Discover the Power of Qyrus’ Device Farm

Throughout the centuries countless examples of our planet’s largest ecosystems and species can be found reduced to turmoil through the alteration of predator and prey relationship due to the catalyst that is natural selection. Is it so naive to say todays technological era is accustomed to rules that may not be so different? The consumer chose movement and reach, and thus laptops rendered towers and workstations near obsolete. The Kindle Fire as a primary reading utensil was dominated by Surface Pros, iPads, and other powerful hybrid devices which have since transitioned into handheld mobile devices with hundreds of gigabytes of memory and multi-core processors capable of running laptop-equivalent functionality.

This continual necessity for simpler and more practical technology has led to an influx of devices running on an array of differing operating systems connecting to multiple browser versions amongst more. The options seem limitless and, often, overwhelming for those who aim to create or maintain applications of any caliber. When considering these challenges in relation to full scale business processes, the requirement of browser, device, and operating system compatibility is essential and may require a device farm.

What is a Device Farm?

Device farms are dedicated hosting locations for a multitude of devices, used for testing application functionality in real-time. But, with industry leading names like Facebook, Instagram, Tinder, and Uber topping the list of companies with the highest percentages of personal data collected, it can be daunting choosing a platform or provider for your entire business’ devices and testing with the confidence that your data is secure. Qyrus’ dedicated, cloud-based device farm utilizes three prominent business fundamentals: power, performance, and privacy to maximize all facets of testing.

Qyrus takes your data security very seriously

Data security is becoming necessary at an alarming rate. As technology becomes more prevalent, the same can be said about cyber-attacks and data theft. Qyrus leverages private instances with each of their clients to allow maximum security through testing processes. That’s to say, regardless of whether you are sharing, or have private devices, your instance of Qyrus and all company-related data hosted, by, or on Qyrus is private to you, and inaccessible by any other Qyrus users. Qyrus also allows clients the option to essentially build their own device farm, providing private devices, instances, and specifications as required for optimal security.

Furthermore, Qyrus is empowered with many security features including single-sign-on options, and security testing features such as web token implementation and testing, alongside certificate-based authentication within API testing to ensure your web apps, mobile apps, and API’s are stable and secure. As a recently certified SOC level II compliant company, Qyrus excels at all five pillars of the certification standard including security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy, standardizing a level of credibility and professionalism throughout client and business interactions.

Maximum coverage is the obvious combatant to ‘technological selection’. Keeping it simple, the more people you can reach the higher your chances of survival, and in this age of endless options, device farms are essential to ensure functionality and user retention effectively on arrays of different browsers, devices, and operating systems. Technology can connect any corner of the world, and instead of fire or the wheel, it is device farms, and the simple, smart, and scalable solution in Qyrus, that stands as evolutionary assistance through unpredictable times.
