What is Mobile Application Testing?

Rootshell Security’s Mobile Application Testing services help keep your mobile apps secure, for both Android and iOS.

Our highly experienced testing team carry out a range of cutting-edge, rigorous, and insightful services to identify vulnerabilities before they can be exploited.

As well as mobile application security testing, we offer web application testing, API application testing, and desktop application testing.

Why is Mobile Application Security Testing important?

By nature, mobile apps are vulnerable to cyber attacks. Apps tend to store large volumes of personal and sensitive data, making them popular targets for threat actors. It’s essential that effective security testing is carried out on a regular basis to protect users and avoid the devastating consequences of a breach.

OWASP Mobile Top Ten

We seek to identify the vulnerabilities defined within the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Mobile Top Ten. By following this framework, we ensure your test is carried out to the highest standards and that the most critical threats to mobile apps are identified.

Clear Remediation Advice

Following your mobile application testing assessment, our helpful consultants will provide you with a clear overview of any issues identified, the potential impact of each issue, the ease of exploitation, and actionable remediation advice.

Integrated Testing

As part of our multi-layered approach to testing, we perform both dynamic (while the app is running) and static (examining the code without launching the app) analyses of your mobile apps. This ensures we deliver an in-depth assessment that provides that greatest level of protection.

Manual Approach

Our highly experienced testers harness cutting-edge manual techniques to perform thorough assessments of your mobile apps. This allows us to review session and business logic using multiple user accounts and roles.

Frequently Asked Questions about Web App Security Testing

We harness cutting-edge manual techniques to perform thorough assessments of your mobile apps. This allows us to review session and business logic using multiple user accounts and roles.

OWASP stands for the Open Web Application Security Project, which is an organisation that sets out best practice guidelines for application security testing. We deliver mobile app security testing in line with mobile OWASP frameworks.

The OWASP Mobile Top Ten includes, but is not limited to:

  • Configuration management
  • Authentication testing
  • Authorisation testing
  • Data input validation issues
  • Business validation and business logic testing

Whilst some aspects of mobile application security testing can be automated, we don’t believe a complete OWASP test can be delivered by relying on automated methods alone. Read more about our approach to OWASP application testing.

A mobile app vulnerability scan is an automated method for identifying mobile app vulnerabilities using scanning tools. A penetration test is a manual approach to mobile application security testing, which exploits vulnerabilities through an unauthenticated and uninformed attacker perspective to report how a mobile app could be breached. A scan can only identify that an issue exists; one of the main benefits of a pen test is the ability for a skilled consultant to evaluate the severity of an issue, not just its presence. Read more about vulnerability and penetration testing services.

Both mobile app assessments and penetration tests are manual methods of mobile application security testing, but their approaches are different. In a mobile app assessment, a tester will be logged into the app, which allows the tester to investigate session and business logic using different user accounts and roles; it is a white-box test. A penetration test is a black-box test. The tester will take on an unauthenticated and uninformed perspective, just like a real-world attacker would, to determine how vulnerabilities could be exploited.

We provide mobile application testing for both Android and iOS mobile apps.
