SecurityReview on demand for Tech Mahindra.

Veracode : 30 April, 2008  (Application Story)
Penetration testing using Veracode technology enables Tech Mahindra to provide comprehensive application security services.
Veracode will enter into a strategic partnership with Tech Mahindra, a provider of IT and business solutions to the telecommunications industry.

Tech Mahindra will make use of Veracode's on-demand SecurityReview service to enhance the company's application security offering for both new and existing customers. With SecurityReview, Tech Mahindra aims to broaden its portfolio of application security services by making use of Veracode's patented static binary testing technology and dynamic web scanning analysis to obtain a completely independent and fully automated assessment of the security of its client's software applications. Veracode's SecurityReview service will be embedded into Tech Mahindra's VIGIL application security model which delivers end-to-end application security services from secure development to security testing of applications.

'This is a critical partnership that establishes a mutually beneficial relationship for Veracode and Tech Mahindra," said Matt Moynahan, chief executive officer of Veracode. "Veracode will support Tech Mahindra in its quest to implement innovative security solutions and to help businesses achieve new levels of security, productivity and compliance. Tech Mahindra will also provide us with security testing services for our own customers that require the most sophisticated manual penetration testing to complement Veracode's on-demand application security testing solution. Together, the partnership represents a tremendous opportunity for our organizations to strengthen our position as leaders in the application security space. "

Tech Mahindra's security consulting group, which is using Veracode SecurityReview, offers end-to-end security solutions including security consulting and design, security system integration, security management and operations, and security software development.

As part of the joint go-to-market offerings, Tech Mahindra will certify a number of its consultants so that they can make use of Veracode's software ratings system, which can be used to measure, rate, compare and improve application security levels. While Veracode provides automated static and dynamic security testing to generate a rating for an application, Tech Mahindra will lend its significant industry expertise to provide manual penetration testing as part of the joint offering.

"The security threat landscape is continually changing, putting organizations that do not address application security at risk. Tech Mahindra's application security practice enhances the security levels of our client's applications which were built in the last five or six years when application security threats were minimal. This partnership with Veracode is very strategic, giving us access to a unique, on-demand application security technology, which allows us to further strengthen our application security capability as we expand into new markets," said C P Gurnani, president of international operations, Tech Mahindra. "Security consulting represents a huge opportunity for us as we strive to offer our customers innovative solutions that allow us to increase our market penetration and further enhance existing relationships."
