Veracode Named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing for the Fourth Report in a Row

By Laura Paine

For the fourth consecutive report, Gartner placed Veracode as a Leader in the 2017 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing1.  Gartner chooses leaders for the report based on a company’s completeness of vision and ability to execute in the application security testing (AST) market.

When it comes to leadership, the proof is in the pudding: in 2016, Veracode demonstrated the breadth and depth of its platform as it passed two trillion lines of code scanned, remediated more than 10.5 million flaws and led the charge in DevSecOps. To-date, we’ve helped our customers identify and remediate nearly 30 million flaws to significantly reduce application-layer security risks.

In Gartner Inc.’s 2017 “Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing1”, Dionisio Zumerle and Ayal Tirosh state that, “security testing is growing faster than any other security market, as AST solutions adapt to new development methodologies and increased application complexity. Security and risk management leaders must integrate AST in their application security programs.”

We’re excited that Gartner continues to recognize Veracode as a leader in application security.  Largely due to our powerful combination of automation, process and speed, Veracode’s unified platform seamlessly integrates application security into every stage of the software lifecycle.
