Cenzic Hailstorm Enterprise ARC Receives High Marks From Information Security Magazine

Leading Web Application Security Solution With Its "Remarkable Interactive Dashboard" Gets Grade "A" for Effectiveness

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - February 3, 2009) - Cenzic Inc., the leading provider of Web application security assessment and risk management solutions, today announced that its flagship product, Cenzic Hailstorm Enterprise ARC , earned top marks from Information Security magazine, a TechTarget publication dedicated to informing security-conscious professionals of the technological advances and practical solutions to security problems.

Conducted by Phoram Mehta of Information Security magazine, the standalone review reflected "the growth in the depth and maturity of Web application vulnerability assessment software." The product was evaluated on a grade scale based on the following categories: installation, configuration, effectiveness and reporting.

The review proclaims Hailstorm Enterprise ARC 5.7 a "true enterprise-class solution for managing Web application vulnerabilities." In the effectiveness category, where the review points to the two areas enterprises spend the most time when using a vulnerability scanner, the home page/central display and the results/reports, Cenzic Hailstorm received an "A" grade. According to the review, "Cenzic has remarkable interactive dashboard that shows trends and activities."

"Today Web application security is more important than ever as hackers increasingly turn to the Web, trolling for unprotected data as a way to make a quick buck," said John Weinschenk, CEO of Cenzic, Inc. "And, with companies storing greater amounts of sensitive information online, protecting that data from hackers becomes a high priority. The Information Security review validates Hailstorm Enterprise ARC as a seamless, user-friendly solution that provides the ability to test, remediate and defend against serious Web application threats."

Since Cenzic uses the a common platform for both its Software (Hailstorm) and its SaaS (ClickToSecure), companies interested in having Cenzic run remote assessments equally benefit from these powerful features.
