Cenzic Partners With OpSource to Offer Customers Fast and Effective Web Application Security Solutions

Cenzic's ClickToSecure Cloud Service Is Now Available for Any Company on the OpSource Platform to Proactively Use Against Cybercrime at an Affordable Cost

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 27, 2011) - Cenzic Inc., the leading provider of Web application security vulnerability assessment and risk management solutions, and OpSource, Inc., Dimension Data's wholly-owned enterprise cloud and managed hosting business, today announced that Cenzic has become a Validated Cloud Solution Provider. As a result of this partnership, OpSource clients now have access to Cenzic's ClickToSecure Cloud solution, an affordable Web application security service that allows users to test their websites for vulnerabilities and conduct quick assessments entirely in the cloud.

"Websites get hacked every day including big brands like Sony, Nintendo, the CIA, Citibank, and the US Senate. According to Gartner, over 97 percent of websites are vulnerable to cyber-attack," said John Weinschenk, president and CEO of Cenzic. "Cenzic ClickToSecure Cloud helps secure websites from hackers in a fast, easy, and cost-effective way, with no security expertise needed. Partnering with OpSource allows us to expand and extend this leading-edge service to a broader audience."

With ClickToSecure Cloud, OpSource clients have the ability to select different types of Web application vulnerability options that will detect "holes" or vulnerabilities in their website -- from a standard "HealthCheck" to one that provides PCI 6.6 assurance. The offering is a fast, cost-effective way to improve website security posture without having to become a security expert.

"Together we offer our joint clients a pre-integrated and pre-tested solution that addresses organizational concerns over securing applications in the cloud," said Jon Beck, SVP of World Channels and Alliances at OpSource. "The ClickToSecure Cloud solution provides clients with a simple option to increase the security around their Web applications so that organizations have the same level of confidence that they have when securing application on their own internal networks."

Offering more than traditional cloud and hosting services, OpSource provides the integration, engineering, marketing and sales support required to launch and scale cloud-based solutions.
