With over 3 million apps now deployed in the Apple and Google Play app stores, the importance of mobile application security assessments is at an all time high. With business critical mobile apps handling payment card, healthcare, and financial information on end user devices, organizations are vulnerable to an entirely new class of mobile software vulnerabilities. As the bad guys shift their focus towards attacking mobile applications, defenders are struggling to keep up.
