Veracode announced the acquisition of Longbow Security

Veracode announced the acquisition of Longbow Security, a pioneer in security risk management for cloud-native environments. The acquisition marks the next exciting phase of Veracode, underscoring the company’s commitment to helping organizations effectively manage and reduce application risk across the growing attack surface.

Integrating Longbow into Veracode enables security teams to discover cloud and application assets quickly and easily assess their threat exposure using automated issue investigation and root cause analysis. Longbow provides a centralized view of risk for cloud assets and applications, thereby simplifying complex workflows, enabling faster and more effective remediation, and improving overall security posture. The result is reduced risk and fewer vulnerabilities in applications and cloud infrastructures.

With Longbow, Veracode customers can address these challenges in four ways:

  • Unified visibility of risk across applications, code, and cloud. This gives teams insight to tackle significant issues that matter most to the business.
  • Orchestrated remediation from code to cloud, enabling teams to prioritize and remediate with Veracode’s AI-driven fix capabilities.
  • Actionable insights with ‘Best Next Action’ advice, so customers can conduct a root cause analysis and pinpoint the best path to remediation.
  • Continuous monitoring and assessment via real-time vulnerability discovery across application portfolios and runtime environments, meaning customers know exactly what is running and where.

“This is the perfect fit for Longbow,” said Dayne Myers, Longbow’s Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. “After careful consideration, we believe that our technology and team align seamlessly with Veracode’s vision, making this the best choice for Longbow’s future.”

“We’re thrilled to welcome Longbow to Veracode and expand our platform capabilities with industry-leading application security posture management for today’s enterprise requirements,” closed Sam King, Chief Executive Officer at Veracode. “The integration of our solutions provides organizations with a holistic application risk management platform that spans code to cloud. Veracode combined with Longbow advances the field of application security and enables customers to secure their increasingly complex application landscape more efficiently.”
