OpenVPN Receives Veracode's Highest Possible "A" Security Rating

Leading Open Source VPN Project Demonstrates Security, Enabling Increased Enterprise Adoption

PLEASANTON, CA and BURLINGTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/22/09 -- OpenVPN Technologies Inc., a leading developer of open source VPN software, and Veracode Inc., provider of the world's leading Application Risk Management Platform, today announced that OpenVPN version 2.0.9 has received Veracode's highest possible security rating. This achievement demonstrates that OpenVPN has developed a secure application that has been independently evaluated for software vulnerabilities against industry standards such as the OWASP Top 10 and SANS-CWE Top 25.

"We're thrilled that OpenVPN open source software has earned Veracode's 'A' security rating," said Francis Dinha, Chief Executive Officer, OpenVPN Technologies, Inc. "OpenVPN software is downloaded and deployed by thousands of IT professionals, system integrators, and larger enterprises every month due to its reliability, high-security, and scalability. OpenVPN open source software is the core component of the commercial line of OpenVPN enterprise edition software that is targeted for small businesses, medium sized businesses and large enterprises."

Veracode's recently announced Open Source Ratings Database is a first of its kind, central repository for security insight into enterprise-class open source projects such as OpenVPN. This effort helps spread adoption and usage of open source projects, while enabling enterprises to gain an understanding of the risk/benefit trade-off of integrating open source.

"As enterprises increasingly leverage open source to design, build and manage their business critical software, application security becomes a significant concern," said Matt Moynahan, CEO of Veracode. "Veracode's SecurityReview service and its associated security rating systems ensure that open source project teams are able to quickly and easily find software flaws, vulnerabilities, malicious code and hidden backdoors that end up in deployed application binaries. OpenVPN has demonstrated the security quality of its software which will drive adoption in enterprise and SMB markets."

OpenVPN has rapidly become one of the most popular open source projects in the networking space with over 5 million community members. OpenVPN is a full-featured open source SSL VPN solution that accommodates a wide range of configurations, including remote access, site-to-site VPNs, Wi-Fi security, and enterprise-scale remote access solutions with load-balancing, failover, and fine-grained access-controls. Starting with the fundamental premise that complexity is the enemy of security, OpenVPN offers a cost-effective, lightweight alternative to other VPN technologies that is well-targeted for the SME and enterprise markets.
