Continued Enhancements of the Core Parasoft Products

Parasoft SOAtest and Virtualize are widely recognized as industry standard tools for enabling teams to quickly solve complex testing challenges. In a continued effort to improve functionality and ease-of-use we have introduced new tools and streamlined workflows to solve everyday challenges that developers and testers face.

In addition, Parasoft Virtualize Community Edition (CE) is now available for developers and testers to start simulating realistic test environments immediately . . . for free. CE enables individual users and small teams to experience core Virtualize features without any upfront costs.
