Seemplicity and Checkmarx Partner
Seemplicity, the first risk reduction and productivity platform for modern security teams, today announced that it has partnered with Checkmarx, the global leader in developer-centric application security testing (AST) solutions. The partnership will see the Checkmarx One Platform integrated within Seemplicity's Productivity Platform, allowing joint customers to simplify the entire find-to-fix lifecycle and ultimately accelerate the time to remediation of vulnerabilities found throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC).

The integration brings security findings discovered by Checkmarx into Seemplicity's platform that provides a unified picture and workspace for risks posed to the organization. Seemplicity's deduplication, prioritization and workflow capabilities combined with Checkmarx' context-aware correlation engine empower organizations with both the visibility and operational efficiency required to successfully drive risk down at scale. The joint solution is deployed by both managed security service providers (MSSP) as well as security teams within large enterprises. 

"We are very pleased to partner with Seemplicity, a company that demonstrates true innovation to the real challenges faced by development and security teams today," said Checkmarx VP of Strategic Channels and Alliances Mark Osmond.

Checkmarx is working to drastically reduce risk by delivering seamless application security management from coding to deployment, to day-to-day management. Integrating and automating directly into DevOps processes enables organizations to confidently manage and mitigate more effectively in less time.

"Our partnership with Checkmarx is very exciting for us and stems from our shared philosophy of making work for security professionals easier, better, and more fulfilling," said Sharon Besser, SVP Business Development Seemplicity." This integration enhances the security teams' performance and provides a strong foundation for any enterprise to scale security functions in pace with business growth. As the threat landscape continuously evolves and the talent shortage increases the workload on security workers, our partnership will let security teams feel confident that they not only are able to find all the vulnerabilities, but to get the fix done quickly and efficiently."

Checkmarx and Seemplicity will hold a joint webinar discussing the future of work for AppSec teams touching on; how to rapidly reduce backlogs, how to gain full visibility and remediation for the entire enterprise, and how to prioritize fixes based on severity and workload.

Wunderkind Report Reveals CMO Outlook on Omnichannel Marketing Budget, Greater Revenue Potential in Brand-Customer Relationship

Wunderkind | September 19, 2022

With the height of the global pandemic and the initial onset of the supply chain crisis in the rear view mirror, new research from Wunderkind, a leading performance marketing channel that scales one-to-one messages for top brands, publishers, and advertisers, shows nearly all Chief Marketing Officers (94%) look at the last two years as a critical turning point for marketers. As part of its first annual CMO State of the Union report, Wunderkind sought to understand how eCommerce organizations exceeding $3M in annual online revenue are reflecting on the impact and lessons of the post-pandemic era and predicting the road ahead amid today's tumultuous retail market. The Not-So Silver Lining Although the pandemic, supply chain issues and inflation have proven taxing for brands, CMOs are showing they are overwhelmingly resilient. Despite the decline of brick-and-mortar retail in the last two years, CMOs spotted areas of growth and accelerated the development of omnichannel solutions. Research shows 73% of CMOs met or exceeded revenue projections and 55% were able to increase their overall marketing spend in the last two years. However, while 79% have shifted more of their marketing spend online, only one-third feel this shift will last and 71% of CMOs plan to reduce online marketing spend in the future. "CMOs are now at a crossroad. Innovation has to continue in order to communicate the right message, maintain consumer loyalty, boost revenue, and reach digital maturity," said Richard Jones, Chief Revenue Officer at Wunderkind. "CMOs are now at a crossroad. Innovation has to continue in order to communicate the right message, maintain consumer loyalty, boost revenue, and reach digital maturity," said Richard Jones, Chief Revenue Officer at Wunderkind. "While legacy technology has helped brands begin to reshape their marketing strategies, it has also created seas of disparate data and tools that aren't talking to each other – ultimately impeding brands from unlocking additional tangible revenue streams." Marketing Technology: Unlocking Competitive Advantages With the looming deprecation of third-party cookies, it becomes even more imperative that brands leverage first-party data as a cost-effective marketing strategy to keep customers coming back. While many companies have tapped creative solutions to manage customer expectations, the report shows that without understanding how to fully leverage the technologies brands have invested in, CMOs could be leaving money on the table. Most notably, resource allocation, in-house knowledge, measurement, and the use of first-party data are among the greatest areas of opportunity. Wunderkind found that: While 67% of CMOs rely on their own employees to adapt legacy technology to get the value they need, only 9% believe their tech strategy greatly enables their marketing performance 96% of brand marketing leaders believe there is a gap in knowledge of their technology 90% believe there is a gap in resources holding them back from success Nearly three-fourths of CMOs rely on social media and search engine statistics to measure marketing ROI, while less than half depend on customer experience statistics 60% of CMOs feel prepared for cookie deprecation, but 40% feel there is more work to be done The report also points to some brands remaining overly reliant on external channels and third-party data to target, retarget and acquire new customers. In fact, while first-party data was ranked as having the least positive impact on marketing results, the conundrum remains that if marketers can't recognize a customer for who they are and where they are, it becomes incredibly difficult to effectively scale one-to-one messages through owned marketing channels. Diversity & Inclusion Remains A Priority Amid the growing pressure on brands to customize their communication and use the right channels to authentically reach their audiences, they are also experiencing continued demand to reflect wide-reaching external issues such as social justice, diversity, and sustainability. The report finds: Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) has the most far-reaching impact on consumer marketing (37%) when requiring involvement from the executive team on marketing strategy Other external factors impacting marketing teams are social issues (33%), environmental issues (32%), and governance/compliance (26%) These issues were notably more pronounced for executives, citing DE&I (65%), governance/compliance (64%), environmental Issues (50%), social Issues (49%) as their top pressures. Pointing to a potential disconnect between how brands address macro external issues from a corporate reputation perspective compared to a holistic omnichannel marketing approach, the consistent takeaway is that brands must keep their customers top of mind. "While many retailers are weathering the turbulent landscape, the fact remains that many marketers' dependence on the status quo – from legacy technology and resourcing to third-party data – is holding their organizations back from unlocking new, critically-needed revenue streams," said Michael Osborne, President at Wunderkind. "Wunderkind is a leader in helping top global brands not only unlock first-party data as cookies depreciate, but also seize the ripe opportunity that lies in a powerful performance marketing channel that also adds value for customers in a holistic brand experience." The survey was first revealed at WUNDER, an invite-only conference hosted by Wunderkind featuring high-profile speakers and attendees from such brands as Rag & Bone, JLo Beauty, Casemate, Washington Commanders, and Spartan.

Report Methodology Wunderkind's CMO State of the Union was established as an annual survey to gauge the pulse of CMOs at leading B2C brands. Commissioned by Wunderkind, research was conducted online by Savanta Feb-April 2022 among 107 Director+ level professionals in the US and UK working in organizations with online revenue of $3 million+ annually and in the following roles: executive, marketing, finance, information technology, or operations.
