A Secure Test Data Solution for Financial Services Companies by admin on Oct 10, 2018

A global payment processing and Point of Sale (POS) technology company serving small, medium and large-scale businesses was looking for a secure and fully automated test data solution for their application testing. The company processes over 79 billion transactions annually for ecommerce and point-of-sale environments in 118 countries.

As a financial services firm, it was essential they fully comply with the new GDPR security regulations affecting any company doing business in the European Union (EU). GDPR ensures data privacy and protection for vendors and consumers and failure to comply can result in heavy penalties of up to 4% of global revenue.

The QA team at this financial services company was looking to replace an inefficient process for test data provisioning with a highly secure, fully automated process. Data preparation was taking approximately 6 hours to complete and was being repeated every 2 weeks. This slowed the pace of testing and hindered the effectiveness of their software quality assurance operation.

GenRocket provided a solution replacing the use of manual and production data with real-time synthetic test data based on data models and using GenRocket’s data generators and receivers to integrate with their test automation framework. This reduced a six-hour data generation process to just a few seconds and allowed the team to move from a manual process to a “zero touch” process.
