Checkmarx and Fishtech Group Partner to Help Businesses Fight Software Exposure Risk

Fishtech customers will benefit from Checkmarx’s holistic, platform-centric approach that delivers security at the speed of DevOps

NEW YORK – October 23, 2018 -- Checkmarx, the Software Exposure Platform for the enterprise, today announced a strategic partnership with Fishtech Group to enable customers across North America manage software exposure at the speed of DevOps. Working together, Fishtech Group will become a reseller of Checkmarx’s Software Exposure Platform to help customers release secure software, faster.

"Checkmarx is helping to transform the software security industry by moving beyond traditional security testing to managing total software exposure across the entire SDLC," said Barry Cooper, VP of Marketing and Corporate Communications at Fishtech Group. "The Checkmarx platform enables customers to remove vulnerabilities earlier in their SDLC, and as a result, speeds up their time to market.  The partnership between Fishtech Group and Checkmarx allows our customers to integrate security into all stages of the DevOps lifecycle and reduce business risk across the enterprise."

Checkmarx was recently named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing for continuously delivering innovative and automated application security solutions within a single platform. The acknowledgement by Gartner was followed by a record-breaking 1H 2018, with a 68% increase in year-over-year revenue. The company’s Software Exposure Platform was a big driver of this growth, which empowers organizations to keep up with fast-paced release cycles by managing software exposure.

"Software is becoming more complex and faster release cycles carry more risk – as a result, software security needs to evolve," said Ron Kormanek, Vice President of Sales, North America at Checkmarx.  "As Checkmarx helps organizations gain full visibility and control of their software exposure at any stage of their software development lifecycle, Fishtech shares our vision and extends our reach. This partnership helps us reach more organizations in need as we continue the rapid expansion of our footprint across North America."

In a recent survey conducted by Freeform Dynamics, and issued by Checkmarx, 92 percent of organizations were found to struggle with implementing security into the DevOps process, despite most saying they want to. With an expanded channel presence via partners like Fishtech, Checkmarx will help close the gap between what’s needed and what’s actually in place when it comes to software security, helping more organizations address their software exposure throughout the software development lifecycle.
