E-Book: Nucleus Research: European Financial Services Institution ROI Case Study

by CheckmarxFeb 17, 2021

One of the largest European financial services institutions did not have a solution to address security vulnerabilities in their custom code. Falling under strict legal and industry standards for security and compliance, the organization considered manual approaches to address the security challenges they faced. However, they quickly realized they needed an integrated and automated way of improving the security of their custom code and looked to Checkmarx to remedy their situation.

As a result, the organization realized a 393 percent ROI and will recover its initial investment in less than five months after implementation.

This report takes a deep dive into how once Checkmarx Codebashing and SAST solutions were implemented, the organization realized a wide range of benefits including:

  • Increased employee productivity
  • Savings from reduced vulnerabilities
  • Scalability in growing environment

E-Book: Open Source Security: The Ultimate Guide to Software Composition Analysis

by CheckmarxFeb 17, 2021

Open source software has facilitated the rapid evolution of application development and shortened development cycles. As with any new advancement in technology, there can be risks associated with open source components which organizations must identify, prioritize, and address. Security vulnerabilities can leave sensitive data exposed to a breach, complex license requirements can jeopardize your intellectual property, and outdated open source libraries can place unnecessary support and maintenance burdens on your development teams.

Today, organizations need deep insight into open source security vulnerabilities affecting their software, with risk severity metrics, detailed vulnerability descriptions, and remediation guidance to mitigate the risk of exploitation.

This eBook is designed to help organizations, management teams, security practitioners, and developers understand Software Composition Analysis (SCA) in depth.

E-Book: 5 Reasons to Prioritize Software Security

by CheckmarxOct 06, 2021

The pace of digital transformation has reached a speed never before seen, forcing organizations into an "adapt or die" situation. Software is at the center of it all, placing increased pressure on DevOps leaders, AppSec managers, and developers to develop and deploy software faster to keep their organizations digitally competitive and relevant.

However, this need for speed comes at a price, as security often falls by the wayside. As the proliferation of software continues, bringing with it an ever-expanding attack surface that's ripe for targeting by malicious actors, securing software must be a priority above all else.

E-Book: An Integrated Approach to Embedding Security into DevOps

by CheckmarxOct 06, 2021

When software is everywhere, everything becomes an attack surface.

The root cause of many successful cyberattacks lies primarily in vulnerable software itself. The real question that needs to be asked is, "Can the industry do a better job of writing more-secure code, making software applications nearly impenetrable to cyberattacks?" Here at Checkmarx we believe the answer is yes. Checkmarx is dedicated to building software security solutions that address the root cause of nearly every successful cyberattack by finding, classifying, reporting, and demonstrating where and how to fix vulnerabilities in software.

Whitepaper: Checkmarx AppSec Awareness Solution (Codebashing)

by CheckmarxOct 06, 2021

Raising AppSec awareness shouldn't be thought of as a distinct step in the SDLC. It's all about inserting awareness into every step of the SDLC in a manner that actually fuels faster releases. CxCodebashing was designed specifically for this reason. Through the use of open communication, ongoing engagement, gamified training, and on-the-spot remediation support, security managers can cultivate a culture that empowers developers to think and act securely in their day-to-day work.
