20 Fastest Growing Security Companies

Making the World Hacker Free: Checkmarx is on its way

“The growing dependence on software coupled with increased exposure and usage of the Internet emphasize that software reliability is becoming increasingly critical to users. Software developers are expected to rise to the challenge and deliver applications faster than ever before which are both safe and secure.” Founded in 2006, Checkmarx proceeded with a vision to provide comprehensive solutions for automated security code review. The company wanted to come up with the solutions for identifying technical and logical code vulnerabilities. So they got committed to both customers and technology innovation. Since then Emmanuel Benzaquen, the CEO of Checkmarx, took the company to a much higher level. He brought around 15 years of technology and business experience in the semiconductor, software and IT fields into the company.

“Our research and development goes side by side with our business operations and support team to provide the best possible products and services to our customers.” – Benzaquen, CEO
