“The VERAFIED mark is a validation of what the world’s largest businesses already know about the NSFOCUS ADS.

NSFOCUS submitted the full code base of its ADS for analysis using Veracode’s patented automated static and binary analysis. The code was reviewed in its final compiled version, including libraries and third party components. The exhaustive testing process inspects the applications in a similar method as those who attack systems therefore providing the most accurate and actionable vulnerability detection available. NSFOCUS’ current ADS has received a Level 4 (HIGH) rating per the requirements of the Veracode VERAFIED Security Mark Program indicating that the software has been tested against OWASP Top 10 and SANS Top 25 technical flaws.
"Application security risks can compromise a company's most valuable assets, including its intellectual property and its brand," said Bob Brennan, Chief Executive Officer, Veracode. "NSFOCUS' commitment to achieving high ratings in the Veracode VERAFIED Security Mark Program demonstrates the company's dedication to security and to protecting what is most valuable to its customers."
