Ultimate in Shift Left Testing

Early testing of user stories by ScopeMaster reduces wasted effort on all software endeavours.  Because it performs hundreds of dynamic tests and in some cases thousands of dynamic tests on each user story, it drives quality early.  It checks for  adherence to 9 quality attributes including consistency, clarity, duplications and even finds missing stories.

  • reduces rework
  • reduces risk
  • improves quality
  • reduces effort
  • improves test coverage

Expect to achieve at least 5% effort reduction on development AND 5% shorter schedules, and an ROI of 10x or better.

Our data security approach takes each of our customers’ security requirements into consideration:

Build Security In

We don’t look at security as a destination to reach — it’s an ongoing journey. We continually strive to improve our software development and internal operational processes with the aim of increasing the security of our software and services.

Architecture

ScopeMaster (including the JIRA app) Cloud security architecture is designed with consideration of a broad range of industry standards and frameworks and in tandem with our internal threat modeling process. It’s designed to balance the need for flexibility with the need for effective controls to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of our customers’ data.

Network

We have strict controls with a focus on the sanctity of the “production” environment

Traditional network security theory separates the world into “inside“ and “outside” and focuses on the control points between the two areas. We maintain strict control between our internal networks and the internet, focussing on the delineation between our “production” and “non-production” environments.

Application

STRIDE is an acronym for a common set of security concerns: Spoofing, Tampering, Reputation, Information Disclosure, Denial of Service, and Elevation of Privilege.  This is the fundamental basis for designing security into our application.

Access to Customer Data

Within our SaaS platform, we treat all customer data as equally sensitive and have implemented stringent controls governing this data.

Support Access

Our support teams will only access customer data when necessary to resolve an open ticket.

Privacy

We appreciate our customers’ concerns about privacy – and we understand that these concerns are probably the same concerns we ourselves have when using SaaS-based applications.

GDPR

As of  3rd April 2019 the Story Analyser for Jira is fully GDPR compliant.  i.e. no personally identifiable data is stored.
