Websense Data Security Gateway and Citrix NetScaler for SDN Overview

The dynamic nature of cloud services requires a level of app-awareness, control and flexibility that go beyond the capabilities of today's data center networks. Enterprise core security concerns are shifting from malware to data protection.

Websense and Citrix have teamed up to jointly deliver Data Security Gateway on the next generation NetScaler SDX platform that powers NetScaler for SDN. Together they will provide consolidated, best-in-class L4-7 networking services and data protection, as well as app-awareness, control and flexibility to today's networks and tomorrow's SDNs on an open and unified platform.

A single data breach or theft can negatively impact the direction of a company. Leveraging the NetScaler for SDN, powered by the next-generation of SDX platform comes with peace of mind that confidential data can be protected from loss or theft with Websense Data Security Gateway.

Over 1,600 policies and templates selected by region and country provide regulatory compliance for cloud based apps deployed within the SDX Unity fabric of software defined networking (or SDN).

Data-in-motion flows through Data Security Gateway as part of the AppTemplate application control layer to monitor and prevent registered and structured data loss, plus policy and template controls for regulatory compliance. Automated notifications remind users of policy rules to reduce the rate of occurrence for violations, plus all incidents are tracked via an audit log.
