Websense Recognized as a Leader in Data Leak Prevention Suite Market by Independent Research Firm

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2010) -  With a market-winning strategy, nonstop investment, and the results to show for it, Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN), a global leader in unified Web security, data security and email security with its TRITON solution, has been recognized as a leader in the data leak prevention (DLP) market by Forrester Research, Inc. (The Forrester Wave: Data Leak Prevention Suites, Q4, 2010).(1)

Websense® DLP market approach and strategy focuses on making DLP fast, effective, and hassle-free for customers. The company's market share and growing customer base is proof to the success of Websense's DLP technology in the marketplace. 

According to the independent research report, Websense was one of just two vendors who "led the pack" and was commended for "high levels of refinement, ease of use, and a deep bench of technology partners that they can integrate with."

The report states, "Websense has quietly built the second-largest DLP product company in the industry. Its DLP features for protecting against leaks on unmanaged endpoints are excellent. Its clean and simple interface is geared toward fast installations and time-to-value. Standout features include its "DLP for Download" test drive program, installation wizards, and built-in features that normally cost extra with other vendors, such as USB encryption. Of all the vendors in this Forrester Wave, Websense is the vendor best positioned to cross the chasm into the mass market."

"Websense continues to innovate to solve real customer challenges to protect data," said Devin Redmond, Websense vice president, product management, marketing, and business development. "Creating immediate time-to-effectiveness and the fast time-to-value recognized in the Forrester report have clearly resulted in a happy and growing customer base. From the introduction of DLP for Download, and the unification of DLP into the TRITON system, to our deeply productive relationships with our customers through the TRITON Advisory Board, we are constantly improving our products to provide the best protection against modern threats while removing the time, complexity, and cost barriers that have challenged customers in using DLP."

"The Websense Data Security Suite is simply revolutionary," said Max Grossling, VP at EverBank, and TRITON Advisory Board member. "Do you know how challenging today's regulatory and compliance landscape is? I need to know that I am protecting financial information, nonpublic personal information, and intellectual property from intentional data breaches AND inadvertent data loss. With Websense TRITON and its unified DLP and Web security gateway, there is a much clearer understanding of how data is used, stored, and moves within my company -- while having the control I need to enforce the policies that protect my organization."
