Security testing

Security testing focuses on evaluating a software system’s ability to protect data, maintain confidentiality, and defend against potential threats and vulnerabilities.

This type of testing is typically performed by a team of experienced cybersecurity professionals. For smaller SaaS applications, there’s an alternative – applications like Scanrepeat that perform continuous security audits.

Security testing itself involves identifying security weaknesses and vulnerabilities in the application’s design, implementation, and infrastructure. By evaluating the system’s defenses, security testing helps ensure that sensitive data remains protected and the system remains resilient to security breaches. There are three main types of security testing:

Penetration Testing

Penetration testing, commonly known as “ethical hacking,” involves simulating real-world attacks on the software system to identify potential security vulnerabilities. The goal is to uncover vulnerabilities that could be exploited by attackers, provide insight into the security robustness of the system, and recommend mitigation measures.

Vulnerability Testing

This type of testing is designed to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the software application, network, or infrastructure. It involves performing continuous testing and auditing to verify that the code base is being developed according to the latest security best practices.

Security Configuration Testing

Security configuration testing evaluates the security configurations of the software application, servers, and network infrastructure. The goal is to ensure that the system is securely configured with proper access controls, encryption settings, and other security measures.

Usability testing

Usability testing is another type of non-functional testing that evaluates the usability, intuitiveness, and overall user experience of software products.

Usability testing, a critical element of user-centered interaction design, focuses on evaluating the ease of use and usability of a software product. Conducting usability testing requires a thorough understanding of the application because it involves extensive testing. In essence, usability testing serves as a distinct technique to identify flaws in the end-user interaction of a software product, earning it the alternative term of user experience (UX) testing. There are two types of usability testing that are worth mentioning here:

Cross-browser Testing

Cross-browser testing, as the name suggests, tests an application on different browsers, operating systems, and mobile devices to see how it looks, feels, and performs.

Why do we need cross-browser testing?

The answer is quite simple. Different users use different operating systems, browsers, and mobile devices. The goal of any company developing digital products is to ensure a great user experience regardless of the device.

Exploratory testing

Exploratory testing in software development is a dynamic and unscripted approach to testing that focuses on simultaneous learning, test design, and test execution. Unlike traditional scripted testing where test cases are predefined, exploratory testing encourages testers to actively explore the software application while designing and executing test cases on the fly.

Exploratory testing is particularly valuable for uncovering unexpected behavior, validating assumptions, and providing real-time feedback on software functionality, usability, and overall quality.

Compatibility testing

Compatibility testing is a type of testing that verifies the behavior and performance of software in different environments, such as different Web servers, hardware setups, and network configurations. Its primary goal is to ensure that the software will function correctly across different configurations, databases, browsers, and their respective versions.
