Mobile devices are the subject of many security discussions, but it’s often mobile applications that serve as attack vectors. Enterprises are moving to a broad range of mobile devices in the workforce. PaRaBaL offers a variety of resources and services to assist enterprises in managing mobile application security.

PaRaBaL App Security Resources

There are a number of reasons why mobile applications can be especially difficult to secure. Some of these vulnerabilities have nothing to do with malicious intent; rather, they are the result of inexperienced or hurried programmers. For example, bad data storage habits are one of the main entry points for hackers. Databases like SQLite make it easy to store compact data on a local device, but when the data is stored in clear text or in XML, a readable, plain-text file that makes application data easily accessible. Not using encryption in application transmission protocols can be an issue as well, for example, when transferring calendar or contact information to a server.


iOS Testing Harnesses and Training

For organizations using “i” devices that wants to ensure their mobile applications are safe for use in internal application stores, PaRaBaL can customize testing tools to fit your unique security challenges. PaRaBaL uses proprietary methodologies to build automated application testing tools for iOS applications. After building our automated testing tools, PaRaBaL will send experienced training instructors to your location, to ensure organizations are fully trained on how the tools work, the procedures needed to fully test an application and the methodologies behind each individual tool.
