For the complete report: Cool Vendors in Application Security, 2010

Checkmarx is the first code analysis company that can inspect and summarize application security risk quickly, non-intrusively and with tremendous accuracy.  Checkmarx’s patented Virtual Compiler (VC) means developers and security professionals can not only find security vulnerabilities without a compiler, but they can also easily scan code across fragmented organizational structures due to geographic dispersion, outsourcing, open source and so on.

We are honored to be considered a cool vendor, said Emmanuel Benzaquen, CEO at Checkmarx. Secure coding is an essential element of any security program and Checkmarx makes it easy for developers to adopt good coding practices while giving executives unparalleled visibility to discover and remediate application risk.
