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.
“This recognition of Cenzic Mobile as a CODiE Awards finalist is further market validation for Cenzic and Cenzic Mobile’s product innovation, vision, and the industry impact,” said Cenzic CMO, Bala Venkat. ”The number of mobile applications developed today is staggering, which presents a new set of security challenges with rapidly changing threat vectors. We recommend that enterprises implement continuous mobile application security assessments to protect and ensure the highest levels of application integrity.”
“The CODiE Awards competition was extremely competitive this year, and all of the finalists should be commended for their innovative products and services,” said Rhianna Collier, VP for the Software Division at SIIA. “We look forward to honoring the winners at our awards program in May at All About the Cloud.”
