Websense debuts unified security architecture

Websense Tuesday announced Triton, a unified security architecture, which merges its data-loss prevention and e-mail security products, keeping much of the security-as-a-service approach it already supports, but with a common management and reporting console.

"It's a unified platform of the systems we have for content security, with a single management and single policy to open up visibility," says Dave Meizlik, director of product marketing at Websense. "It will assess risk more clearly."

As its first product under the Triton umbrella is a hardware appliance which makes use of Citrix virtualization technology to support DLP and Web-filtering features. The company will add more e-mail filtering capabilities later this year, under the Websense common management console.

The idea is to roll out content security functions as components for e-mail, Web and DLP under Triton that can be used to centrally administer a common policy.

"The appliance talks to the cloud infrastructure and pushes out policies you sent" via the management console, Meizlik says, A single appliance would support about 10,000 users, priced at about $US60 per user for the Web Security module, which would also include DLP functionality.

Websense expects to continue to market its stand-alone products Websense Web Security Gateway, the Websense Data Security Suite and Websense Email Security. But by opting for the Triton architecture, customers will be able to easily license security as components on a shared hardware platform that might include additional software and security-as-a-service functions that are part of it.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
