Websense® Web Security Gateway solutions are the industry’s leading secure Web gateway solutions, providing the best protection against modern Web threats at the lowest total cost of ownership. They are the only solutions to provide enterprise-class data loss prevention and unified management of hybrid on-premise/Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) deployments. Secure Web gateway solutions enable organizations to leverage the power of Web 2.0 without worrying about malware, inappropriate content, employee productivity, or disclosure of sensitive information.

Web Security Gateway solutions offer:

  • Dynamic and Scripted Web Malware Protection – Real-time security scanning provided by the Websense Advanced Classification Engine protects against legacy file-based attacks as well as Web scripts and dynamic threats that evade traditional antivirus.
  • Web 2.0 Employee Productivity – Real-time content classification from the Advanced Classification Engine removes inappropriate content from complex, dynamic, and password-protected Web 2.0 sites that cannot be accurately classified by traditional URL filtering.
  • Data Loss Prevention and Compliance Controls – The Websense TruWeb DLP™ capability offers enterprise-class Web data loss prevention. It establishes the controls needed to enable outbound communications to destinations like Web mail and social networks while meeting compliance mandates to control disclosure of sensitive data. To see TruWeb DLP in action, check out the demo video.
  • Lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) – The Websense TRITON™ Console and Websense TruHybrid™ deployment reduce the number of appliances, management systems, and vendors that must be supported across the enterprise.
