Enterprise-class threat protection and data loss prevention (DLP) technology deployed on an appliance.

Websense® Email Security Gateway protects against traditional and modern threats, data theft and data loss for the email channel. It is deployed on a Websense V-Series™ appliance.

Top Features

  • Gateway threat analysis uses security intelligence from the Websense ThreatSeeker® Intelligence Cloud and Websense ACE (Advanced Classification Engine) to defend against advanced malware, blended threats and spam.
  • Websense TruEmail DLP™ capability offers enterprise-level protection against data theft and data loss for email. It includes natural language processing, data fingerprinting, mobile email DLP, incident forensics reporting and more than 1,600 built-in templates for compliance to prevent confidential data from leaving the corporate network via email. Advanced features such as protection from slow data theft (Drip DLP); geolocation destination awareness (limiting where data can be sent); detection of custom-encrypted uploads and password file data theft; and optical character recognition (OCR of text contained within images) machine learning are also available.
  • File Sandboxing, available as part of TRITON ThreatScope, protects you from advanced malware delivered as an email attachment. Suspicious files are analyzed in a virtual environment, looking far deeper than simple file execution, to provide the highest level of protection from advanced malware. Detailed forensic reporting is provided when malicious files are detected.
