Trustwave has acquired Cenzic, a company that specializes in web application security solutions. By acquiring Cenzic, Trustwave hopes to enhance its cloud-based security testing platform.
By combining Cenzic’s application security testing technologies with its own cloud-based testing and scanning services, Trustwave hopes to create one of the broadest integrated platforms.
Now that it has Cenzic’s dynamic application testing technologies, which automate the process across all application types (web, mobile and cloud), the company will be capable of delivering both static and dynamic security testing. Organizations that subscribe to Trustwave’s services will be able to secure their applications throughout their entire lifecycle.
“This acquisition brings together two security leaders who understand the power automation brings to managing the aggressive and evasive threats we’re seeing today,” noted Robert McCullen, chairman and chief executive officer at Trustwave.
“Cenzic’s highly automated and scalable security testing platform supercharges our ability to deliver integrated testing across a high volume of applications. This acquisition marks another milestone in Trustwave’s strategy to deliver comprehensive, automated and integrated security, compliance and threat intelligence solutions to the industry-all delivered through the cloud.”
It’s uncertain how much Trustwave has paid for Cenzic. In November 2013, Trustwave bought Application Security for its automated database security scanning technologies.
