Checkmarx partners with Whitesource
May 2016 by Marc Jacob
Checkmarx, a global leader in application security testing and WhiteSource, the continuous open source component management solution, today announced a partnership, providing Checkmarx users with a comprehensive Open Source Analysis (OSA) solution. The new capability adds full visibility of the open source components used by developers. It reports known security vulnerabilities contained in the open source code and suggests available fixes. It also highlights licensing and compliance issues in any used open source components.
The new version of Checkmarx’s application security testing platform combines best-of-breed source code analysis and open source component analysis in a single product. Checkmarx’s platform is the only one to provide a comprehensive solution that covers all code security aspects in all major coding languages and is available both on-premise and on-demand.
