earliest possible point in the development process.
Checkmarx’s software security testing platform is unique in the public sector. No other federal-grade platform addresses core issues with a single easy-to-deploy-and-use solution.
Checkmarx’s automated approach shifts more of your security effort to the left – driving down costs and accelerating time to market. Even better, it also simplifies your ability to document security compliance.

Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)
NIST 800.53 and the Risk Management Framework (RMF), which are used by all federal agencies and their contractors
DISA’s Security Technical Implementation Guideline (STIG), which establishes the assessment criteria used by DoD organizations before issuing an ATO
Codebashing helps developers learn and sharpen application security skills in the most efficient way, because it is in-context and available on-demand. Codebashing is fully integrated into the CxSAST user interface so when developers encounter a security vulnerability they can immediately activate the appropriate learning session, quickly run through the hands-on training, and get straight back to work equipped with the new knowledge to resolve the problem.
