Websense Security Labs Launches New Intelligence Services And Tools

Websense CSI On-Demand and Live services help organizations pinpoint attack methods, processes, and data targets

LAS VEGAS, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Black Hat USA - Advanced threats have evolved to a point where in-house resources alone are not enough to defend against data theft. Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN), a global leader in unified web security, email security, mobile security and data loss prevention (DLP), today announced two new Websense® CyberSecurity Intelligence™ (CSI) services that give IT security teams access to an online sandbox environment, continuing education, current research and the expert Websense® Security Labs™ guidance they need to help protect their organizations from cybercriminals and the loss of confidential information.

"Businesses are struggling to protect themselves from unknown, targeted and adaptive security threats because they are more resistant to signature-based security tools," said Christine Liebert, senior analyst for industry analyst firm IDC's Security Services. "The new Websense CSI services provide sandboxing services, forensic details and rich security expertise that are required to help in-house IT security teams combat the latest threats and prevent data loss."

All Websense CSI customers will have access to ThreatScope™, an online sandbox environment, to safely test potential malware. Users simply upload a suspicious file to ThreatScope, which applies Websense Advanced Classification Engine (ACE) analytics, activates the file within a sandbox and compiles an extensive report of observed behavior. Insights include the infection process; post-infection activities (such as calling home); system-level events and processes; registry changes and file modifications.

The Websense CSI services are run by the Websense Security Labs and are currently available in two offerings:

· CSI: On-Demand—A completely online, on-demand sandbox and training environment that provides exclusive access to a wide variety of resources to maintain in-house security expertise. Tools include ThreatScope and online research and forensic investigation training, techniques and tools.

· CSI: Live—Includes all online services of CSI: On-Demand, plus the ability to work directly with Websense Security Labs researchers on three key areas. First, users have access to a three-day hands-on training on advanced security research methodologies and techniques. Second, Websense researchers provide planning assistance, which includes proactive testing of current security postures and full reviews of product deployment, configuration and policies. And finally, confidential forensic incident investigations to determine what happened and future prevention.

"We spend 24-hours a day, seven days a week investigating and analyzing the latest cyber-attack trends and malware tactics," said Charles Renert, vice president of the Websense Security Labs. "These new services expand our customers' in-house resources and provide them the opportunity to put a Websense Security Labs researcher on their team when they need the expertise the most—when they're under attack."
