Cenzic Joins The Rackspace Cloud Tools Program
Campbell, Calif. – July 14, 2011 — Cenzic Inc., the leading provider of Web application security assessment and risk management solutions, today announced it has entered into the Cloud Tools Program with Rackspace® Hosting, (NYSE: RAX), the world’s leading specialist in the hosting and cloud computing industry. Rackspace Cloud customers can access Cenzic’s ClickToSecure Cloud solution through the Cloud Tools Program, an affordable Web application security solution that allows users to test their websites for vulnerabilities and conduct quick assessments entirely in the cloud.
“The myriad of recent hacker attacks and security breaches on numerous sites from Sony to U.S. Senate should be a wake-up call about the importance of testing Web applications for security holes,” said John Weinschenk, president and CEO for Cenzic. “ClickToSecure Cloud was designed to take the guesswork out of the equation, allowing organizations with zero Web security expertise to ensure their websites are both protected from hackers and compliant with industry regulations. We are excited to now make our tool available to the Rackspace community.”
With ClickToSecure Cloud, Rackspace customers have the ability to select different types of Web application vulnerability options that will detect “holes” or vulnerabilities in their website – from a standard “HealthCheck” to one that provides PCI 6.6 assurance. The offering is a fast, cost-effective way to improve website security posture without having to become a security expert.
“We are pleased to have Cenzic join the Rackspace Cloud Tools Program,” said Nishan Sivathasan, director of corporate development for Rackspace. “The ClickToSecure Cloud solution offers Rackspace customers a simple option to increase the security around their Web applications.”
