GiG anounces partnership with Checkmarx
Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has signed an agreement with Checkmarx for the provision of its static application security testing (SAST). The partnership allows GiG to scale and build on the maturity of its application security.
Checkmarx is a global leader in application security testing (AST). Its Checkmarx SAST (CxSAST) product is an enterprise-grade solution providing high-speed and accurate custom code security analysis, helping to eliminate cybersecurity risks. Enriched by Checkmarx’s powerful AST automation capabilities, CxSAST integrates directly into source code management systems and with leading CI/CD tools, enabling developers and AppSec teams to build and deploy more secure software faster than ever before.
The partnership with Checkmarx enables GiG to provide its developers with a powerful source code scanning tool, which will allow them to identify and rectify security vulnerabilities in custom code security at a single point. This will enhance the development process by accelerating remediation time, and by generating meaningful and actionable insight on code security. This allows GiG to continue building on the maturity of its application security, thereby improving its product offering to operators and strengthening its digital trust.
Commenting on the announcement, Chris Armes, chief information officer at GiG, said: “Security is embedded in our culture and ingrained in everything we do as a business. Partnering with Checkmarx forms part of the wider initiative of integrating security throughout the development life cycle of our partner’s online casino or sports betting sites. The partnership will help to fuel our primary security objective of engineering secure products throughout GiG’s ecosystem.”
Christopher Brennan, regional director, DACH and CEE, Checkmarx, said: “Modern software development is complex, requiring organisations and development teams to place both speed and security at the forefront of everything they do, and Checkmarx is committed to helping our customers achieve this balance. We’re pleased that an innovator like Gaming Innovation Group has chosen to utilise CxSAST and are confident that our partnership will allow them to instil cyber resilience into the software they develop, setting the standard for software security in the igaming industry.”
