“While sectors like BFSI and E-commerce that conduct a large part of their business over mobile and web are already taking proactive measures to protect their data transactions, others that are becoming more mobile-enabled also need to focus more on mobile app security,” suggests the study.

The Indusface Research Team conducted an in-depth testing around the Top 10 mobile vulnerabilities listed by OWASP and found that 23% of mobile apps suffered from insecure data storage vulnerability, 17% of mobile apps were suffering from unintended data leakage vulnerability and 10% suffered from weak server side controls.

The team tested more than 100 mobile applications across a set of Indian companies and detected 21K vulnerabilities. This shows that enterprise mobile apps are extremely vulnerable to data leaks, stated the report.
