Higher Education Application Security Challenges

Cenzic Application Security Solutions for Higher Education

Application Security to Protect Data and Meet Regulatory Requirements
Higher Education relies on Cloud, Mobile and Web applications to run their organizations as well as to interact with students, educators, staff, alumni and vendors. But, these applications are at constant risk of exploitation by hackers, because of security vulnerabilities. Cenzic's application security enables Higher Education Institutions to minimize security risk, attain compliance and better protect sensitive data.

Cenzic Solutions for Cloud, Mobile and Web Application Security
Cenzic's application security solutions help agencies comply with various higher education regulations, by allowing them to use automated processes to test for vulnerabilities in Cloud, Mobile and Web applications. Cenzic assesses risk, checks for vulnerabilities as well as tests code and controls during software development for the purpose of preventing unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure of personal information.

Adhere to Compliance Requirements
Higher Education must comply with a long list of regulations for managing security and IT risk. Cenzic has created categories of attacks addressing multiple compliance, security and privacy regulations. It checks for vulnerabilities associated with unauthorized access or disclosure of sensitive data, such as personal information and thousands of other vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers to compromise higher education systems. By simply selecting a regulation category, higher education agencies can identify which sections of the regulation they are not in compliance with and take necessary correction action.

Cenzic has mapped higher education compliance requirements to vulnerabilities that are most common in Cloud, Mobile and Web applications. Scanning applications with Cenzic shows how well they meet the regulation requirements and, if problems are found, Cenzic provides detailed information on how to remediate discovered vulnerabilities.
