Mobile Application Penetration Testing

Both business and public organisations are using mobile apps in new and compelling ways, from banking applications to healthcare platforms. Managing security risk is a growing challenge on these platforms, with new vulnerabilities found every day. Is your mobile app safe from attackers?

Mobile Application Security

Needsec offers market leading mobile application penetration testing services. We provide a holistic risk assessment against your mobile application. Our industry-leading consultants have vast experience in both iPhone and Android, provide deep dive testing into local, on-device security issues, back-end web services, and the API’s which connect them.

How We Test


OWASP Mobile Application Penetration Test

Our proven methodology is based on the industry-recognised Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) guidelines to assess every aspect of the application’s security – from authentication mechanisms through to business logic and beyond.


Leading Expertise

Each mobile security assessment simulates multiple attack vectors and risks, including insecure storage, stolen device risk, mobile malware attacks, and both authenticated/unauthenticated app users.  Apps residing on in-house mobile devices? We provide custom scenarios to map enterprise conditions as well.


Static, Dynamic, and Source Code Pentesting

Integrating both static and dynamic analysis, our security experts test each mobile app at-rest and during runtime to identify all vulnerabilities.   This deep-dive methodology also targets local vulnerabilities as well, such as insecure storage of credentials, Android backups including sensitive app data, etc.


Standard and Jailbroken Device Testing

Our mobile security assessments take multiple attack vectors and threats into account, including Jailbroken iOS and rooted Android devices.
By comparing the vulnerabilities of both options, we can demonstrate the security risk from multiple user types, including dedicated attackers and everyday users.


Complimentary Retesting

We provide complimentary retesting following project completion. This allows you to verify your remediation work has been implemented securely and the identified security risks have been closed.
