Mobile Application Security Threats

Introduction
  • Mobile application security has come up as a
    great concern in the recent times as the mobile
    security breach cases have increased
    significantly. Today when it comes to mobile
    applications for open-source operating system
    like Android, hackers can quite comfortably get
    through your application to get an access to your
    precious data. And therefore, you need to discuss
    with your mobile application development company
    partner to add extra security parameters to your
    mobile app.

Introduction
  • In case, if a mobile application is hacked or if
    there is any security breach there are various
    risks associated to it like unauthorised data
    access, risk of defaming of a companys
    reputation, manipulation of data, etc. But, what
    are the factors which cause these mobile app
    security threats. Let us see what are the
    perspective mobile application development
    services need to focus on in order to develop
    purely secure apps

  • Server Side Authorisation Is Weak
  • The signal and response generated by the app
    based on users query is based on the response
    from a server and this communication on the
    server side is prone to be easily hacked by the
    hackers. As a precautionary measure, you need to
    hire top Android app developers who make sure
    that all the traditional security parameters are
    taken into consideration and met.

  • Server Side Authorisation Is Weak
  • The developers need to employ an automated
    scanner that could scan the app and server for
    these security threats and hint them. The main
    reasons for these security bugs is small app
    development budget and high dependability on the
    OS inbuilt security. However, lack of authorised
    access levels can also be responsible for
    security breaches.

6
  • Binary Protection Standards Does Not Match
  • One of the main reasons why security breaches
    take place is lack of binary protection. If your
    web and mobile app development company fails to
    include binary protection to your app the hackers
    can easily hack it by reversing the code and
    manipulating it by injecting a malware. This can
    add as a possible threat and can be responsible
    for data theft, frauds, loss of any secure
    finance data, etc.

  • Binary Protection Standards Does Not Match
  • To make sure that it is not the case, you need
    to discuss with your mobile application
    development company partner to use the binary
    hardening techniques they are familiar with for
    your app development. This technique makes the
    binary files secure and proofs them against any
    common hacking or security exploits. It can
    automatically fix the vulnerabilities in the
    legacy code without modifying the source code.

  • Insecure Storage Issues Are Common
  • One of the main reasons that are giving rise to
    security threats in mobile applications is the
    issue of improper and not so secure data storage.
    In the cases where the budget is low and the
    development team could not make it up for data
    storage on their end, they depend on the client
    side for data storage.

9
  • Insecure Storage Issues Are Common
  • In this case, the client side has an insecure
    data storage environment which is not sandboxed
    and therefore is prone to security breaches. To
    avoid this, mobile application development
    solutions company generally add an extra layer of
    encryption upon the base layer, which makes the
    app secure against any security breach and
    unauthorised access.
