Breaking Down Barriers with DevSecOps

Checkmarx delivers a perfect platform for DevOps and CI environments by redefining security’s role in the SDLC while operating at the speed of DevOps. The fast feedback loop makes security testing of new or edited code fragments quick with speedy remediation by developers.

This significantly reduces costs and eliminates the problem of having to deal with many security vulnerabilities close to release. Ultimately, by enabling developers to test their own code for security issues thus allowing them to get instant results and remediate the issues on the spot, everyone wins.
