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.

Company Overview

Famed security researcher and author Georgia Weidman founded Shevirah in 2015 to commercialize software for penetration test teams to assess mobile security solutions leading to more secure enterprise endpoints: smartphones, tablets, wearables, and the Internet of Things. As hackers shift methods from traditional remote network attacks to social engineering and new endpoint attacks a gap in enterprise testing has emerged. Shevirah closes that gap with software for internal test teams and services for businesses without their own standing team.

In 2012, Weidman recognized that there was a parallel between where mobile security was and where network security was in the early 1990s.

In the early days of network security, Firewalls and Intrusion Detection Systems emerged and enterprises quickly deployed them against hackers. But hackers knew how to evade them through fragmentation, and Christmas Tree Attack. Once the first penetration testing software was available for enterprises to test their own defenses, these hacker techniques were discovered, simulated against network protections, and gaps were discovered. The network security solutions got better and more resilient. Weidman knew that Mobility needed a similar renaissance. She applied for and won a DARPA Cyber Fast Track grant to build what became the Smartphone Pentest Framework, which she released to the open source community.

Her company Bulb Security provided training and support for mobile penetration testing until the formation of Shevirah.

Weidman joined with inventor and entrepreneur Mark Longworth to bring Shevirah’s software and services to market. Longworth is a veteran of the 1990s network security market where he invented the NetWitness network forensics analysis tool, now RSA Security Analytics.
