Tel Aviv, Israel and New York, NY (PRWEB) April 21, 2010
Checkmarx Inc., the leading provider of static application security testing (SAST) solutions, has been included by Dr. Joseph Feiman as one of five "Cool Vendors" in the April 2010 “Cool Vendors in Application Security, 2010” report by Gartner, Inc. on 14 April 2010.
Checkmarx is the first code analysis company that can inspect and summarize application security risk quickly, non-intrusively and with tremendous accuracy. Checkmarx’s patented Virtual Compiler (VC) means developers and security professionals can not only find security vulnerabilities without a compiler, but they can also easily scan code across fragmented organizational structures due to geographic dispersion, outsourcing or open source.
“We are honored to be considered a cool vendor,” said Emmanuel Benzaquen, CEO at Checkmarx. “Secure coding is an essential element of any security program and Checkmarx makes it easy for developers to adopt good coding practices while giving executives unparalleled visibility to discover and remediate application risk.”
