Cenzic ClickToSecure Cloud Named Product of the Year Finalist for 2011 Stevie® Awards

Cenzic's One-of-a-Kind Cloud Offering Brings Web Application Security to the Masses

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - Cenzic Inc., the leading provider of Web application security assessment and risk management solutions, announced today that ClickToSecure Cloud was named a finalist in the New Product or Service of the Year category for the 2011 American Business Awards, The Stevies.

In the Spring of 2010 Cenzic launched ClickToSecure Cloud, the industry's first true cloud offering for Web application security allowing users to test their websites for vulnerabilities and conduct quick assessments entirely in the cloud. With ClickToSecure Cloud organizations have the opportunity to select different types of Web application vulnerability scans that will detect "holes" or vulnerabilities in their website -- from a standard "HealthCheck" to one that provides help with compliance, including PCI 6.6,OWASP and other standards. The offering is a fast, cost-effective way to improve website security posture without having to become a security expert.

"Businesses are vulnerable to hackers, regardless of their size or industry. There are over 250 million websites in the world and only a tiny fraction of those are protected," said John Weinschenk, President and CEO for Cenzic. "ClickToSecure Cloud was a milestone solution for us in that it put Web application security in reach of countless organizations thanks to its cost-effective options and cloud delivered means."

In recent weeks, attacks on the Sony PlayStation Network, Michael's and Epsilon have made headline news, each with a common thread; they were brought down at the Web application layer via SQL injection. SQL injection is one of the most common tactics used by hackers today, and is a vulnerability that can easily be detected using any one of Cenzic's suite of products, including ClickToSecure Cloud.

Cenzic ClickToSecure, sold primarily through channel partners, and is ideal for managed security service providers, ISPs, Cloud infrastructure providers, system integrators, and other resellers, who can either use a Cenzic branded or a partner white-labeled version to offer to their customers. Cenzic recently expanded this program globally.

This year's Stevie Award winners will be announced during the annual gala on Monday, June 20 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. More than 600 executives from across the U.S.A. are expected to attend. Details about The American Business Awards and the list of Finalists in all categories are available at
