Checkmarx has added the Brinqa Attack Surface Intelligence Platform's prioritization, automation and reporting capabilities to its Checkmarx One Application Security Platform.

In doing so, Checkmarx and Brinqa provide "the industry's most complete orchestration of the cyber risk lifecycle for code," the companies announced in a prepared statement.

Brinqa-Checkmarx Integration Examined

Checkmarx One users can utilize Brinqa's Attack Surface Intelligence Platform to "correlate context, prioritize risk, streamline remediation and continuously report on application security posture," Brinqa indicated.

Meanwhile, Checkmarx and Brinqa offer a joint solution that delivers a variety of application security capabilities, including:

  • Static application security testing (SAST)
  • Dynamic application security testing (DAST)
  • Software composition analysis (SCA)
  • Infrastructure as code (IaC)

These capabilities promote automated vulnerability discovery, prioritization, remediation and reporting, the companies stated. They also provide organizations with the services and expertise that they need to plan, design, implement and deliver application security programs that address modern security challenges.

Kobi Tzruya, Checkmarx's chief R&D officer, described how the Checkmarx-Brinqa joint solution allows organizations to integrate security into their applications:

"This joint solution automates the application cyber risk and remediation lifecycle, ensuring the concept of 'shift everywhere' is adopted from the ground up. This is vital support for mission-critical application security teams in their efforts to reduce risk and ensure compliance while supporting business growth."

Brinqa CEO Amad Fida explained how the Checkmarx-Brinqa joint solution provides organizations with visibility into their attack surface:

"Developing a modern vulnerability risk management program requires visibility into every part of your attack surface, including code and applications – and this partnership ensures companies have just that. Combining Checkmarx One with Brinqa’s Attack Surface Intelligence platform empowers organizations to incorporate comprehensive AppSec insights into a companywide view of cyber risk, now and into the future."
