Solving your code to cloud AppSec challenges with Checkmarx and our technology partners, sponsored by AWS

7 March 2024, America 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST

In an era where digital transformation is paramount, the security of applications from code to cloud has become a cornerstone for robust enterprise security strategies. Our upcoming virtual event is tailored to address the unique challenges you face in safeguarding cloud-native applications. Checkmarx has a robust ecosystem of technical partnerships ranging from SDLC tools, cloud and runtime, vulnerability management and emerging technologies such as AI.

This 90 minute event is built to educate on how you can take a proactive strategy for protecting your applications from code to cloud, going beyond conventional CNAPP solutions. We’re experts in understanding the criticality of the relationship between security teams and developers and we will explore how tools like Checkmarx and our partners can revolutionize your DevSecOps practices. This event is particularly relevant for enterprises grappling with large-scale development challenges.

You will hear from experts including Checkmarx, AWS and Sysdig who will provide best practice and practical advice including:

• Clarify the code to cloud strategy and its significance.
• Identify and address gaps in your application security.
• Implement strategies for comprehensive SDLC security.
• Prioritize impactful business outcomes from your Application Security (AppSec) program.
• Seamlessly integrate security measures into the developers' workflow.
• Share best practices for empowering developers with the right tools and knowledge.

Your presence at this event is not just about learning new strategies but about leading your organization towards a future where security and development are not at odds, but in harmony.

We look forward to your participation in what promises to be a transformative session.
