Veracode, the application security company, today announced that Veracode’s cloud-based platform for application security has been named to the SD Times 100 list in the “Mobile Testing, Quality Assurance and Security” category. Each year, SD Times 100 recognizes top businesses for their innovation and leadership that sets them apart from the competition in the software development industry.
The rapid pace of technology innovation means companies need to find ways to increase the cadence of software development. To accomplish this, many development teams are standardizing on agile development processes. However, increased development speed can come at the cost of security. According to a study by Ponemon Institute1, 79% of developers say they either have no process or an inefficient ad-hoc process for building security into applications.
Veracode’s cloud-based platform integrates tightly with agile development tool chains and provides actionable guidance to help developers quickly prioritize and remediate vulnerabilities. For optimum accuracy and coverage, the Veracode solution combines multiple assessment techniques in a single central platform with consistent policies, metrics and reporting. These techniques include automated static analysis, dynamic analysis, software composition analysis (SCA) and behavioral analysis for mobile apps, plus manual penetration testing. The single platform also allows development teams to implement a programmatic, policy-based approach that systematically reduces global application-layer risk – across web, mobile and third-party applications. In addition, Veracode offers broad support for the most widely-used languages and frameworks.
“We are pleased to receive this recognition as it validates our simpler and more scalable approach to application security,” Pete Chestna, director of Engineering, Veracode. “With our cloud-based platform, development teams are able to seamlessly integrate security into the agile software development lifecycle so they can rapidly develop web and mobile applications without sacrificing security.”
Veracode delivers the most widely used cloud-based platform for securing web, mobile, legacy and third-party enterprise applications. By identifying critical application-layer threats before cyber-criminals can find and exploit them, Veracode helps enterprises deliver innovation to market faster – without sacrificing security.
Veracode’s powerful cloud-based platform, deep security expertise and programmatic, best practices approach provide enterprises with a simpler and more scalable way to reduce application-layer risk across their global software infrastructures.
Recognized as a Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader since 2010, Veracode secures hundreds of the world’s largest global enterprises, including 3 of the top 4 banks in the Fortune 100 and more than 25 of the world’s top 100 brands. Learn more at www.veracode.com, on the Veracode blog, and on Twitter.
