In Brief

Why do we need Security Testing Tools for Mobile Applications?

Mobile Penetration Testing is a comprehensive process that involves a lot of different aspects of testing. It includes authorization, authentication, complete data security, any vulnerabilities for hacking, session management, and more. All this can make the process complex if done manually. The tools have pre-written scripts for testing, and everything is organized to avoid chaos. The use of these tools makes the testing process automated to a large extent. Eventually, it leads to faster and more accurate test results.
