Mobile Application Testing

With every cell phone, there are millions of apps that could be infested with vulnerabilities. 

Test Your 
Mobile Application Against:
Insecure Data Storage
Poor Authentication/Authorization
Data Flow Issues
Improper Session Handling
Server Side Controls
Data Leakage
Deficient Transport Layer Protection

And more…

Mobile Application Security

Mobile technology and smart devices are highly used, and misunderstood.

Take control over your phone.

Identify Mobile App Vulnerabilities and Exposures

Technology is ever changing. Therefore, malicious hackers are exploiting your vulnerabilities. We use our phones for everything, and our mobile applications are a target.

Here at MainNerve, our penetration testing truly simulates the attacks of a real-world malicious hacker–which includes specialized vulnerability assessments, automated scans, and manual techniques.

These cyber services all work together to reduce false positives and identify application security gaps.

A Hybrid Approach

All of our Mobile App security tests go beyond standards – including NIST – and your test will come with a detailed final report.

Your detailed final report will include an executive summary, a listing of findings, risk ratings and remediation recommendations.  A letter of accreditation can be provided upon your request.

Throughout the mobile application penetration testing process, automated, as well as comprehensive manual testing, will be used to identify all application and business-logic related vulnerabilities.

Our Process

MainNerve’s mobile application security testing is designed to identify vulnerabilities in applications on mobile phones that could be exploited. MainNerve utilizes a highly-manual approach to discovering contextual security vulnerabilities that are specific to mobile applications. Help your mobile apps excel in the market with a comprehensive, risk-based approach to manually identify critical mobile application vulnerabilities… and realize a resilient mobile app that can withstand sophisticated cyber threats.

The understanding phase of the mobile application testing process is vital to the success of the test. It is very important that the security testing team fully understands each of the features/functions in the application. The team does this by browsing through the application, going through the user manuals or if required a walkthrough of the application along with the application owner or developers. We work with you to ensure we are fully aware of its aims, functions, etc.

MainNerve mobile application penetration tests focus on the goals of your adversary, namely what they want to achieve. MainNerver creates a threat profile of all the threats we have identified and becomes the starting point for our subsequent tests. This begins by mapping each threat in the threat profile to specific pages on your site.  The test plan then identifies all the attacks MainNerve needs to carry out to assess each specific threat. For example, the MainNerve tester might navigate to the application directory and study the preferences file, xml file, plist file, or SQLite databases.

Once the test plan and test cases are prepared and approved by a senior member of the team, the mobile app testing phase begins. This will be a combination of manual and automated checks and will adhere to the test plan. During the course of testing the tester may identify additional tests or attacks to perform, in which case the test plan will be updated and subsequent tests may be performed.  The team takes up the threats one by one and starts performing the tests. If a test case is successful it is marked as unsafe in the test plan.

At MainNerve, we consider the final phase of the mobile application penetration testing process, reporting, to be the most crucial and instrumental step. We take great care to demonstrate the value of the test and our findings. During this phase, a final report is prepared detailing all the vulnerabilities found in the mobile application, including their respective solutions. The report is sent to the client, securely, after it has been reviewed internally.

In 12 years of tests, you are the first company that found anything higher than a low risk. Phone and cameras were never discovered in the test, let alone accessed. Great to always get a different perspective from a test.
