iBeta broadens options for accredited independent biometric testing

iBeta broadens options for accredited independent biometric testing

July 24, 2017 – Biometrics companies may have more options than they realize to improve their technologies and prove their credibility by testing them against established standards. Different standards for biometrics application performance are still evolving, along with the technology and markets for those applications. A standard originally set for Electronic Prescription of Controlled Substances (EPCS) is benefiting a growing number of companies, including ones that do not offer technologies for that particular application, says Gail Audette, quality manager for leading independent testing firm iBeta.

NAB Show 2017

NAB Show 2017

In April iBeta visited the NAB Show 2017 (National Association of Broadcasters) in Las Vegas, NV.  Since we work more and more with streaming and connected media products for our clients, it was a good opportunity to see emerging technologies and to network with potential future clients. There was a big focus on virtual reality and 360 Video, but only time will tell which of these technologies will become a staple in our lives, and which will fade away just like the only briefly hyped Google Glass. We observed a potential shift away from HD to 4K and the inclusion of HDR (high dynamic range) to improve fullness of color, but with the emerging 8K technology, I wonder if 4K will become merely a short-time bridge to 8K.    ...
New Performance Testing Packages

New Performance Testing Packages

iBeta Introduces Three New Performance Scan Packages Cost-Effective Load Testing Solutions to Common Performance Testing Scenarios iBeta Quality Assurance, a leading full-service software quality, security, performance, and biometrics testing lab, announced the release of web-focused load/performance testing packages designed to take the high cost and complexity out of the three most common load testing scenarios. iBeta developed the Performance Scan Packages in response to growing customer demand for focused-scope, fixed-cost load testing. The three Performance Scan Packages are the: QuickScan, web page retrieval at increasing load levels to evaluate scalability, BasicScan, scalability testing plus user registration and login scripting, eCommerceScan, scalability, registration, and login testing plus shopping cart performance under load. Ideal applications for the Performance Scan Packages include: adding a performance verification step to a larger functionality software quality assurance project; as a stand-alone “health check” in the run-up to high load periods such as holidays; as a confirmation of a data center infrastructure upgrade or cloud platform service level change; and any number of other scenarios where validation of performance, rather than the deep observation, diagnostics, and analysis of iBeta’s full, custom load testing services, is needed. All Scan Packages include a free proof-of-concept to verify that iBeta’s technology works within the client’s system architecture, and a comprehensive report of user concurrency, maximum pages served per time, and page retrieval times. And, of course, iBeta still offers its industry-leading custom load/performance testing services for the most rigorous and comprehensive testing requirements.

Techweek NYC 2015

Techweek NYC 2015 gave us the opportunity to meet with multiple companies from all around the world.  We were able to meet face to face with small startups to the big players like Facebook, Google, and Motorola.  As a bonus we also had to chance to meet with a few current clients. “I can’t wait to see what new and innovative companies attend Techweek next year as I know this will be a go-to event for me each year!” said iBeta’s Account Manager Curt Dusing....

Are Your Software Development Practices Threatening Cyber Security?

When it comes to priorities, getting a product out the door often takes precedence over security. And this “need to go-live now” mentality may be negatively affecting a company’s cyber security. Recently, the Department of Homeland Security indicated that “it is estimated that 90 percent of reported security incidents result from exploits against defects in the design or code of software”. What does this mean for most companies? Well, you may be potentially exposing sensitive data and processes to breaches or hackers due to vulnerabilities in your system. Everyone has heard about major breaches at Target and other large corporations. While most companies have the mentality that “it can’t happen to me”, they could experience breaches at nearly any time. Where Cyber Security is Falling Down Companies typically focus a lot on network security, but the real threats are actually happening at the application stack according to a recent report from Cisco. The use and availability of “off-the-shelf” options are exasperating the problem. Open source and even SaaS applications can increase the vulnerabilities a system. Many programmers are no longer writing all of their own code and are borrowing a certain amount of it from other programs or open source platforms. Add to this to the fact that most security testing doesn’t happen until the end of the process – if it even happens at all. This lack of testing is putting more and more personally identifiable information (PII) at risk for being compromised. What Needs to Happen According to the SANS Institute “2015 State of Application Security: Closing the Gap”, the most important way to reduce breaches is...
