Free Websense TRITON Mashup Delivers Real-Time Website Analysis

SAN DIEGO, July 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Research shows that on the top 1,000 sites you are usually no more than two clicks away from malware. Now consider that more than 70 percent of today's online threats are snuck onto legitimate websites(1). If you want to avoid infection, you need to know what to trust and what to avoid. Websense (NASDAQ: WBSN), who has been analyzing websites and content for more than a decade, is helping with ACEInsight.com, a free service capability of the Websense® TRITON(TM) solution. ACEInsight.com provides instant website safety data. It is a great tool to check out new, unfamiliar, and suspicious sites.
