HP: 90% of Enterprise Mobile Apps Have Security Vulnerabilities

Most of the problems were on the server side.




Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

HP recently used its Fortify On Demand for Mobile product to scan 2,107 iOS apps created by companies on the Forbes Global 2000 list. The company found that nine out of ten apps scanned had security flaws; 71 percent of those were server-side vulnerabilities. The most common types of problems included the following:

  • 86 percent lacked binary hardening protection.
  • 86 percent accessed potentially private data sources.
  • 75 percent did not encrypt stored data.
  • 18 percent transmitted unencrypted data.

The company says that enterprise mobile development teams can avoid these problems if they follow best practices for security and testing.
