Checkmarx Application Security Platform Enables CISOs to Address Growing Security Challenges
Checkmarx launched the Checkmarx Application Security Platform to help CISOs, AppSec teams and developers meet the growing and dynamic security challenges they face.
With revolutionary capabilities, the platform integrates into any workflow or tool, providing security with the speed, scalability and flexibility to support the latest development requirements. It works seamlessly with all modern development frameworks and infrastructure through webhook integrations, a standard set of APIs, or a command line interface.
Offering one-click analysis of many critical components of application code, the platform provides comprehensive, accurate, and actionable insights to remediate vulnerabilities early in the development lifecycle. One click triggers a full scan to examine source code, third-party open source libraries, API contracts, and Infrastructure as Code (IaC) models. Results are aggregated, verified, and supplemented with expert remediation advice for the benefit of security managers, AppSec teams, and developers.
Through direct integration with Checkmarx Codebashing, the company’s developer training solution, the platform provides on-demand training to enable extensive code security, reduce human error, and enable organizations to integrate security in their processes and technologies as part of the application development lifecycle.
Delivered as software as a service, the AppSec platform tightly integrates security into development while eliminating the overhead of infrastructure management and providing continuous updates and functional improvements. Core services, such as measurement, monitoring, access, and user experience, simplify the administration of all applications, services, and deployments.
In addition, the platform allows third parties to develop using platform and API services with common experience and virtualized services that would otherwise vary from cloud to cloud.
“Software development drives business innovation, serving as a catalyst and differentiator across all industries. However, software is becoming more and more complex, forcing security and development teams to contend with the rapid pace and immense risks it can pose to an organization, ”said Razi Sharir, chief product officer at Checkmarx.
“With the Checkmarx Application Security Platform, we enable secure software development across the enterprise, providing security and AppSec teams with visibility into all aspects of application code. This new integrated solution replaces several complex point products with a single platform that delivers precise and actionable results, allowing developers to code boldly and quickly without sacrificing security.
Committed to bringing security and development together through products and services, Checkmarx is also committed to continuing to contribute to these communities through educational and open source projects such as the KICS IaC Analysis Project.
“Checkmarx is a strong advocate for providing free tools and education to foster secure innovation across the community,” said Sharir. “KICS was just a starting point. We have big announcements early next year as we work towards our goal of contributing to the security and developer communities again. “
Approved by CISOs
Today’s CISOs face significant challenges, including managing a large security perimeter, adhering to evolving global compliance requirements, effectively communicating security progress to the board of directors. administration and risk mitigation of internal and external threats. As the pace of application development increases, application security is also becoming an increased priority.
Using the AppSec platform, Checkmarx enables CISOs and their security teams to stay ahead of application security vulnerabilities, maintaining the deepest visibility into cloud-based components and architectures , such as containers, APIs, IaC, microservices, etc.
The platform has a single dashboard that provides a unified view of all risk information, including that from complex third-party code, reducing resolution time while increasing visibility and productivity. By integrating with all modern development infrastructures, it offers security professionals flexibility while reducing tool fatigue.
Liked by developers
Nearly half (46%) of developers are expected to build and deploy software faster today than before the pandemic. This speed to market translates into a business impact, with the McKinsey Developer Velocity Index finding that companies that have achieved increased speed of development in the top quartile have seen their revenue grow five times faster than those in the top quartile. bottom quartile organizations. To meet these growing demands and deliver exceptional applications, development teams need a solution that seamlessly integrates with their existing workflows.
Checkmarx makes it easy for developers to create secure code from start to finish while speeding up development. Vulnerability detection occurs earlier in the development cycle, with the platform providing expert advice on how to quickly address risks.
Whether through cloud native applications or on-premises deployment, it enables developers to build security into their coding environments from the start, enabling comprehensive risk management throughout development, even after code deployment. . Teams can write code safely and with confidence, delivering significant business benefits to their organizations.
The Checkmarx Application Security Platform includes the SAST, SCA, Codebashing and KICS application security services.
