Checkmarx builds on AWS Security Competency status with acceptance into AWS Public Sector Partner Program, expanding cloud services offerings for government and education organizations
New York – December 17, 2019 – Checkmarx, a global leader in software security solutions for DevOps, today announced that it has been accepted into the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Public Sector Partner Program. With this, Checkmarx is now an authorized provider of application security testing (AST) solutions via AWS’ cloud-based infrastructure to public sector organizations. Notably, this follows Checkmarx recently earning AWS Security Competency status, making it the first AST software vendor to hold both designations.
From small school districts to federal, state, and local government agencies, public sector organizations are increasingly migrating to cloud environments to improve scalability, reduce operational costs, and push software into production more quickly and securely. Acceptance into the AWS Public Sector Partner Program signifies Checkmarx’s proficiency in supporting these efforts through the company’s in-house technical expertise and AST solution suite.
As an AWS Public Sector Partner, organizations in the public sector community can leverage the Checkmarx Software Security Platform to perform AST in the secure confines of a dedicated AWS hosted environment, while also solidifying their CI/CD pipelines and shifting their software development workloads to the cloud. Offered through a broad range of deployment options including customers’ dedicated AWS cloud instance, Checkmarx managed services such as Private Hosting Services and AppSec Accelerator™, or on-premises, Checkmarx’s AST solutions are flexible, scalable, and customizable to meet each organization’s specific use case.
“As Checkmarx continues to rapidly expand its public sector footprint, we’re dedicated to empowering these organizations’ software security and DevSecOps efforts across any environment – whether that be on-premises or in the cloud,” said Rich Wajsgras, Vice President of U.S. Public Sector, Checkmarx. “Previously receiving AWS Security Competency status and now being recognized as an AWS Public Sector Partner is a testament to our relationship and partnership with AWS, as well as our commitment to helping public sector organizations bring application security and a modern software development lifecycle into the cloud.”
The Checkmarx Software Security Platform is an all-in-one, powerful resource, capable of transforming organizations’ secure application development processes. Combining static application security testing (SAST), interactive application security testing (IAST), software composition analysis (SCA), and developer application security awareness and training, the platform extends beyond traditional security testing to help organizations better manage software security across the entire SDLC at the speed of DevOps.
Being recognized as an AWS Public Sector Partner further strengthens Checkmarx’s public sector presence following multiple noteworthy customer wins. For more information about Checkmarx’s public sector agency solutions and its Software Security Platform, visit here and here, respectively.
