Solutions for Software Testing

Accelerate Delivery

  • Agile Testing: Unfortunately, due to historic investment in traditional waterfall driven testing approaches, many organizations endup with a top-heavy, UI-driven ice-cream cone rather than a solid and stable pyramid. Parasoft provides the tools necessary to help organizations modernize their approach to testing, making the pyramid a reality and leading to a scalable testing practice that can be efficiently executed to accelerate delivery of Agile projects
  • Continuous Testing: Continuous Testing is the key to unlocking the bridge between continuous development and continuous delivery, and Parasoft is the only vendor that provides everything one needs to make it a reality

Address Complexities

  • IoT Application and Device Development: The Internet of Things (IoT) has opened up new and insightful ways to connect devices, consumers, and business together in ways never thought possible. Ensuring the success of clients’ IoT projects, however, is tricky. Clients’ applications, services, and devices need to work as expected, work in combination with each other, and work within existing and evolving networking infrastructure. Combining code-level and protocol/message-level testing practices with virtual test environments, Parasoft provides a complete solution to ensure reliable, scalable, and secure IoT initiatives
  • Mobile Testing: Parasoft integrates mobile testing into an enterprise testing strategy, so clients can ensure a seamless user experience across all of the interfaces of an application

Minimize Risks

  • Application Security: Parasoft’s end-to-end testing suite includes static analysis, unit testing, API testing, and service virtualization, the results of which are aggregated in Parasoft’s powerful analytics platform for automated risk dashboards and compliance reports, to support developers, testers, and managers through the secure development lifecycle process in today’s highly-connected IoT, embedded, and enterprise applications
  • Safety-Critical Software Solutions: Parasoft provides a complete software testing solution for safety-critical industries like Aerospace and Defense, Automotive, Industrial Automation / Transportation and Medical Devices
