Mobile app pen testing is a thorough and methodical review of your mobile application’s cyber security. As a comprehensive security assessment, it helps you find and prioritize your mobile app’s security flaws. Today’s business world is mobile-first, which makes the security of your mobile apps of paramount importance to the success of your business. Target Defense’s seasoned penetration testers will hunt down security vulnerabilities in your mobile app and offer advice on how to fix them.

Best standards of mobile app pen testing
Our experienced security testers use static and dynamic application security testing (SAST and DAST). A SAST source-code assessment is a great way to discover security vulnerabilities introduced by poor coding practices. In this way, SAST is a vital part of securing your software development lifecycle (SDLC), preventing data breaches from the get-go.
Your need a test you can trust, so our expert penetration testers are certified to testing standards, such as CREST, that are recognized across the world. Best practices are also important to us, which is why we use pre-defined methodologies, including OWASP, in our mobile app penetration tests.
