Dagah: Mobile Penetration Testing Software

Penetration Testing is a key part of any corporate security plan, but are you testing the system that the majority of employees are using to access corporate systems: Mobile?

Shevirah is the only technology that can measure the whole security posture of an enterprise’s mobility program: the users, the device, the applications, and the infrastructure.

Dagah Product Information

Given only a phone number, Shevirah can phish mobile users via SMS, QR Codes, NFC or send client-side attacks to simulate how hackers would exploit users

Given the installation of a simulated malicious application, Shevirah measures the potential impact of malicious applications on users’ devices and corporate management settings

Simulated phishing attacks can gather basic information, user credentials, or attempt to side-load a simulated malicious application

Works against Android and iOS smartphones and devices

Available now in Community and Professional versions.  Enterprise version coming soon.
