By creating a custom scanning portal, Cenzic guides partners through the process of certifying the applications they integrate with on your website to ensure they meet pre-defined security standards.
"Virtually every enterprise is part of a vast supply chain that involves many participants. Yet, most of these organizations build their cyber security defenses as if they are islands," said Bala Venkat, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of Cenzic. "Today, enterprises must go beyond their own internal firewalls and look more closely at the shared infrastructure. Cenzic PASS™ offers enterprises a new, customizable approach to manage online risk and certify the security standards of their partner applications, benefiting both the enterprise and the partner in the face of malicious attacks."
Cenzic PASS™ offers a full suite of services including:
- Accurate cloud-based scanning services to test the vulnerabilities in integrated partner applications.
- Consulting Services to help define the application security certification standards needed by partners.
- Customization of portal, policy, database, and all automated emails that usher application owners through certification.
- An Administration Dashboard that displays the scanning status and allows you to efficiently manage outcomes.
- Detailed Vulnerability Reports sent to partners, who can then opt to work directly with Cenzic for any remediation.
Cenzic's partner and vendor application security service provides a cost-effective and efficient certification process ensuring that all third-party applications integrated with an enterprise have minimal vulnerabilities.
