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

Security Gate

Quickly improve the security standards
of your deliveries.


The Security Gate Infrastructure

Checkmarx’s Security Gate implementation allows organizations of any size to use Static Application Security Testing at any stage of the development lifecycle. With the CxSAST Security Gate, organizations introducing application security practices can quickly improve the security standards of their deliveries.

Integrating Security into the SDLC

Design, development and quality assurance all lead to a single goal which is the release and delivery of the application to the target audience. While all these are usually clearly defined and scheduled, application security testing has to become an integral piece of the release cycle and no application should be released without validating that the application's code and functionality do not expose the organization to unnecessary risks.

Single Point Check

With Checkmarx Security Gate, organizations can run a security validation checkpoint at any point in the process to ensure the delivered application does not leave the organization exposed to attacks such as SQL Injections, XSS (Cross Site Scripting), CSRF (Cross Site Request Forgery), privacy violations and hundreds of other vulnerabilities.

Results, which include the categorization of vulnerabilities by severity, are reported directly to the responsible security authority along with remediation instructions for the programmers.

Benefits of Checkmarx's Security Gate

  • Allows for quick scan cycles early in the SDLC
  • Integrates with common IDEs and source-code repositories
  • Supports 20+ programming languages and their most popular programming frameworks
