On a mission to save the world from unsafe mobile apps, NowSecure is excited to announce a new partnership with Cybrary to enable more people – anyone, anywhere – to upskill and deliver more secure mobile apps. The launch of Cybrary’s first mobile app security learning course marks a significant step towards closing the knowledge gap and building security into mobile apps by design. The best part? It’s free! Read on to get a synopsis of the course.
Recent enhancements to the Frida open-source dynamic instrumentation toolkit greatly ease the process of conducting jailed testing. You no longer have to manually package the Frida Gadget in your target app. As long as the app is debuggable, Frida does that for you.

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.
In early September, radare2 users and developers from around the globe gathered in Barcelona for r2con, an annual conference celebrating the r2 multi-platform, open-source, reverse engineering framework supported by NowSecure.
