Build.com Enhances Software Development Lifecycle Security with Veracode
BURLINGTON, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Inc., the leader in cloud-based application security testing, today
announced that Build.com,
an online retailer of home improvement products, has integrated
Veracode's application security testing into its Bamboo and JIRA
software development tools, helping to detect and fix application
vulnerabilities early, reducing the time and cost of remediation.
Prior to implementing Veracode, Build.com (News - Alert) utilized a manual testing
program to detect bugs affecting the functionality of the company's
website. By leveraging the Veracode
platform, Build.com has expanded its testing coverage. Build.com
integrated the Veracode platform with Jira and Bamboo making security
testing more seamless for the Build.com development team.
"This integration into the SDLC made it easier to find vulnerabilities
within software code, remediate them and ultimately reduce the number of
bugs released into production," said William Caput, Information Security
Manager at Build.com.
"Build.com was able to implement Veracode's application security testing
in less than six months - handling the process largely on its own," said
Chris Eng, vice president of research, Veracode. "The ease of this
process speaks not only to Veracode's time-to-value, but also to how
easy it is for developers to get started securing their software."
By integrating the Veracode platform into its software
development lifecycle, Build.com developed and enhanced its quality
assurance and testing processes by identifying and fixing potential
vulnerabilities that may pose a security risk, early in the process.
This is especially important as developers build, test and deploy
applications, as implementing safe coding practices prior to production
increases the security of the company's code base and provides clear
remediation steps for the development team.
