CyberKnight has signed a distribution agreement with Checkmarx to solve client issues in application security, including source code scanning, software composition analysis, application security testing, and DevSecOps. “By 2023, 90% of web-enabled apps will have greater surface area for attack in the form of accessible APIs than the user interface (UI), up from 50% in 2020,” according to Gartner. API abuse will become the most common attack vector by 2022, resulting in data breaches for enterprise web applications.” Today, businesses require application security technologies that are simple to implement and provide high assurance, protection, and high-value findings without slowing down operations and overall performance.
“Application security testing solutions that address the broadening risk landscape are no longer a ‘nice to have,’ but rather a ‘must have,’ and today, it is imperative to leverage solutions that address all components and risks within modern applications. With 15+ years of AppSec innovation, we remain committed and intensely passionate about delivering powerful solutions to serve all organizations in the Middle East and globally. Partnering with CyberKnight will enable us to accelerate our expansion plans in the region,” said Nitin Kumar Dang, Regional Country Director, India & Middle East at Checkmarx.
“The digital world runs on software, making the importance of software security undisputable. The ability to embed security throughout the software development lifecycle is essential today. Through our partnership with Checkmarx customers will have access to a comprehensive platform that will unify application security into a single platform and automatically scan uncompiled code while fixing hundreds of security vulnerabilities instantly.”, commented Vivek Gupta, Co-Founder and COO at CyberKnight.
