Checkmarx, the leader in cloud-native application security, has announced an integration partnership with SD Elements from Security Compass, a leader in Security by Design. The integration enhances Checkmarx One, the industry-leading enterprise application security platform, and Checkmarx SAST by incorporating SD Elements to streamline and expand threat modeling capabilities across the software development life cycle (SDLC).

Threat modeling is essential in identifying and mitigating potential security threats early in the development process. By integrating SD Elements, Checkmarx One empowers developers and security teams to secure applications from code to cloud, significantly reducing application security risks while maintaining efficient developer workflows.

The integration with SD Elements facilitates a “Security by Design” methodology, enabling continuous threat modeling to scrutinize every code change and new feature addition. This ensures a dynamic and comprehensive assessment of the threat model throughout its lifecycle, from initial release to subsequent updates.

“Proaction and prevention are keys to secure applications today, which makes threat modeling a critical element,” said Ori Bendet, VP of Product Management at Checkmarx. “In order to ensure success of threat modeling and application security, it’s essential that it be part of a seamless process. Because teams need the delivery of precise results to be fast and available in context, these integrations with Security Compass will enable today’s code-to-cloud development to be done in a more secure and highly efficient manner.”

Trevor Young, Chief Product Officer at Security Compass, adds, “Integrating SD Elements with Checkmarx’ robust application security solutions marks a significant milestone in our mission to embed security seamlessly into the development process. This partnership underscores our shared vision of making security an integral, uncompromising part of application development, ensuring that every software release is secure by design.”
