Corps. Don't Trust Web App Security

In a recent Cenzic survey, data breach is the No. 1 Web application security concern

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Cenzic, Inc., the leading provider of application security vulnerability assessment and risk management solutions, and Executive Alliance, today released the results of a study that examines that state of application security entitled "The Voice of IT Leadership on Web Security: 2007." The survey focuses on security issues and insights affecting the C-level executive, with the results reflecting responses from 476 information security professionals.

The survey uncovered that among executives there is a general lack of confidence in current solutions and methods protecting companies from being hacked, with half of respondents either partially or not at all confident that their current application security methods and solutions can protect their organization's Web site from hackers.

"This survey confirms what we've heard from our customers, that most corporations don't trust that their Web applications are secure," said John Weinschenk, CEO and president of Cenzic. "Companies are struggling to protect their Web applications and they are anxiously working to stay one step ahead of hackers whose efforts become more sophisticated with each attack. Cenzic's role is to provide the software and services that help companies automate the security process and ultimately keep their applications and data secure."
