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.

Both static and dynamic security testing are essential components of the mobile app software development life cycle (SDLC). While Static Application Security Testing (SAST) tests snippets of source code, Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) fully exercises the compiled mobile binary as a user would. Read more about the misconceptions of DAST for mobile.
Check out this infographic to see how mobile has transformed organizations and why building security and privacy into the development process through mobile app sec testing simply makes good business sense.
Managers can find guidance for mobile app security verification and testing requirements from the OWASP Mobile Security Verification Standard (MASVS). We recommend using MASVS as a starting point for developing a plan of attack and standardizing testing using the Mobile AppSec Model. Learn more about it here.

These beliefs put organizations at risk of using and publishing mobile apps that are inherently insecure.
