Mobile Neuron offers an annual subscription that includes access to ImmuniWeb’s security analysts and mobile security experts. This access provides support for mobile security testing, including vulnerability exploitation, remediation, and mobile app hardening.

Neuron Mobile is purportedly equipped with DevSecOps and CI/CD capabilities, boasting an extensive range of ready-to-use integrations that streamline the process of automating mobile security testing in software development cycles.

The ever-increasing prevalence of mobile security threats poses a significant risk to modern businesses. Smartphones and tablets, in particular, have become prime targets for cybercriminals seeking to exploit vulnerabilities and unleash devastating cyberattacks.

Half of organizations have had a security incident involving a phone or tablet, causing data loss, downtime, or other negative consequences, according to the Verizon 2022 Mobile Security Index. Mobile devices pose several security risks for organizations, including malware, social engineering, data leakage, and Wi-Fi interference. Additionally, the emergence of generative AI technology is expected to provide cybercriminals with new opportunities to attack mobile devices.

McAfee’s 2023 Consumer Mobile Threat Report reveals a major security risk for mobile devices: deceptive apps pretending to be genuine.

According to the report, cybercriminals have become more skilled in their tactics of infiltrating app stores. They employ encryption techniques to conceal malicious code from reviewers and strategically introduce delays to ensure that any harmful content remains hidden until after passing security tests. Some apps download additional malicious code after installation, while cybercriminals can infect legitimate apps by putting their code in third-party code libraries.
