Checkmarx, the industry leader in cloud-native application security for the enterprise, today announced its Checkmarx Technology Partner program, enabling organizations to easily extend the leading AppSec platform with a wide range of technology partner capabilities.
The combination of best-of-breed technology partners with the leading enterprise AppSec platform helps organizations shift everywhere, from code to cloud, with a unified AppSec posture integrated into the software development life cycle (SDLC). Checkmarx' Technology Partner Program helps organizations simplify management across their AppSec programs, get more value out of existing AppSec solutions and drive better security outcomes.
Providing broad support for greater AppSec maturity throughout the entire SDLC, the Checkmarx Technology Partner program enables partners and their customers to centralize and simplify discovery in these key areas through Checkmarx One:
Vulnerability and risk management systems: Aggregate, normalize and prioritize vulnerabilities and risks with a unified, holistic view with partners like ArmorCode, Brinqa and ServiceNow.
SDLC tools: Integrate AppSec at all stages of the software development lifecycle within the environments and tools used daily by analysts, developers and testers with partners like GitLab, JetBrains and Security Compass.
Cloud and runtime security: Match cloud assets at runtime with application source code projects so that vulnerabilities found in the developer source code are enriched with runtime context, and runtime cloud security inventories are enriched with AppSec findings – all possible through partners like AWS, Cisco Panoptica and Sysdig.
Emerging technologies: Work with the most innovative startups and technologies including AI and GenAI to shape tomorrow's AppSec solutions landscape with partners like Mobb.ai.
Expanding this ecosystem simplifies the process of mitigating AppSec risk for our partners' customers, making their applications exponentially more secure during a time of escalating threats, said Kobi Tzruya, Chief Research and Development Officer at Checkmarx. From protecting AI-generated code to helping build trust between developers and security teams, Checkmarx One is already the AI-driven, enterprise-ready AppSec platform of choice. Now working with other leading technology companies to meet the need for streamlined, consolidated solutions will make life easier and applications safer for everyone.
Checkmarx recently announced Sysdig as its latest technology partner, bringing runtime container insights into Checkmarx One so organizations can prioritize vulnerabilities associated with container packages that are actually running and that pose the most risk.
"The top application security vendors have a responsibility to team up to provide more robust and complete solutions for the world's enterprises," said Bryan Smoltz, VP of Technology Alliances at Sysdig. "By delivering runtime insights within Checkmarx One, customers have clear visibility into the workloads that are running in production so they can make better-informed security decisions. Together, we're helping to bring maximum protection at cloud speed."

Business Wire | October 25, 2023
Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern application security, today introduced an industry-first attack path analysis of APIs and software supply chain exploits to its Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) called Cloud Secure. The new release includes machine learning (ML)-based hacker toolkits and improved visualizations that boost discovery of potential data breaches in first-party APIs and third-party software supply chain assets hosted in multi-cloud environments.
As a result of today’s launch, organizations can now leverage an advanced ML-based CNAPP solution to best secure their cloud-native apps and discover weaknesses which could lead to data breaches. Previously, organizations had to rely on cloud security posture management (CSPM) and agent-based cloud workload protection platforms (CWPP) that lack the ability to accurately detect attack surfaces such as first- and third-party APIs that lead to the critical path hackers utilize to successfully exploit vulnerabilities and extract sensitive data.
Data Theorem’s new release of Cloud Secure now delivers Cloud Hacker Toolkits powered by a new set of visualization features and ML enhancements for exploit prioritization, helping organizations focus on the most critical vulnerabilities that hackers can take advantage of for a cyberattack to extract data from cloud-native apps. In addition, Cloud Secure now offers ML-powered optimized Cloud Assets inventory with new visualizations for organizations to better understand the relationships between applications (mobile and web), APIs (first and third party), and the myriad of cloud resources. As a result, organizations for the first time can have an accurate inventory of their cloud-native and cloud-hosted applications, and visualize the growing attack surfaces including APIs they develop themselves and APIs that come from leveraging open-source software, third-party software development kits (SDKs), and public cloud services within their software supply chains.
As we have seen, machine learning, and particularly generative language learning model (LLM), offers a new set of innovations and creativity for both security practitioners and attackers, said Doug Dooley, Data Theorem COO. Data Theorem is pleased to offer the industry’s first CNAPP solution which leverages some of the more useful elements of machine learning combined with run-time analysis, observability, and active protection. Cloud Secure continues to lead the industry as the most application-centric CNAPP offering helping organizations uncover new attack vectors in cloud-native applications and APIs that ultimately prevent large-scale data breaches. ML-powered Hacker Tool Kits and Optimized Cloud Assets, in addition to Cloud Secure’s other advancements in this new release, uniquely protect organizations’ cloud applications in multi-cloud environments.
Cloud Secure now also offers a new UI design that improves the end-to-end CNAPP workflow for organizations with new dashboard, inventory, security testing, and cloud-native protection sections. For example, the Cloud-Native Protection visualization graph with Cloud Abuse highlights priority events, actors, and attack path analysis that uniquely helps organizations diagnose near real-time data breaches and attempts at exfiltration attacks. In addition, Cloud Secure’s Enhanced Compliance Summary section with status and on-demand reporting downloads automates the audit processes to help organizations prove compliance.
Cloud Secure, powered by Data Theorem’s award-winning Analyzer Engine, helps organizations secure their cloud-native applications and address regulatory compliance for cloud monitoring and reporting. It is the industry’s first solution delivering full-stack attack path analysis for cloud-native applications that starts at the client layer (mobile and web), protects the network layer (APIs), and extends down through the underlying infrastructure (cloud services). Its combination of attack path analysis and run-time active protections enables both offensive and defensive security capabilities to best prevent data breaches of cloud-native applications, embedded APIs, and serverless cloud functions.
Data Theorem’s broad AppSec portfolio protects organizations from data breaches with application security testing and protection for modern web frameworks, API-driven microservices and cloud resources. Its solutions are powered by its award-winning Analyzer Engine which leverages a new type of dynamic and runtime analysis that is fully integrated into the CI/CD process, and enables organizations to conduct continuous, automated security inspection and remediation. Data Theorem is one of the first vendors to provide a full stack application security analyzer that connects attack surfaces of applications starting at the client layers found in mobile and web, the network layers found in APIs, and the infrastructure layers found in cloud services.
About Data Theorem
Data Theorem is a leading provider of modern application security, helping customers prevent AppSec data breaches. Its products focus on API security, cloud (serverless apps, CSPM, CWPP, CNAPP), mobile apps (iOS and Android), and web apps (single-page apps).
