Recommended by Customers and Analysts
Veracode is repeatedly recognized as an industry leader in protecting organizations against application risk and cyber threat. In 2023, the company once again solidified its position by being named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing for the 10th consecutive time. Gartner® Peer Insights™ also recognized Veracode as a Customers’ Choice for Application Security Testing for the fourth consecutive year, with a 94 percent “willingness to recommend” -- a distinction based on meeting or exceeding user interest, adoption, and overall experience.
Forrester cited Veracode as a Leader in the 2023 Q3 Forrester Wave™ for Static Application Security Testing, while KuppingerCole Analysts AG named Veracode an Overall Leader in the inaugural Software Supply Chain Security (SSCS) Leadership Compass 2023, which assesses vendors on innovativeness, market position, financial position, and tech ecosystem.
Exciting Product Developments
The meteoric rise of generative AI over the past year has raised the stakes for security practitioners. Veracode Fix, launched in April 2023, introduced to the market an intelligent remediation solution that helps organizations protect the growing attack surface and reduce security debt at scale. The tool provides developers with AI-generated fix recommendations, enabling them to deliver secure software faster, for less effort and cost. CRN Magazine named Veracode Fix one of the 20 Hottest Cybersecurity Products and CSO Online published that it was one of the most interesting products to see at RSA Conference 2023.
To enhance the developer experience even further, the company launched DAST Essentials and the Veracode GitHub App at AWS re:Invent in November 2023. The new features seamlessly integrate security into the software development process and enable easy adoption of application security risk management techniques in developer environments.
Standout Industry Recognition
With multiple awards for both the company and its individuals throughout the year, Veracode epitomized dedication to excellence in the software security space. Industry accolades include the Top 100 Women-led Businesses in Massachusetts, the EWF (Executive Women’s Forum Women) Corporate Award, and the Dev-Insider IT Awards 2023 for Testing Composition and Analysis. In the highly prestigious CyberScoop 50 Awards, Chris Wysopal, Co-founder & Chief Technology Officer, was crowned a “Cybersecurity Visionary” and Brian Roche was recognized for “Industry Leadership,” while Laurie Haley won the EWF “Women of Influence” Awards.
Success is a Team Sport
Veracode strengthened its executive leadership team with two new hires in 2023. Andre Cuenin joined the company as Chief Revenue Officer and Alexandra Gobbi joined as Chief Marketing Officer. Both bring deep expertise in building high-performance teams and driving successful outcomes for customers. The company also established a new Business Intelligence function, led by Pete Ellis, who was promoted to Chief Strategy Officer and leads corporate strategic planning, Program Management & Transformation, Pricing, and M&A.
In a recent interview on the New York Stock Exchange’s “Floor Talk” program, Sam King, CEO of Veracode, underscored the key to Veracode’s success, “I'm privileged to have been at this company for the last 17 years and to see the market and our company evolve over that time period. Cybersecurity is a dynamically changing space and it's fantastic to be at the forefront of that. What I've learned over all those years is, above all else, having a company be successful is a team sport. Our mission from day one has been to secure the world’s software, and that mission manifests itself in the context of a customer. You have got to keep the customer at the center of your thinking because that’s, ultimately, who we're serving.
