Extends the World’s First Pen Testing Toolkit with Productivity, Performance and Collaboration
Las Vegas, NV August 3, 2021 — NowSecure, the leading standards-based mobile app security and privacy software company, announced today a major update to its flagship mobile pen testing toolkit NowSecure Workstation 7. Used by mobile pen testing teams around the world, NowSecure Workstation boosts pen tester productivity through deep dive, interactive and automated security testing of iOS and Android mobile apps, collapsing a two- to three-week mobile app pen test to just one day. NowSecure Workstation 7 enables security teams to confidently scale their mobile pen testing program with the ease of use security analysts seek and depth of coverage their risk profile demands.
According to the independent industry group (ISC)2 Cybersecurity Workforce Survey, while 97% of organizations report that pen testing is important to their organization, 56% say that cybersecurity staff shortages are putting their organizations at risk. And only 8% of overall cybersecurity resources are applied to pen testing. Cybersecurity leaders are turning to a combination of training their own internal pen testing teams and leveraging tools and automation to drive pen tester productivity. NowSecure Workstation, in combination with NowSecure Training courseware, provides the ideal rapid enablement solution to help close mobile pen testing resource gaps.
“Mobile app security risk continues to grow, and a shortage of skilled mobile app pen testing resources hampers organizations’ ability to staff and complete manual mobile app security testing,” said NowSecure CEO Alan Snyder. “NowSecure Workstation 7 delivers a next- generation, modern experience enabling testers of any skill level to rapidly and deeply pen test their mobile apps to empower organizations to deliver secure mobile apps faster.”
Traditional manual mobile app pen tests require skilled security analysts using a myriad of tools and weeks to complete the manual testing and compile results into a report. NowSecure Workstation provides an all-in-one pen testing kit that dramatically boosts pen tester productivity, collapsing mobile app pen tests from weeks into a single day. NowSecure Workstation includes a laptop, two mobile devices and software for everything a mobile app pen tester needs right out of the box. Offering a battery of hundreds of mobile security, privacy and compliance tests, an intuitive wizard-driven interface and extensibility to work with advanced tooling and configuration, NowSecure Workstation was the world’s first all-in-one mobile app pen tester toolkit and continues to lead the industry as the world’s top mobile pen tester toolkit.
