High-Tech Bridge Debuts Mobile X-Ray
October 13, 2017
The new service performs dynamic (DAST), static (SAST) and behavioral analysis of native and hybrid iOS and Android apps.
High-Tech Bridge isoffering a free online service “Mobile X-Ray” to test mobile application security and privacy.
It promptly detects the wide spectrum of most common weaknesses and vulnerabilities, including OWASP Mobile Top Ten, and provides a user-friendly report with remediation guidance.
Recently, Uber’s mobile app was caught with a dubious capacity to silently take screenshots of user’s phone screen. Just before, Equifax had to remove their mobile applications from the app stores due to interceptability of sensitive data. Now, anyone can proactively detect similar problems using the free service.
Since the beginning of this year, High-Tech Bridge’s award-winning Application Security Testing (AST) platform ImmuniWeb® offers the most comprehensive testing of mobile applications and their backends, using a hybrid security testing approach and a machine learning technology. Below are 2017 statistics, obtained from mobile apps tested by ImmuniWeb® Mobile:
Ilia Kolochenko, CEO and Founder of High-Tech Bridge, says: “Mobile applications have become an inseparable part of everyday business and private life. In light of skyrocketing data breaches, many different research reports urge to enhance mobile application security and privacy. Unfortunately, most developers just don’t have enough resources, time or budget to properly test their mobile app before going to production. At High-Tech Bridge, we are excited to fulfil this gap and offer a unique online service for the benefit of the cybersecurity community and independent developers.
We should however, keep in mind that the most dangerous and detrimental vulnerabilities mainly lay in the mobile backend that can be reliably detected using ImmuniWeb® Mobile. It also provides advanced manual testing of business logic and identify other complicated flaws undetectable in full automation.”
