The mobile application pen testing methodology is a test to analyze the security perimeters within a mobile environment to gain insights into the source code's vulnerabilities, bottlenecks, and attack vectors before it happens. Penetration testing helps increase cyber security across mobile apps.
More and more people are relying on mobile applications. Mobile applications offer convenience and enable us to be more productive, making a mobile device an essential part of our daily business operations. However, with convenience comes security risks and due to the large volume of data processed through mobile applications, they are a prime target for cyber-attacks. Mobile app pen testing is important for managing security across these application platforms. Because new vulnerabilities are found daily, businesses should be proactive to ensure their mobile app is safe from modern-day cyber-attacks and reduce the chance of malware, spyware, or any other security breach.
RedTeam Security's mobile application security testing combines the results from industry-leading scanning tools with manual testing to enumerate and validate vulnerabilities, configuration errors, and business logic flaws. In-depth manual mobile application testing enables us to find what scanners often miss. Mobile applications are particularly vulnerable to external attacks because they are inherently designed to be accessible to the Internet. While automated scanners check for known vulnerabilities, they cannot report real business risks. Our mobile application security testing helps you lower your risk of a data breach, improve productivity, protect your brand, and maximize the ROI from your mobile applications.
Whatever your level of business integration with mobile applications, RedTeam Security can help uncover and exploit vulnerabilities that could ultimately lead to a breach of sensitive data. Through RedTeam Security's mobile application penetration testing, we manually test Android and/or iOS operating systems to identify critical security issues that could lead to personal and financial data theft.
RedTeam Security's certified team of pen testers is experienced in various mobile application testing environments, including Android applications, iOS, Windows, and other common operating systems and mobile apps. We recognize that each organization's cybersecurity needs and purpose for mobile app pen testing can differ. We take the time to understand your application's purpose and user interactions, giving us a clearer route a would-be attacker would take. Our penetration testers carefully consider the business logic implemented by application developers to provide a more thoughtful, comprehensive, and valuable deliverable.
Our mobile app pen tests are consistently conducted using globally accepted and industry-standard frameworks. To ensure a sound and comprehensive penetration test, we leverage industry-standard frameworks as a foundation for carrying out penetration tests. The underlying mobile app security framework for this testing is based on the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).
OWASP is a globally accepted framework that enables effective penetration testing consistent with best practices while ensuring a holistic and comprehensive evaluation. The following phases are included as part of our comprehensive mobile web application penetration testing approach.

Every RedTeam Security mobile app pen test aims to reduce risk by identifying vulnerabilities within mobile application environments that insider threats or cybercriminals could exploit. Testing your application security will ultimately lead to improved application security.
Our findings are documented in easy-to-read reports intended to communicate our recommendations on prioritizing remediation efforts, with rankings by severity. Clients receive a clear and actionable report, complete with evidence to the project stakeholders. At RedTeam Security, we consider this phase the most important, and we take great care to ensure we've communicated the value of our service and findings thoroughly. The report will provide an analysis of the current state of the assessed mobile security controls.
We aim to help fix mobile application security vulnerabilities, not just find them. As a result, we offer our clients free remediation re-testing for up to six findings, within six months of project completion.
There are three main types of mobile penetration testing.
Penetration testers inspect many different application functionalities, but the main parameters are:
Some of the most popular mobile application security testing tools used worldwide include:
