Checkmarx recognized for the third straight year based on feedback and ratings from end users

RAMAT GAN, ISRAEL – October 28, 2021 Checkmarx, the global leader in developer-centric software security, today announced that it has been named a Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Application Security Testing for the third consecutive year. Checkmarx is the only vendor to have earned this recognition every year since the Peer Insights Customers’ Choice category debuted in 2019. This recognition is based on an overall rating, user interest, and adoption. Checkmarx was also named a Leader in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing, its fourth Leader designation in a row.

Checkmarx delivers the industry’s most comprehensive suite of application security solutions. By integrating and automating the company’s SAST, SCA, IAST, and Codebashing AppSec awareness training directly into DevOps processes, developers can address security flaws more quickly while organizations can confidently manage risk and mitigation more securely in less time.

“We believe being recognized as a Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice three years in a row, and as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing four years in a row, further validates our intense focus on customers and our developer-friendly, industry-leading solutions, services, and support,” said Emmanuel Benzaquen, CEO of Checkmarx. “I’d like to thank our customers for sharing their experiences in this industry-recognized forum and providing valuable feedback that helps propel our software security innovation.”

The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice distinction is based on verified ratings, reviews, and feedback from end users who have firsthand experience purchasing, implementing, and deploying vendor solutions. Customers who reviewed Checkmarx solutions praised their overall product capabilities, DevOps integration, and expert services.
