Code security leader signs first Italian channel partner to solve the challenges of current AppSec programs with its leading Secure Code Platform 

Contrast Security (Contrast), the code security platform built for developers and trusted by security, today announced it has signed its first channel partner in Italy with IMQ Minded Security. This partnership will enable Contrast to provide its leading Secure Code Platform to Italian businesses. 

“We are excited to partner with Contrast as we’ve been following the company with keen interest since it was co-founded by Jeff Williams,” said Matteo Meucci, CEO at IMQ Minded Security. “Their mission and methodology of changing the world of software security for the better has continued to impress us.” 

IMQ Minded Security was established with a focus on supporting businesses and organizations to build secure products and services. The company’s mission aligns with Contrast’s approach to transforming Application Security (AppSec) from the inside out and supporting developers in delivering code that is secure. IMQ Minded Security’s knowledge of the dynamic and specific needs of the various sectors in Italy enables Contrast to support its customers in a targeted manner throughout the entire Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).

“We are delighted for our clients to modernize their AppSec with Contrast. Contrast’s leading Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) solution, Contrast Assess, continuously detects and prioritizes vulnerabilities and guides development teams on how to eliminate risks. Contrast’s Runtime Application Protection (RASP) solution, Contrast Protect, is widely used in global enterprises to secure apps/application programming interfaces (APIs) at massive scale with almost no performance impact. This partnership will help our Italian customers finally eliminate entire classes of vulnerability, like those in the OWASP Top Ten, by automatically infusing simple, lightweight trust boundaries into applications/APIs,” Meucci said. 

Contrast provides a unified approach to AppSec that empowers security and development teams to get secure code moving seamlessly through the complete SDLC. Contrast’s technology embeds intelligent agents directly into code, instrumenting applications with thousands of smart sensors that detect real vulnerabilities with game-changing accuracy and precision — left through the development pipeline and right into production, wherever your applications are deployed.

“Much like the rest of the world, Italian businesses are not immune to application attacks. In May, the Italian Industry Ministry’s web portal and applications were hit by aheavy cyberattack,” said Simon Peters, VP Sales, EMEA at Contrast Security. ”As a result, Italian organizations are increasingly looking for best of breed and visionary AppSec solutions that scale with speed and accuracy. Our response was to dedicate a sales and technical team to the Italian market and to partner with the most trusted and reputable partner in Italy. We found that with IMQ Minded Security, with their deep expertise, experience and skills in AppSec.”
