Attackers are always looking for an open door into your software application. If there are software security flaws present, it can be as simple as URL manipulation or broken user access control, to create a vulnerability. And once attackers gain access to your network, it’s only a matter of time before they launch cyberattacks that lead to sensitive data exposure, financial loss and tarnished credibility.
To the untrained ear, a software bug sounds like a real-life creature crawling into your software product to wreak havoc before your exterminator arrives. This sadly isn’t too far from the truth, for software bugs can cause great damage as if they walked on six legs to poison or chew through your software system.
Uncertainty was certainly the theme of 2020. As quickly as the world changed around us, so too were industry demands in upgrading product quality, even when expectations were constantly in flux. With QA projects not slowing down this year, information was key in reaching deadlines, launching to market and driving results.
Your software application can only be as strong as the team that brings it to market. The strength of that team - or lack of - is shown based on the quality delivered to your consumers.
Often, a decrease in software quality is the result of a disconnect between teams, be it through recurring miscommunication or team silos. When software development and QA teams don’t collaborate, it impacts more than the quality of your product - consumer complaints surge as revenue declines.
Expectations from your development cycle never slow down. Your team must deliver deployments faster and produce stronger product quality in order to remain competitive in the market and maintain relevance with consumers. But how can your team succeed when your resources are consistently constrained?
The good news is that your QA team can do more with less. When your team invests in software testing automation tools, you can expect to boost effectiveness, efficiency and test coverage within your testing process.
With 31 billion IoT devices on the market today, it’s safe to say that the Internet of Things isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. From manufacturing and transportation to daily consumer life, IoT devices have integrated so seamlessly within our business and personal lives that it’s hard to imagine life without this technology.
If anything is certain these days, it’s the ever-changing digital landscape of retail. From in-person stores to eCommerce, businesses must offer an omni-channel experience in order to survive in today’s economy. And every consumer touchpoint relies on technology for delivery, be it a seamless frontend user experience online or a secure backend of transaction data to process and approve.
These days, a news story on a cyberattack is as common as the weather report. To defend against these potential attacks, companies have created products and software applications designed to secure their data. But can these security products and applications provide full protection against these threats?
