Playtech deploys the Checkmarx SAST solution in a complex dev environment

Mar 07, 2013 By carolineb

Continuously acquiring new companies, Playtech integrates new and diverse technologies into its platform, developing programs on the scale of millions of lines of code. As a result, Playtech places a lot of emphasis on application security.

The company implements a structured Secure Development Lifecycle (SDL) methodology, whereby software security is taken into consideration in every step of the SDLC – namely –during the requirements, design, implementation, development & QA phases.

We are glad to have Playtech as a customer of our SAST (Static Analysis Security Testing) tool. The security team at Playtech loves Checkmarx because of the flexibility and independence it provides them to do their job. Being a small security team within such a large company, the task of staying up to date with the ever growing code base is a great challenge. Using compilation based SAST tools required achieving a build and compilation errors in the process of achieving a build consumed a lot of precious time of the security team and often required assistance from the R&D team. Read more
