Mobile Application Security
Mobile technology and smart devices are highly used, and misunderstood.
Technology is ever changing. Therefore, malicious hackers are exploiting your vulnerabilities. We use our phones for everything, and our mobile applications are a target.
Here at MainNerve, our mobile application penetration testing truly simulates the attacks of a real-world malicious hacker–which includes specialized vulnerability assessments, automated scans, and manual techniques.
These cyber services all work together to reduce false positives and identify application security gaps.
All of our Mobile Application penetration tests go beyond standards – including NIST – and your test will come with a detailed final report.
Your detailed final report will include an executive summary, a listing of findings, risk ratings and remediation recommendations. A letter of attestation can be provided upon your request.
Throughout the mobile application penetration testing process, automated, as well as comprehensive manual testing, will be used to identify all application and business-logic related vulnerabilities.
MainNerve’s mobile application penetration testing is designed to identify vulnerabilities in applications on mobile phones that could be exploited. MainNerve utilizes a highly-manual approach to discovering contextual security vulnerabilities that are specific to mobile applications. Help your mobile apps excel in the market with a comprehensive, risk-based approach to manually identify critical mobile application vulnerabilities… and realize a resilient mobile app that can withstand sophisticated cyber threats.
Understanding the Application
The understanding phase of the mobile application penetration testing process is vital to the success of the test. It is very important that the security testing team fully understands each of the features/functions in the application. The team does this by browsing through the application, going through the user manuals or if required a walkthrough of the application along with the application owner or developers. We work with you to ensure we are fully aware of its aims, functions, etc.
Creating a Threat Profile (Test Plan)
MainNerve mobile application penetration tests focus on the goals of your adversary, namely what they want to achieve. MainNerver creates a threat profile of all the threats we have identified and becomes the starting point for our subsequent tests. This begins by mapping each threat in the threat profile to specific pages on your site. The test plan then identifies all the attacks MainNerve needs to carry out to assess each specific threat. For example, the MainNerve tester might navigate to the application directory and study the preferences file, xml file, plist file, or SQLite databases.
Manual and Automated Testing
Once the test plan and test cases are prepared and approved by a senior member of the team, the mobile app testing phase begins. This will be a combination of manual and automated checks and will adhere to the test plan. During the course of testing the tester may identify additional tests or attacks to perform, in which case the test plan will be updated and subsequent tests may be performed. The team takes up the threats one by one and starts performing the tests. If a test case is successful it is marked as unsafe in the test plan.
At MainNerve, we consider the final phase of the mobile application penetration testing process, reporting, to be the most crucial and instrumental step. We take great care to demonstrate the value of the test and our findings. During this phase, a final report is prepared detailing all the vulnerabilities found in the mobile application, including their respective solutions. The report is sent to the client, securely, after it has been reviewed internally.
Web application penetration testing is designed to assess and test the state of your web-facing applications, and provide actionable remediation recommendations for enhancing your security. Ensure that your web applications are protected from malicious cyber threat actors.
Network penetration testing assists with the identification and examination of vulnerabilities for external, Internet-facing and internal, intranet systems. A network pen test will help determine whether an attack can exploit and compromise targeted systems. Take the next step to improving your business’ security with a network pen test.
API Testing is a type of software testing that involves testing application programming interfaces directly, and as part of integration testing, to determine if they meet expectations for functionality, reliability, performance, and security. Ensure that APIs into your site, or API calls from your site to a third-party service, aren’t vulnerable to cyber threats.
What Our Clients Say
In 12 years of tests, you are the first company that found anything higher than a low risk. Phone and cameras were never discovered in the test, let alone accessed. Great to always get a different perspective from a test.
Our local partner that normally provides us with vulnerability and penetration testing was unable to help us this year. We were lucky enough to find MainNerve as a solution to our problem. MainNerve was very responsive to us and worked under a very tight timeframe to perform vulnerability and penetration testing for us and help us out of a tough situation. They went above and beyond. They provided us with some additional guidance in other security areas as well. We will continue to use MainNerve each year now for our security testing needs. We are glad we found them.
I was quite pleasantly surprised by the engagement. I think the thing I liked best about it was that everyone at MainNerve really took the time to listen and understand what we did, why we were doing it, and our business goals. It gave us confidence that we were in the right hands.
Always nice to have a dependable vendor that is fully committed and reasonably priced.
It’s been a great partnership for the last 4 years. When NYDFS Cybersecurity regulation was announced back in 2017, I did not have much experience in the security fields such as risk assessment, vulnerability assessment, and Penetration testing and was not comfortable creating the plan. I was searching for information on the internet and came across multiple companies. I contacted MainNerve and they explained the process as well as their background which gave me comfort in the overall process as well as the confidence in the MainNerve team. Also, the cost was very reasonable. Going through the signing, planning, assessment, testing, and reporting, they were in constant contact with me and updated me with steps they are taking and when I can expect the next milestone. When we had delays, they were patient and worked with us. We finished all the assessment and testing in the expected time and now we just do it annually. As our IT environment expands, we increase the scope of the testing, and MainNerve has been very flexible with our plans, budget, and timing. I have introduced the MainNerve to colleagues in other companies in NY and they are also satisfied with the service.
Our company has used MainNerve for a number of years for penetration testing. They are very professional and very thorough. They are careful about not disrupting the organization during the testing and they walk you through the test results in a way that makes understanding them very straightforward. We’ll be using them again soon.- Google Review
We have utilized MainNerve for three years for our penetration tests as required by our clients. They have always provided fast, efficient, precise and detailed reports that prove more than sufficient to meet our industry’s high level of data security requirements. Pricing is more than reasonable and they are always available to help and provide guidance when needed. Highly regarded and recommended.- Google Review
MainNerve performs periodic Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Assessment for GETIDA web servers. We are completely satisfied with their service level, response times, and pricing. The final reports are useful for both IT professionals (taking care of the findings) and managers (general understanding of information relevant for sales and customer service) here in GETIDA. Also, the reports were viewed and approved by Amazon security auditor. Good job!- Google Review
Great Experienced staff, made the process fast and easy. I appreciated the attention to detail throughout the whole process and will 10/10 use and recommend for those looking to test their network security.- Google Review
