As more and more companies look to unleash their latest apps into the market, customers are getting increasingly spoilt for choice. Quite expectedly as users get more choice their performance expectations from an app also tends to rise. However given the fragmented ecosystem especially in case of Android devices, designing an app that works perfectly on most targeted phones is a huge challenge. Thus there is an acute demand for mobile application performance testing solutions that can give app publishers a reality check before their products hit the market.
While time to market for mobile apps is quite short as compared to traditional desktop software, the challenges they are experience are quite expansive. A multitude of issues from device and OS variations to network performance have a significant effect on how an app is received by a particular audience and thus mobile application performance testing is a critical requirement for bridging the shortcomings. For example a great gaming app which is designed for the Android Jelly Bean OS may work perfectly on 5 inch Smartphone screens however the same may be difficult to play on a 3 inch screen thereby pushing away a significant user base away from the app. Similarly such an application may also not work too well with devices which do not have a highly responsive touch screen. Given such intricate complicacies, mobile application performance testing can help you understand the key aspects that can affect your app’s acceptance in its target market. Further based on the inputs gained from the mobile application performance testing that is performed on your app, you can fine-tune it to appeal to a broader audience.
Security of the app and the user data it encompasses is another critical aspect that we need to consider before releasing a mobile app. As more and more people start using apps for a variety of work including financial transactions, hackers are increasingly looking to target apps that may be vulnerable. Further a compromised app can cause huge hassle to a user or if the vulnerability is exposed in the backend, a lot of critical business data can get lost. Thus it is mandatory for an app publisher to engage in comprehensive mobile application security testing. Already incidents of compromised apps that have stolen valuable user information and disclosed contact lists and private information have come into light and given the scenario it makes sense to engage a qualified mobile application security testing solution firm to thoroughly test your app.
If your mobile has the facility for online payments or gains user data then there is a great chance that you are covered under stringent data security and privacy laws that are prevalent across most of the developed world. Any disclosure of user data or a hacking attack on your mobile servers through compromised apps can land you in legal trouble and thus it is imperative that you undertake mobile application security testing to ensure that your apps cannot be used to gain unauthorized access.
However, testing the application performance in mobile ecosystem becomes challenging when it comes to establishing environment similar to real world. Variety of networks (Wifi, 2G, 3G, 3G+ and 4G LTE) with their own unique characteristics and platforms like android and iOS having different performance parameters makes it difficult to test application performance the traditional way.
Our mobile performance and security testing services help you test the performance and security of your web, Hybrid or native mobile app in a real world environment. Deploying our ground breaking performance testing methodology, we ensure that we test your application from all three perspectives (On Device performance, Network performance and server performance)
Our lab, equipped with Network simulators allow us to recreate the real world network conditions in our lab (like latency, packet drop, network noises and others) enabling us to test your application for use cases like app response when network changes from 2G\3G to Wifi and vice versa, shared image size validation, on device performance parameters like battery CPU and network consumption and others
Our mobile application security testing methodology is specially aligned to uncover mobile security threats like Insecure Data storage, Client side injection, Side channel data leakage and weak server side controls. We undertake static code analysis and deep black box security testing approaches to uncover the hidden most security threats.
