CAMPBELL, Calif., Sept. 11, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Cenzic, the leading provider of application security intelligence to reduce business risk, today announced that its mobile application security assessment offering has been recognized as a finalist in the 2013 American Business Awards (ABA) for "Best New Product or Service – Software – Security Solution."   

The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. This year, more than 3,200 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others.

Finalists were chosen by more than 140 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May and the winners of The American Business Awards will be announced at the ABA's new product and technology awards event on Monday, September 16th in San Francisco. In each award category, there will be Gold, Silver or Bronze Stevie® Award winners.

The Cenzic Mobile service, released in March 2012, scans and analyzes mobile applications and detects vulnerabilities in critical areas, including input validation authentication mechanisms, session security, encryption usage and policy compliance. Many mobile applications are vulnerable to attacks since they connect to databases on the backend. Cenzic's mobile service gives insight across all mobile applications and backend services, providing recommendations on how to reduce risks originating from specific applications, application developers, and businesses. Because of its cloud-based delivery method, Cenzic is the only company in the market that can provide complete remote black box testing for mobile applications without requiring source code or binaries.

"We are thrilled that our mobile application security solution has earned the American Business Awards' recognition for best new software security solution this year," said Bala Venkat, CMO of Cenzic. "Today, hackers find it increasingly easy to attack mobile applications. One vulnerability is all it takes for a major breach. We believe that our Cenzic mobile application security assessments will enable enterprises to improve the integrity of the mobile apps and protect their mobile applications from the onslaught of rapidly changing threat vectors."
