About Veracode Greenlight

Veracode Greenlight

Veracode Greenlight finds security defects in your code in seconds so you can fix the findings directly in your IDE. Instant detection discovers issues early and reduces costs. Veracode Greenlight scans files or small packages and delivers results back quickly, enabling developers to test software quickly and frequently, and find security-related defects when they are the easiest and cheapest to fix, during development. In addition to highlighting defects, Veracode Greenlight provides positive feedback to developers, listing coding best practices when developers effectively avoid introducing security defects.

In addition to using Veracode Greenlight, Veracode recommends that you perform a full static analysis scan using the Veracode Platform or the Veracode plugin for your IDE to achieve comprehensive coverage, actionable results, and policy-level reporting to determine application production readiness.
