What is mobile application testing?
Mobile application testing is the process of hacking into a mobile application to identify areas of exploitation. Equipped with a dedicated testing lab, we see if it’s possible to reverse engineer the app, steal intellectual property and user data.
Applications aren’t usually as robust in their methods of protection, yet they often harvest the most user data; it’s imperative that mobile applications are tested against hacking because losing sensitive user data is a fast track way to land large fines for any business.
We test the internal components of the application by getting to grips with its inner workings, understanding how data is stored, handled and outputted. However, it’s also critical to test how the application itself works within a network and how it serves the end users. Understanding the purpose and use cases of an application enables us to provide a comprehensive view of potential exploits.
Why do I need it?
Mutual assurance is important to the people involved in your business, making sure that you meet certain security standards is critical in protecting your users and your business. Giving your stakeholders and third party services peace of mind that your own and your clients’ data are secure will give them the assurance that their investments remain safe.
We have developed our own tried and tested application methodology which has demonstrated success with use cases including private medical information which has high importance on security. Access to all the mobile devices, platforms and tools enables us to provide full insight into any potential risk.
