An assessment with both automated and manual testing should provide the information needed to move on to the next step remediation of the found vulnerabilities
Black box testing (or dynamic testing) begins with automated scans, which can be valuable for getting a quick read of the security state of an application through a catalog of technical vulnerabilities.
Source code reviews are based on direct observations of the code that will actually create the behavior. This allows for more insightful analysis and specific recommendations that are needed.
Penetration testing simulates a malicious attack in order to perform in-depth business logic testing and determine the feasibility and impact of an attack. The testing is performed internally and externally to the system.
Applications running on Apple iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile environments bring a unique challenge to information security in that a single application may consist of web services, embedded browsers and native code components
Security is a part of every stage in the development process:
