Websense TRITON Trumps All Vendors Within Independent Security Effectiveness Test

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Miercom, the well-respected worldwide testing service, recently conducted one of the largest independent tests of real-world threat protection capabilities of web security systems. Results show that Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN) demonstrated superior security effectiveness, threat detection and mitigation capabilities over the other tested systems.

The test pitted Websense ® TRITON™ Web Security Gateway Anywhere, powered by the Websense Advanced Classification Engine (ACE), against web security systems offered by Blue Coat ® Systems, Inc., Cisco ®, McAfee ®, Palo Alto Networks™ and FireEye ®, Inc. The results are published and available at Findings clearly prove that Websense demonstrated superior capabilities in the areas of web security effectiveness, modern malware threat stages, data theft and loss protection, malware sandboxing and forensic reporting, and manageability and effectiveness.

"It's clear from our testing that Websense TRITON Web Security Gateway Anywhere has stronger detection capabilities across advanced threat stages," said Robert Smithers, chief executive officer, Miercom. "To truly mimic a real-world environment, we tested 2.2 million open live web requests of an unknown nature. This is a departure from traditional testing methods, which typically use known samples and produce artificially high results compared to real-world experience."

Miercom's methodology allowed each solution to have a fair and equal chance of analyzing, classifying and blocking threats in real-time as they would on a business network. Using an unknown sample is key when identifying crucial security effectiveness metrics against day-to-day and advanced attacks. Attack methods include zero-day exploits, targeted and timed attacks, spear-phishing, lures and redirects hidden in social networking. This research tactic tested predictive defenses that aim to proactively protect users when they click on web links in real time.
