SBC Advertising Selects Cenzic to Upgrade Security for Client Web Sites

Cenzic's Hailstorm Web Application Security Software Finds Vulnerabilities in Web Sites Developed for Major Consumer Brands

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - April 21, 2010) - Cenzic Inc., the leading provider of Web application security solutions, today announced that SBC Advertising, a full-service advertising and marketing agency, has selected Cenzic Hailstorm software to increase security for client Web sites. SBC Advertising's interactive media department will now employ Cenzic software for vulnerability assessment and offer customers the added service of testing newly created Web sites for security vulnerabilities.

SBC Advertising offers a variety of interactive marketing services including Web design, custom applications and rich media/flash technologies for national brands and a broad range of retail-driven clients.

"We take the responsibility of guarding our clients' brand integrity very seriously, and have always held ourselves to a high standard in security," said Jason Feldheim, associate interactive technical solutions director for SBC Advertising. "By partnering with Cenzic, we've capitalized on a great opportunity to innovate our commitment to security with a solution that is easy to use, allows us to address our clients' needs even more efficiently and is cost-effective."

Cenzic Hailstorm is an award-winning black-box application scanning solution that allows users to run their own Web application security assessments on any application with a single click. Cenzic Hailstorm automates the process of managing Web application vulnerabilities. Assessment activity, trends, reports, vulnerability data and statistics for all activities are displayed in an intuitive user interface.

"For the marketing industry as a whole, security is often dismissed, but for anyone developing applications on the Web, security should always be addressed," said Mandeep Khera, CMO for Cenzic. "While interactive Web sites of this nature do not normally contain social security or credit card numbers, they do store basic personal information that should be treated carefully. No company wants to make headlines for a security breach."

Cenzic also offers ClickToSecure Managed, a remote assessment of customers' applications without any software installation. Customers get full access to a dashboard where they can see all of their application security trends and detailed vulnerability and compliance reports. In addition, Cenzic recently announced a cloud offering for companies that want affordable options to do quick scans, via their ClickToSecure Cloud solution. ClickToSecure Cloud has various levels of assessment from a basic check to support for compliance including PCI 6.6, and other regulations. The solution also allows customers to transition to deeper testing at their own pace.
