Being part of Veracode Verified demonstrates commitment to produce secure software.

March 13, 2020 – Assentis announced that it participates in Veracode Verified, a program that validates a company’s secure software development processes. With approximately 30 percent of all breaches occurring as a result of a vulnerability at the application layer, software purchasers are demanding more insight into the security of the software they are buying. Veracode Verified empowers Assentis to demonstrate its commitment to creating secure software.

When purchasing software, customers and prospects are demanding to understand how secure the software is. As part of Veracode Verified, Assentis can now demonstrate through a seal and provide an attestation letter from an industry leader that the application has undergone security testing as part of the development practice. Additionally, participating in the program ensures that our software meets a high standard of application security, reducing risk for the customer.

Organizations that had their secure development practice validated, and their application accepted into the Standard Tier, have demonstrated that the following security gates have been implemented into their software development practice:

  • Assesses first-party code with static analysis
  • Documents that the application does not allow Very High flaws in first-party code
  • Provides developers with remediation guidance when new flaws are introduced

“Assentis is committed to delivering secure code to help organizations reduce the risk of a major security breach. Companies that invest in secure coding processes and follow our protocol for a mature application security program are able to deliver more confidence to customers who deploy their software,” said Asha May, Veracode.
