CyberKnight becomes Middle East Distributor Checkmarx

According to Gartner “by 2023, 90% of web-enabled applications will have more surface area for attack in the form of exposed APIs rather than the user interface (UI), up from 50% in 2020. By 2022, API abuses will move from an infrequent to the most frequent attack vector, resulting in data breaches for enterprise web applications.” Nowadays, organizations require application security technologies that are easy to deploy and provide high assurance, protection, high-value findings, without slowing down operations and overall performance.

To address customer challenges related to application security: source code scanning, software composition analysis, application security testing and DevSecOps, CyberKnight has signed a distribution partnership with Checkmarx, a global leader in application security testing solutions for modern enterprise software development. For four consecutive years, Checkmarx has been named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for AST.

“Application security testing solutions that address the broadening risk landscape are no longer a ‘nice to have,’ but rather a ‘must have,’ and today, it is imperative to leverage solutions that address all components and risks within modern applications. With 15+ years of AppSec innovation, we remain committed and intensely passionate about delivering powerful solutions to serve all organizations in the Middle East and globally. Partnering with CyberKnight will enable us to accelerate our expansion plans in the region,” said Nitin Kumar Dang, Regional Country Director, India & Middle East at Checkmarx.

“The digital world runs on software, making the importance of software security undisputable. The ability to embed security throughout the software development lifecycle is essential today. Through our partnership with Checkmarx customers will have access to a comprehensive platform that will unify application security into a single platform and automatically scan uncompiled code while fixing hundreds of security vulnerabilities instantly.”, commented Vivek Gupta, Co-Founder and COO at CyberKnight.
