Scale your application security program without adding headcount
Companies getting started with application security often underestimate the effort it takes to manage risk for more than ten applications. Veracode typically sees programs fail for two reasons: Lack of experience in running an application security program, and the inability to hire enough qualified staff to run application security tools at scale. Very few application security managers have run large programs before and have the experience to predict ramp up and adoption. The global shortage of security professionals also makes it difficult to hire enough people to coordinate between development and security teams, often resulting in frustration on both sides and slow adoption.
Organizations using Veracode Security Program Management reduce risk by growing their application coverage by 25% each year, decreasing their time to deployment and demonstrating better scan and remediation metrics.
