a flaw in Amazon's Alexa that enables the digital assistant to listen in
on its users indefinitely, and identifying a
vulnerability in Tinder
that put users' privacy at risk.

application security testing portfolio, and as we enter the second half

of our customers to deliver secure software faster," said Emmanuel

application layer, but Checkmarx's approach to application security not
only minimizes software risk by ensuring the code written for an
application does what it was built to do, it delivers security at the
speed of DevOps and the business."
