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.

Mobile App Vulnerabilities

Mobile App Vulnerabilities

A Watchful Eye on All Vulnerabilities

Our team of penetration testers has complete understanding of all mobile app vulnerabilities and keeps developing its threat perception from the mobile app standpoint. This allows us to examine your app’s weaknesses in a drill-down manner. We help you guard against the following app vulnerabilities:

OWASP Mobile Security

The Prioritized Approach provides six security milestones that will help merchants and other organizations incrementally protect against the highest risk factors and escalating threats while on the road to PCI DSS compliance.

The VAPT Process

VAPT IOT Penetration Testing

Vulnerability Discovery

We understand the app functionality, scour third-party libraries and all publicly available app information, to build an exhaustive VAPT plan that plugs all security holes.

Mobile Application Penetration Testing

Complete Assessment

Conduct an app check pre and post publishing through static, dynamic, behavioral, and archive analysis and also thoroughly evaluate iOS and Android app installation packages.

VAPT IOT Penetration Testing

Vulnerability exploitation

We wear a hacker’s hat and use advanced hacking techniques to exploit identified vulnerabilities and escalating privileges to hack into privilege accounts.

API Penetration Testing VAPT

Precise and Timely Reporting

A comprehensive analysis and evaluation of vulnerabilities and their risk rating is submitted to clients on time and in an easy to understand manner.
