Mobile applications are at the heart of our mobile usage, with 7 millions of them currently available on stores around the world. By providing all kind of services remotely, they have become an essential part of our routine and handle more sensitive data than any other media.
While developing mobile applications at a fast pace to keep up with business needs, security measures are often let aside. By skipping security testing, mobile applications are often distributed with internal flaws possibly leading to data leakage and malicious activities.

DATA PRIVACY LAWS & MOBILE APPLICATIONS
Privacy laws around the world urge organizations to implement security measures to protect data. Pradeo relies on a trusted and independent security expertise to ensure users that applications do not endanger data confidentiality, in accordance with data protection regulations such as GDPR, FTC, HIPAA, PIPEDA...
MOBILE APPLICATIONS: TWO KINDS OF INTERNAL SECURITY THREATS
VULNERABILITIES
A vulnerability comes from either the application’s source code or from the libraries it hosts. Hundred of code vulnerabilities are referenced by the US National Vulnerability Database, the OWASP mobile security project, US-CERT, etc. Vulnerabilities expose mobile applications to data leakage and attacks such as Man-In-The-Middle, Denial of Service, etc.
UNEXPECTED BEHAVIORS
A mobile application can perform unwanted actions because of the external libraries it hosts (79% of mobile applications embed third-party libraries) or as a result of a development negligence between testing and production. Both can lead to hidden data leakage and potentially malicious actions.
