Galitt has developed Test Suites for servers and networks that grant them the ability to

  • Perform functional tests by implementing the tests defined by the networks or payment systems, 
  • Perform End-to-End tests, also called “Integration tests” or “Level 3 tests”, by acting as “Responders”, verifying compliance of received messages and generating the responses expected by the acceptance systems being tested
