SAN DIEGO - November 28, 2012 — Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN) today announced that independent research analyst firm, Forrester Research, Inc. has named Websense® a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Email Content Security, Q4 2012 report. Websense received the highest score in the current offering category of all nine vendors for email security.
The current offering category examined email filtering; data leak prevention; reporting and management; performance and operations; and client scores and feedback, which was evaluated through customer interviews.
The report also notes, “Websense has a strong story regarding hybrid email security deployments. The TRITON architecture enables reporting and management of both on-premises gateways and SaaS from a single console. Customers can also manage web security and DLP solutions from the same interface. TRITON offers a compelling ‘single pane of glass’ option.”
“Websense email security is key to our security arsenal,” said Mark Jackson, information security officer, Westamerica Bank. “It goes beyond status quo email security with unprecedented real-time protection against spam, malicious spear-phishing threats and outbound data theft and loss. The tight integration of email security and data loss prevention technology within the Websense TRITON™ platform significantly reduces our risk of data loss and compliance violations.”
Modern day email threats are targeted and timed to lure users into clicking on malicious links. Once email users click on an embedded link, the TRITON architecture analyses the website content and browser code in real time to ensure safety in any location at any time. Blended attacks require the real-time, in-line defences of Websense ACE (Advanced Classification Engine). ACE analyses threats across seven defence assessment areas and is backed by analytics and security intelligence from the ThreatSeeker Network™.
“Forrester Research conducted an extremely rare, hands-on analysis of current email security technologies. We believe this Forrester Research recognition proves Websense email security goes well beyond ineffective spam and AV solutions,” said John McCormack, president, Websense. “Today’s toughest cybercriminals are using email to directly access and lure key employees so they can steal the crown jewels. Websense is the only security provider that examines website content at point-of-click to stop email threats in real-time, while integrating market-leading DLP to stop data theft.”
Websense TRITON technology unifies all the key components of threat protection and data theft prevention into a cohesive content security system. It brings together web security, email security, mobile security and DLP defences with unified security intelligence and a unified management console. TRITON solutions can be deployed on enterprise-grade appliances, as cloud-based services, and as powerful and efficient hybrids of on-premise and cloud elements working together.
