Websense Web Security
Websense Web Security, provides extensive, multilayered protection from Web-based threats with a combination of Websense Web Protection Services and ThreatSeeker Network to guard websites and servers and continually scan the Internet for emerging threats. The product has comprehensive reporting capabilities, detailed policy creation and enforcement features and impressive threat detection capabilities, according to consumers, who touted it as a bronze medal winner.
"The trend is definitely towards multifunction one-box appliances as everyone is looking to save power and space, as well as reducing the need for administrators experienced with a range of different vendors' products. There are so now many threat vectors and Internet-based communication channels that being able to manage policy settings and generate reports from one device makes life simpler for security teams. The clients I talk to are interested in Data Leakage Prevention functionality as sensitive data-in-motion has become a big concern with the growth of social networking sites. Real-time reporting of potential policy abuse is being used to deliver direct warnings to culprits so users are aware that policies are being enforced." -- Mike Cobb, managing director, Cobweb Applications
