Dedicated Testing Labs

Dedicated Offshore Test Lab

In this technological era, the software development companies have attracted considerable attention towards the offshore testing labs.

Offshore software testing holds two major ways:

First, the overall quality of the product/software application can be improved, when the offshore testing team implements different techniques, testing methodologies and gadgets with their own expertise the level of bugs and errors will be much reduced.

Secondly, there will be a direct monitoring and associated with all the human and production resources to concentrate on the core main testing activities and the customers/clients will be delighted with the error-free product.

If you are an Independent Software Vendor or an Enterprise Business with constant QA needs, or an Enterprise Business, you can benefit from Indium’s Dedicated Offshore Test Lab solution.

Test Automation Development

The objective of automated testing is to simplify as much of the testing effort as possible with a minimum set of scripts. If unit testing consumes a large percentage of a quality assurance (QA) team’s resources, for example, then this process might be a good candidate for automation. Automated testing tools are capable of executing tests, reporting outcomes and comparing results with earlier test runs. Tests carried out with these tools can be run repeatedly, at any time of day.

The method or process being used to implement automation is called a test automation framework. Several frameworks have been implemented over the years by commercial vendors and testing organizations. Automating tests with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) or open source software can be complicated, however, because they almost always require customization. In many organizations, automation is only implemented when it has been determined that the manual testing program is not meeting expectations and it is not possible to bring in more human testers.

Configuration & Compatibility Testing

Many Software applications don’t work well under different software/hardware configurations. Compatibility testing can reduce customer service costs at early stage of software development.

Creating Test Environments based on software product features could be the best way to explore complex compatibility issues.

Compatibility testing plays an important role in making quality products.

Some of the helpful test criteria for compatibility testing are:

  • Testing a software product on a different operating systems
  • Testing a software product on a operating system with and without installing service packs
  • Testing backward compatibility of a software product
  • Testing Web based applications on a different web browsers
  • Testing product compatibility with different types of servers
  • Testing device driver compatibility against different operating systems
  • Testing database driver compatibility
Security and Penetration Testing

Security testing is a process intended to reveal flaws in the security mechanisms of an information system that protect data and maintain functionality as intended. Due to the logical limitations of security testing, passing security testing is not an indication that no flaws exist or that the system adequately satisfies the security requirements.

Typical security requirements may include specific elements of confidentiality, integrity, authentication, availability, authorization and non-repudiation. Actual security requirements tested depend on the security requirements implemented by the system. Security testing as a term has a number of different meanings and can be completed in a number of different ways. As such a Security Taxonomy helps us to understand these different approaches and meanings by providing a base level to work from.

A penetration test, or sometimes pentest, is a software attack on a computer system that looks for security weaknesses, potentially gaining access to the computer’s features and data.

The process typically identifies the target systems and a particular goal—then reviews available information and undertakes various means to attain the goal. A penetration test target may be a white box (which provides background and system information) or black box (which provides only basic or no information except the company name). A penetration test can help determine whether a system is vulnerable to attack, if the defenses were sufficient, and which defenses (if any) the test defeated.

Security issues that the penetration test uncovers should be reported to the system owner. Penetration test reports may also assess potential impacts to the organization and suggest countermeasures to reduce risk.

Penetration tests are valuable because they:

  • Determine feasibility of a particular set of attack vectors
  • Identify high-risk vulnerabilities from a combination of lower-risk vulnerabilities exploited in a particular sequence
  • Identify vulnerabilities that may be difficult or impossible to detect with automated network or application vulnerability scanning software
  • Assess the magnitude of potential business and operational impacts of successful attacks
  • Test the ability of network defenders to detect and respond to attacks
  • Provide evidence to support increased investments in security personnel and technology
  • Penetration tests are a component of a full security audit. For example, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard requires penetration testing on a regular schedule, and after system changes.
