Forrester Research, Inc. invited 12 AST solution providers to participate and rated the providers based on 82 specific criteria within their current offerings, strategies, and market presence. The report offers a comprehensive assessment of each vendor for security and risk professionals. In Forrester’s evaluation, Checkmarx received among the highest scores for Customer References, Corporate Strategy and Developer Education and Training.
“Checkmarx’s solution has strong functional capabilities in deployment, concurrent use, scanning automation, configurable rules and scans, target scanning, and multiple user report,” the report noted. “The Checkmarx offering has strong static analysis levels around source code scanning, varied language and framework support, analysis levels, and custom static analysis rules.”1
At a time when applications and their data are increasingly targeted by hackers, application security testing is crucial to eliminate vulnerabilities inadvertently built into the code, since many applications are released before they are properly screened. Checkmarx addresses this by creating SAST software solutions that are respected for their high-quality, proficiency and flexibility across different programming languages, and partners with organizations to provide DAST services to their customers.
“We are thrilled to be named a Leader in Forrester’s report, as we believe it shows that our hard work to create a suite of powerful and accurate application security solutions has paid off,” said Emmanuel Benzaquen, CEO of Checkmarx. “The past year has shown that securing applications is an essential component of a comprehensive cybersecurity policy, and I believe demand for our products will increase in the coming year.”
