Passwords seem seriously inadequate for security in our lives. It seems they are always getting compromised or hacked through security flaws in apps, and they never seem strong enough. Most of us will be familiar with the headaches of finding the perfect 8-character-long password, only to be told that you’ve used that one before. Even though we know we should use a different password for every secure video conference or site we create accounts for, it’s hard to remember more than one!

Mobile app security testing is expensive, and that’s a fact. For instance, a single quality penetration test costs around $20,000-$30,000. But do you essentially have to pay this high for the service? Mobile app development companies are cutting costs because of the economic meltdown or investors pulling out. And this could make it hard to set aside tens of thousands of dollars just for penetration testing, right? Moreover, without the right budget, how would you manage app security? Solution?

People these days use mobile apps for everything from ordering groceries and medicines to paying loan EMIs and sending or receiving money. While it sounds convenient, users' private info, such as email, home address, bank details, etc., is always at risk of being stolen. Therefore, it becomes the duty of app development companies to take up stringent measures to ensure complete security for their users. And that's when penetration testing comes into the picture.

The use of Application Programming Interface has skyrocketed with the rapid adoption of cloud, web, and mobile apps. Accordingly, API security testing has had to move into a completely different phase owing to the complexity as well as time and resource limitations. API testing involves testing the APIs directly, including their functionality, reliability, performance, and security.

In public-facing cloud environments with faster than ever deployment and delivery speeds, we need security models that can keep up with the pace. However, security still remains one of the most downplayed affairs in many organizations. While DevOps practices have helped organizations find means to build and react to the market faster, the hurdles of relying on traditional security are still making inroads for more and more threat incidents.

Appknox is the worlds most powerful plug and play security platform which helps Developers, Security Researchers and Enterprises to build a safe and secure mobile ecosystem using a system plus human approach to outsmart smartest hackers.

Our Products:

  • Static Application Security Testing (SAST): With 36 different test cases, Appknox SAST can detect almost every vulnerability that’s lurking around by analyzing your source code. Our tests cover security compliances like OWASP Top 10, PCI-DSS, HIPAA and other commonly used security threat parameters.
  • Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST): Detect advanced vulnerabilities while your application is running. Appknox DAST simulates actual attacks on our test environment to analyze, detect and plug those pesky vulnerabilities that can fall prey to runtime and network attacks like MITM.
  • Application Programming Interface (API) Testing: Quite different than SAST or DAST, Appknox's APIT tests the server-side of your application. Appknox API scan captures API's at requested endpoints and runs 15+ tests on each of these API's to detect vulnerabilities that may compromise the security of the app servers.
  • Manual Application Security Testing (MAST): Nevertheless, the human mind is much sharper than a machine. Hence MAST in our security testing product that utilizes experienced security researchers to test vulnerabilities in your app.
  • Remediation for Mobile Apps: Prioritize remediation with a research-driven security evaluation guided by OWASP security standards. Appknox remediation framework is designed to help development teams understand and remediate vulnerabilities without slowing down on SDLC.

Build and deploy world-class mobile apps for your organizations at scale and leave your mobile app security to us.
