CA boosts SecDevOps with Veracode buy

0 comments

CA Technologies has acquired Veracode, a leader in securing web, mobile and third-party applications across the software development lifecycle, adding to its growing security and DevOps portfolio.
The combination of CA’s portfolio with Veracode will establish CA Technologies as a leader in the Secure DevOps market through the automation and scaling of application security testing (AST) to develop and deploy applications faster with fewer defects.
By integrating security into the software development lifecycle, CA Veracode will help developers create high-quality, secure code. With Veracode, CA Technologies bridges its Security business with its broad DevOps portfolio and adds to its growing SaaS business. Veracode extends CA’s go-to-market strategy into midsize enterprise customers while CA accelerates Veracode’s global reach into larger enterprise customers.
“Software is at the heart of every company’s digital transformation. Therefore, it’s increasingly important for them to integrate security at the start of their development processes, so they can respond to market opportunities in a secure manner,” says Gary Lawrence, MD of CA Southern Africa. “This acquisition will unify CA’s Security and DevOps portfolios with a SaaS-based platform that seamlessly integrates security into the software development process.
“Looking holistically at our portfolio, now with Veracode , we have accelerated the growth profile of our broad set of solutions. We now expect that the size of our growing solutions within our Enterprise Solutions portfolio will eclipse the more mature part of the Enterprise Solutions portfolio in FY19.”
