Software vendors aim to secure development supply chains

Veracode, the provider of application security testing (AST) solutions, has launched the Veracode Technology Alliance Program (TAP), aiming to make it easier for organisations to implement, manage and scale their software security programmes.

The programme aims to “reduce friction” and speed time-to-market. A dozen providers, including Accurics, Imperva, ServiceNow and ThreadFix, have already joined it and are sharing in-depth access to products, a developer toolkit with APIs, technical validation and co-marketing opportunities. Programme members aim to empower their customers with a structured framework to deliver secure software at scale, modernise their environments with SaaS-based software security and “cost- effectively demonstrate the clear business value of secure coding”, they say.

“Our new TAP programme is an important component of our strategy to extend the power of Veracode through a diverse network of strategic partners, technical alliances and integrations with technology providers across the software supply chain,” said Ian McLeod, chief product officer at Veracode.

“We aim to optimise how adjacent technology providers can leverage the advantages of our solutions to deliver integrated experiences, making it easier for our joint customers to codify security into their development processes and deliver secure software faster,” McLeod said.

Micheal McCollough, global vice president for strategic growth at security vendor Imperva, added: “Modern business applications are more complex than ever and even in the most rigorous software development life cycle (SDLC) the complexity of development means vulnerabilities will be introduced.

“As part of the Veracode Technology Alliance Program we can deliver solutions for customers that protect the software supply chain and secure data from the most sophisticated cyber attacks facing organisations today.”

McCollough was brought in from Akamai last month to scale Imperva's channel business, further develop and grow the Imperva partner ecosystem and create new partnerships.
