of organizations sacrificed mobile security in 2019.
Verizon’s 2020 Mobile Security Index estimates that 43% percent of organizations sacrificed mobile security in the rush to market. This compromise allowed easy exploitation through a vast array of vulnerabilities. The challenge to secure mobile apps doesn't simply lie within the mobile device source code, it also rests in client server systems where data is transmitted back and forth.
When testing for mobile application security, the server side is often forgotten. This allows various attacks on users such as phishing emails. Poor security in data communication between the client and the server can lead to extensively compromised data.
