Israeli global software security company, Checkmarx, will join the Israeli Cyber Companies Consortium (IC3) headed by Israeli Aerospace Industries (IAI) to offer application security testing solutions within the IC3 ecosystem, IAI announced last month.
IC3 was founded in 2016 by the IAI with the help of Israel’s Ministry of Economy alongside other companies to provide “the most advanced cyber-defense capabilities to national governments around the world.” The consortium currently includes local Israeli companies like Check Point, Cognyte, CyberArk, XM Cyber, Mellanox, Cyber X, and IAI, among others.
Founded in 2006, Checkmarx is a software security provider achieving breakthroughs in Application Security Testing to “make security seamless and simple for the world’s developers while giving CISOs the confidence and control they need.” Checkmarx already serves more than 1,600 clients including half of the Fortune 50 companies.
Checkmarx supplies industry development and security teams with comprehensive solutions with high degrees of accuracy, coverage, visibility, and recommendations to lower risks across the many facets of modern-day software such as proprietary code, open-source, APIs, and infrastructure code.
“The world runs on code, and the Checkmarx Application Security Platform is there to secure it,” said Checkmarx Emmanuel Benzaquen.
“Joining the Consortium is a natural step for Checkmarx given our ultimate mission, which is to help every organization, whether corporate, institutional or governmental – to make their applications and source code more secure,” added Benzaquen.
