Veracode Nearly Triples Revenue Growth in 2009

Cloud-Based Application Risk Management Services Platform Leader Secures $12M in Expansion Capital Led by StarVest Partners

BURLINGTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/09/10 -- Veracode Inc., provider of the world's leading cloud-based application risk management services platform, today announced its revenues grew almost 300% from 2008 to 2009 and that it secured new capital for additional expansion in a round led by New York-based StarVest Partners. The unprecedented growth comes at the same time as other company achievements such as surpassing the 100 customer milestone, being the first cloud-based security company to reach the 50 billion lines of code scanned milestone, expanding its executive team and board of directors to include Dr. James Cash, Emeritus James E. Robison Professor of Business Administration at Harvard University Business School , and being recognized as a finalist in SC Magazine's "Best Security Software Development Solution" category.

StarVest, an early investor in NetSuite and other innovative technology businesses, joins current investors, Atlas Venture and .406 Ventures in the expansion funding.

"We couldn't be more impressed or supportive of Veracode's 2009 performance and market opportunity going forward," said Laura Sachar, General Partner at StarVest Partners. "As investors we have a reputation for thorough due diligence. Our research shows that Veracode is well-poised to serve the large and rapidly emerging market for cloud-based application security with the scalability, patented quality and delivery experience that, in our opinion, are unmatched."

Recent headlines, including attacks on US Government sites and Google, continue to illustrate the endemic problem of insecure software. Veracode allows customers to analyze the application they deploy or acquire in its entirety, including 3rd party software, to indentify vulnerabilities and malware that may be exploited. In addition, the Veracode VerAfied seal helps organizations who have scanned and remediated their applications for known vulnerabilities easily demonstrate their commitment to more secure code to their customers and partners.

"Last year Veracode firmly established itself as the market leader in cloud-based application risk management services including static, dynamic and manual application security testing and eLearning certification for software developers," said Matt Moynahan, CEO of Veracode. "New investment from StarVest, Atlas and .406 will allow us to expand sales and marketing efforts and production capacity to meet the growing demand stemming from the increasingly organized attacks on insecure software."
