 In addition, this week Cenzic is offering the Cenzic Healthcheck program, a free application vulnerability assessment performed by Cenzic Web security experts using the company's ClickToSecure managed service solution.

To access this free service, businesses must register between October 18 and October 22 at https://www.cenzic.com/assets/hc2010/index.html.

"Cyber Security Awareness Month is an important focal point that brings the industry together to not only raise its collective security knowledge, but to respond to ever increasing and more sophisticated hacker attacks, especially through websites," said John Weinschenk, president and CEO of Cenzic.
