Virtual Forge and Checkmarx seal unique partnership for Static Application Security Testing (SAST)

(PresseBox) ( Heidelberg, )
The new partnership between Virtual Forge and Checkmarx offers companies a powerful platform for testing and ensuring the application security of business applications, including those that are developed in SAP ABAP.

Much of the data breaches still take place through the exploitation of vulnerabilities and security holes in software. Many companies therefore see the need to identify application vulnerabilities as early as possible and to fix them. For this very purpose, Static Application Security Testing (SAST-) solutions have been proven as effective means.

Until now, however, different security solutions had to be acquired to cover the variety of platforms and programming languages used to develop business applications. A uniform standard for evaluating and ensuring the security and quality across all business applications was hardly possible so far.

"By including Virtual Forge CodeProfiler in the Checkmarx CxSAST we can now offer our customers a powerful platform for all applications. We are proud to have won Virtual Forge as a partner who is recognized as one of the leading security experts in the SAP area", says Moshe Lerner, SVP Corporate Development of Checkmarx.

"Leveraging our unique SAST platform you are well prepared to ensure the security and quality requirements for your software developments. Whether your team develops applications in SAP ABAP or one of the 18 coding & scripting languages supported by Checkmarx CxSAST, you can be sure to get the best testing and analysis tools for each development environment and still maintain a consistent overview", adds Dr. Markus Schumacher, CEO of Virtual Forge.

With the combined solutions of Virtual Forge and Checkmarx, companies are now able to automatically detect security vulnerabilities and quality characteristics in the code of their entire application landscape as soon as those are created. All findings in the combined solution are consolidated in a central dashboard which makes it easy to manage and prioritize the remediation efforts with developers.
