Checkmarx Named a Leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing

Today marks the much-anticipated release of the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing (AST)*, and we’re thrilled to announce that Checkmarx has been named a Leader for the third consecutive year, based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

Checkmarx continues to advance its leadership position in the AST market and we’re very proud of that.  More and more organizations are incorporating AST into their software development lifecycle, driving rapid market growth that trends alongside the proliferation of software.  According to the report, “Modern application design and the continued adoption of DevSecOps are expanding the scope of the AST market. Security and risk management leaders will need to meet tighter deadlines and test more complex applications by seamlessly integrating and automating AST in the software delivery life cycle.”1

This statement complements both our view of “when software is everywhere, security is everything” and our mission to help companies deliver secure software at scale. Digital transformation is in overdrive and that’s only going to continue. The world is increasingly running on software and that makes the importance of software security undisputable, and the ability to embed security into software essential.

In other words:

Software security is not a ‘nice to have’, it’s a ‘need to have.’

Security excellence must be intrinsic to software development.

Checkmarx is laser-focused on helping our customers move to automated security scanning as part of the DevOps process so they can improve the security and quality of their software without slowing down development. With 14+ years of innovation in AST, we remain committed and intensely passionate about delivering powerful solutions to serve the entire software security market.

As we celebrate being named a Leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing, we’d like to thank our incredible customers, partners and employees who have been, and will continue to be, the cornerstone of our success.
