Why is Mobile Application Security Testing Necessary?
Mobile application security testing is the process of identifying vulnerabilities in an application and mitigating them before a potentially malicious hacker exploits them.
Here's why you need to conduct it:
- It anticipates the behavior of an attacker and identifies potential weaknesses or loopholes in the app, thus preventing future attacks.
- It lets out the security weaknesses before rolling out the app, thus allowing you to change whatever is flawed at an early stage.
- Third-party app developers are unfamiliar with the enterprise IT environment, security policies, and compliances. Testing the app will ensure meeting all these requisite requirements.
- To ensure adherence to legal compliances and industry security standards.
Who Should Perform Application Security Testing?
At a certain level, everyone involved in the development lifecycle is responsible for application security testing:
- App Owners and Businesses should understand the security requirements and associated risks.
- The Executive Security Managers should overview security activities- assign responsibilities, check progress, and overcome hindrances, if any.
- Developers are responsible for secure coding techniques and should have access to testing tools.
- App Architects should be proficient with security design principles and provide libraries and components to assist developers in achieving more secure applications.
- The audit team is responsible for performing both static and dynamic tests on the app before the launch.
Additionally, businesses should resort to Pentesters and Vulnerability Assessment Solution Providers to ensure robust Application security testing.
Colloquially known as ethical hackers, Pen Testers are professionals who predict and mimic the behavior of an actual hacker to identify and mitigate vulnerabilities in the app.
- Vulnerability Assessment Solution Providers
VA Partners seek commonly known vulnerabilities in an application to identify loopholes and provide a remediation strategy.
Mobile Application Security Scanner: How to Protect Your Business
A mobile app security scanner scans components of an application, network, and device to check for security flaws.
By performing the following procedures, you can protect your business from threats and attacks:
- Static Application Security Testing (SAST)
This is a basic fundamental-level app test performed to check the security of SSL, permissions, code configurations, and other usually exploited vulnerabilities.
- Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)This test is performed on the functional layer of the app to find weaknesses in encryption, permissions, memory, backend code injections, and performance.
- API Security Testing (APIT)
This test is performed to secure all vulnerable endpoints of the app and gives an inside-out analysis of databases, web servers, and other components that communicate with the server.
- SDK Testing
Picture the SDK as the heartbeat of your app - its very lifeline. If it falters, the whole app comes to a standstill. That's why ensuring the SDK and its deployment are carried out with unwavering precision and excellence is crucial.
- Manual Application Security Testing (MAST)
Discover and fortify your app's weak spots before they fall prey to hackers with the unparalleled power of Manual Application Security Testing (MAST). Unlike standard testing scanners, this unique tool boosts your defenses with a human touch. To unleash its full potential, specifically request MAST from services like Appknox, and elevate your security game directly from the dashboard.
