SAN DIEGO, Jun 7, 2010 -- Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN) today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned Websense as a leader in its recently released "Magic Quadrant for Content-Aware Data Loss Prevention."(i) The firm evaluated Websense® Data Security solutions, part of Websense TRITON ™ architecture, which unifies content-based security products. Vendors in the Magic Quadrant are selected based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision.
Websense data loss prevention (DLP) solutions, including Websense Data Security Suite are tightly integrated into Websense’s industry-leading Websense Web Security Gateway and Websense Email Security through the Websense TRITON architecture. The infrastructure integrates the real-time content analysis with both inbound and outbound data awareness, to protect organizations and their essential information from blended threats and targeted attacks while easing administration and lowering total cost of ownership.
"We believe that Websense’s inclusion in the Leaders Quadrant for Content-Aware Data Loss Prevention recognizes our continued ability to meet and surpass the data loss prevention needs for organizations today while also demonstrating the strength of our unified TRITON system,” said John McCormack, president, Websense. “Our strategy to unify the full enterprise functionality of the Data Security Suite into our Web and email channels – while simplifying management of these policies through the single management console of the TRITON architecture – offers the most easy to use and effective solution.”
Today Websense revealed newly announced independent testing that confirms Websense® Web Security Gateway Anywhere™ provides the most comprehensive content security protection, besting all other security vendors in real-time detection of advanced modern malware, effectiveness and data loss prevention. Additionally, Websense was positioned as the leader in the Radicati Group Inc., “Corporate Web Security Market Quadrant 2010” above vendors including Blue Coat and Cisco.
Websense brought home five trophies last month, including the ‘Best Enterprise Security’ award for the Websense Web Security Gateway at the European SC Magazine Awards and achieved ‘highly commended’ distinction in four other categories. Websense was the most highly recognised security vendor at the awards designed to honour security professionals and communities that deliver innovative security technologies.
Security experts agree that while new Web 2.0 applications enable greater collaboration and innovation, they can also greatly increase the chance for ID fraud, corporate data loss, and privacy violations. Websense data loss prevention solutions provide unprecedented visibility and control over confidential information to prevent data loss, secure business processes and manage compliance and risk. As part of our Essential Information Protection suite of solutions, Websense Data Security Suite integrates with our Web security solution to provide content, context and destination awareness, allowing administrators to manage who can send what information where and how.
