On being nominated for this award, Matt comments: "This is really a tribute to the Veracode team and all of the success we've experienced over the past year. We founded Veracode on the belief that we could solve many of the security challenges facing the software industry in a fundamentally different and more effective way. Ernst and Young's recognition of that work truly validates all of the company's efforts."
