Checkmarx is Named a Leader in the Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing

RAMAT GAN, Israel--()--Checkmarx, today announced that it has been named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing.

The quadrant assesses vendors’ completeness of vision and ability to execute. According to the Gartner report: “By 2019, more than 50% of enterprise DevOps initiatives will have incorporated application security testing (AST) for custom code, an increase from fewer than 10% today."

"Checkmarx has been leading this technological trend by continuously delivering innovative and automated application security solutions under a single platform. We address all SDLC stages from right to left, thus helping enterprises deliver secure software."
