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.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
