viaForensics, a mobile and digital forensics and security firm, offers a free appWatchdog service which tests for potential security flaws in mobile applications. The service was recently highlighted by the New York Times in an article discussing the increasing concerns over mobile phone security.

As the sales and use of smart phones continues to rise, so do the security risks. While malware and malicious software attacks are beginning to pop up, simple flaws in the mobile apps themselves may be putting the users at the most risk. These flaws allow user data, such as user names and passwords, to be stored on the device.

“While I see some risk in rogue apps, the larger concern is perfectly legitimate apps that put consumers’ sensitive data at risk through poor development, testing and security practices, ” say viaForensics’ CIO Andrew Hoog.

viaForensics has focused its efforts on education, awareness and pushing application developers to secure consumers’ sensitive data. Their free appWatchdog service (viaforensics.com/appwatchdog) posts the findings from tests of popular applications. Users can submit requests for specific apps to be tested and additional findings will be posted as they become available.

Additionally, developers can take advantage of viaForensics’ unique testing techniques through the appSecure service. By performing this high level testing, developers are providing an additional level of assurance to their users, thereby building user confidence that the applications are secure.
