Veracode, Digital Defense Integrate Offerings

Integration will enable clients of DDI’s Vulnerability Lifecycle Management solutions to see if and where application flaws, revealed from Veracode Static analysis, are located
San Antonio, TX – June 7, 2012 – Digital Defense, Inc. (DDI), a leading provider of managed cloud-based security assessment solutions, and Veracode, Inc.., provider of the world’s only independent cloud-based application risk management platform, announced the completion of integration between their respective cloud-based platforms enabling the delivery of new breakthrough Security Risk Assessment solutions. DDI and Veracode will preview the offering at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit June 11th – 14th.

The integration of Veracode’s offering into DDI’s Frontline™ Solutions Platform will enable clients of DDI’s Vulnerability Lifecycle Management solutions to clearly see if and where application flaws, revealed from Veracode Static analysis, are located in assets deployed in their computing networks. The ability to quickly determine if flaws introduced during the Software Development Life Cycle of an application have made it into a Production network will greatly improve the efficacy of organizations’ security risk reduction efforts.

Lawrence Pingree, Gartner Security Analyst, states “Today, organizations are challenged with not only providing rapid response to vulnerabilities exposed in the enterprise environment, but also within their critical software development lifecycle processes. Combining these two capabilities enables organizations to appropriately measure and respond to vulnerabilities in a methodical way.”

“We’re truly excited to see DDI take the Veracode platform’s binary analysis capability and couple it with their resident vulnerability management proficiency to create a service offering that is unique in the industry,” adds Chris Wysopal, Veracode Co-Founder, CTO and Chief Information Security Officer. “The integration of our cloud-based platforms will present organizations with effective ways of revealing risk factors in their networks and provide solutions on how best to remediate them in an efficient manner.”

The union provides synergy for both organizations:

DDI solutions complement Veracode’s offerings by providing an infrastructure map which allows insight into where application flaws, which could introduce potential vulnerabilities, reside on external and internal hosts. Veracode solutions complement DDI’s offerings with vulnerability analysis for Software applications, as well as deeper analysis of web-based applications. Clients can comprehensively manage host vulnerabilities and reconcile results over time, adding tremendous efficiencies, both financial and in labor resources.

DDI Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Gordon MacKay comments, “We believe the combination of Veracode and DDI technology and expertise will bring information security to the next level. Companies, now more than ever, know that it is not enough to just be compliant. Combining our complementary offerings will result in a robust solution that will allow organizations to gain a true understanding of their security posture and how best to manage risk out of their operations.”
