Unlike other email security solutions that rely on basic antispam, antivirus, and reputation analysis engines, the Websense® Email Security Gateway Anywhere combines the power of Web analysis and data loss prevention to protect against blended attacks. For example, when Websense ThreatSeeker® Network identifies newly infected websites, that intelligence is shared with the email security gateway to prevent email messages containing that URL link from entering the organization.
The Web can be dangerous ground, especially when you don’t know what’s behind a seemingly innocent link. Now, with ACEInsight you can get the scoop on any URL by leveraging Websense’s visibility into today’s threats. It’s a free service and it’s only a click away.
Block it or allow it? Social networking security just isn’t that simple. You need content-level granularity to decide what exactly users should and shouldn’t access. And that’s a whole new spin that Websense has put on Web security.
The social Web is indeed the new Web — and a big target for mal-intents. So to harness its power, you need to build up your defenses in the three areas that matter most: acceptable use policy control, malware protection and data loss prevention. Only then can you embrace the social Web with true abandon.
The social Web phenomenon is now a top security concern among enterprise CIOs and CISOs. Many technologies powering social Web technology pose serious risks to enterprises and SMBs, as employees spend increasing amounts of time sharing data, accessing rich Web applications, and mixing consumer-based and enterprise technology.
