Checkmarx Acquires Custodela
November 07, 2018

Checkmarx has acquired Custodela, an Ontario-based provider of software security program development and consulting services focused on DevSecOps.

The acquisition positions Checkmarx to empower CIOs and CISOs in accelerating the maturity of their DevSecOps programs with expert services for software security deployment and automation.

“While enabling organizations to develop software with more efficiency and speed, the DevOps process also dramatically expands risk through software exposure,” said Emmanuel Benzaquen, CEO, Checkmarx. “Custodela’s expertise in software security architecture and software development extends Checkmarx’s reach deeper into the DevSecOps program development and services space. The team’s methodologies will support and contribute towards Checkmarx’s mission to transform software security to help businesses fight software exposure and deliver secure software faster.”

“Implementing automation into DevSecOps processes is a critical challenge for most organizations,” said Ken McDonald, CTO and co-founder, Custodela. “We are excited to join Checkmarx to help advance the automation capabilities in the Software Exposure Platform and deliver premium service offerings to help customers mature their software security programs.”
