In the past, purchasing a code analysis product required an expenditure exceeding hundreds of thousands of dollars. But Checkmark’s cloud offering gives any company—large or small—the ability to make their code hack proof
TEL AVIV, ISRAEL (PRWEB) March 1, 2010
Checkmarx, the leading provider of code analysis for security, today announced the general availability of a cloud-based security code review service.
This service is available immediately and can be accessed at: http://www.cxcloud.com.
“Companies need to make secure coding a top priority—regardless of size. Code analysis on demand provides an essential path. Rock-solid code is an enterprises’ best bet in a world full of cyber threats focused on application vulnerabilities,” said Joseph Feiman, Gartner vice president.
“In the past, purchasing a code analysis product required an expenditure exceeding hundreds of thousands of dollars. But Checkmark’s cloud offering gives any company—large or small—the ability to make their code hack proof,” explained Checkmarx CEO Emmanuel Benzaquen. “And like our enterprise solution, customers can take advantage of our ability to scan code at any stage of the development life cycle.”
The Checkmarx offering is leveraging the unique ability of the product to scan the source code itself at any stage of the development cycle using its innovative Virtual Compiler. The new on-demand solution covers many programming languages as well as cloud based languages like Apex and Visual Force. Most importantly, the new on-demand service brings the unique ability to scan code fragments even uncompiled or linked, enabling security testing at early stages of the development cycle.
With Checkmarx on Demand customers simply upload code and are provided with scan results once ready—typically within only a few hours. With virtually zero false positives, developers, auditors or security teams only spend time addressing true vulnerabilities.
Today, PCI standard 6.6 gives companies the option to leverage code analysis to meet application security compliance. “A major barrier to compliance has been the high cost of code analysis provided by today’s vendors. The new Checkmarx solution gives the market a vital weapon for reducing the risk of cyber threats while they also meet compliance mandates,” said Maty Siman, Checkmarx CTO. “We encourage any company interested in scanning applications written in main stream languages like Java, Ajax, .NET, Visual Basic, C#, ASP and ANSI C/C++ as well as cloud dialects such as Force.com (Apex and Visual Force) to test drive our service.”
“Checkmarx on-demand fills a major market void to make code analysis simple and inexpensive,” said Enrick Moulin, Application Security Director, at British Telecom services. “Due to tough economic times and a thin supply of security expertise, there is a growing need for security services. BT is proud to be providing this service as a component of its enterprise security offering.”
