Security Testing

Security Testing

Security Testing is a type of software testing that intends to uncover vulnerabilities of the system and determine that its data and resources are protected from possible intruders.

Security testing has become an absolutely critical part of an organization’s development strategy. This is due to the increase in the number of privacy breaches that organizations are facing today. In order to be able to effectively address our client’s security testing needs, CariKture India adopts the latest industry standards and testing methodologies.

CariKture Software’s methods are simple, straight forward and all-encompassing that combine manual ethical hacking activities and the most efficient automation tools available with strong custom scripting capabilities. The result is detailed and transparent vulnerability and risk assessment reports on the system that reveal its actual security posture.

Having critical security flaws being exposed at the regression testing stage provides enough leeway for development teams to analyze and fix them. The advantages are game-changing; The Software is able to withstand attempts to misuse precious system resources or to bring it down altogether, external attackers cannot manipulate the system to behave in undesirable ways and most importantly end users trust the system with their most confidential data.

When these are the goals that security testing strives to achieve, it automatically raises its priority to one of the most important phases in testing and certifying Software.

As enterprises progress toward the usage of internet most of their business transactions are happening online and security problems are becoming even more severe. The consequences of a single infringement in security can spoil an enterprise’s reputation and credibility. Validating the need for security risk, the industry has coalesced around the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), a robust framework for Security/Penetration Testing Services.

CariKture India security testing for cloud application entails to maintain the intended functionality and to protect the information on the system.

CariKture India insists Security Testing has to be a feature that is fully integrated throughout the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and delivery process which ensures detection of errors /faults in the early stage.

CariKture India possesses rich expertise in Security Testing of enterprise applications, catering to diversified business needs. CariKture India has immense experience in serving clients across different industry verticals and organization sizes. Our Web application penetration testing uncovers vulnerabilities in applications and ensures the application risks are minimized. In addition, our code analyzers ensure your software code is benchmarked for increased quality assurance. CariKture India’ key differentiators include:

  • Certified Ethical Hackers
  • Provide hacker’s eye view
  • Finding zero-day vulnerabilities
  • Domain specific/Business logic tests
  • Expertise in intrusive tests (DoS, DDoS, etc…)
  • Manual verification to eliminate false positives

Volume Testing:

Volume testing is a non-functional Performance Testing, where the software is subjected to a huge volume of data. It is also referred as flood testing. Volume testing is done to analyze the system performance by increasing the volume of data in the database.

Volume testing refers to testing a software application with a certain amount of data. This amount can, in generic terms, be the database size or it could also be the size of an interface file that is the subject of volume testing. For example, if you want to volume test your application with a specific database size, you will expand your database to that size and then test the application's performance on it.

Load Testing:

Load testing generally refers to the practice of modeling the expected usage of a software program by simulating multiple users accessing the program concurrently. As such, this testing is most relevant for multi-user systems; often one built using a client/server model, such as web servers.

Load testing is a kind of Performance Testing which determines a system's performance under real-life load conditions. This testing helps determine how the application behaves when multiple users access it simultaneously. This testing usually identifies - The maximum operating capacity of an application.

Stress Testing:

Stress testing is a software testing activity that determines the robustness of software by testing beyond the limits of normal operation. Stress testing is particularly important for "mission critical" software but is used for all types of software. Stress tests commonly put a greater emphasis on robustness, availability, and error handling under a heavy load, than on what would be considered correct behavior under normal circumstances.

Localization Testing:

Localization does not always follow that a perfectly performing project in one country, will naturally convert to another. Localization takes into account several factors including;

  • Compatibility with regional laws, regulations, and standards
  • GUI compliance
  • Native Usability with linguistic and culture
We deliver Usability Testing, Interface Testing, and Functional Testing in language specific ecosystems. Localization directly increases adoption and it is well documented to dramatically increase factors such as downloads and retention.

Configuration Testing:

Configuration testing is the method of testing an application with multiple combinations of software and hardware to find out the optimal configurations that the system can work without any flaws or bugs.

Configuration Testing allows you to test a specified range of environments for purposes such as global distribution, project migration, and cross-platform collaboration.
