Mobile Application Security: Overview
The business environment in modern times is hyper connected, with organizations exploring ways to enhance their mobile connectivity, thereby enabling easy access to critical information regarding the business from anywhere at any time. This puts confidential data at risk and makes businesses vulnerable to cyber theft.
Mobile application security has thus emerged as a crucial field, providing in-depth cover for mobile-based applications. The services provided include custom scans and vulnerability checks through testing capabilities such as dynamic application security testing (DAST), interactive application security testing (IAST), and static application security testing (SAST). Mobile application security is designed to help businesses identify critical threats and secure important applications from potential threats.
This involves studying the structure of mobile applications and examining the methods in which they can exchange data in a cohesive manner. Mobile application security also helps businesses locate the key patches in the application that can be exploited by hackers for financial gains. The functionalities offered by mobile application security therefore include source code review, threat mitigation, behavioral analysis, vulnerability ratings, and identification of vulnerability patterns.
Mobile application security is designed as a holistic security approach that ensures the confidentiality of data transferred among mobile networks, while ensuring visibility among business processes.
