Veracode Announces Web Seminar on How to Secure Third Party Applications

Independent Research Firm and Veracode Founder Examine How to Reduce Business Risk by Securing 3rd Party Applications

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 18, 2007) - Veracode, Inc., provider of the industry's first automated, on-demand application security solution, announced that it will host "Secure Your Business from Third Party Software Vulnerabilities," an interactive webcast featuring Forrester Research. The live webcast will take place on Tuesday, October 2, at 2 pm EDT/11 am PDT. Those interested in attending may sign up at Veracode Events.

The Web seminar will explore how businesses can better manage the risk they are facing during the software procurement process, while outsourcing application development or during an acquisition. Featured speakers will be:

--  Chenxi Wang, PhD, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research and leading
    expert on vulnerability management
--  Chris Wysopal, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, of Veracode and
    author of the book, "The Art of Software Security Testing"
    

While hackers once only defaced web sites, modern attackers are profit-driven, making financial and customer data valuable commodities. Accordingly, applications must be secure enough to protect them. Few organizations, however, possess the security expertise necessary to analyze application security vulnerabilities, placing vital consumer data and personal information at severe risk. The session will educate attendees on the importance of application security testing and remediation when purchasing third party applications or integrating outsourced applications.

The discussion will cover how to:

--  Quantify the risk of third party applications already deployed in the
    enterprise
    
--  Obtain an independent view of software risk during the purchasing
    process
    
--  Raise the security level of applications by incorporating the right
    level of testing and remediation measures
    
--  Use independent industry standards to rate risk related to software
    applications
