Cenzic Managed Cloud offers Cloud, Mobile and Web application assessments remotely. The service is ideal for businesses with minimal resources and budgets because it's hassle free—no software, no hardware and no installation needed. Cenzic's Managed Cloud dashboard is an easy-to-use platform that allows users to manage Cloud, Mobile and Web application security risks throughout an enterprise. The dashboard is highly customizable and offers role-based visibility which allows a company to manage the access and permissions for different employees throughout different departments and levels.

Cenzic's products are built from the ground up on a revolutionary technology platform. Its intelligent behavioral technology is the first to use behavioral, dynamic and learning algorithms to ensure the highest accuracy for automated assessment of even the most complex applications. Cenzic's products go beyond the standard signature-based approach, unlike its competitors, to emulate a true hacker with an approach that maintains the state of the application while attacking the application at the browser level. Its non-signature based approach makes Cenzic the most accurate in the industry, yielding fewer false positives—less than one percent—and discovering more "real" vulnerabilities. Cenzic has 125 policies which protect against 500,000 potential attack combinations. Cenzic also allows customers to prioritize Cloud, Mobile and Web application vulnerabilities based on a unique scoring system called a HARM (Hailstorm Application Risk Metric), giving users the chance to compartmentalize their risks. 

"We're honored to receive this important award recognizing our product," said Bala Venkat, chief marketing officer at Cenzic. "This endorsement further demonstrates our commitment to deliver solutions for conducting accurate, cost-effective application security scanning and testing for the life of applications. We continue to lead the market by providing the latest technologies to organizations to ensure their applications are free from vulnerabilities—whether they are Cloud, Web or Mobile."

Cenzic recently announced a partnership with Symantec to integrate Cenzic Enterprise on Hailstorm Platform with Symantec's Control Compliance Suite 11. Cenzic also announced an upgrade to its Cenzic Enterprise software, giving employees the ability to get access to automated deep scanning tools from anywhere. In addition, Cenzic Enterprise 7.1 offers centralized visibility and objective risk scoring via thin client extensions to allow businesses to more easily manage the entire web security lifecycle and remediate risks.
