Checkmarx vs GitHub:
AppSec Platform Comparison

Build #DevSecTrust Without Sacrificing Security

Checkmarx helps you build trust between your security and development teams by prioritizing the most impactful issues to fix and bringing them into developers’ existing workflow. This makes vulnerabilities easier to fix without sacrificing the effectiveness of your AppSec initiatives.

Fix before
you commit 

GitHub Advanced Security requires you to compile code before you scan. Checkmarx scans on check-in, so you can find and fix vulnerabilities before they get merged into your project. 

Find and fix – more 

GitHub is the gold standard for repos, but not AppSec. GitHub Advanced Security can miss many critical vulnerabilities that Checkmarx finds, and helps you fix, before they enter your codebase. 

Same GitHub integration  

Checkmarx seamlessly integrates with GitHub so you can scan code right out of your repo — manually, automatically when you check in code, or automated as part of your Actions workflow.

Why Checkmarx Stands Out

Complete AppSec platform 

GitHub Advanced Security only works with GitHub repos. Checkmarx works with every repo and every part of your SDLC, including GitHub, GitLab, Azure DevOps, and many, many more.

Checkmarx secures more of your application, from the first line of code to deployment and runtime in the cloud in a unified AppSec platform built to seamlessly work together from the ground up.

Reporting and analytics for everybody 

Driving digital transformation requires making—and tracking—progress in reducing risk. GitHub lacks many of the basic reporting capabilities you need to run an effective AppSec program.

Checkmarx provides a wide range of reporting capabilities so that everybody gets the information they need, from scan results in the IDE and pull requests, to vulnerability tracking by project, and CISO dashboards showing risk reduction across your entire application footprint.

Wide services umbrella

Developers love GitHub tools—and for good reason. They’re easy to use and implement, while managing an AppSec solution can be more complex. But simple tools can’t account for the differences between the many unique applications that you need to protect.

Checkmarx offers a broad range of services from program development, onboarding, optimization, and training. We can help reduce false positives, improve developer experience, get your AppSec program humming, and improve your security outcomes.

Prioritize Your Findings With Accurate Results

Avoid false positives and false negatives with custom presets and queries, while receiving optimization guidance from our professional services experts, who will guide you every step of the way.

Develop Secure Applications Easily

Meet your developers where they are. Checkmarx SAST seamlessly integrates directly into developers preferred work environment, and allows them to see where and how to fix vulnerable code.

Save Time Fixing Vulnerabilities

Remediate vulnerabilities faster by only scanning the changed code. There’s no need to rescan an entire application every time.

Mitigate API Risk Faster

Discover and assess APIs everywhere – throughout the lifecycle, in documentation, source code, and dynamic testing – to address risks efficiently.

Prioritized Remediation

Focus your AppSec teams and developers on the most critical issues, by prioritizing API vulnerabilities based on their business value and risk.
