Although we recommend periodic in-depth pen tests for high-risk mobile apps that run business-critical processes or access sensitive information, this practice doesn’t scale well for DevOps teams. Mobile app pen testing requires intense human labor that simply can’t keep pace with the volume, velocity and frequency of DevOps releases. Many organizations can benefit from incorporating automated mobile appsec testing in the mobile DevSecOps toolchain to speed the delivery of secure mobile apps.
IDC estimates that by the end of 2019, organizations worldwide will have spent more than $1 trillion on digital transformation initiatives. But organizations struggle to develop apps fast enough to satisfy business demand and security often falls by the wayside. Learn how mobile DevSecOps can support digital transformation by enabling companies to swiftly develop apps without compromising security.
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.
