By integrating Veracode, CA wants to help customers bolster the security of their applications by giving developers the tools to build security in from the start as they write their code.
CA Technologies has acquired DevOps security vendor Veracode to help encourage and enable customers to build more secure applications by focusing on security as the applications are being coded instead of as an afterthought.
The $614 million acquisition of Veracode, which was announced by CA on March 6, is aimed at helping customers make their applications more secure through faster, automated, scalable application development and security testing, while at the same time producing fewer defects, according to the companies. Veracode offers web application security, secure development, compliance and related platforms for its customers.
By buying Veracode, CA is bridging its DevOps applications with its deep security portfolio to help kits customers create the most secure applications they can build, Mordecai Rosen, the general manager of CA Technologies' security business, told WindowsITPro in an interview.
