Veracode Recognized as a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers Choice for Application Security Testing

BURLINGTON, Mass. – Oct. 14, 2020 Veracode, the largest global provider of application security testing (AST) solutions[1], today announced it has been named a Customers’ Choice in the October 2020 Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’: Application Security Testing. As of Oct. 14, 2020, on the Gartner Peer Insights website, Veracode has the highest number of Gartner Peer Insights reviews of any vendor in the AppSec Testing market over the past 12 months. Veracode received 110 reviews, with an aggregate score of 4.6 out of 5 stars, and 91 percent of reviewers indicated a ‘willingness to recommend’ Veracode for application security testing. Earlier this year, Veracode was positioned in the Leaders quadrant for the seventh consecutive time in the Gartner Inc. 2020 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing[2].

Veracode serves more than 2,500 customers worldwide across a wide range of industries. The company’s native SaaS solution enables companies to securely move AppSec to the cloud and supports cloud-native applications while empowering developers to fix, not just find, flaws. Between Jan. 1, 2020 and Oct. 5, 2020, Veracode has helped customers fix more than 10.5 million security defects in their software via analysis of more than 7.8 trillion lines of code.

“There is no greater recognition than the voice and passion of our customers,” said Sam King, CEO of Veracode. “We believe this Customers’ Choice distinction by Gartner Peer Insights reflects the impact of our best-in-class solutions and customer service. Veracode is committed to helping our customers navigate the ever-evolving application security landscape, with an impassioned focus on empowering developers to both find and fix code defects early in the development process. Thank you to all the Veracode customers worldwide that have made us their trusted partner in secure software delivery.”

Veracode customers shared the below on their experience using Veracode’s SaaS-based platform as of Oct. 5, 2020:

  • “Trusted partner to help us implement our DevSecOps vision. Our company has revamped our Security Development Lifecycle and Veracode has assisted us with building out our roadmap to deliver static and dynamic scans along with their new composition analysis tool so that we can better manage third party code libraries. We also like that it is a cloud-based offering where we don’t need to deploy on-prem infrastructure." Security architect, Services sector [read full review]
  • “[Veracode] was incredibly easy to implement and we had a high rate of developer adoption. We saw phenomenal results in reducing our security risk within the first six months... There is nothing we need to do to maintain the software. Veracode continues to grow their services and consider the application developer. Their IDE and Pipeline scans enable teams to shift left with their application security... The Veracode team has been very helpful in guiding our team through the changes as we have grown." Director of Application Development, Government sector [read full review]
  • "By engaging with their premium plus technical support and program management, we were able to ramp up scanning within 5 days of contract signature, sustain our program through quarterly program reviews and achieve automated API-based scanning to 96%. Over the last two years, we have surpassed industry standards for policy compliance and scan frequency.” Director, Security and Risk, Manufacturing sector [read full review]
