Let’s say a mobile app pen test costs $5,000 in house or $15,000 to $25,000 to outsource. Did you know that an automated mobile app security testing tool costs $10,000 per app per year and can be used for unlimited testing of each and every build? For at least 30% less than the cost of a single penetration test, organizations can employ an automated testing platform that lets them test every build of a mobile app, every day of the year.
We frequently hear the same myths about mobile application security testing ranging from the notion that mobile apps are safe because Apple and Google test them to the notion that testing mobile apps is the same as testing web apps. These beliefs put organizations at risk of using and publishing mobile apps that are inherently insecure.
Discover what the top three misperceptions are and how to counter them.
A mobile app security testing tool must meet the needs of your DevOps team and help them quickly find and fix vulnerabilities. Look for solutions that integrate with the Devs toolchain via plug-ins or APIs and interoperates with other tools to aid the mission of developing secure mobile apps faster.
Mature mobile app development shops need security testing tools that provide a high degree of coverage, accuracy, remediation advice and timely updates. Automated security testing can help reduce friction in the dev pipeline and better enable DevSecOps by keeping security analysts and developers on the same page.
