For the first time in the world, the new feature in mobile app testing software is enabling convenient, real-time testing of mobile phone apps.
FREMONT, CA: Mobile app security and privacy software solution provider, NowSecure, has launched Interactive Security Testing (IAST). It is the world’s first IAST, crafted specifically for mobile apps. The new release has enabled NowSecure to provide its clients to achieve better risk and compliance monitoring capabilities against the growing counts of vulnerabilities.
The number of mobile apps available on online platforms has reached an all-time high today. Mobile app usage has also multiplied significantly with the explosion of smartphone devices. These developments are accompanied by a rise in security vulnerabilities and data privacy risks within mobile apps. Preventing these security shortcomings within apps is the primary responsibility of the companies developing the apps. With NowSecure’s IAST, companies can achieve enhanced capabilities and carry out more in-depth inspections into risks present in mobile apps.
IAST allows the testing of security aspects of mobile applications while they are running. By incorporating instrumentations in a mobile app, the feature enables real-time capturing of data. This data can help stakeholders identify potential threats that are otherwise difficult to detect. IAST, in addition to making risk detection comprehensive and faster, also ensures zero false-positives. Besides, the tests apply to apps built in any language or framework. “NowSecure understands that customers want comprehensive security and privacy testing solutions that are easy use. We have always been market leaders in mobile app security and will continue to deliver innovation and value to our customers,” says Alan Snyder, CEO of NowSecure.
The addition of IAST to the Static Application Security Testing (SAST) and Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) capabilities that the NowSecure Platform offers has resulted in making security and privacy analysis of mobile apps integrated and automated. “We think of it like a race car,” adds Snyder. “If SAST is walking around and looking at the car and DAST is driving the car around the track to feel how it handles, then IAST is using sensors to collect data on how the car is actually performing under the hood. Like instrumentation in a modern race car, our IAST innovations deliver a plethora of security, privacy and data telemetry that enables much better understanding of mobile app performance and risk.”
