Mobile Device Testing

mobile-device-testingWith the growth of Mobile Device Technologies (MDT) over the past decade, having a mobile device security testing strategy has never been more important. Mobile penetration testing and encryption analysis has also added challenges to your organization’s unique privacy requirements.

Installing a Mobile Device Management (MDM) system helps effectively track and control company assets, as well as detect foreign devicesinvading your network. Add these challenges, along with Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) complexity, and the need for robust security testing procedures becomes clear.

CyberSec uses threat-case model workflows to help identify software, hardware, and network risks.

We work closely with your development and administrative teamsbringing best practice frameworks that cover your assessment needs.

Validation Challenges include:

  • Configuration lock-down
  • Phone-home application risks
  • Version patchcontrol
  • Cellular and Wi-Fi challenges
  • Company cached information
  • Jail-break or Rooting risks
  • Email authentication
  • Black and White box testing fortification
  • Virus and Malware injections
  • Biometric authentication
  • BYOD privacy
  • Asset tracking capabilities
  • Countermeasure strategies
  • Data stored locally
  • Bluetooth weakness

Portability Evaluation Services

Our leading industry professionals offer extensive field-harden experience for penetration and platform-specific MDT solutions, including application and operating system testing.

  • Apple IOS – iPad tablets and iPhones
  • Google Android OS – Tablets and smartphones
  • Microsoft Windows Mobile Suites

The equipment is scanned, producing audit logs that we consolidate into a risk findings report for your management and support teams to use for future mitigation.

Identity Portals – Mobile

PII vulnerabilities

The cybercriminal community has been focusing on Personal Identification Information (PII), which is ca primary target for hackers.

More studies are showing web apps for banking institutes or credit card access are the most common applications installed on mobile devices. PII information must be used to access these apps. Data transfer or locally cached data to mobile devices is what the cybercriminal community focuses their cracks on.

Unless this equipment isfully analyzed for network communication vulnerabilities, most web-app programs installed are not secure or might be sending back your PII fields to their application web site.

Clear-text or unencrypted data transmissions formats is also a concern.

SMS Text Phishing

The use of smartphones and tablets over cellular telephone networks brings a new paradigm to the security framework model.

When emails can be sent to SMS Texting gateway systems from your telephone provider, these spammed links could send you to false sites or deliver malicious code execution.

Man-in-the-middle attacks

Hackers at coffee shops, restaurants, or parking in front of your house or office place can use “discovery” software to identify if your Wi-Fi device is enabled.

They can then network sniff you and detect if you are using no-encryption or week WEP-based configurations that they can easily exploit without you knowing about it. Our configuration analysis reports on what settings you need to help prevent this.
