Data loss prevention recognition for Websense

Forcepoint : 10 June, 2008  (New Product)
Forrester Research acknowledges Websense leadership in the field of Data Loss Prevention with Data Security Suite product
Websense has been named a leader in the data leak prevention (DLP) market by Forrester Research (Forrester Wave: Data Leak Prevention, Q2 2008).

The report states that Websense was one of two vendors who "came out on top" because of its strong go-to-market strategy. Websense earned top scores in the areas of strategy, integration and product functionality for monitoring and protecting data-in-motion across the network.

In the report, analysts write, "Content security front runner, Websense, sits atop the DLP market thanks to its balance of first-class product capabilities and solid strategy." The report goes on to say "The company leverages its partnership with Safend to offer a DLP product consisting of both a network appliance and endpoint software… Websense Data Security Suite now protects across data at rest, data in motion, and data in use... The product's analysis engine is language-agnostic and includes templates applicable to many regions… Websense has bold, compelling plans to significantly expand upon its current capabilities as a leading content security vendor."

One of the biggest challenges for companies today is protecting ever increasing amounts of sensitive data. Websense Data Security Suite enables organisations to identify and protect their information when it is at rest, in motion through email traffic, or in use in business documents. Websense Data Security Suite does this by automatically and accurately discovering where sensitive information resides and then applying contextual intelligence - understanding of who is accessing what data, where they are attempting to send it and through which channels - to enforce business policies. The resulting increased visibility over information flows enables customers to improve business processes and better protect their essential information.

"Research in this report shows that data loss prevention is becoming an integral part of organisations' security strategies and broader information management initiatives," said Leo Cole, vice president of marketing, Websense. "Being recognised by Forrester as a leader in this important market, and the accolades Websense Data Security Suite has received from others for helping organisations discover, monitor and protect their valuable information is a testament to the investment we've made and continue to make to protect our customers' essential information."

"As a security and compliance consultancy practice, we have seen a significant increase in the number of organisations looking to discover and protect their confidential digital assets," said Seth Hidek, Principal for Milton Alexander LLC, a solution provider of security technologies and Websense channel partner. "Identifying and mapping the best technologies to address client needs and minimise risk is critical to our business. As a leader in the Forrester Wave for DLP, Websense is a strategic partner whose proven solutions provide significant value to our customers."
