Golden Bridge Awards Honor Cenzic, CEO John Weinschenk for Excellence in Application Security

Campbell, Calif. – November 8, 2012Cenzic Inc., the leading provider of web application security intelligence to reduce security risks, today announced that Cenzic CEO John Weinschenk has earned the distinction of Golden Bridge Awards Executive of the Year, Bronze Winner.

The award was bestowed on Weinschenk, who founded Cenzic in 2000, because of the company’s dramatic growth as threats surrounding web-app security have continued to evolve. Under Weinschenk’s leadership, Cenzic has made great strides in securing more than half a million online applications and trillions of dollars of commerce for Fortune 1000 companies, all major security companies, government agencies, universities and SMBs.

“It’s an honor to be recognized as a Golden Bridge Awards’ Bronze Winner and to earn this esteemed industry and peer accolade,” said Weinschenk. “Our number one goal has been to make the world a safer place by helping businesses of all sizes reduce their security risks. This distinction is a testament to Cenzic’s continued dedication and commitment to providing the best Web, Mobile and Cloud application security testing solutions on the market.”

Cenzic’s ascent to the forefront of the web application security testing market has much to do with the company’s innovation, as it is the first company to release a Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) solution for mobile—an announcement that extended the company’s services to analyze mobile applications and detect vulnerabilities, thereby protecting businesses and their data.

In addition to pioneering product offerings, Cenzic has expanded its partnership platform, crafting relationships with Microsoft for its open cloud platform Windows Azure; application delivery networking provider F5 Networks; systems integrators such as Accenture; cloud service provider Rackspace Hosting and several information security solutions resellers.
