Parasoft API Testing Details

Parasoft’s API Integrity solution was built from the ground up to simplify the complex testing that’s vital for secure, reliable, and compliant composite applications. The result:
* Reduced costs by reducing testing costs, reducing technical debt, and exposing defects earlier in the SDLC
* Reduced risks by applying more exhaustive testing techniques, increasing test coverage, and immediately exposing any defects introduced by modifications
* Increased efficiency by leveraging sophisticated automation and enabling artifact reuse
