Mobile Application Penetration Testing

Assessing your mobile applications across both Android and iOS.

What is Mobile Application Penetration Testing?

Mobile application penetration testing is the security assessment of mobile applications by a trusted and experienced security consultant. This service can take place against both iOS and Android mobile applications. Mobile application penetration testing is quickly becoming one of our most popular penetration testing services due to the amount of businesses offering a mobile application to their customer base.

Mobile applications often contain a large number of security vulnerabilities as secure development practices are regularly not observed or simply not considered.

How Can Your Business Benefit From Mobile Application Penetration Testing?

Mobile applications are becoming one of the most popular and widely used pieces of software in the modern day. They can run on different makes and models of phones all with differing operating systems and versions. As a result of their variances, mobile applications present a difficult and unique challenge to securely build and maintain.

  • Customers

    If you offer a mobile application to your customer base, you can provide them with security assurance that your application has been adequately penetration tested and subsequently secured. This can be an effective marketing tool for new and existing clients.

  • CISO / CTO / Heads of IT / IT Security Managers

    Senior management will have the security assurance that their most commonly used services have been penetration tested and subsequently secured in line with security best practice. This mitigates a large portion of organisational risk.

  • Development Teams

    Development teams will benefit from a mobile application penetration test by learning from any mistakes that ultimately end up resulting in security vulnerabilities. This allows for more secure development processes in future products.

Our Mobile Application Penetration Testing Lifecycle

Mobile applications are typically developed to allow end users to remotely connect to various backend systems and environments. They often process and store large amounts of personal data and run on a variety of devices and operating systems. Due to their portable and mobile nature, it is essential that mobile application security is taken seriously and is thoroughly assessed.

Your organisation can rest assured that from start to finish, the process is as simple as can be – whilst still receiving an exceptional penetration testing service.

This is quickly becoming one of our most popular service offerings with our testers utilising, and often developing, cutting edge tools and techniques.


Penetration Testing Middle East will learn about the key features of your mobile application through a scoping call or technical demo. Questions will be asked between all involved parties.


A proposal will be issued detailing the items in scope, terms and conditions, cost and duration of the project. Once this contract is mutually signed, the project will be scheduled and will shortly commence.


Your dedicated penetration tester will begin enumerating the mobile application to identify potential attack paths and security vulnerabilities.

The penetration tester will perform the penetration test and will identify and safely exploit any identified security vulnerabilities. Safe proof-of-concepts will be demonstrated.

Where previously agreed, Penetration Testing Middle East will assist your organisation in fully mitigating any identified risks. This will include working with existing development teams.
