gartner-mq-2013Veracode is once again positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant of Gartner, Inc’s 2013 “Application Security Testing Magic Quadrant1”. The quadrant is based on an assessment of a company’s ability to execute and completeness of vision. The detailed report speaks highly of Veracode’s offerings. According to the Gartner report: “Veracode is an established application security testing-as-a- service provider, with historical strength in SAST, but now offers DAST testing-as-a-service as well from a single integrated console. It is a pioneer of the testing as a service business model as well as a pioneer in the testing of native binary application code. It has also been successful in targeting supply chain ecosystem partners to test with its VAST program. Veracode should be considered by organizations looking for a mature static testing-as-a-service provider that also provides dynamic testing capabilities and where third party binaries and libraries are a key element of the application to be tested.” Veracode application security offerings also include the Vendor Application Security Testing (VAST) service and Mobile Application Reputation Service (MARS). According to the Gartner report, Veracode possess an, “innovative mobile application security testing vision and technology with its October 2012 acquisition of Marvin Security.” Combined with the power of the Veracode Platform, these solutions and services help improve the security posture of enterprise software.
