Veracode Delivers Application Security Solutions Through Partnership in Latin America

Veracode and Digivera Partner to Provide Application Security Reviews

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 4, 2007) - Veracode™, provider of the industry's first automated, on-demand application security solution, today announced a reseller partnership with Digivera, a solutions integrator in Latin America, to provide application security solutions to organizations in Latin America.

Digivera, which serves the financial, manufacturing, retail, healthcare and government industries, will private label Veracode's security review solution under the Digivera DVcode™ on demand application security assessment services. Digivera chose to partner with Veracode after reviewing technologies and solutions in the industry, and found that Veracode provides the most accurate and cost-effective application security analysis that protects organizations from vulnerabilities malicious hackers could exploit.

"Information security is critical for all our customers' organizations today. With attacks increasingly focused on the applications themselves, we are intent on giving our customers the best application security possible, which is why Veracode is so important," said Gilbert Almazan, president and CEO of Digivera. "As enterprises become increasingly conscious about protecting their applications, developing this relationship with Veracode -- a leader in application security -- providing accurate and comprehensive application security testing and remediation advice is critical to our customers. We estimate that automating the testing with Veracode's on-demand solution will shorten the testing time by 60 percent."

The partnership with Veracode gives Digivera access to Veracode's innovative application security technology, which combines patented binary analysis with multiple vulnerability scanning technologies and is offered through one easy-to-use outsourced service. Providing application security reviews using Veracode, Digivera can help its customers identify and remediate the flaws that put their businesses at risk without the need to expose their intellectual property. Organizations that do not have the internal security expertise needed to test and review applications will benefit from Veracode's world-class security expertise.

"Application vulnerabilities pose unique challenges for enterprises and can leave confidential company information open to security threats," said Matt Moynahan, president and CEO of Veracode. "Digivera saw the immediate value in Veracode's on-demand application security solution that automates security testing using multiple vulnerability scanning technologies. This partnership will ultimately benefit Digivera customers in the Latin American market as they become more secure and reduce the risk associated with the applications that run their businesses."
