Veracode Opens New Office in Prague with Accion Labs
European Expansion Provides Global Support in Talent-rich Tech Community
PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC – March 21, 2023 –Veracode, a leading global provider of intelligent software security solutions, today announced the official opening of its new engineering facility in Prague, Czech Republic (Prague Engineering Centre). The center has been built in partnership with Accion Labs, a global provider of end-to-end software product engineering services, and will leverage expanded international support to deliver Veracode’s market-leading software security solutions.
As Veracode continues to expand its global footprint, most recently with the acquisition of Crashtest Security’s dynamic analysis solution in Germany and the launch of its European cloud-based instance, the new engineering center of excellence will enable the growth of Veracode’s European Research & Development capabilities. The operation will drive greater velocity of product development and innovation to the market.
Brian Roche, Chief Product Officer at Veracode: “For nearly two decades, Veracode has empowered customers to secure more than 100 trillion lines of code. Today’s opening of our new engineering facility in Prague is a landmark moment for us as we continue our global expansion and support to build on this momentum. We are thrilled to welcome our new highly skilled engineers to the growing Research & Development team, who will increase our innovation capacity and deliver market-differentiating value for customers everywhere.”
Through a single, centralized platform that offers comprehensive visibility of security posture using a comprehensive set of testing solutions, Veracode secures code across languages in open-source, legacy, and cloud-native applications. The Veracode Continuous Software Security Platform automatically finds and fixes vulnerabilities across the software development lifecycle, delivering ease of use, speed, and actionable results for security teams, developers, and Boards.
Tom Collins, Chief Operating Officer at Accion Labs added: “The Prague center accelerates our strategic commitment to the EU, and we are thrilled to be partnering with Veracode and bringing together a best-in-class engineering center.”
The office opening in Prague comes shortly after Veracode’s head office in Burlington, MA, was named a “Top Place to Work in Massachusetts” by the Boston Globe and a “2023 Top Workplaces USA” by Energage.
