SAN DIEGO, Dec. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Standing out for effective security in a challenging year for traditional products, Websense has been named a finalist in five separate categories in the 2012 SC Magazine Reader’s Trust and Excellence Awards for product innovation and outstanding leadership and achievement in information security. The Excellence Awards category acknowledges companies with superior security products that help customers tackle today’s pressing security challenges.

“Websense innovations illustrate the passion and creativity the IT security industry is taking to protect valuable assets and interests,” says SC Magazine Editor-in-Chief Illena Armstrong. “At the end of the day, it’s about enabling business, while protecting data, and Websense was named a finalist because of their contribution to this effort.”
Websense Web Security Gateway Anywhere is an Excellence Awards finalist for Best Enterprise Security Solution. SC Magazine readers also recognized Websense excellence in four different Reader’s Trust Award categories, which honor best-in-class security products and services. Websense security solutions were selected from hundreds of entries submitted across 33 categories.
“With today’s eroding security perimeter, companies can’t trust their traditional solutions to prevent data loss because risk exposure has increased dramatically with cloud computing and mobility,” said Jason Clark, chief security officer for Websense. “At the same time, it’s critical that organizations safely enable social media, smart phones, tablets, and cloud applications to stay competitive. A containment defense that analyzes both inbound and outbound communications to block advanced attacks and data theft is the best protection. The Websense TRITON solution plugs the gaps left by traditional security products, and it’s great to have SC Magazine acknowledge what our customers have been telling us.”
In its 15th year, the information security industry’s most prestigious honor, the annual SC Magazine Awards US, showcase the best solutions, services and professionals, while recognizing achievement and technical excellence. SC Magazine distinguishes the achievements of the security professionals in the trenches, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities and the passionate work of government, commercial and nonprofits–all working to help improve global security.
Winners of this year’s SC Magazine Awards US will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony to be held in San Francisco on Tuesday, February 28, 2012.
