Our customers require us to develop software that is trustworthy and secure. Privacy also demands attention. To ignore the privacy concerns of users is to invite blocked deployments, litigation, negative media coverage, and mistrust. The Quality Engineering (QE) Security team’s goal is to minimize security- and privacy-related defects in design, code, documentation, and to detect and eliminate these defects as early as possible in the software development life cycle (SDLC). Developers who most effectively address security threats and protect privacy earn users’ loyalties and distinguish themselves from their competitors.
In Rackspace's VMware Practice Area, we value the quality of our products very much, and we believe that quality is a team effort. The Quality Engineering (QE) team works with the Development team, Project Management team, Product Engineering team and DevOps team to improve the quality of developed products. Our quality standard has three key pillars: functionality, performance, and security. Our goal is to identify and fix defects as early as possible so that we can deliver secure functional products that perform well for our customers.
