Mobile and Web applications have become an indispensable part of our daily lives, offering convenience, efficiency, and even entertainment at the fingertips. Increased reliance on these applications has also exposed consumers and companies to potential cyber threats and vulnerabilities. 

However, not all application developers prioritise cybersecurity during the development stage, leaving these applications susceptible to malicious exploitation. Hence, it is imperative that systematic vulnerability assessments be carried out. This proactive approach enables companies to fully leverage the myriad advantages of mobile applications without compromising security and user privacy.

WHAT IS APPLICATION VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT AND WHY IS it IMPORTANT? 

Application Vulnerability Assessment is a rigorous testing procedure designed to identify and evaluate security vulnerabilities in software applications such as Mobile Applications (Android, Apple iOS, and others) and Web Applications. The primary objective of this assessment is to empower application owners by uncovering and assessing any potential weaknesses that could jeopardize the security of their applications and compromise user data and privacy. Apart from mitigating cybersecurity vulnerabilities, such testing minimizes the risk of data privacy breaches.

SCOPE OF OUR APPLICATION VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT SERVICES

Mobile Application Vulnerability Assessment 
Web Application Vulnerability Assessment

Mobile Applications: Our comprehensive testing covers mobile applications across all major platforms, including Android, Apple iOS, and Windows. Besides providing insights into the security posture of your applications, the assessments also help businesses detect vulnerabilities or potential threat vectors that malicious actors could exploit. 

Web Applications: Our examination of web applications involves a thorough search for vulnerabilities that may be exploited when accessed from different platforms. The testing process assesses your application's security posture, paving the way for developing a remedial plan to address and mitigate risks. 

Our comprehensive assessments adhere to established guidelines such as OWASP, SANS 25, and NVD.
