Checkmarx, a global application security company headquartered in Ramat Gan, Israel, has launched a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) partner program.

Checkmarx specializes in Application Security Testing across proprietary code, open source, APIs, and infrastructure as code. Over 1,600 customers already leverage the software. Looking ahead, MSSPs could consume and extend the software to more customers. Checkmarx CEO Emmanuel Benzaquen described the advantage for its MSSP partners:

"The launch of our MSSP Program is a milestone in the Checkmarx journey and a natural extension of our commitment to global excellence in application security enablement. Our MSSP partners will bolster their service offerings, combining the industry's most comprehensive application security platform with the strong relationships and expertise of their own teams in a way that benefits organizations everywhere."
