Website Testing: The Elements Involved

Website testing is carried out to assure the web page quality and functioning. It includes so many testing areas and various testing activities to check a website from different angle and perspective.

The ultimate aim of the website testing is to make a website more comfortable to use and easier to navigate. Users can understand the message more clearly with a quality tested website. 

Website Testing includes the following Testing Procedures:

Usability Testing

Database Testing

Testing for Compatibility

This is to test the compatibility of a website on multiple browsers, operating systems, networks, hardware, software, and many other devices. 

Site Performance Testing

To check the smooth working of a website under expected, unexpected conditions, and environment. Here, the site is checked for the stability under different load conditions (if plenty of users visit the site) and thus the response time, and the speed of the website under different load and conditions are calculated. 

Security Testing

This is a very important test, because if the site is not secure, it will exist NO MORE. The site should be checked thoroughly for any loop holes or security breach through which malicious users or hackers can attack and destroy the site.

Data Security and the Protection Measures

Data Security can be defined as the protection of data from unauthorized access and data theft in its entire life cycle. It means securing the data from unofficial modification or destruction by using physical security means, administrative level controls, logical controls, and other ways of safeguards to restrict accessibility.

The Ways of Securing Data Include:

  • Data Encryption: The data will be converted into a code which required a key to unlock it.
  • Masking of Data: The data will be masked and needs authorization to open it. 
  • Data Backup: Making continuous backup of the data, so the data can be recovered if the master copy is lost. 
  • Erasure of Data: This technique is to ensure that the erased data is completely removed and unauthorized people can’t recover it.
  • Cloud Security: Moving the data to cloud securely in order to protect data. 

Why Data Security?

Data Security has got high concern and companies are spending heavily for data security management. A business –even though it is well established- needs and also depends on a vast pool of reliable data to run its business. Upon losing their valuable data, or altering the data by some intruders can cause an enterprise to fail forever.

Data Protection Measures for Enterprises

Implement multiple layers of security. 
Apply logical security like authorization, authentication, encryption and passwords.
Apply physical security like restricted access and locks on server, storage and networking cabinets. 

Type of Data Security Devices


Antivirus Scanning devices

Content Filtering devices

Intrusion Detection devices 

Preventative devices
