iViZ a leading provider of Cloud based Application Penetration Testing, today announced that it has been identified as a sample vendor in the Gartner "Hype Cycle for Application Security" report in the following two categories:

  • Bikash Barai, CEO, iViZ Security – "At iViZ we are committed towards providing highest quality application security testing over the cloud. We believe, Gartner naming iViZ as a sample vendor reinforces our commitment towards our vision to serve our customers better"

    Gartner provides "High" as benefit rating under the "Application Security as a Service" category and cites several advantages like reduction of upfront costs as well as augmentation of limited internal resources. The report also highlights other benefits like higher accuracy and speed of adoption.

    iViZ Security, is a pioneer in cloud based Application Penetration Testing service for web applications. Unlike scanners which lack in quality and consultants who are expensive, iViZ delivers consultant grade quality testing in a SaaS based, cost effective subscription model. iViZ provides a "Zero False Positives guarantee" and advanced business logic testing with 100% WASC class coverage by leveraging its patent pending "hybrid approach" that integrates automation with manual testing by security experts.

    Ethical hacking or formally, "Penetration Testing" is considered mandatory by government regulations, compliances like PCI, SOX, HIPAA, ISO-27001 etc. However, "Consultant based Penetration Testing is not just costly, but also impossible to scale since there aren't enough human on earth to test the 600 million online websites. At iViZ, our vision is to help organizations stay one step ahead of hackers by making penetration testing scalable and affordable through technological innovations," says BikashBarai, CEO, iViZ.

    More than 300 customers worldwide use iViZ for greater quality, scalability and cost effectiveness including several marquee names like 2 of the top 3 telecommunications companies, 2 of the top 5 IT Service Providers, and 2 of the Top 10 banks.
