Sep 26, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Veracode, a company focusing on cloud-based application security testing, welcomed veteran technology journalist Paul Roberts as a regular contributor to the company's application security blog.

With more than a decade of experience covering security, Veracode said Roberts' commentary and analysis on application security will be featured weekly on Veracode's Blog, which includes posts on the latest research, news, trends and events in the IT security industry.

According to a release, Roberts most recently served as editor of Threatpost.com and as a security evangelist for Threatpost's corporate parent, Kaspersky Lab. He brings 18 years of experience in the technology industry to Veracode's blogging team, including a decade of experience covering the IT security space as a reporter and industry analyst at The 451 Group. Roberts has written about security topics ranging from malware to hacktivism, threats to critical infrastructure and mobile security.

"We're excited to bring someone of Paul's caliber to the Veracode blog," said Chris Wysopal, CISO, CTO and cofounder of Veracode. "Paul is well respected in the security community and we look forward to his in-depth analysis and coverage of the application security world." Veracode said Roberts began his reporting career as a U.S. Correspondent for the IDG News Service, and has spent the last decade covering hacking, cyber threats and information technology security in senior positions as a writer, editor and industry analyst. His work has appeared in The Boston Globe, Salon.com, Fortune Small Business, as well as ZDNet, Computerworld, InfoWorld, eWeek, CIO, CSO and ITWorld.com.
