Continuous Mobile Application Security Scanning

Why Mobile-Focused Scanning is Vital

Organizations today develop mobile apps in-house and also purchase mobile apps from third parties for workplace productivity, business growth, and customer engagement. While most organizations have adopted code scanning and pentesting for apps developed in-house, many need more specialized tools to uncover mobile-specific exploitable vulnerabilities and keep pace with high-frequency mobile application releases. Apps purchased from third parties process enterprise-sensitive data, but no application vetting occurs during procurement. In either case, most scanning is too late or infrequent, resulting in vulnerable mobile apps being deployed and used.

Mobile application scanning is vital

Commonly Overlooked Issues During Scanning

Presence of Malicious Code & URLS
Hidden Third-Party Behaviors
Insecure Data Storage & Data Leakage
Insecure Communication & Misconfigurations
Weak or Absent Code & Runtime Protections
Hardcoded Credentials & Keys

“Mobile applications are central to a company’s digital transformation. Ensuring these apps do not present vulnerabilities that can be exploited is essential to enable this transformative process. Mobile AST largely uses similar techniques to traditional AST, but it must adapt those techniques to the mobile device environment and the more agile development processes that come with it.”

Ensure Apps are Safe, Secure, and Compliant

zScan discovers and fixes compliance, privacy, and security issues before released as part of the development process.

With Zimperium’s zScan solution, developers and security teams can identify privacy, security, and compliance issues in mobile apps. It enables continuous security scanning during development and pre-release testing. Built upon our powerful app analysis engine, APPVisualizer®, we’re redefining mobile app risk identification. Our technology doesn’t just spot exploitable vulnerabilities – it highlights best practices and recommends countermeasures. It allows users to gain meaningful insights into app risks that help them make better decisions.

Zimperium’s zScan:

  • Performs an in depth static and dynamic analysis of the binary and provides a list of prioritized findings;
  • Assesses compliance violations tied to NIAP, PCI, GDPR, OWASP, MASVS, HIPAA, and more to avoid costly fines.
  • Assesses the app’s SBOM to identify risks within third-party components to mitigate supply chain risks.
  • Allows for frictionless integration across the DevSecOps lifecycle integration via plugins, APIs, and GitHub actions
  • Delivers application assessments that can be accessed in JSON, SARIF, and PDF formats.
