SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA 2013 --Cenzic Inc., the
leading provider of web application security intelligence to reduce security
risks, today announced a partnership with Symantec to integrate Cenzic
Enterprise on Hailstorm Platform with Symantec's Control Compliance Suite11.
The solution will combine web application vulnerability data with security and
risk data on the business systems and processes that support the web
applications, providing a more comprehensive view of an organization's overall
security posture and enabling remediation prioritization based on business
risk impact.

Point solutions that address a specific vulnerability continue to dominate the
security industry. However, organizations that lack the ability to tie
security information from multiple sources end up with a massive list of
security problems too large to be prioritized and too unruly to be actionable.
As a result, organizations are unable to analyze that data to understand the
impact of web applications on the company's overall security posture. The
out-of-the-box integration between Cenzic and Symantec will enable customers
to transfer the application risk data gathered by Cenzic into their security
and risk posture information in Symantec Control Compliance Suite--allowing
customers to map the web application vulnerabilities directly to common
controls, known assets and established business systems. A single report can
demonstrate web application risk by compliance objective (Peripheral Component
Interconnect), by asset type (web storefront), by business process (online
banking), or even by corporate policy initiative. In addition, Cenzic
Enterprise on Hailstorm and Symantec Control Compliance Suite integrate easily
with a pre-packaged installation and data mapping, eliminating the need for
professional services.

"Our partnership with Cenzic highlights the importance of organizations having
a clear view of their risk in today's threat landscape," said Kurt Van Etten,
director of product management, Symantec. "With the Cenzic Enterprise on
Hailstorm Platform integration to Symantec Control Compliance Suite 11, our
mutual customers will have the ability to gain greater control of
vulnerabilities threatening their data, with the tools needed to remediate
risk as it pertains to web applications."

"Symantec and Cenzic recognize the importance of enabling organizations to
incorporate more security data intelligence into their risk and remediation
plans so that they can prioritize the most critical business processes," said
Bala Venkat, chief marketing officer, Cenzic. "Our goal is to help customers
address the most critical problems first and actively work to eliminate the
vulnerabilities enabling a positive security posture for their business."
