Cenzic Solution Receives Five Stars in Web Application Security Review

Hailstorm Enterprise ARC Acknowledged as a Superior Solution by CRN Tech

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - November 13, 2007) - Cenzic, the leading provider of application security vulnerability assessment and risk management solutions, today announced that the company has received a five-star review from CRN Tech for Hailstorm® Enterprise ARC™ (Application Risk Controller) 5.0, the most recent version of the company's flagship product line. Hailstorm Enterprise ARC represents the only true application risk-management "superset" in the industry, which in addition to providing the most intelligent and accurate vulnerability management solution, allows integration of results from other application security solutions and manual penetration testing results to provide a unified view to customers.

"CRN Tech recognized that Hailstorm Enterprise ARC 5.0 makes the process of securing applications much smoother and efficient," said John Weinschenk, CEO of Cenzic. "It's a privilege to receive such acclamation by such a respected publication, as we've worked very hard to develop a product that is the most inclusive and precise our customers have come to expect from Cenzic."

Cenzic, who recently signed a cross-licensing agreement with HP, understands that the rate at which applications are being developed and updated in today's organizations is staggering. Web application security measures generally target testing across the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), however there are a significantly larger number of deployed applications in the production environment. Many of the Web applications in use today were deployed without testing, which leaves corporations and their customers vulnerable to attacks. Hailstorm Enterprise ARC 5.0 is designed to address not only Web application vulnerabilities across the SDLC, but also to help with continuous testing in the production stage, an area that can easily make organizations vulnerable to attacks.

CRN Tech, the most influential rising-star in the industry, credited Hailstorm Enterprise ARC with five of five tech stars, and four of five channel stars. In the specific categories, Hailstorm Enterprise ARC also scored five out of five stars in Ease of Use, Features, Price/Performance, Quality/Reliability, and Profit Potential for channel partners. Mario Morejon, technical editor for CRN Tech and the reviewer for this piece, stated, "ARC's graphs simplify the way complex security testing is managed across an enterprise. In addition to testing code, solution providers can use ARC to gain a foothold into other development projects." To view the review in its entirety, please visit
