Mobile Security Testing
Definition - What does Mobile Security Testing mean?
Techopedia explains Mobile Security Testing
Outside of mobile application security testing, security experts may also pursue mobile device security testing, which focuses on the use of a particular device and a proprietary operating system. Here, testing is based more on looking at the use of the device than on looking at the individual application code. This can be considered as a kind of simulation where security experts look at the use of the device from the perspective of a cyberattacker and then try to fix the problem.
Many different types of mobile security testing have emerged to protect all of the sensitive information that now gets processed through mobile devices and mobile networks, rather than through conventional personal computer workstations attached to the Internet.
