Tolly Certified Product Testing

Tolly has expertise, not only in one or two areas, but virtually every area of Information Technology. Cloud Services, Endpoint Security, Backup and Recovery, Storage, Anti-Virus, Mail Security, Networking, Wireless, VoIP and Virtualization are among the areas in which Tolly works regularly. No scope is too big or small; Tolly clients range from consumer and SMB vendors thru enterprise-focused vendors right on up to carrier-class vendors.

Custom Testing and Comparative Benchmarks

Validation services tailored to what you want to highlight. Unlike other testing/ research houses, our evaluations are built on data gathered hands-on in a lab. Tolly evaluations can be either single product or competitive; evaluating a single product or offering, or multiple offerings spread across several competitors, pitted head-to-head.

Tolly engineers and analysts work with you to develop a test plan specific to your needs, then carry out the evaluation either in our test lab facility in Boca Raton, FL, a customer site, an existing lab at your facility, or any combination thereof.

Tolly can certify specific features and functions, performance, ease-of-use, scalability, resiliency, interoperability, power consumption, TCO and ROI, just to name a few. Findings of these evaluations can be kept confidential, for your internal research needs, or published publicly in a Tolly-branded marketing report.

Tolly comparative evaluations assist you in comparing offerings on a level playing field via the Tolly Fair Testing Charter. This assures that all offerings under tests are held to the same standard, and competing vendors are invited to participate in the evaluation (without identifying the sponsoring vendor), to view the test plan and provide feedback to ensure their product is being tested fairly. Tolly comparative results are renowned in the industry for their transparency and accuracy.

Industry Studies

Only Tolly has the expertise and reputation for independence needed to mount an industry-wide benchmark of an entire technology or class of products. These multi-vendor, multi-product tests are sponsored by an ad-hoc consortium of vendors, which helps develop impartial methodologies. Participants include the market leaders and the most promising startups. Test findings go far beyond mere winners and losers; instead, a definitive assessment is produced- one that delivers critical information and insights, and advances the state of the art.

Quality Assurance or ALPHA/BETA Testing

First releases are like first impressions. Testing before a product goes to market is a critical check to ensure products perform as designed and meet functional specifications- before they ship. But as development cycles and internal lab budgets are tightened, quality assurance often suffers, with potentially embarrassing results. Accurate QA and/or ALPHA/BETA evaluations can be performed in short order, capitalizing on our vast experience with key technologies. Product quality is improved, without slowing time to market. Though all results are automatically confidential and belong to you, results of these evaluations can be publicly leveraged, if desired, to bring your product to market with marketing claims supported by verifiable data.
