Ensuring your software performance, usability, load and security meet expectations
Non-Functional Testing is as equally important as functional testing, although many organizations may not be familiar with the various types of testing. We have a seen a rise in organization awareness regarding non-functional testing, especially around security and performance.
This is a specialized area and getting the right professionals to complete the task is very crucial. We conduct different types of non-functional testing and here are just a few of them:
- Performance Testing – to validate and check that your software performs consistently to meet the stress of internet traffic, user interactions and load.
This ensures that the system responses to user actions in a reasonable time, including peak hours. Performance is a generic term and there are different types of performance testing including speed, spike, load, soak, volume, etc.
- Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity – when human, technical or natural disasters strike, how will you recover and how do you ensure your business continuity? We do comprehensive testing to evaluate how your business can recover in case of such events.
- Operational Readiness – this is less known within smaller organizations but if you are going to launch a system, you will need to know if you are ready for the traffic and user activities as systems may behave differently in production environment. There are a lot of aspects, which might be overseen in development environment like logs, backups, firewalls, database connectivity, external services, scheduled jobs, queues, etc
- Security Testing – with cyber crime on the rise, businesses are now including security testing as one of the important requirements. However, we have noticed a tendency in treating this as one time task and organizations usually struggle to get the right specialists. We conduct different aspects of security testing, starting from common things cookie stealing, cookie poisoning and SQL injection to more complex vulnerabilities like exploiting API, file system, etc
