Websense A Leader In IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Web Security Products

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN) today announced that top industry analyst firm, IDC, has named the security company a leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Web Security Products report. (1) Thousands of companies rely on Websense ® TRITON™ solutions to protect them from advanced threats and data theft, while enabling them to embrace new technology trends. The report cites "the tight integration among Web security, messaging security and data loss prevention (DLP)" as "another strength of the Websense TRITON architecture."

"Websense leadership in IDC's MarketScape report reflects the company's security effectiveness, breadth of capabilities, range of delivery models and enterprise scalability," said Phil Hochmuth, program manager of Security Products at IDC. "We assessed all the major players in web security. Websense has noteworthy strength in anti-malware web-based threat identification, data theft protection, social media control, web application security and mobile security. All of these factors contributed to Websense's leadership positioning."

As businesses evolve and migrate to cloud, SaaS and mobile technologies, the potential threats also transition. Cybercriminals increasingly combine web threats with sophisticated data-stealing attacks to siphon confidential information from insufficiently protected organizations. These attacks evade the traditional security measures of signature-based antivirus and firewalls, which cannot keep up with today's changing threats.

"Our unique approach to Websense TRITON's real-time web security is validated in this report," said Charles Renert, vice president of the Websense Security Labs™. "Today's sophisticated web threats can no longer be categorized as simple web threats. They use multiple delivery channels that attack email, social networks, mobile devices and network data. Only real-time detection of threats can prevent the successful compromise of an enterprise." 

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 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.
