Checkmarx Educates on Software Exposure at Key Industry Events in October

October 2, 2018

NEW YORK & RAMAT GAN, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 2, 2018--Checkmarx, the Software Exposure Platform for the enterprise, will present at several key industry events this month, with sessions focused on the changing nature of software development and its impact on secure software delivery.

“Software has become increasingly complex to manage and secure, especially in light of quicker release cycles and widespread adoption of DevOps,” said Erez Yalon, manager of application security research at Checkmarx. “This increased complexity results in a new type of business risk in the form of software exposure -- the numerous ways, beyond code vulnerabilities, in which an organization could be exploited by an adversary. Our presence at these leading industry events over the next month underscores our commitment to helping organizations better detect, intelligently prioritize, and remediate their software exposure across the software development lifecycle (SDLC) and improve the overall security posture of their business.”

Yalon and several other Checkmarx executives will discuss Checkmarx’s holistic approach to managing software exposure, with a specific focus on fast-paced DevOps environments. Upcoming speaking sessions include:
