Web-based attacks have become routine for any organization with an internet presence. Modern implementations also support mobile applications, and offer full function support optimized for the mobile environment.
True support of mobile platforms includes its own complications. Android devices include a well-defined security architecture, which may evolve with device and Android releases, as well as updates or add-ons from additional supporting vendors like phone manufacturers or cellular carriers. Generally, systems that do not follow this security architecture would not operate in a predictable manner under the official Android releases. Unfortunately, attackers use alternate devices, such devices that have been jailbroken or rooted, and Android emulators, which do not follow the rules expected in Android security architectures, but may still operate, running supported applications yet bypassing security controls. Android application testing helps identify and address vulnerabilities in the code, configuration, or deployment of the application that can be exploited by attackers to gain unauthorized access to sensitive information or perform harmful actions on the device. This can help ensure the security of the application and protect against potential breaches. Additionally, such testing can be beneficial for getting your app published on the Google Play Store.
Evolve Security’s Android penetration testing is designed to help you proactively manage these risks. Evolve Security provides information to help you identify, prioritize, remediate, manage, and report on the internal application vulnerabilities. Since the web and your supporting applications are very dynamic, Evolve Security is committed using our Darwin Attack® portal to enable near real-time communications, providing you with results as the test progresses. And these results are not just jargon laden content, but meaningful details about the identified vulnerabilities, potential consequences, and recommended remediations.
This active collaboration means you can start prioritization and remediation immediately, making the best use of the actionable information associated with the identified vulnerabilities. Evolve Security ensures you have details that enable you to conduct proactive remediation, reducing the exploitable vulnerabilities in your environment, enhancing your control and security, improving compliance, and reducing risk.
