Checkmarx Integrations with IDEs

Checkmarx Integrations with Popular IDEs

Why Integrate Checkmarx with your favorite IDE?

Strengthen your security stance by shifting left into an environment that’s comfortable for all devs. By easily integrating an interactive UI plugin for CxSAST, whether on-prem or in the cloud, users can review and fix code vulnerabilities within their preferred IDE. Devs can navigate to the best-fix location directly from the natively displayed scan results, and then click-through to the corresponding CxCodebashing lesson to learn how to fix and avoid those vulnerabilities. And once they remediate vulnerabilities, they can kick off private scans to verify their code is vulnerability-free before merging it.

IDEs We Integrate With




VS Code

Code Securely from the Start

Easy Automation for Early Insight

Run private scans on uncompiled source code, not binaries, during development before the pipeline to find security issues sooner, rather than needing to circle back later with larger, more labor-intensive remediation efforts. Checkmarx automates software security scans within the IDE, pulling vulnerability results, best-fix location, and the exploitable path of any vulnerability. Additionally, devs can click through to the corresponding CxCodebashing (AppSec developer training) lesson directly from their native UI so they can accelerate remediation with training keyed directly to the vulnerability they’ve just uncovered.

Dissolve Developer Resistance to Adopting Security

CISOs or program managers might allot budget for vendors and processes, but developers need to be supported—even empowered—by the solutions selected by management. Otherwise, security tools gather dust, and “shifting left” never happens, increasing the time and cost of development. With Checkmarx and our easy integrations into the most prominent IDEs, developers can review code vulnerabilities from automated or manual scans and fix them right from their preferred development tools.

A Centralized Solution, Anywhere You Run

Technical managers and security team leads need flexible yet easy-to-manage solutions that can run on-prem and in the cloud. It’s easy to integrate Checkmarx into your IDE with interactive UI plugins, grant role-based access control, and kick off private scans to verify the fixes developers make before committing into your repo. To get started, each dev can download the plugin and start taking advantage of automated security scans and results without ever having to leave their IDE.

Integrated Checkmarx Solutions


Highly accurate and flexible, CxSAST automatically scans uncompiled source code enabling organizations to identify hundreds of potential security vulnerabilities in the most common coding languages and frameworks.


CxSCA performs composition analysis and enforces open source security policies as part of software development by ensuring vulnerable components and libraries are removed or replaced, while meeting relevant license requirements.


Our interactive AppSec awareness and training platform provides interactive, gamified, secure coding education to sharpen the skills developers need to avoid security issues, fix vulnerabilities, and write more secure, better-quality code.
