Websense Works With Citrix To Offer Best-in-Class Content Security For Software Defined Networks

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN) extended its content security leadership today by teaming with Citrix to integrate Websense® Data Security Gateway with the next generation NetScaler SDX platform for software defined networks (SDN). Organizations can now secure their critical information from loss and theft, while benefiting from infrastructure consolidation and the deployment agility enabled by today's virtualized datacenters.

"Websense's advanced content security technology is well suited for the next generation NetScaler SDX platform," said Sunil Potti, VP and GM, NetScaler Product Group, Citrix. "We've built the industry's first open platform that unifies L4-L7 network services into a seamless application control layer. We are happy to partner with Websense to bring the power of integrated data leakage protection and advanced security to the SDX platform to address existing and emerging data privacy imperatives in enterprise IT."

Legacy security solutions based on static architectures have not modernized with the virtualized datacenter, which has led to reduced effectiveness and costly management overhead. This new integration unifies renowned Websense data loss prevention (DLP) technologies together with other network services on an open platform, which can be controlled and provisioned through app-driven policies. For organizations to benefit from the flexibility of SDN, they must also be able to dynamically provision vital network security services like DLP.

"Websense is committed to leading the way in product innovation to secure and enable software defined networks," said John McCormack, president, Websense. "We have been at the forefront of the security industry's evolution by delivering innovative TRITON™ solutions, which address the next generation of IT infrastructure, and by aligning ourselves with the right strategic partners. Our plans with Citrix demonstrate that our unique security technology is flexible, agile and able to secure the virtual datacenter fabric to protect organizations from the latest advanced threats and data loss."

The TRITON Data Security Gateway unifies all the key components of threat defense and data theft prevention into a cohesive content security system. It brings together web security, email security, mobile security and DLP defenses 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.
