BURLINGTON, Mass. – March 20, 2018 – Veracode, Inc., a leader in securing the world’s software, and acquired by CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA), today announced it has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant for the fifth consecutive time of Gartner Inc.’s 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing1 .” In our view, CA Technologies (Veracode)’s position in the Leaders quadrant is a result of the company’s completeness of vision and ability to execute in the application security testing (AST) market.
In Gartner Inc.’s 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing1,” Ayal Tirosh, Dionisio Zumerle, and Mark Horvath state that, “Through 2021, the AST market is projected to have a 14% compound annual growth rate (CAGR). This continues to be the fastest growing of all tracked information security segments. The overall global information security market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 7.6% through 2021. The AST market size is estimated to reach $775 million by the end of 2018.1”
“Competing in today’s application economy requires a Modern Software Factory approach that gives companies a competitive edge by embedding security directly into the software development process. Security becomes the differentiator when developers are empowered to create secure code – free from the defects that cybercriminals use to breach company data,” said Sam King, general manager, CA Veracode. “We believe that Gartner’s ongoing recognition is testament to our commitment to empowering both security professionals and developers with the tools, training and consultative support that make software development processes like DevSecOps possible and enable the Modern Software Factory approach.”
