Cenzic Partners With Security On-Demand to Deliver Web Application Security Through the Cloud

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - November 17, 2010) - Cenzic Inc., the leading provider of Web application security solutions, today announced a partnership with Security On-Demand, a leading managed security service provider of Cloud-based compliance and security solutions, which helps organizations maintain compliance with industry regulations, manage risk, and protect themselves from security threats.

Through this partnership, Security On-Demand will leverage Cenzic's proven technology for testing and identifying security defects at the Web application level, where over 75 percent of hacking attacks occur, to report on vulnerabilities before they are exploited by hackers.

Unveiled earlier this year, Cenzic ClickToSecure Cloud is a completely Cloud-based Web application security assessment solution. With this cloud platform, Cenzic has created a robust and effective application security solution that can be utilized by its managed security partners to help secure an organization's applications and become compliant with regulations such as PCI DSS 2.0.

Security On-Demand™ utilizes Cenzic ClickToSecure Cloud technology as an integral part of their Hybrid Cloud Security Model, which leverages the best of both Cloud-based and customer premises-based security architectures. The solution is delivered as part of Security On-Demand's managed vulnerability scanning offering, and will be branded as "Scans On-Demand for Web Applications."

Cenzic ClickToSecure, sold primarily through channel partners, is ideal for managed security service providers who can either use a Cenzic branded or a partner white-labeled version to offer to their customers.

"Partners like Security On-Demand have a deep understanding of their customer's security environments and a strong sense of how Cenzic's technology can be incorporated as another defense against hacker attacks," said John Weinschenk, CEO of Cenzic. "Furthermore, the ability our partners have to provide complimentary services like managed Web Application Firewalls and additional Cloud-based security services brings added value in terms of cost-effective and comprehensive security protection and compliance services to businesses of all sizes."

"We are very excited to have Cenzic as a partner and to incorporate ClickToSecure Cloud technology into our Hybrid Cloud-based managed security architecture. We are very confident in the technology Cenzic provides and are enthusiastic to be able to help address the rapidly growing risks increasingly present within web applications," said Peter Bybee, President and CEO of Security On-Demand. He added, "The incorporation of ClickToSecure Cloud into our portfolio of Cloud and premises-based managed security solutions will help lower the total cost of ownership, improve scan accuracy and enhance the depth and breadth of our other managed security services."
