Websense sures up company defences with new Triton

Vendor takes the wraps off the latest version of its flagship content security product.

Data locked down

Web filtering software provider Websense has rolled out a new version of its data security product Triton.

The company unveiled the 7.7 version of the product at an event in central London yesterday, highlighting its enterprise-friendly features.

Tom Clare, senior director of product marketing at Websense, said seven of the offering's 10 new features were designed to mitigate outbound data risks.

"The biggest difference of 7.7 is providing containment services," Clare said.

"The second biggest thing is its threat dashboard, which will tell you who the attacker is and how they attack."

New features include criminal encryption detection and optical character recognition and forensic data support.

The product also features spear phishing protection with cloud sandboxing, which can be used to identify suspicious links in emails.

Once recipients click on the URL, Websense analyses the website content and browser code in real time to see if it is safe.

"The Websense solutions are affordable to spend. Many of our customers said they saved hundreds of thousands of pounds using Websense on an annual basis," he said.

Some of the product's improvements were made in response to several of the past year's high-profile data loss incidents, Clare revealed.

The vendor also used the event to showcase the Websense Cyber Security Intelligence (CSI) service, a new training program for IT staff that want to work with Wensense's security labs researchers, ahead of its official launch in July.
