Websense and Leading Technology Partners Tackle Security Challenges of Evolving Networks

Websense expands TRITON Security Alliance and world's largest security intelligence network with strategic partner integrations

SAN FRANCISCO - February 26, 2013 - Websense, Inc.(NASDAQ: WBSN), a global leader in protecting organisations from the latest cyber attacks and data theft, today announced the continued expansion and success of the Websense® TRITON™ Security Alliance with top technology partners including Aruba Networks®, F5® Networks, IBM®, Imperva®, Microsoft®, VMware® and more. Websense and participating TRITON Security Alliance members are building applications that incorporate security intelligence as a fundamental component of advanced networks, mobile and cloud-based applications.

“Our partners look to Websense for the most effective security in the industry that provides real-time protection against advanced threats and data theft,” said Ryan Windham, senior director of corporate development for Websense. “Together, with our partners, we share the vision of security that is coordinated, proactive, dynamic and offers shared situational analysis. Our TRITON Security Alliance partners lead their respective categories with innovation in areas such as network infrastructure, software defined networks, mobility, user rights management, and governance, risk and compliance.”

Mobility and the cloud are creating a borderless enterprise where users connect and interact with web-based applications without being on the corporate network. The network itself is changing by becoming programmable and dynamically adapting to virtualised datacentres and elastic workloads. This shift necessitates security that is flexible, dynamic, and part of the network fabric - no matter where users and data reside.

Key technology partners have turned to the TRITON Security Alliance because real-time Websense security intelligence, delivered through the cloud, can be easily woven into their platforms to prevent advanced threats, malware, phishing attacks, lures and scams.

The Websense ThreatSeeker™ Intelligence Cloud and Websense ACE (Advanced Classification Engine) are the foundation of the company’s deep security intelligence. The Websense ThreatSeeker™ Intelligence Cloud, the world’s largest threat intelligence network, collects and manages up to five billion inputs per day from more than 900 million global endpoints. This real-time clearinghouse of threat information also expands through a bi-directional exchange of security intelligence with industry partners.

“Security is paramount to the Aruba unified access portfolio” said Peter Cellarius, vice president of business development and partnerships, Aruba Networks. “Securing wireless for mobility requires more than static point solutions. Websense recognises that and collaborated with us to create a seamless integration between their industry-leading TRITON architecture and our Mobile Virtual Enterprise (MOVE) architecture. Customers can now get the full value of Websense’s cloud-based content security for distributed organisations and with Aruba Instant and the Aruba Activate service, the first comprehensive, zero-touch, controllerless WLAN solution that meets the security, resiliency and scale requirements of a distributed enterprise.”

“VMware is creating the platform for the software-defined data centre that can further enhance operational efficiency, drive more agility, and provide the extensibility required to rapidly respond to business needs,” said Dean Coza, director, product management, security products, VMware. “Our ongoing work with Websense can enable VMware customers to incorporate essential security intelligence in the core of the network to help secure data and applications for end users.”

“Windows Server 2012 Dynamic Access Control provides a powerful new way to protect vital data by basing user entitlements on regular expressions that evaluate attributes including information content, user identity, groups, etc. This adds to customers’ ability to control access to sensitive and confidential information,” said Andrew Conway, director, server and tools marketing, Microsoft. “Websense provides an advanced automatic content classification plug-in that helps customers automatically classify data when it’s created.”

“Organisations need to identify and protect sensitive data stored in files, such as regulated information, intellectual property and details about business deals,” said Mark Kraynak, senior vice president of worldwide marketing, Imperva. “Websense Data Discover delivers file classification information which, when combined with Imperva SecureSphere policies, makes SecureSphere File Security solutions the best choice for securing sensitive files.”

“IBM QRadar provides best-in-class data collection, analysis, correlation and auditing capabilities for next-generation security management,” said Michael Loria, vice president of business and corporate development, IBM. “The threat detection and data loss incidents from Websense provide critical security intelligence that illuminates threats that might otherwise go unnoticed."

Warning: Tips for secure mobile holiday shopping

I’m dating myself, but I remember when holiday shopping involved pouring through ads in the Sunday paper, placing actual phone calls from tethered land lines to research product stock and availability, and actually driving places to pick things up. Now, holiday shoppers can do all of that from a smartphone or tablet in a few seconds, but there are some security pitfalls to be aware of.
