Websense Releases App for iPhone and iPad

On-the-Move Security Professionals Get the Latest Security Intelligence as They Embrace the Cloud, Mobile Devices, and Social Media

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 15, 2011) - RSA CONFERENCE - BOOTH #1129 (NASDAQ: WBSN) In 2011, IT is struggling to secure corporate content on social media channels, on mobile devices and in the cloud -- while enabling these new platforms. In recognition of these major trends and to leverage all three hot-button issues, Websense has created a new iPhone and iPad app designed to help customers and partners stay up to date on the latest security risks and get support for Websense® solutions, all with powerful functionality that is uniquely available through Websense.

Available for free through iTunes and the Apple Store, the application lets security professionals stay in the know and receive support for Websense security solutions wherever they are. The Websense iPhone and iPad app provides Websense-unique up-to-the-minute threat information, breaking insights on advanced threats, and access to the Websense Knowledge Base and top support articles, Tech Alerts, product demos and upcoming events.

This new app is part of the Websense Customer First Initiative, a three-pronged program that includes enhanced tools, support, training, and education to help customers achieve the best security at the lowest total cost of ownership.

With the free Websense app, IT security professionals can:

  • Follow the latest security threats. The app streams of some of the latest and most useful videos from security experts on emerging threats and cutting-edge security technology.
  • Check out the safety of websites. Because the Web is dynamic and security professionals can't always get to their desktop tools, the Websense app includes a powerful proprietary site lookup tool. Exclusive to Websense, the tool provides website scanning services via Websense ThreatSeeker™, for "know before you go" security. You can also enter favorite sites and get alerted if they become infected.
  • Receive support for Websense solutions. Access to Websense product documentation and support resources for Websense solutions are also right at hand with the app, along with a contact form for fast, easy access to Websense sales, marketing and support.

In addition, the app includes a security blog roll, a customizable security blog aggregator that is pre-populated with the Websense Security Labs™ blog as well as a handful of other top blogs and can be customized by the user.
