Veracode, a leader in protecting enterprises from today’s pervasive web and mobile application threats, today announced that it has been positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant of Gartner Inc.’s 2015 “Application Security Testing Magic Quadrant1” for the third consecutive year, based on the company’s completeness of vision and ability to execute in the application security testing (AST) market.

Highly publicised breaches in the past 12 months have raised awareness of the need to identify and remediate vulnerabilities at the application layer. Enterprise application security testing solutions for web, cloud and mobile applications are key to this strategy.

Veracode’s automated cloud-based service safeguards web, mobile and cloud applications for more than 800 organisations worldwide, including three of the top four banks in the Fortune 100 and more than 25 of the world’s top 100 brands. The company is widely recognised for its demonstrated innovation, strong reputation for service quality, and broad set of automated services delivered on a single scalable platform.

“Software has eaten the world. Every enterprise is becoming a software company, regardless of what business they’re in — and it’s no longer feasible to hire an army of specialised experts to secure your global software infrastructure,” said Bob Brennan, Veracode CEO. “Our mission is to secure the world’s software. We view our ongoing recognition by Gartner as further validation that our cloud-based approach and world-class expertise are successfully reducing application-layer risk for the world’s largest organisations, across in-house, outsourced, commercial and open source applications.”
