BURLINGTON, Mass., July 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As America's attention turns to Independence Day, backyard cookouts and fireworks displays, Veracode, Inc., the leader in application security services, has a different kind of fireworks in mind – explosive ramifications organizations face from security breaches.
"Security breaches happen every day to organizations across the country and throughout the world," said Chris Wysopal, Co-Founder and CTO of Veracode. "Making sure the most robust security measures are in place is the best way to protect your organization's information, intellectual property and brand."
Recent research from Veracode shows that 84 percent of web applications from American public companies are at risk of being hacked, despite more stringent compliance requirements set by the SEC. Because hackers don't take holidays, Veracode offers a range of application security services designed to keep organizations safe 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Veracode's application security services include:
- Via a cloud-based platform, Veracode helps organizations reduce risk from insecure software while improving their security posture and operational effectiveness and helping them achieve compliance objectives with regulations and organizations such PCI, FISMA, HIPAA and the SEC.
