Parasoft Adds Functionality for Enterprise API Testing

Parasoft, a provider of automated software testing for over 30 years, today announced the 2021.1 release of the Parasoft Continuous Quality Suite of API testing tools for enterprise applications, including Parasoft SOAtest, Virtualize, and CTP. Modern development teams must accelerate delivery without sacrificing quality. This release from Parasoft adds continuous quality to their CI/CD Framework through enhanced requirements traceability and tighter integrations with current DevOps tools. In addition, teams will get a better service virtualization experience.

This release of the Parasoft API testing suite focuses on prioritizing workflows that testers can use to maximize their automated test efficiency. All the API testing tools in the suite use advanced reporting and analytics to deliver on the promise of low-cost and maintainable Test Automation.

"We're looking forward to being part of STAREAST the week of April 26. We'll showcase our latest release, which continues Parasoft's commitment to enabling continuous software delivery with quality at speed," said Mark Lambert, VP of strategic initiatives at Parasoft. "Development teams can optimize their Agile testing strategy by correlating tests with user stories and code changes. Managers get good visibility into how their test coverage maps to their defined requirements and the code itself. Teams get a more accurate view of any gaps in coverage."

Further enhancements include service virtualization capabilities for more accurate traffic mapping when virtual assets are created. Also, cloud plugins expand support for the cloud-based CI/CD systems with new GitHub Actions and Azure DevOps Tasks for working with virtual environments. Teams get broader access to Parasoft's server-based environment management, reporting and analytics, and testing solutions.
