Financial Technology Enterprise allPay Adopts Checkmarx to Reduce Software Vulnerabilities
allPay increases its third-party payment platform security using leading source code analysis solution
TEL AVIV, Israel, [November 1, 2016] — Checkmarx, a global leader in software application security, and allPay, a financial technology enterprise with a third-party payment platform, today announced allPay’s full implementation of Checkmarx solutions to increase its security posture. Checkmarx worked with industry partner, Galaxy Software Services Corporation (GSS), to drive adoption of its CxCAST solution across allPay’s suite of product lines.
After opensource and proprietary static code analysis solution trials failed to deliver on allPay’s specific security testing needs, allPay adopted Checkmarx CxCAST to reduce software vulnerabilities and build up its secure third-party payment platform. Checkmarx CxCAST, which specializes in detecting vulnerabilities in proprietary source code and open source modules, allowed allPay to increase efficiency among its developer teams so code can be quickly and easily scanned for security and quality issues.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Galaxy Software Services and together delivering solutions to assist security conscious service providers in enhancing the security of their offerings” said Ran Lewinsky, Vice President of Sales at Checkmarx. “allPay places a significant emphasis on security and has performed extensive market research before coming to a final decision and we are proud to be the vendor of choice.”
allPay looked to a number of opensource and proprietary static code analysis solutions prior to its final selection of Checkmarx. Checkmarx was able to address the fact that allPay required a systemized source review solution that supported its many programming languages and complex development environments including ASP.NET, PHP, Node.js, iOS and Android.
“Thanks to its fast growth, allPay is now coding in a complex development environment. Checkmarx, as well as open source solutions and a variety of commercial utilities, were all reviewed as we selected our source code analysis solution,” said Vincent Liang, VP of Information Technology at allPay.
Following the adoption of Checkmarx, allPay has seen significant improvements in reducing software vulnerabilities and has aligned efforts of both its information security and development teams. Additional benefits include continuous compliance with PCI DSS standards, enhanced manual code review and collaboration with black box vulnerability scanning, and a faster scanning procedure enabling allPay to prioritize system vulnerabilities and reduce patching difficulties.
