Decoding Mobile Application Security

Securing Your App to Deliver More Value

According to research by Positive Technologies, 38% of iOS mobile apps and 43% of android apps had high-risk vulnerabilities, while 76% suffered from insecure data storage. As a business, you will have high hopes from your mobile apps from the brand building and sales perspective. There is no doubt, a mobile app helps you reach out to a wider audience, but it comes with its own set of problems.

The popularity of mobile apps means it is on the radar of hackers who want to exploit app vulnerabilities to access sensitive customer and business data. At SharkStriker, we are well aware of mobile app threats, commonly exploited app vulnerabilities, as well as, those weaknesses that fall below the radar.

Our service leverages automation and advanced human-driven penetration testing methodologies to analyze and evaluate vulnerabilities.
