Top IT Security Professionals Rate Websense Best in Web Security
SAN DIEGO, Dec. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The web is the quickest route to malware and employees don’t have to go far to get hit by the bad stuff. For the best solutions in a rapidly changing threat environment, IT security professionals often rely on peer suggestions. TechTarget, a top site for security news, facilitates these discussions in their annual survey of the best products. Not surprisingly, WebsenseÃ‚® Web Security Gateway earned the gold medal for Best Web Security Product of 2011.
“For the sixth consecutive year, TechTarget’s security membership voted to determine the best security products,” said Doug Olender, VP of the Security Media Group at TechTarget. “More than 1,500 voters participated this year, rating products in 14 different categories. Our readers have spoken and there is no doubt, Websense Web Security Gateway was the highest rated for effective web security.”
“Online attacks use dynamic delivery, payloads, and call-backs that only last a few minutes before changing to wreak havoc on organizations with static defenses. That’s why inline real-time content analysis and unified security intelligence are absolutely necessary to thwart these and other attacks that use social profiling, spear phishing, social engineering, and blended methods,” said Tom Clare, senior director of product marketing, Websense. “Separate traditional defenses are low hurdles for cybercriminals to step over. Background cloud analysis by itself is passive and often blinded by HTTPS and private social network pages with user-specific credentials. For advanced attack and data theft protection, the game changer is a containment defense that’s in line with multiple real-time defense assessments and provides a composite score, severs communications, and mitigates data loss.”
Featuring embedded enterprise-class data loss prevention for web and email communications and real-time analysis of web content and threats, Websense Web Security Gateway is powered by the Websense Advanced Classification Engine (ACE). ACE is the real-time defense analysis technology that enables Websense TRITON(TM) solutions to deliver the best security effectiveness against advanced attacks and data theft. ACE combines more than 10,000 advanced analytics, which are kept current with real-time updates, to provide composite risk scoring and detect advanced malicious attacks that evade antivirus, firewalls, and other solutions that are far from sufficient.
Websense Web Security Gateway is part of the Websense TRITON(TM) solution, which offers unified web, email, and data security. The TRITON modules are available separately or together, and can be deployed in enterprise-grade appliances, as cloud-based services (SaaS), and as powerful and efficient hybrids of on-premise and cloud elements working together.
