Mobile Application
Research System

M.A.R.S. is a system for mobile application automatic examination. We can automatically check apps' binaries, network communication, local behaviour, vulnerabilities and further aspects that you may ask for.


Why M.A.R.S.?

There are more than 5 million mobile apps available directly in the Apple App Store and Google Play, and many of them are updated several times per week. There are also plenty of apps in the official app stores which are unlisted for various reasons, including security. You'd be hard-pressed to track changes at this pace by manual observations alone.

We offer a tool that is able to keep up with these frequent updates. M.A.R.S. automatically verifies the security level of selected apps after each update. The examination process kicks off right after you download the app. All discoveries are stored in a database. If you request a special investigation, our analysts can step in and perform extra tasks after the standard examination is done. You are always supplied with recent data valid for each app version.

A few facts

Up to 75% of apps fail basic security tests
Approximately half of the mobile threats are caused by malicious apps
High-risk vulnerabilities exist in 40% of mobile apps on both iOS and Android
More than 65,000 fake apps were discovered on mainstream app stores
Around 24,000 malicious mobile apps are blocked every day

How Does #M.A.R.S. Work?

#M.A.R.S. in a Nutshell

#M.A.R.S. is an automated system for examining new apps and their updated versions available in major app stores (Apple App Store, Google Play). After detecting a new app or an update, the app is downloaded and run through an automatic pipeline that looks for malware, malicious network traffic, vulnerabilities, and other threats. These threats may be packed directly in the app or imposed on the user when actively using the app. In addition to threats, we check the legitimate metadata about the apps, developers' reputation, and privacy issues in linked online services. The standard pipeline is enhanced on a daily basis to deliver the most precise and complex information regarding each particular app. If you ask for special observations, our team can either automate the requested process or perform the extra analysis manually.

#M.A.R.S. as a Managed Service

#M.A.R.S. is available as a managed service. That means we deploy everything for you on our servers. You can choose to utilize only the automatic pipeline results, or you can specify what analysis you need on top of it. The only integration task on your side is to implement an encrypted communication channel between M.A.R.S. and your end-point to exchange results.
