Mobile Application
Penetration Testing

Security Simplified consultants have the skills and experience to perform mobile application penetration testing on a wide range of mobile applications built on all modern platforms. The penetration test emulates an attack specifically targeting a target mobile application (iOS and/or Android) and aims to enumerate all vulnerabilities.

Security Simplified consultants emulates an attack targeted to a mobile application (iOS and/or Android) and enumerate all vulnerabilities, ranging from binary compile issues and improper sensitive data storage to more traditional application-based issues such as enumeration or injection. The API endpoints that a target application may interact with are covered in the assessment.

Our methodology is derived from the below standards:

  • Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Testing Guide
  • OWASP Mobile Security Testing Guide (MSTG)
  • The Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES)
