Checkmarx Asks Developers: “Are You #SecureDevAware?” to Mark National Cyber Security Awareness Month

8 Oct 2015 | By Admin

In honor of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, Checkmarx, a global leader in software application security, today launched http://securedevkit.com to raise awareness for secure development within R&D teams. The campaign provides CISOs/CSOs and software development managers with a kit that includes physical and online tools to promote secure application development within their organizations.

"We've been seeing a rise in hackers successfully exploiting vulnerabilities in web and mobile applications that often exist from the early development stage of the software and remain undetected until it's too late," said Asaph Schulman, VP Marketing at Checkmarx. "We repeatedly hear security managers and CISOs concerned about the secure coding knowledge of their development teams and are looking to provide more training. With the #SecureDevAware campaign, we are providing, free of charge, a kit with a structured program to allow companies to sharpen their developers' security acumen in a fun and interactive way so many of the most common security vulnerabilities can be avoided in the first place."

Secure Development Kit

In anticipation of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, Checkmarx has delivered hundreds of Secure Development Kits to R&D teams. The physical kit includes everything needed to raise awareness within a development organization for application security - and to have some fun at the same time. The kit contains teaser cards, a poster of security tips, stickers, bag pins, Game of Hacks t-shirts as well as instructions for organizing a Game of Hacks Challenge in the workplace. Secure Development Kits can be ordered here: http://securedevkit.com.

Game of Hacks Challenge

Created by Checkmarx, Game of Hacks is an educational solution that helps developers and security experts hone their security skills and educate their peers. During National Cyber Security Month, Checkmarx is encouraging developers to organize a Game of Hacks Challenge in the workplace. The game, which is available for desktop, tablet and mobile, presents the developer with vulnerable pieces of code and challenges them to identify the application layer vulnerability as quickly as possible. Full details on how to organize a Game of Hacks Challenge can be found here.

Tip of the Day

Throughout the month of October, Checkmarx will be providing a daily Application Security (AppSec) tip. The tips all come from global AppSec experts and address Application Security, Mobile Security, Robust Agile (News - Alert) Security, and Awareness and Education for Developers. In addition, followers can submit their own AppSec tips by tweeting them to @Checkmarx with the hashtag #SecureDevAware.

"As we design and use more and more applications that deal with more sensitive data and information than ever before, we need to be fully aware of their security implications. It's easy to just hope for the best when you release an app and pray nobody finds a vulnerability in it," said Schulman. "When it comes to development, Secure Development Awareness can pay off big time in the long run."

About Checkmarx

Code Dx(R) and Checkmarx Partner to Enhance Software Security

12 Aug 2015 | By Admin

Code Dx, Inc., a provider of a robust suite of fast and affordable tools that help software developers and security analysts find, prioritize and visualize software vulnerabilities, today announced its partnership with Checkmarx, a global leader in software application security. Through the partnership, the Code Dx Enterprise Edition now supports Checkmarx's powerful source code analysis solution. By offering this internationally used, automated scanning technology as part of its toolset, Code Dx further enhances the ability for developers and auditors to easily scan mobile and web application code and eliminate software risk.

"Checkmarx's source code analysis solution scans code at its earliest stage in the software development life cycle before it is even compiled. This enables developers to identify and resolve coding flaws when they take less time and money to fix," said Anita D'Amico, Ph.D., CEO for Code Dx. "Checkmarx is a logical addition to the toolset we offer through our Code Dx software vulnerability management system, providing users greater coverage in their application security testing process."

"Our source code analysis solution supports 18 different languages including a wide range of mobile and web languages. Checkmarx and Code Dx together will enable users to combine results from other source code analysis tools to ensure any security weaknesses are identified," said Amit Ashbel, product marketing manager at Checkmarx. "By testing applications early on, organizations are not only able to reduce the costs of fixing problems, but developers are able to take the responsibility of identifying and resolving issues off the security managers and fix problems while they are actually working in the code -- eliminating the need to re-open the code later on during the QA or production phases."

The Code Dx software vulnerability management system runs a suite of pre-configured, fully integrated, multi-language, open-source static code analysis tools against a code base to enable organizations to easily locate and fix potential security vulnerabilities. It also incorporates the results of commercial tools and manual analysis and automatically correlates all findings into a single consolidated result set, viewable from a single user interface -- with reports presented in an easy-to-understand visual display.

Checkmarx Launches Enhanced Mobile Application Security Allowing Developers To Deliver Secure Mobile Apps

4 Aug 2015 | By Admin

Checkmarx, a global leader in software application security, today launched an enhanced solution for increased mobile application security. As the number of existing clients using Checkmarx’s products to scan their mobile application rises rapidly and now exceeds 58%, the company is stepping up its offering to address market demand for an application solution for mobile developers.

“Over 7 billion mobile devices are being used today all around the world and their number is multiplying 5 times faster than human beings,” said Emmanuel Benzaquen, CEO of Checkmarx. “With the huge amounts of private information being transferred worldwide through these devices, the need for strong mobile security has become paramount. Mobile application security is a huge challenge and only robust application code can help organizations provide the users with the security they need, expect and deserve. ”

Checkmarx’s Mobile Application Security allows static code analysis of both native and hybrid applications. Recent enhancements increase the depth of coverage for native mobile applications, and introduce support for the open-source multi-platform development framework PhoneGap. PhoneGap has become one of the most popular ways to create mobile applications, allowing developers to create mobile apps in HTML, CSS and JavaScript which are automatically compiled for Android, iOS, Windows Mobile and more. In addition, Checkmarx confirmed its mobile security offering supports apps created for iOS 9.

