Parasoft Corporation Key Developments

Parasoft Joins Department of Homeland Security Cyber Security Division Initiative

Parasoft announced during the AppSec Software Security Conference its partnership with the Software Assurance Marketplace (SWAMP), an initiative from the United States Department of Homeland Security's Cyber Security Division.

Parasoft Announces the Latest Release of Service Virtualization Enhanced Support for Managing Complex Database and Mainframe Environments

Parasoft announced that the latest release of its Service Virtualization introduced enhanced support for managing complex database and mainframe environments. Large-scale systems have been traditionally difficult to manage in a test lab. Staged instances, when available, are difficult and time consuming to configure. Moreover, the cost to stage a large system like a mainframe or SAP is significant. Parasoft's Service Virtualization solution creates a simulated test environment by emulating the transactions associated with these large systems. By simulating and configuring at the message layer, organizations are able to test earlier, faster and more completely. Key capabilities introduced in the new release include: simplified creation of SQL-Based Virtual Assets: A redesigned interface simplifies the creation of SQL-based virtual assets--reducing the time and effort involved in defining complex SQL responses. This is especially critical for organizations leveraging complex database or mainframe transactions. Optimized Performance: The virtual asset creation process has been significantly optimized to make it faster and easier for organizations working with large and complex message sets. Redesigned Test Lab Management Interface: The redesigned interface further enhances the speed and ease with which users can understand complex test environments and provision the exact test environment needed to complete a specific task Extended Connectivity and Extensibility: As part of Parasoft's commitment to being the industry's open, integrated Service Virtualization solution, the company continued to expand API to enable more seamless integration into SDLC--for example, organization's preferred tools for DevOps, Continuous Integration, ALM, etc.

Parasoft API Testing Enhances Automation for Mobile API Testing

Parasoft announced that the latest release of its API testing solution introduced enhanced support for testing the RESTful APIs that have become the backbone of mobile transactions. The demand for greater mobile access is driving the shift from XML/SOAP to JSON/REST. In fact, ProgrammableWeb predicts that the number of new JSON APIs will exceed the number of new XML ones at some point this year. Now that RESTful APIs are increasingly the technology of choice for enabling broader business connectivity, enterprises are looking for a proven solution for hardening back-end services to ensure the integrity of critical mobile transactions. The latest release of Parasoft's enterprise-grade API Testing solution focuses on ensuring that rich regression suites for JSON can be more rapidly constructed, continuously executed, and effectively managed. By providing increased control over assertion management and test data management, Parasoft eliminates the need for complex scripting and allows less technical resources to test business-critical transactions. Key capabilities introduced in the new release include: Extended JSON/REST Support: Redesigned interfaces to JSON-specific tools (e.g., JSON Assertor, JSON Data Bank) simplify configuration of JSON message extractions and validations while providing easy customization for specialized testing needs. Load Test Dependency Transfer Automation: Simplifies the configuration of complex load tests on remote machines. This enables teams to more rapidly configure load tests in highly-distributed environments or cloud-based deployments. Enhanced API Penetration Testing and Runtime Error Detection Reporting: Enhanced reporting around API penetration testing and runtime error detection enable development and QA teams to rapidly diagnose and remediate security vulnerabilities and runtime errors. This rapid feedback mechanism is optimal for agile teams committed to eliminating defects earlier in the SDLC. Extended Connectivity and Extensibility: As part of Parasoft's commitment to being the industry's open, automated infrastructure for Continuous Testing, continued to expand API to enable more seamless integration into SDLC--for example, organization's preferred tools for DevOps, Continuous Integration, ALM, etc. More information about Parasoft's API Testing capabilities is available at: Parasoft API Testing Solution Overview; Parasoft API Testing Solution Data Sheet; and Parasoft API Testing Resource Center.
