Any time a feature is added or improved, an application’s code is in danger. There’s no escaping it, unfortunately: Any time a developer touches an existing piece of code, s/he introduces the possibility of breakage and new defects. This is especially true, and most common, in the areas where new code meets old.
The world of data security is changing rapidly - so rapidly that it can be hard to keep track of all the authentication methods that see wide usage and adoption from product companies. Currently, there are three main categories for security solutions. First, what we know: Your standard alphanumeric passwords and security questions. Second, what we carry: Hand-held items like key cards and ID badges. And third, what we are: Unique bodily identifiers that are nearly impossible to replicate.
We’re all familiar with choosing super-strong passwords and clipping an ID badge on our belt loop before leaving the house. But in general, biometric authentication is still a relatively new category in the security space.
Ideally, your collaboration product delivers efficiency, productivity, and flexibility to its users. By integrating relevant third-party applications, such as single sign-on capability, social media sharing features, customer relationship management, and document editors, you can add considerable value to your product and greatly improve the user’s experience. Thorough QA services ensure that your integrations work as expected and do not affect the existing functionalities of your product.