Checkmarx allows developers to scan their source code with no need for compilation. Results are delivered directly to the developer clearly pointing out the detected flaws along with detailed instructions how to resolve the vulnerabilities.

These additional enhancements are added to the functionality of Checkmarx CxSAST - a powerful Source Code Analysis (SCA) solution designed for identifying, tracking and fixing technical and logical security flaws from the root: the source code. CxSAST identifies and tracks application layer security vulnerabilities and can be integrated seamlessly into the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), enabling the early detection and mitigation of crucial security flaws in all major programming languages. CxSAST shows where and how to fix the vulnerability with a single click.

“Enhancing our security offering to include the most popular ways to create mobile applications makes it that much easier for developers to ensure that their source code is secure during the development process, ultimately providing greater peace of mind for the consumers using the applications,” continued Benzaquen.

How to Cope with Stagefright

2 Aug 2015 | By Ian Barker

Earlier this week we reported on the Stagefright vulnerability that could affect 95 percent of Android devices. It has arisen as a result of code vulnerabilities which could have been detected and resolved earlier.

Application security company Checkmarx has been looking more deeply into Stagefright and what it means for users and developers.

Stagefright can infect a device by simply downloading an MMS message -- which happens automatically in most cases. Once infected, the hacker has full control over the phone's data. The scary thing is that the Android device just needs to receive an MMS message. The user doesn't have to open it in order to get infected.

First of all there's a temporary workaround to avoid infection. Open the Hangouts app, go to Settings from the hamburger menu, select SMS, choose Hangouts as your default SMS app and uncheck Auto-retrieve MMS. There's usually an option to turn off auto-retrieval of MMS in other messaging apps too, so check your settings.

Amit Ashbel of Checkmarx writing on the company's blog says, "It is clear by now that the Stagefright vulnerability was a result of one or more code vulnerabilities. It is also clear that these could have been detected at an earlier stage of the development and resolved at that stage. What is not yet clear is what the exact vulnerability is, however, that should become clear within the coming days after the full information about the CVEs reported are disclosed".

Checkmarx's CxSAST for Mobile delivers code security analysis for Android, iOS and Windows applications. This helps eliminate code vulnerabilities during the coding process rather than waiting for them to appear at a later stage.

Israels Hot Startup Scene is Fostering Several Unicorns

27 Jul 2015 | By John Rampton

I recently had the privilege to fly from Silicon Valley to what many know as Silicon Wadi (also know as Tel Aviv, Israel). Israel has more that 6,000 startups and attracts more venture capital per person than any other country in the world.

Here are some of the hot startups that I see as having a bright future as well as every one of them having a potential billion dollar valuation (if they don’t already) in the near future.

Checkmarx

Founded in 2006 by Israeli cyber security expert Maty Siman, Checkmarx provides comprehensive solutions for application security testing and application layer attack prevention. Its flagship product is its automated static code analysis--scanning for security deficiencies in source code early in the software development lifecycle where it is most cost-effective to apply fixes. With offices in both Israel and the US, Checkmarx has grown employee headcount to over 150 in the last 12 months, and is experiencing revenue growth greater than 100% in 2015. The company has an industry-leading customer retention rate and currently serves over 700 customers worldwide including Salesforce.com, SAP, Samsung, Coca Cola and the US Army.

We met with Checkmarx just days after they announced a massive $84 million investment from NY-based Insight Venture Partners. That funding will be primarily used to further accelerate growth through product innovation and global expansion.

The Importance of the Side Project

27 Jul 2015 | By Adam Winograd

If you’re in a startup, the idea of pursuing a “side project” may seem like a bit of a joke. The standard ethos from Silicon Valley to Tel Aviv is that if you’re not living, breathing and bleeding your core product, you’re doing something wrong. And besides, who has the time?

But there is a difference between a “side project” as stereotyped by the unrelated passion project stowed away in the desk drawer until it magically becomes your main focus, and the new phenomenon of “side project marketing,” wherein a company’s side project can actually create real and lasting value for your core business, all by creating something of real value for others.

[An] example is Checkmarx, a cyber security company that launched an addictive yet useful mini-game called “Game of Hacks” which tests coders ability to spot vulnerabilities in code, helping them to learn along the way.

The game received massive positive press coverage, had over 35,000 players in the first 24 hours (it’s 80,000 now), and drew thousands of visitors to the Checkmarx website. Many of those visitors were quality leads which have turned into real customers. And now the team is working on productizing an enterprise version of the game.

The 20 Biggest Funding Rounds in European Tech in 2015

23 Jul 2015 | By Neil Murray

The UK and Germany battled it out for the majority of the largest rounds in the first half of 2015, with the UK (8) just edging out Germany (7). Israeli companies took 2 spots, while Sweden, France and Iceland all had one company represented in the 20 largest rounds.

Checkmarx (Israel) raised $84 million.

Why? Checkmarx specializes in software application security and were the beneficiaries of an $84 million investment from Insight Venture Partners in June.

There was originally some confusion as to whether this was actually an investment or an acquisition, but their CEO confirmed to Geektime that although some of the money will be going towards buying a stake in the company, with some of the early investors taking liquidity, most of the money will go into growing the company.
