Joomla chooses RIPS as its official Code Analysis Partner

RIPS Technologies GmbH, an eCAPITAL portfolio company, won Joomla as a strategically important customer.

Joomla, one of the world’s most popular Content Management Systems (CMS), will be using the RIPS code analysis solution to continuously scan the Joomla code base for tangible security vulnerabilities and weaknesses. RIPS Technologies GmbH, which was recently honoured at CEBIT as one of the winners of the “Digital Start-up 2018”, offers the industry leading static code security analysis solution, not only from Joomla’s point of view. The use by one of the most popular open source organisations hints at the technological leadership of RIPS and is therefore an important milestone for the start-up.
