Checkmarx launches Checkmarx One AST in Singapore


To help regional developers rapidly test, remediate and secure their application code, Checkmarx, the global leader in developer-centric application security testing (AST) solutions, is now offering the Checkmarx One platform in Singapore for the ASEAN region. 

“Following the successful launch of Checkmarx One in Australia and India earlier this year, we are continuing to invest in the Asia Pacific region by making available our industry-leading application security platform in the ASEAN region,” said Hari Bhullar, Vice President of APAC, Middle East and Africa at Checkmarx.

In the first quarter of 2021, cloud services in Asia Pacific countries surpassed their use in the rest of the world with a record 85 percent of the IT and business services market, according to researchers at Information Services Group (ISG), far exceeding other regions. ISG also found that enterprises in Singapore and Malaysia are especially adopting cloud computing at a rapid pace, motivated by the growth of digital transformation and other regional trends.

Checkmarx One is designed for cloud-native application security delivers from the cloud and to support on-premises, cloud, and hybrid development environments. It identifies security issues, improving remediation throughout the software development life cycle to ensure that software remains secure from a developer’s first code commit through the production push.

The platform offers a single solution spanning the complex landscape of custom code, open source components, Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) deployments, APIs, and the open source supply chain, allowing application code to be more efficiently and effectively secured.

Human Managed Appointed the First Checkmarx MSSP in Asia

Human Managed, a decision-driven data analytics company, is the first managed security service provider (MSSP) for Checkmarx in ASEAN and the first customer for Checkmarx One in Singapore. Human Managed has integrated Checkmarx One with their event-driven platform to deliver AppSec IAD (intelligence, action, decision) that can scale to meet any need and offers flexible deployment options.

“Application security is usually an afterthought which keeps piling up at the backlog as a growing security debt. Shifting left to catch vulnerabilities earlier involves more than training and champions. It’s about democratizing application security, and empowering users to take responsible decisions. Application security is more than a cyber decision; it’s a digital decision of knowing how to act, what to protect and when to promote,” said Karen Kim, CEO of Human Managed.

In integrating their platforms, Checkmarx and Human Managed have created a holistic solution that allows application security services to be called through an API or other services, closing the divide between security and engineering.
