Veracode First Cloud-Based Security Service to Reach 50 Billion Lines of Code Milestone

Industry Leader Offers Free Application Risk Assessment to Fortify Customers and Encourages Direct Comparison of Cloud-Based Services

BURLINGTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/17/09 -- Veracode Inc., provider of the world's leading cloud-based application risk management services platform, today announced that it is the first cloud-based security company to reach the 50 billion lines of code scanned milestone. Through its SecurityReview® cloud-based services platform, Veracode has verified thousands of applications and more than 50 billion of lines of code submitted from all origins including internally developed, open source, outsourced, crowd-sourced and third-party software vendors. Additionally, it has announced it is offering a free application assessment for Fortify source code tool customers and those using their recently announced SaaS binary offering. The offer will allow organizations to compare Veracode's cloud-based software security services, which were designed from the ground up for on-demand delivery and allow Fortify customers to benefit from the high accuracy and simple deployment Veracode customers enjoy.

Veracode's SecurityReview® service which includes static, dynamic, enhanced dynamic and eLearning services along with optional manual penetration testing is the industry's most comprehensive testing solution with all results provided through a single, unified platform. Veracode's unique ability to evaluate the final integrated form of the application (in binary or bytecode form) rather than source code allows customer to independently evaluate 3rd party applications and outsourced code for the first time and compare against internally developed applications.

"Given the complexities of the application security problem, we have believed from inception that executives and development teams would require a combination of true binary analysis with a cloud-based delivery model to effectively manage application risk coming from multiple sources. We were excited to see Fortify finally react to customer demands for cloud based application risk management solutions because it confirms the market shift that we and our customers anticipated and puts another stake in the heart of expensive on premises source tools in the long run," said Matt Moynahan, CEO of Veracode. "Now that Fortify has indicated their future is in the cloud, we encourage customers to compare the quality of results with Veracode."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
