Mobile Application Security (Android)

Dynamic Application Security Testing is a process that actively investigates the application penetration tests that are performed to detect potential vulnerabilities. It is an alternative to security testing based on checking the source code of your application. Interactive Application Security Testing, or IAST for short, is a tool that combines static and dynamic analysis of mobile application codes in a runtime environment.

The security of your mobile applications needs to be assessed to protect them from cyber attacks. One of the most important aspects to consider before conducting a security assessment and application security testing is to ensure that the entire team is in sync with the process. 
    
Static Application Security Testing (SAST) is a tool for analyzing encoding, design, and conditions that indicate vulnerabilities. It's a great tool for fixing vulnerabilities alerts tremendously, as well as for developing new security features and enhancements.
    
Pen testing for mobile apps also includes the use of SAST in conjunction with other security testing tools such as Google's Mobile Application Security Assessment Tool (MSA). This is a great tool for those who want to learn more about how vulnerabilities occur in mobile applications. For our purposes, we consider vulnerabilities as vulnerabilities in a mobile application, not in the actual application itself. 
    
One of the most important aspects to make an Android application secure for mobile application security tests is the use of mobile devices as the preferred target, where attackers can use them to gain further access to the application server. 

Applications Security Assessments are security tests that reveal the vulnerability of an application to a wide range of attacks, also known as ways to exploit the web or mobile application.

Our practices meet a variety of security assessment requirements, ranging from awareness-raising to widespread intrusion to ethical hacking, by iteratively identifying the weakest links in the chain and prioritizing real threats. Ignoring the presence of a vulnerability in a mobile application, or even the existence of the application itself, is no longer an acceptable defense, as deliberate ignorance and criminal intent are now being equated by compliance regulators and government agencies.
