Tap the world's most advanced mobile pen testing program to quickly and thoroughly test the security of your mobile application using NowSecure Mobile App Pen Testing Services, leveraging the expertise gained over more than a decade of conducting thousands of assessments, and get the most comprehensive results in the least amount of time.

Meet Compliance Requirements

Many industry standards and regulations require a penetration test in order to be compliant. NowSecure Pen Testing enables organizations to meet these standards requirements in a reliable, flexible and timely manner.

Confidence to Deliver More Secure Apps

NowSecure Pen Testing Services always start with an analysis of risk profiles in order to identify the level of security testing required for each mobile application. By customizing the approach to testing based on the risk profile of an application, NowSecure delivers accurate and relevant results that empower you to remediate what’s most important so you can release faster with confidence.

Collaborate to Repair and Verify Fixes

One of the challenges that organizations often face is understanding the issues found and remediating them quickly. NowSecure experts consult with dev and security teams to speed resolution and then retest to verify that critical vulnerabilities found in the pen test were addressed.

Test for Complex Requirements

NowSecure experts go beyond surface level testing and for deep coverage, conducting manual analysis of data at rest, network communication, authentication and authorization, backend APIs and binary code quality, such as reverse engineering resiliency, cryptographic implementations and outdated/vulnerable third-party libraries. NowSecure can also handle complex needs such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and USB connectivity to external devices, non-standard platforms or other functionality that requires advanced scoping.

World Class Mobile Penetration Testing

Thoroughly Assess Applications with Full Scope Pen Testing Services

With more than 12 years of mobile app penetration testing experience, NowSecure customizes the scope with an in-depth consultation about the mobile app threat profile, sensitive data, intellectual property and how your app might be exploited. NowSecure experts deeply exercise mobile apps for a comprehensive manual analysis of data at rest, network communication, authentication and authorization, backend APIs and binary code quality, such as reverse engineering resiliency, cryptographic implementations and outdated/vulnerable third-party libraries. Because no one tool suffices, NowSecure expert analysts employ a mix of our own NowSecure custom, commercial, and open-source tools including Frida and Radare, two popular open-source tools that were developed by our own researchers. NowSecure can also handle complex needs such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and USB connectivity to external devices, non-standard platforms or other functionality that requires advanced scoping.

Standards-Based Assessment and Reporting

Our pen tests leverage security industry standards such as the OWASP Mobile Top 10, Mobile Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS) and the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS). NowSecure can provide certification for NIAP and ioXt. In addition to providing an executive summary to share with stakeholders, a NowSecure pen test report outlines detailed attack scenarios prioritized by risk and severity. It also includes important contextual information such as the likelihood of occurrence and potential business impact. And best of all, the report instructs developers on the steps to take to fix their mobile app.

Collaborative Remediation and Re-Testing

Once the pen test is complete, the real collaboration begins. Rather than simply sending out a report, NowSecure experts serve as trusted advisors for the mobile app security and mobile app development teams. We meet with both teams to review the results and consult with developers to walk them through the steps of fixing security bugs. Along with offering coaching and fielding questions during the issue resolution process, NowSecure conducts a retest of the updated mobile app to ensure the vulnerabilities have been successfully remediated.

Third-Party Attestation

Once our team verifies that a mobile app meets security requirements, we offer a public NowSecure Certified badge and online listing for those that meet the high standards of our mobile app security assessments. This independent third-party certification assures users that app makers properly implement security measures and handle sensitive data.

Who tests my application?
Who tests my application?

NowSecure has a collection of mobile app security experts that conduct every penetration test we do. They have completed more than 10,000 mobile app assessments and pen tests between them, and are backed some of the most well known mobile app security researchers in the industry including makers of Frida and Radare.

What do NowSecure Penetration Tests cover?
What do NowSecure Penetration Tests cover?

NowSecure Penetration tests cover a massive range of vulnerabilities. We assess applications in five key areas. For data at rest, we install the app on real mobile devices and perform forensic analysis for application and data storage vulnerabilities. Data in transit tests require a compromised network to attempt to intercept traffic. API security is critical in fully assessing an application, so NowSecure experts conduct reconnaissance and attempt to exploit backend services the app interacts with. Our assessments also start with the standard  static binary analysis which evaluates the fully compiled binary to discover flaws in logic that could result in a vulnerability. And finally, we reverse engineer the mobile app to look for sensitive data and other weaknesses as we attempt to manipulate it as attackers will.

What is the expected turn-around time for a NowSecure Penetration Test?
What is the expected turn-around time for a NowSecure Penetration Test?

The expected turn-around time once a full scope NowSecure Penetration Test is scheduled is 2 weeks, but tests can be expedited in certain cases, for instance, if you are facing a compliance requirement and need a penetration test done quickly. NowSecure also offers a focused scope penetration test that can be completed in a short 2 days once the pen test has been scheduled.
