CheckMarx is a powerful static application security testing (SAST) tool that helps organizations identify and remediate security vulnerabilities in their software code.

Use it when :

  • - You want to secure your codebase and ensure it is compliant with industry standards and regulations.
  • - You need a tool that can be integrated into your software development lifecycle (SDLC).
  • - You want to identify and remediate security vulnerabilities early in the development process.
  • - You want to reduce the risk of data breaches and protect your organization's reputation.
  • - You need to demonstrate compliance with security standards and regulations.
  • - You want to automate security testing to reduce the workload on developers.

Consider :

  • - CheckMarx can generate a high number of false positives which require manual review and can slow down development.
  • - It may take some time to set up and configure the tool to work with your specific environment.
  • - It may require training for developers to use the tool effectively.
  • - The cost of licensing the tool can be expensive for small organizations.
