TEL AVIV (Reuters) - Israel’s Checkmarx, which provides application security testing technology, said on Monday it acquired UK-based Codebashing, an application security education company.
Financial details were not disclosed.
Checkmarx said traditional secure coding education is ineffective since long training courses disrupt a developer’s daily routine and don’t address specific challenges.
This acquisition - Checkmarx’s first - will allow the company to introduce continuous bite-sized secure coding training. Codebashing’s interactive training platform will be integrated into Checkmarx’s product offering.
Checkmarx’s customers include SAP, Samsung and Salesforce.
