Offering partners the industry's first on-demand, end-to-end, automated Penetration Testing solution

Reading, UK, 25h October, 2011- Value-added Distributor, Cloud Distribution Ltd, today announced the signing of a new vendor, iViZ Security, a pioneer in cloud-based Application Penetration Testing. This statement marks a further development in Cloud Distribution’s strategy to offer the Channel disruptive and robust network infrastructure and security solutions that leverage the Cloud.

“Cloud Distribution’s current portfolio reflects a company that specialises in the delivery of sophisticated and innovative cloud-based technologies – solutions that offer real business value. We were impressed by Cloud Distribution’s enthusiasm for our products and its reach and presence in the market, which is why we were keen to work with them,’ comments Kevin Robert, VP Sales for iViZ.

iViZ Security is a leading provider of cloud-based web application penetration testing. iViZ’s Intellectual Property helps it integrate automated scanning using multiple scanners with manual testing undertaken by security experts to provide a cost-effective solution for managing web application security. In effect, organisations can get unlimited testing for the same price of undertaking two consultant-led application security assessments.. iViZ realises that automated scanning alone is not sufficient as it generates many false positives and can miss critical security flaws, e.g. logical flaws which can only be discovered by manual testing, however, regular manual security testing is very expensive and time consuming. Therefore iViZ combines both these approaches to provide comprehensive coverage, accurate findings, as well as on-demand availability in a cost-effective subscription based model.

Cyber security is an ever-present concern for organisations – even more so since the damaging and highly publicised attacks on several leading blue-chip companies. Scott Dobson, co-founder of Cloud Distribution comments that the Channel has been in need of a cloud-based solution like iViZ for some time and explains how its solution can help:

“The increasingly popular trend of organisations using web applications has driven a demand in the Channel to offer a solution that can protect the critical and confidential data that is being used and stored in the Cloud. We like to offer our partners disruptive, simplistic and cost-effective tools that place them in a great position to lead the way for the market and this is exactly what iViZ delivers.”

The signing of iViZ as a new vendor signifies another development in Cloud Distribution’s overall strategy to recruit carefully selected and sophisticated cloud-based technologies that offer channel partners value and revenue at reduced costs. Other solutions in their portfolio include cloud-controlled secure Wi-Fi and routing from leading vendor Meraki; mobile device management courtesy of fromdistance and WAN optimisation from Extreme Networks.
