The company’s system scans software source-code, quickly identifying security vulnerabilities and regulatory compliance issues, and immediately shows developers and security auditors where and how to fix them.

In the report, Gartner positions Checkmarx close second to HP for the “Testing Source Code, Bytecode or Binaries” Use Case. This particular use case “evaluates the vendors to discover vulnerabilities in an application’s source code, bytecode or binary files using SAST solutions, product or service.” 1 The report states that “Checkmarx offers one of the strongest enterprise SAST technologies, which tests a broad variety of programming languages and is well-integrated into the software life cycle (SLC).” 1

Even though Checkmarx is a pure SAST provider, its solution received the third-highest score given for the “Enterprise AST Using its Own Tools” Use Case, where an “enterprise wants a comprehensive solution for DAST, SAST, and mobile AST” 1, but performs the testing with its own tools on premise. Checkmarx offers enterprises the flexibility of implementing its SAST technology either on premise, on demand (private or public cloud), or as a hybrid of both.

“Knowing that we are among the top ranks of the application security testing market reaffirms our aspiration to disrupt the application security space with our advanced technology, ” said Emmanuel Benzaquen, CEO of Checkmarx. “In the past few years we have expanded our operations both in terms of our size and the sophistication of our solutions, and our commitment to creating better and more innovative application testing solutions only grows stronger.”

Checkmarx’s customers include 4 of the world’s top 10 software vendors and many Fortune 500 and government organizations, including Samsung, Salesforce and the US Army.
