Accion Labs, a global provider of end-to-end software product engineering services and consultancy, and Veracode, a leading global provider of application security testing solutions, today announced a partnership to build Veracode’s new engineering facility in Europe. As a result of the collaboration, Veracode will extend its ability to deliver high-quality, next-generation security solutions by leveraging expanded global support in the talent-rich tech community in Prague, Czech Republic.
As Veracode’s international operations continue to grow, most recently with the launch of its European cloud-based instance, the new engineering center of excellence will enable growth and expansion of its European Research & Development capabilities. The operation will also drive greater efficiency and velocity of product development and innovation.
“After an in-depth evaluation, we have selected Prague to expand our engineering footprint and global presence” said Brian Roche, Veracode’s Chief Product Officer. “We will accelerate our continued growth as a global leader in the application security market by accessing the highly skilled engineering talent in the Czech Republic. As we add to our existing teams in the US, we look forward to increasing our innovation capacity and delivering market-differentiating value that benefits our customers. We are excited to bolster our ongoing global expansion in Europe with a strategic presence in Prague and we look forward to welcoming our new team members to our culture of innovation and customer obsession.”
Satyajit Bandyopadhyay, Chief Customer Officer at Accion, commented, “We’re forging this relationship with Veracode, an iconic application security company, to play a larger part in the worldwide revolution governing the design and deployment of advanced security services. This relationship combines our high-quality engineering talent with Veracode’s reputation and vision for delivering innovation that will address challenges and opportunities in today’s digital economy.”
