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."
