As the Internet access is becoming pervasive there is an increasing number of mobile applications users. Enterprises are now reaching a diversified number of customers through the use of Web and mobile applications. However, this improvement in the accessibility means to computing resources does not move in same pace with the improvement of security controls to protect data and services offered through Web and mobile applications. This review paper is focused on identification of both practical and theoretical security frameworks for Web and mobile applications in use, with an intent of assessing the capability of the frameworks to assist developers build secure mobile Web applications. A discussion follows the review by highlighting main characteristics of the frameworks with their merits and demerits. The analysis establishes that, available security frameworks are not adequate for the growing convergence of Web and mobile applications, in that there are some security gaps and therefore suggest a need of developing a new security framework for the converged Web and mobile applications.
