Cenzic Awarded Prestigious JOLT Product Excellence Award by Leading Software Development Publication Dr. Dobb's Journal

Intuitive Design, Comprehensiveness, and PCI 6.6 Compliance Among Attributes for Best Software Development Security Tool Honor

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - Cenzic Inc., the leading provider of Web application security assessment and risk management solutions, today announced that its Hailstorm Product has been honored by Dr. Dobb's Journal, a leading software development publication, with its JOLT Product Excellence Award. The award, which recognizes innovative and trend-making products names Cenzic's Hailstorm 6.5 solution as the best software development security tool.

The JOLT Product Excellence Award from Doctor Dobb's Journal applauds Cenzic's solution for its intuitive design and versatile, comprehensive capabilities, noting the product's ability to meet the growing challenges of securing Web applications.

In addition, the JOLT award praises the solution's PCI compliance features, noting: "Hailstorm includes PCI 6.6 testing and helps remove the guesswork from a regulatory compliance perspective."

"This award is a testament to both the growing concerns around Web vulnerabilities and our commitment to providing the best solutions out there to combat them," said Mandeep Khera, CMO for Cenzic. "Receiving this prestigious award from Dr. Dobb's Journal, a publication known for selecting the must-haves for software developers, is truly an honor. Making sure Web applications are secure is a necessity in a world where web threats have never been greater. We are glad to provide an intuitive yet powerful solution to that end."

Hailstorm addresses Web application security across the enterprise, and is the only solution that includes patented fault injection technology. With its intelligent risk-management dashboard, Cenzic Hailstorm gives companies the ability to automatically discover and inventory applications, providing a comprehensive view of their security status with complete workflow from a central console. Cenzic Hailstorm enables companies to automatically identify all Web applications within an environment via a Web application discovery tool and provides a quantitative HARM (Hailstorm Application Risk Metric) score, measuring vulnerability levels of applications.

"In today's environment, risk assessment and vulnerability scanning is a must-have resource, not a nice-to-have," said Jon Kurz, JOLT Award judges panel. "However, securing applications grows more challenging each day. Cenzic Hailstorm 6.5's new features meet that challenge remarkably well. Hailstorm includes a comprehensive set of security analysis tools that give a clear picture, across the entire application, of where problems exist."
