Websense Wins 2008 Redmond Magazine Reader's Choice Triple Crown Award

Magazine's Readers Honor Websense Software for the Third Year in a Row

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - November 12, 2008) - Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN), a global leader in integrated Web, data and email security solutions, announced today that Redmond Magazine has named Websense® a "Triple Crown" winner for receiving a Reader's Choice Award for the last three years. Most recently, Websense® Web Filter won the 2008 Redmond Magazine Reader's Choice Award for Best Web Usage Monitor with more than 35 percent of the vote.

The winners of the 2008 Reader's Choice Awards, which appear in the November issue of Redmond Magazine, are presented to vendors in more than 40 different categories of information technology products, ranging from security to network management.

The publication notes, "There's no stopping Websense Enterprise [now called Websense Web Filter], which stormed to a Triple Crown by a large margin over the two products that trailed it."

In September, Websense unveiled Websense Web Filter version 7, the newest version of its industry-leading Web security and Web filtering solutions. New enhancements include a new Web-based graphical user interface with drill-down reporting that gives administrators unprecedented visibility and control over their networks and policy enforcement. Current Websense Web Filter and Web Security customers can upgrade to version 7 for free.

All Websense solutions are powered by the Websense ThreatSeeker™ Network which continuously monitors the Internet for changes and emerging threats. The resulting intelligence is immediately incorporated into the company's Web, data and email security solutions. As a result, Websense solutions adapt to the rapidly changing Internet threat environment at speeds not possible by traditional security solutions.
