Why Mobile App Security Needs To Be Tested?

Due to a heavy dependency on mobile devices, users tend to store their precious data on it. Mobile technology uses Android or iOS operating systems. Both of those are vulnerable to security problems, just as any other operating system. Similarly, the applications created and running on those are vulnerable too, just as any other applications. Hence all applications running on a mobile device pose a bigger security threat to the data because of the following reasons.

  • Data is stored on the device
  • Data flows over the wire/wireless
  • There are no definite standards on how data should be secured while being on the device.
  • There is not enough awareness on how data should be encrypted while being sent over wire/wireless.
