SINGAPORE – December 2, 2022 Checkmarx, the global leader in developer-centric application security testing (AST) solutions, today announced that it has named Amit Daniel as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). Bringing deep strategic experience to the role, Daniel will lead Checkmarx global corporate marketing, branding, digital marketing and communications initiatives as the company delivers on rapidly growing customer demand for comprehensive application security solutions.

“Amit’s remarkable pedigree for successfully building global brands and driving adoption of innovative technologies speaks for itself. We’re thrilled to have someone of her caliber join the Checkmarx leadership team,” said Emmanuel Benzaquen, CEO at Checkmarx. “We’ve seen unprecedented demand for our application security solutions over the past year, and Amit’s leadership will enable us to further capitalize on this opportunity, advance our leadership position and drive the next stage in Checkmarx’ international growth.”  

Daniel joins Checkmarx from Cognyte, a leading investigative analytics software company, where she was CMO for the last seven years. During her time there, she led a company spinoff from Verint, rebranded the company and built the strategy to float on the NASDAQ as an independent company. Daniel has also held leadership positions in marketing, product management and partner sales at several business-to-business companies. Daniel’s proven track record spans over two decades with global high-tech companies in many sectors. 

“Checkmarx’ differentiated technology platform and its position as an application security leader allow me to develop enhanced strategies to expand and grow in the market with a continued focus on large enterprises,” said Amit Daniel, CMO at Checkmarx. “The need to shift left in the software development cycle is becoming more and more clear as the threats get more sophisticated, and I look forward to bringing my diverse experience to help further Checkmarx’ mission to push the boundaries of code scanning and set new standards for the industry.” 

In this new role, Daniel will work diligently to establish a comprehensive, focused and strategic approach to support Checkmarx’s continued growth.
