SC Magazine Readers Select Websense as One of the Best Security Companies

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - November 24, 2010) - Saying that you have the trust of your customers is one thing, proving it is entirely different, which is why Websense, a global leader in unified Web security, data security and email security solutions, is proud that it has been named a finalist in multiple categories in the 2011 SC Magazine Awards. Websense® Web Security Gateway was named a finalist in the Best Anti-Malware Gateway and Best Web Content Management Product categories in the Reader Trust Award category, which honors best-in-class security products and services, as determined by SC Magazine readers. Websense was also recognized in the Excellence Award category for Best Security Company, which acknowledges companies with superior security products that help customers tackle today's pressing security challenges.

Websense products were selected from hundreds of entries submitted in more than 31 technology categories. Finalists will be reviewed and winners will be chosen by the wide distribution of SC Magazine readers -- security and technology experts from large, medium, and small enterprises from all major vertical markets.

"Websense innovations illustrate the passion and creativity the IT security industry is taking to protect valuable assets and interests," says SC Magazine Editor-in-Chief Illena Armstrong. "At the end of the day it's about protecting business, and Websense was named a finalist because of their contribution to this effort."

In its 14th year, the information security industry's most prominent accolade, the annual SC Awards showcase the best solutions, services, and professionals while recognizing achievement and technical excellence. SC Magazine distinguishes the achievements of the security professionals in the trenches, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities and the passionate work of government, commercial and nonprofits -- all working to help improve global security.

"Our continued delivery of the best unified content solutions has gained Websense the trust of our customers, and we thank them for this recognition," said Devin Redmond, vice president of product management, marketing, and business development, Websense. "Our investment has been significant, but the results are clear: make it easier for our customers to manage unified Web, data, and email security as an appliance, as a Security SaaS, or as a hybrid of both through a single, unified interface, regardless of whether users are in the office, mobile, or at a satellite location. Those unified modules increase functionality without increasing complexity to deliver more value, compared to the rest of the industry where consolidating functions often means losing and compromising best-of-breed capabilities. This level of effectiveness allows our customers to defend themselves from today's threats in ways that other solutions simply can't match."

Winners of this year's SC Magazine Awards will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony to be held in San Francisco on Tuesday, February 15, 2011.
