Real-time, data-aware defenses for the large enterprise.

The high performance Websense X10G™ appliance is scalable and secure. To defend against today’s advanced malware and data theft, you need real-time inline defenses and the power to run them. The X10G appliance provides it all, in a blade server/chassis architecture that delivers high density, scalability and performance.


Unmatched Performance and Extensibility

  • Blade server/chassis architecture reduces rack space (10U) and offers multi-gig performance.
  • Scalable to 16 blades (each blade with 12 processing cores, 32 GB RAM and 1.2 TB HDD).
  • 10G network interfaces, four power supplies, chassis management controller and dual internal switches.
  • Base configuration contains two blades (14 open slots enable near-linear scalability with new blades).

Unmatched Real-Time Data-Aware Contextual Defenses

Unmatched Protection Against Advanced Malware And Data Theft

  • Secure web gateways with scalable real-time contextual defenses that surpass traditional AV and URL filtering defenses.
  • Identify threats in email from the most benign scam to APTs and other advanced threats, as well as providing controls for spam and other unwanted email traffic.
  • Helps contain infected systems, block command and control communications, and mitigate data theft associated with drip (behavioral) DLP, custom encrypted files, password files and geo locations.
  • Helps contain infected systems, block command and control communications, and mitigate data theft associated with drip (cumulative) DLP, custom encrypted files, password file theft, analysis of confidential text in images with optical character recognition (OCR), and geo-location destination awareness.
