Support levels
Without purchase of a designated customer success bundle, the buyer will receive entry-level support to address any issues that relate to service disruption and necessary bug fixes and service restoration. Service levels for entry-level support is detailed at the following address: https://www.veracode.com/resources/datasheets/technical-support. We recommend to all buyers that they include an appropriate Customer Success Bundle, based on licence requirements to meet their likely needs. Scanning software with Veracode is easy. A user can receive results within minutes, and in some cases seconds. Application security though is hard. Helping to instil a secure-by-design culture, that embraces continuous feedback is not easy. Software and technical environments may be complex. We support over 100 languages and frameworks. From time-to-time, the buyer organisation's engineers will most likely need guidance about which configuration is optimal. Developers often need to challenge and be listened to. A tool alone cannot meet the need of development teams to engage in dialogue and receive coaching on best practice. Veracode offers different tiers of service packages to match the number of applications that are being assessed. These cover 'Advanced Technical Support', 'Remediation Coaching' and 'Security Programme Management'.
Support available to third parties
Yes

Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
As Veracode offers a SaaS platform, there is limited setup. Customers can scan their applications through several integrations, including automated pipelines. https://www.veracode.com/integrations

The Veracode Security Programme Manager (SPM) can provide on-boarding assistance. The SPM will schedule an on-boarding call to give the development team a demo of the Veracode platform and make sure that platform accounts are created. An Upload Call is highly encouraged for an application’s first scan. Veracode Security Consultants will provide advice on how to configure and submit binaries for scanning to ensure full coverage and quality. Contact support@veracode.com for scheduling with your availability. Online training and help materials are available to assist on-boarding of users and applications. Onsite training and consultation is available subject to prior agreement.

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Configuration and change management approach
Veracode has a formal change management process in place.

Our change management tools (e.g., code-versioning software and online ticketing system) maintain a record of all changes, including the implementer’s name, approvers’ names, implemented solution, roll-back plans, and any issues arising from the change.

Role-based Access Control is applied to ensure segregation of duties and prevent unauthorized changes.

See also the Veracode SOC 2 report for validation of testing.
Vulnerability management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Vulnerability management approach
All systems within the platform are set up and managed by experts according to industry best practices where hardened configurations are used to limit unnecessary attack vectors. All configuration activity follows a formal process that encompasses documentation, testing and approval. Only authorized personnel are allowed to set up and manage systems. Operating system patches are monitored and applied as necessary to maintain the highest level of security.

Critical and severe patches are handled on a case-by-case basis and resolved as soon as possible.

High-severity patches are patched within 30 days.

Timeframes for patches categorized based on severity
Protective monitoring type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Protective monitoring approach
Operational and security logs are forwarded and consolidated into Veracode’s Splunk instance. Veracode’s 3rd party Managed Security Services Provider (MISP) ingests these files and other files sent directly to them for monitoring. Based on industry standard alert types and Veracode specific monitoring requests the MISP will notify Veracode’s Internal Information Security team of alerts requiring their attention based on severity.
Incident management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example, CSA CCM v3.0 or ISO/IEC 27035:2011 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Incident management approach
Veracode has a dedicated Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT)
Their responsibilities include:

• Tactical cross-functional product teams who assess immediate and emerging threats to Veracode’s Products & Services Systems

• Develops direct tactical response plans (countermeasures) to secure Veracode’s Products & Services Systems

• Provides opportunities for collaboration between Research and Engineering on new and existing security initiatives

• Comprised of Security Champions who are sources of security expertise for their team to embed security more deeply into the SDLC

Social Value

Fighting climate change

Fighting climate change

At Veracode, we aim to be efficient and sustainable in our operations, minimizing our environmental impact wherever possible. Veracode operates in a LEED Gold certified building, the highest standard for green certification for buildings. This LEED certification ensures that we minimize our energy and water consumption, avoid waste, improve indoor air quality, and limit our environmental impact. Our headquarters is also an Energy Star certified campus, meeting the strict energy performance standards set by the EPA.
We are committed to increasing our purchase of recycled and reusable items, and have set goals to audit our waste streams and increase our diversion rates. In addition, we:
• Employ a single stream recycling and composting program in our cafe
• Use completely paperless and digital services for client-facing work
Equal opportunity

Equal opportunity

At Veracode, we believe that diversity of background, thought, and experience is what drives innovation and resilience. We recognize that representation is critical to building a true culture of belonging, and we strive to continuously create a more diverse and inclusive team across every level of our business.

Our passion, strength, and uncompromising commitment to making secure software a competitive advantage for our customers come from the incredible individuals – we call them Veracoders – who make up our team. We value diversity and celebrate our differences, not only because it’s the right thing to do, but also because it’s good for our business.

We’ve made a public pledge to recruit, hire, and advance a more diverse and inclusive workforce. We’re putting that pledge into practice through initiatives including a recruiting collaboration with PowertoFly to reach underrepresented populations of candidates, and joining the MassTLC Tech Compact for Social Justice – a unified effort among tech companies to combat racial inequality and support a more welcoming Massachusetts to black Americans and people of color. Through this compact, our initiatives include providing our employees with education and resources, making charitable donations that progress racial and social justice, removing insensitive/oppressive terminology from our products, and providing our data to support a compilation of aggregated employee demographics.

In addition, although we are proud of the diversity we have at Veracode, and 40 percent of our executive team is female, we’re committed to doing better and improving our gender diversity at all levels. We’re partnering with McKinsey to understand how we compare to other technology companies with respect to women in the workforce, and to explore ways to improve those numbers.
