As the industry’s preeminent awards program, the annual SC Awards has recognized security’s key contributors and outstanding products for more than a decade.

Individuals, brands and solutions recognized in the program address not only the security challenges prominent today, but also the emerging threat landscape of tomorrow.
“We are honored to have been named a finalist in the SC Awards,” said Matt Moynahan, CEO of Veracode. “Our continued success testifies to the power of our cloud-based business model and patented binary technology for providing application risk management. The recognition in the Best Security Software Development Solution category is especially important because it signifies that the development community is taking an active role in securing the software they create.
