Content filtering award for Websense.

Forcepoint : 31 October, 2007  (New Product)
SurfControl acquisition instrumental in content filtering recognition for Websense from Frost and Sullivan.
Websense hs announced that the global growth consulting company Frost & Sullivan has awarded Websense the 2007 Award for Market Leadership in Content Filtering solutions. Frost & Sullivan estimates that Websense has more than 28 percent of the $650 million Web filtering market, and a growing 10 percent of the overall $1.8 billion content filtering market - reaffirming Websense's leadership in content protection solutions.

'Without reservation, Websense will remain the leader in content protection for years to come,' said Terrence Brewton, research analyst, Frost & Sullivan. 'We believe the SurfControl and PortAuthority acquisitions plus internal development and innovation will allow Websense to accelerate its market share lead to more than twenty percent of the content filtering market over time. We believe that the Websense acquisitions will allow Websense to outpace larger security vendors Symantec and McAfee in content protection.'

This award is presented each year to the company that has demonstrated excellence in capturing market share within their industry. The recipient has demonstrated strategic excellence in product innovation, marketing, and sales strategies that have resulted in the largest gain in market share over the past 2-3 years. To choose the recipient of this award, the analyst team tracks market share gain, increase in sales, and brand awareness efforts within the industry. This is accomplished through interviews with market participants, end-user studies, and extensive secondary research. 'The user, information and Internet intelligence provided by Websense technologies provides 'Intelligent Content Protection' by enabling organisations to set security policies based on who and what go where and how, in effect securing themselves at the intersection of their people, business process and technology,' added Brewton.

The analyst report attributes Websense's technological success to its unique blend of security technologies and delivery platforms, including:.

ThreatSeeker technology -- Rather then depending on patches and signature-based malware protection, Websense uses its patent-pending ThreatSeeker technology, which uses mathematical algorithms to analyse logical behaviour that signifies known or unknown malicious software such as spyware. By making use of ThreatSeeker, Websense Web Security Suite has the speed and intelligence to respond and prevent known and unknown attacks to the enterprise.

Information Leak Prevention -- While ThreatSeeker is the external gatekeeper that prevents malicious software and other threats from entering the enterprise, PreciseID is the internal gatekeeper that indexes enterprise content for its sensitivity. Websense Content Protection Suite can apply special rules for handling to ensure that the release of information is authorised and is transmitted securely.

On-Demand Security Services -- The in-the-cloud messaging reputation system acquired from SurfControl strengthens Websense's content protection capabilities, resulting in comprehensive security across all relevant areas of business communication.
