Websense acquires Defensio

Posted: 27 Jan 2009 01:00 PM | Defensio, the blog | no comments

We are pleased to announce today that Karabunga, Inc., the company behind Defensio, will be joining forces with Websense, Inc . (NSDQ: WBSN ). This is obviously a big day for us and we are very excited to be teaming up with one of the Internet's leading security companies. So what does this mean for you, our beloved users? You can take comfort in knowing that that we currently have no plans to change the existing service -- so just go ahead, keep using Defensio and keep spreading the good word. It is definitely here to stay and will remain free for personal bloggers. Websense has developed some revolutionary technology that we will be able to leverage in the very near future. This means more effective spam filtering for you and some headaches for the bad guys. We'd like send out a huge thanks to everyone (users, developers, bloggers) that has contributed to making Defensio what it is today. Without you, none of this would have been made possible. THANK YOU! If you have not started using our API yet, there has never been a better time to take the plunge. Now with Websense in our corner, the Defensio of tomorrow will be even better! See the official announcement from Websense.
