Mobile applications have garnered massive popularity over the past few years. What’s more interesting is that while companies continue to increasingly build mobile apps, they are not matching their security budget to match the increasing number of mobile apps and increasing complexity of these apps. This means attackers regularly target mobile apps to exploit vulnerabilities and target end-users or organizations.
