Solutions

Parasoft develops automated software quality solutions that prevent and detect risks associated with application failure. Parasoft’s Continuous Testing platform enables several critical processes to eliminate the risk of software failure while accelerating the SDLC:
  • Establishes and manages business expectations that focus on mitigating business risks associated with software failure
  • Automates the detection of defects early—decreasing remediation cost and time
  • Enables the uniform application development testing practices such as: static code analysis, unit testing, code coverage, peer review, runtime error detection, and memory error detection
  • Automates API testing
  • Facilitate end-to-end system testing
  • Provides ubiquitous test environment control with Service Virtualization

Development Testing Platform

Parasoft Development Testing Platform (DTP) eliminates the business risk of faulty software by consistently applying software quality practices throughout the SDLC. Parasoft DTP enables your software quality efforts to shift left, delivering a platform for automated defect prevention and the uniform measurement of risk across project teams. With seamless integration into any SDLC infrastructure system, including open source and third-party testing tools, Parasoft DTP allows you to aggregate disparate data and apply statistical analysis techniques—transforming traditional reporting into a central system of decision. As the risks associated with application failure have broader business impacts, the integrity of the APIs you produce and consume is now more important than ever. Parasoft’s API Testing solution provides centralized visibility and control of services and APIs—ensuring security, reliability, and performance.

API/Integration Testing

As the risks associated with application failure have broader business impacts, the integrity of the APIs you produce and consume is now more important than ever.
