About the Client
The client is a leader in the cyber security of enterprise email and other cloud office applications. Using the power of Natural Language Understanding (NLU), the platform understands the context of communications and protects people and data from nearly every potential compromise. The client was featured in the 2019 Forbes AI 50 list and named a 2020 Gartner Cool Vendor in Cloud Office Security.
A rapid surge in remote work environments, an increase in cloud adaptability, targeted attacks, malware exploits, and innovative phishing attacks over email or other cloud office applications brought forth new challenges in the post-pandemic world. With cyber security as the aim, the client’s cutting-edge platform needed to respond quickly to any new threat or attack and secure data and systems, making agility and faster time-to-market the critical factors to success. The need to uphold their business reputation of being the best cloud-native security platform required them to test their product suite’s resilience as early in the development process as possible.
The Trigent team thoroughly assessed the application functionalities and business requirements to quickly identify a robust and reliable regression testing strategy that ensured maximum test coverage. Together with the platform stakeholders, the team devised an end-to-end test strategy to test all the email threats and vulnerabilities. After a comprehensive assessment of the latest software testing tools, the team designed a versatile automation testing framework encompassing Protractor, Cucumber, and BDD (Behavior Driven Development) elements and integration with mail systems such as Office 365, G Suite, Exchange. In addition, the test automation framework also supported the ability to execute tests across multiple OS and browsers.

Validation of different types of threats or vulnerabilities and applying the statutory policy actions
Enabling automatic deletion, quarantine, or labeling of emails based on preconfigured policies
