WhiteHat Security Appoints ConZebra as Exclusive APAC Strategic Partner
Nov. 27, 2012 08:30 PM
Kuala Lumpur, Nov 28, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - CONdition Zebra, inc. (aka "CONZebra"), has been officially appointed by U.S.-based WhiteHat Security, the recognized leading web security company, as the company's exclusive strategic partner throughout key Asia Pacific regions, and has been classified as a "Preferred Partner" for the region.
"We couldn't be more thrilled to have a partner like WhiteHat Security," said CONZebra President and COO, Drew Williams. "CONZebra looks at our relationship with WhiteHat as a very strategic advantage in the fast-growing Asia Pacific sector, as we combine the industry's highest rated web app security solution with our own security risk and critical infrastructure solutions and services."
WhiteHat Security, which offers a real-world perspective on website risk management through real-time, comprehensive website vulnerability scanning, implements what Gartner Group considers to be "an early pioneer in dynamic application security testing solution, with a strong reputation and momentum for its testing-as-a-service model."
"Whether we like it or not," said WhiteHat's founder and CTO, Jeremiah Grossman, "There are some unsavory people out there who will try to hack into our website(s). History and headlines prove that no business, school, government, or personal blog is off limits and out of harms way. And since the vast majority of websites are riddled with exploitable vulnerabilities, the odds of a bad guy finding a way to break in is in their favor - increasingly so with each passing day."
With a Gartner-endorsed backing, and currently thousands of websites currently under the monitoring and assessment care of the WhiteHat/CONZebra solution, Williams believes the time is essential to enter the Asian sector. "Asia, and Southeast Asia, and the greater APAC region including Australia, are powerful influences in cross-industry sectors of technology, communications, environment and essential commodities," he said from his Malaysia offices. "The need for compliance-related solutions to fortify a strong, safe web presence, without fear of creating greater security risks to organizations has been just a matter of focus, time and resources. Now we have a solution for the region."
During its initial launch period, which is expected to last through March 2013, CONZebra and WhiteHat are offering no-obligation sector-specific, real-time security assessments to as many organizations as possible. "This is an essential offering to show organizations where they are with respect to their own industries and how they are doing from a risk management perspective," said CONZebra's Chairman and MD, Wilson Wong.
Condition Zebra (aka "CONZebra"), is headquartered in the United States (Utah), with its APAC headquarters located outside Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and additional offices being opened in Australia, Taiwan and Thailand. CONZebra's Wong adds, "Our strategies of combining the power of a proven cloud-based web solution like WhiteHat Sentinel, with our local team of experts in GRC and critical infrastructure will serve Southeast Asia, as policy mandates and infrastructure concerns become greater issues to address."
WhiteHat was founded by Grossman, former Yahoo! Information security officer, in 2001, with what the Silicon Valley-based company claims to be a "radically better application security platform for identifying, assessing and protecting all applications (even ones you didn't know existed), whether it's 100, 1,000 or 10,000 of the most complex Web and mobile apps in the most heavily regulated industries."
