Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 12, 2012
SD Elements and Veracode announced a partnership today offering organizations the capability to have securely coded mobile, web, and client applications from the earliest stages of software development.
The partnership will grow from a business arrangement to include two way technical integration with each company’s solution. The Secure Application Lifecycle Management (SALM) needs of organizations are increasingly inherent in their everyday life. Compliance (PCI, HIPAA), secure coding, best practices in the software development lifecycle are continually at the forefront of companies’ mind. This partnership will help our mutual clients create and validate a secure method of eCommerce functions while providing compliance checkmarks.
“Our clients consistently tell us that Veracode is a leader in the verification space, which made them a natural fit for partnership” said Rohit Sethi, VP of Product Development for SD Elements. “Veracode’s unique ability to quantify security quality ties in nicely with SD Elements’ visibility into an application’s preventative controls. Together, our clients can make data-driven decisions on application security while integrating security in every phase of software development with unparalleled scalability.”
“SD Elements recognizes the critical importance of incorporating security as part of application lifecycle management, and its track record for integrating security into the software development process makes the company an attractive partner,” said Ed Jennings, executive vice president of sales and marketing of Veracode. “Our cloud-based delivery model makes it simple for deployment professionals to upload applications to our service for analysis and we can easily support SD Elements’ ability to map security to your software development life cycle by providing organizations with a more comprehensive, on-demand application security testing platform.”
SD Elements and Veracode have mutual clients who have used both solutions to phenomenal success making the partnership even more compelling and exciting for the future of secure software development.
