Checkmarx Achieves AWS Security Competency Status
October 02, 2019

Checkmarx earned Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security Competency status for its Software Security Platform.

This recognizes that Checkmarx has demonstrated proven technology and deep expertise to help organizations achieve their application security testing (AST) goals on AWS. Checkmarx is the first AST software vendor to receive the designation.

Achieving AWS Security Competency differentiates Checkmarx as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that delivers specialized software designed to help today’s organizations adopt, develop and deploy complex security projects on AWS. APN Partners must demonstrate deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.

“While the proliferation of software in today’s world has obvious benefits, it also presents a diverse set of security challenges for organizations to navigate. The speed at which businesses are developing and releasing software increases the number of vulnerabilities inherent in most applications, creating risk for themselves and their customers,” said Yair Rovek, VP, Managed & Cloud Services, Checkmarx. “Checkmarx is dedicated to instilling application security testing best practices into the modern software development process, and achieving AWS Security Competency status further validates our ability to deliver software security in a cloud environment. This is yet another step in our broader cloud strategy as we deliver a best-in-class experience for our customers, whether they choose to deploy on-premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment.”

The Checkmarx Software Security Platform tightly integrates static application security testing (SAST), software composition analysis (SCA), and interactive application security testing (IAST) solutions, as well as developer application security awareness and training. Unified via a management and orchestration layer, the solution addresses vulnerabilities found throughout the entire software development lifecycle to empower a true DevSecOps model.

Checkmarx offers a broad range of managed services for organizations adopting cloud-first AST strategies on AWS, including:

- Checkmarx Private Hosting Services: Host Checkmarx’s market-leading AST solutions within the Amazon secure Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). Checkmarx experts maintain the infrastructure and operations that support organizations’ software security initiatives to reduce the burden on internal technical teams and increase security and reliability.

- Checkmarx AppSec Accelerator: Organizations can leverage Checkmarx’s managed software security testing service to have experts review their code and analyze applications, coupled with automating the results back into the CI/CD pipeline.

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify consulting and technology APN partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
