El CICENU se asocia con Veracode para soluciones robustas de seguridad de aplicaciones

6 febrero, 2023


Cybersecurity is an increasingly important area for UN Agencies in getting their respective missions delivered. This includes security for DevOps and application development.

Application security (AppSec) is the process of developing, adding, and testing security features within applications to prevent security vulnerabilities against threats such as unauthorized access and modification. Its goal is to improve security practices and find, fix and prevent security issues within applications. AppSec encompasses the entire application lifecycle from requirements analysis, design, implementation, verification to maintenance.

UNICC is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Veracode, a Gartner Magic Quadrant leader in AppSec services. Veracode offers a trusted partnership with UNICC, featuring volume discounts for UNICC Clients and Partner Organizations.

Veracode provides a consolidated platform for AppSec testing including its solutions of Static Analysis, Software Composition Analysis and Dynamic Analysis, as well as advisory support and best practices for AppSec deliverables and eLearning in secure coding for developers.

We are delighted to partner with UNICC and contribute to a programme that really makes a difference to UN agencies across the globe. Our mission is to help secure the world’s software for the benefit of all, and we empower organizations to make security a seamless part of the development process by providing access to industry-leading tools and experience.
