Veracode Announces Acquisition of Longbow Security

Veracode, a leading provider in the cybersecurity space, has officially announced its acquisition of Longbow Security.

This strategic move is poised to revolutionize how organizations manage and mitigate risks in multi-cloud environments, offering a unified solution to the complex challenges of today’s digital landscape.

The digital era has ushered in rapid innovation and transformation across industries, compelling organizations to adopt DevOps methodologies and leverage open-source technologies.

However, this shift towards accelerated deployment across multi-cloud environments has introduced many security challenges.

Security teams are often inundated with alerts from numerous tools, each providing a fragmented view of the risks.

This alert fatigue, coupled with the cognitive overload experienced by engineering teams, underscores the urgent need for a comprehensive solution that offers a singular view of risk.

In today’s fast-paced digital environment, 71 percent of organizations are grappling with security debt—flaws in applications that remain unaddressed for over a year.

The Veracode-Longbow integration offers a robust solution to this pervasive issue, enabling teams to rationalize security risk across their tools and prioritize remediation at scale.
