TechBridge Distribution, the leading Channel Value-Added Distributor (CVAD) in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region, is thrilled to announce its partnership with DerSecur, a comprehensive application security solution provider, known for its innovative DerScanner tool that integrates multiple security testing methodologies to provide robust application security.

This collaboration is set to redefine the cybersecurity landscape for TechBridge’s extensive network of channel partners and customers across the region.

G2, the world’s largest and most trusted software marketplace, recognises DerScanner as a High Performer for Static Application Security Testing (SAST), Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), and Software Composition Analysis (SCA).

Recently recognised by Forrester among notable SAST and SCA vendors, DerScanner is a leading application security solution that integrates Static Application Security Testing (SAST), Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) and Software Composition Analysis
(SCA)within a single platform. Recognised for its user-friendly and seamlessly integrated approach, DerScanner aligns with the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) standards being a MITRE-certified solution. It supports an unparalleled number of programming languages (43), including polyglot applications, and significantly reduces false positives with its proprietary Confi AI technology.

DerScanner’s comprehensive suite empowers organisations to identify vulnerabilities and undocumented features in the code of mobile and web applications, providing enhanced oversight of customer-facing application security. With the ability to analyse both the original source code and compiled binary code, DerScanner provides a robust solution for securing both newly developed and legacy applications.

DerScanner’s Software Composition Analysis (SCA) component enhances application security by proactively identifying vulnerabilities and licensing issues in third-party and open-source components. Going beyond simple vulnerability scanning, it provides a data driven health score for each package, enabling informed decision-making, efficient remediation, and avoidance of legal risks. With DerScanner SCA, organisations can confidently build secure, compliant software and minimize exposure to zero-day exploits and supply chain attacks.

Steve Lockie, Managing Director of TechBridge, commented, “We are thrilled to partner with DerSecur and introduce DerScanner, their state-of-the-art application security solution to the MEA region. DerScanner’s capabilities are crucial for securing fixed and mobile applications. DerScanner, used by hundreds of leading organisations, offers a unique blend of static and dynamic analysis, along with software composition analysis, to mitigate application vulnerabilities and open-source risks. This partnership significantly enhances our offerings, enabling our partners to deliver top-tier security solutions to their clients”.

Andy Dankevich, Chief Marketing Officer of DerScanner, remarked, “Partnering with TechBridge is a strategic move for us as we expand our footprint in the MEA region. TechBridge’s deep market knowledge, extensive network, and commitment to value-added distribution make them the ideal partner for us. We are confident that together, we will set new benchmarks in application security and support our mutual goal of safeguarding digital assets against evolving cyber threats”.

Dankevich reminisced, “Years ago we focused on enhancing the Confi AI Engine to reduce false positives findings – a key performance parameter for any code analyser. The present day Confi AI Engine is the result of years of scientific development, with an entire team of
researchers behind each new version. The convergence of science and technology made it possible for us to achieve a real breakthrough, significantly reduce false positives and save time for the security and development team.
