Practice Areas
  • Mobile Application Security Assessment
  • Source Code Review


Our Client’s Challenge:

  • A Client sought Security Compass’s assistance to perform security assessments of their mobile applications, various application program interfaces (APIs), and a software development kit (SDK), as part of an ongoing security program.
  • They had a requirement to confirm that their mobile applications, APIs, and the SDK did not collect, store, or disclose any sensitive information that may impact their customers or the organization. They also sought assurance that the SDK and APIs did not introduce new security vulnerabilities into developed mobile applications.

Our Approach:

  • Working with our Client to understand specific security concerns around each component, Security Compass performed independent assessments of our Client’s mobile applications, APIs, and the SDK to evaluate the risk and potential vulnerabilities in each solution.

The Result:

  • Although no major findings were identified through our testing, strategic recommendations were provided to help our Client improve their security posture further.
  • Security Compass was able to outline a detailed review of testing methodology, providing our Client assurance that their internal security program was effective and that coverage of each component’s potential threats had been reviewed by an external independent party.
  • We provided our Client with the added assurance that there was no mishandling of sensitive information and that the SDK and APIs were not introducing vulnerabilities into developed applications.
Security Compass provided our Client with assurance that their internal security program was effective and that coverage of each component’s potential threats had been reviewed by an external independent party.
