs and servers that facilitate the app and store data related to the app.

We use the following mobile app security testing process

  • Learn how the app works and get to know its functionality
  • Conduct static analysis: Check permissions, see how insecure data is stored, inspect the code, check for the presence of sensitive data
  • Conduct dynamic analysis: Assess man-in-the-middle, backend infrastructure, and privilege escalation vulnerabilities; and assess insecure direct object references
  • Test application programming interfaces (APIs) to ensure they are secure

Actionable Results

Sword & Shield feels our Mobile Application Security Assessment report is as valuable as the exercise itself. We use a proprietary platform to comprehensively report identified vulnerabilities, documenting our process and findings to produce a thorough and helpful roadmap for remediation.
