Ascert expands certification, ATM testing, and end-to-end test capabilities with Ascertified, its cloud-based testing service. 

Ascert continues to expand its testing service offerings via the Ascertified Cloud. “This last year has shown amazing growth in the flexibility of offerings to the financial services industry,” says Mike Wainwright, Ascert’s Director of EMEA Sales.  “A few short years ago, many of the companies we talked to were reticent to use a cloud-based service because of security concerns. The beauty of what we deliver is that it is a highly secure and flexible platform that readily passes companies security reviewsIts flexibility gives us the capability to host thousands of these secure connections, providing on-demand automated testing services.” 

The beginning of the year marked a fast start with an expansion of the range of testing available within the Faster Payments Scheme Accreditation Service running on A total of nine financial technology companies are using the service to certify to the FPS Central Infrastructure.It’s anticipated that usage of this FinTech service will expand in 2018. 

Ascert also marked the year with expanded cloud testing capabilities to assist with PSD2 implementation, API testing, and other types of test certifications. “Our cloud platform enables companies to provide a simple yet effective pre-certification platform where organizations wishing to expand their consumer reach can prepare their systems to interface with the consumer’s personal banking institution,” said Wainwright. The benefit to the financial institution is that it lessens the impact on system resources during this transition period and does so in a fast and cost-efficient manner. 

The company plans to also offer ATM and card level testing services via the Ascertified Cloud in 2018; greatly expanding their customers’ ability to conduct end-to-end testing while achieving rapid scalability and cost savings.
