What is mobile application penetration testing

Mobile application penetration testing is a crucial process in ensuring the functionality, usability and security of mobile applications across various platforms such as iOS and Android.

Through comprehensive testing, potential issues such as functionality bugs, crashes, compatibility problems, performance bottlenecks and security vulnerabilities can be identified and resolved.

Mobile application penetration testing encompasses various aspects such as user interface testing, functional testing, compatibility testing, performance testing and security testing.

With thorough mobile application penetration testing, organisations can deliver a seamless user experience and maintain the application’s reliability while safeguarding user data and mitigating the risk of security breaches or data leaks.

Our method

Blackfoot’s manual penetration testing, or exploit testing, builds on vulnerability assessment results to simulating real-world attack methods.

Unlike automated vulnerability scanning, our manual penetration testing is delivered by our highly skilled testers who actively seek to progress vulnerabilities through the cyber kill-chain. They will assess the security of your mobile application by employing a combination of tools, techniques and, most importantly, creativity. As a CREST-certified organisation, Blackfoot penetration tests follow an approved, structured methodology.

Our expert testers first establish a deep understanding of the mobile application, its operation and configuration, and the associated operator roles and access permissions.

Our testers will then seek to discover any potentially exploitable vulnerabilities in the application, before testing their exploitability. They’ll also validate whether successful exploitation exposes other areas or provides potential threat routes to other business systems.

Based on clearly defined test objectives, this involves exploring compromised systems to determine whether they host sensitive files or information, allow privilege escalation or permit access to password information which could be used to compromise other systems or internal applications.

Blackfoot reports its findings along with clear recommendations for prioritised remediation activities.
