Identify key areas for improvement
Our team relies on precise and diligent manual testing to provide the most comprehensive and effective evaluation of your mobile applications. Both static analysis and dynamic testing of the mobile application are performed. Mobile application penetration testing can be either focused on IOS, Android, or both. The testing methodology follows the OWASP Mobile Security Testing Guide.Get Started
Mobile Application Penetration Testing Phases
Our Penetration Testers execute a thorough, well thought out project that consists of several phases
Planning and Preparation
Before starting a Mobile Application Security Assessment, a review the tester meets directly with the client and discusses any specific areas of concern. Rhymetec typically tests against as a normal user and will start the assessment without any additional information other than the mobile application store location and account type desired.
The tester will attempt to disassemble the application package file and determine paths the application takes locally on the device and over the backend API. Both static and dynamic analysis tools are used to determine the full footprint of the application and potential areas of concern.
Penetration Attempt and Exploitation
Both automated and manual testing are performed against the mobile application to determine if any data leakage can occur locally or through the device. Additionally the application is checked for unsafe practices and weaknesses in the API that the mobile application uses. The OWASP MSTG (Mobile Security Testing Guide) is to create test cases for this phase.
Analysis and Reporting
The tester will input findings into the internal documentation system as the test progresses. Examples of exploits and weaknesses are presented in a standardized report that include details about findings and how to remediate them. The report is created with both an executive summary for C-Level staff and detailed findings areas where developers can take action on findings.

We Can Help You
With a Rhymetec Mobile Application Penetration Test, thorough communication and reporting is our goal so you can effectively address all vulnerabilities to protect your data and other business assets. All findings are reviewed before being added to your executive report so your team has a detailed understanding of findings. Plus, you have direct contact with the penetration testers throughout the process for any inquiries. Our testers focus heavily on manual testing over automated, so processes are unique to your business and needs.
Almost all of our Penetration Tests take approximately one week for initial testing. Upon notification of critical findings coupled with an executive presentation of initial findings, our team will provide an overall risk matrix for further action.
A Mobile Application Penetration Test will provide a comprehensive analysis of the security features of the application and back-end components. This analysis will identify key areas within the application where security can be improved.
All businesses that use mobile applications within their organization should implement regular mobile application penetration testing in their security practices to ensure proactive data protection of sensitive computer systems and corporate data assets.
What Our Clients Are Saying About Us
Graphium Health Senior Application Architect
“The testing was very thorough and complete. Communication and feedback afterwards was easy to understand and very fast. We were able to quickly identify and fix all of the issues that were brought up and the team was able to verify the fixes without issue.”
Fond Technologies, Inc. Principal Software Architect
“The team at Rhymetec was incredibly easy to work with from start to finish. They were able to accommodate our extended Penetration Testing schedule for remediation and retesting. And the ability to communicate directly with the testers via Slack was a time saver and enormously helpful.”
