Forrester: Websense Alone Leads the Content Security Suite Market
Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN) today announced that according to a new report -- The Forrester Wave™: Content Security Suites, Q2 20091 – Websense “alone leads the content security suite market because of its current functionality and suite-oriented product strategy.”
In the report, Forrester Research Principal Analyst Chenxi Wang, Ph.D wrote: “Websense is the Leader in content security suites. Websense has mature products in both email and Web. Moreover, Websense’s Secure Web Gateway has broad control over many different content protocols, for which they are either able to detect-and-block or regulate communicating parties, attachment policies, and specific content types. Websense also earned kudos for its integration with data security capabilities — the former PortAuthority technology — which provide protocol-agnostic policies and content classification functionality. More importantly, Websense delivers an excellent integrated threat analysis capability through its ThreatSeeker™ technology, which is behind all its content security products.”
Websense was the only company Forrester has named a leader in all three content security categories: Web, email and data security. Specifically, Websense was named a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Web Filtering, Q2 20092, The Forrester Wave™: Email Filtering, Q2 20093, and The Forrester Wave™: Data Leak Prevention, Q2 20084.
“Websense is uniquely positioned to help businesses manage compliance, productivity and liability risks while improving visibility, control and efficiency of users, data and content-oriented protocols,” said Devin Redmond, vice president of product management. “Companies today are looking to consolidate budget and vendors, and the Websense suite of focused and innovative content security offerings provides a compelling and cost-effective solution.”
