Checkmarx EMEA Channel Program Accelerates with New U.K. and Ireland Partnerships

Partners leverage industry leading Checkmarx Software Security Platform to help organizations achieve DevSecOps goals

London, U.K. – February 12, 2020Checkmarx, a global leader in software security solutions for DevOps, today announced that its EMEA Channel Partner Program continues to see significant momentum, with the U.K. and Ireland regions signing numerous new partnerships with local resellers and distributors over the past year. This is a result of organizations across the globe increasingly leveraging application security testing (AST) to better identify, triage, prioritize, and remediate their security risk across the software development lifecycle (SDLC).

The Checkmarx Channel Partner Program is designed to enable partners to offer comprehensive AST solutions comprising Checkmarx’s Software Security Platform, helping customers accelerate the delivery of secure software and operate at the speed of DevOps. Checkmarx expanded its Channel Partner Program in early 2019 to the U.K. and Ireland, offering, Gold, Silver, and Certified partnership levels. Based on the level selected, partners gain access to program benefits including market development funds (MDFs), rebate-event participation, not-for-resale (NFR) programs, and training and enablement, among others.

“Checkmarx has quickly become the preferred AST solution provider of choice in the U.K. and Ireland, as our partners and customers understand the convenience and efficiencies of our unified Software Security Platform,” said Declan Dickens, Senior Manager, U.K. & Ireland Channels and Alliances, Checkmarx. “As we continue to accelerate our indirect sales model in EMEA and beyond, we’re dedicated to maintaining our strategic partner program to enable businesses worldwide to benefit from our comprehensive platform and take a more proactive approach to their software security.”

New regional partners that Checkmarx is working with include:

    • Softcat: Market-leading IT infrastructure reseller specializing in areas including networking and security and IT services.
    • Performanta: Delivers cybersecurity services to customers in more than 50 countries worldwide.
    • Secon Cyber: Possesses long-standing experience providing industry-leading cybersecurity solutions to customers ranging from small to large enterprises.
    • Clearvision: Award-winning software services distributor, helping organizations manage their agile transformations and methodologies.
    • ASM Technologies: Delivers agile technology distribution across the IT channel in four continents and over 30 countries.

“Performanta and Checkmarx have a successful history in selling and implementing application and software security solutions in Africa over the last five years. When we had the opportunity to expand to the U.K. market and help spread awareness about solutions that address software-borne vulnerabilities, it was a natural shift and we did not hesitate,” added Lior Arbel, General Manager, Europe & North America, Performanta.

The Checkmarx Software Security Platform combines static application security testing (SAST), interactive application security testing (IAST), software composition analysis (SCA), and developer application security awareness and training to enable organizations to better manage their software security across the entire software development lifecycle (SDLC) at the speed of DevOps. As a partner and customer-friendly platform for application security, the solutions are flexible and customizable and can be leveraged on-premises, in the cloud, or as a managed service, making them suitable for all organizations and sizes.
