The Experts in Mobile App Pen Testing

Penetration Tests are essential for initial mobile app releases, major updates, handling of sensitive data, and industry compliance. NowSecure Pen Test engagements embrace a consultative approach to threat model the mobile app, identify security issues, and provide actionable outputs with remediation consultation and retesting for verification.

Confidence to Deliver More Secure Apps

NowSecure Pen Testing Services always start with an analysis of risk profile and threat model to granularly identify the level of security testing required for each mobile application. By customizing the approach to testing based on the risk profile and threat model of a mobile app, NowSecure delivers accurate, relevant, and actionable results. These empower the organization to remediate the most important issues and release blockers to release the mobile app on time with higher confidence that users, data and IP are protected.

Test for Complex Requirements

NowSecure expert analysts go beyond surface level testing to achieve deep coverage leveraging OWASP MASVS and MSTG, NowSecure tools, frida, radare, and industry best practice learned testing more than 11,000 mobile apps. They accomplish this feat by conducting a manual analysis of data at rest, network communication, authentication and authorization, backend APIs and binary code quality. This approach includes reverse engineering resiliency, cryptographic implementations and flagging outdated or vulnerable third-party libraries including open-source elements. NowSecure handles complex app requirements such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and USB connectivity to external devices, non-standard platforms, IoT devices or other functionality requiring advanced scoping.

Collaborate to Repair and Verify Fixes

A primary challenge to enterprises is understanding the mobile app issues discovered and rapidly remediating them. NowSecure experts consult with dev and security teams to speed resolution. Upon initial completion, experts retest to verify that any critical vulnerabilities isolated in the pen test were thoroughly fixed.

Meet Compliance Mandates

Many industry standards and regulations require an analytics-rich penetration test far beyond conventional web or mobile app security testing in order to document compliance. NowSecure Pen Testing services enable customer organizations to meet or exceed these standards in a dependable, flexible, and timely manner. Gain official certifications from NowSecure as an ADA Authorized Lab and IoXt Authorized Lab, or OWASP MASVS verification.

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 customer scope with an in-depth consultation about the mobile app threat profile, sensitive data, intellectual property, and possible mobile app exploitation details. NowSecure Full Scope Pen Testing pinpoints mobile app testing to move far beyond web app testing with purpose built tools and tactics. This level of analysis also gives the analyst’s expertise of forensic, network, and mobile analysis and reverse engineering to test your application and provide comprehensive analysis of security vulnerabilities identified in that feature set. Analysts then test to industry-recognized standards for mobile security and provide expert consulting on how to remediate according to best practices.

Standards-based Assessment and Reporting

NowSecure expert pen tests leverage security industry standards such as the OWASP Mobile Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS) and the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS). NowSecure offers certification for NIAP, ioXt, and MASA ADA. 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. The report details important contextual information such as the likelihood of occurrence and potential organization impact. And best of all, the report instructs developers on remediation steps to take to fix their mobile app.

Collaborative Remediation and Re-Testing

Once NowSecure experts complete the initial pen test, the real collaboration begins. Rather than simply sending out a report, NowSecure analysts step up as expert 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, where applicable for full scope and compliance tests NowSecure conducts a no cost…

Third-party Attestation

Once the expert analyst team verifies a mobile app meets security or compliance requirements, we offer a public NowSecure Certified badge and online listing customer products actively meeting the high standards of our mobile app security assessments. This independent third-party certification assures users that app makers properly implement security measures and manage sensitive PII data.
