Pentura Adds Websense's Data Security Suite To Portfolio

Security offering complements and strengthens Pentura's range of risk management services
24 April, 2009: Pentura, a leading IT security consultancy and the UK's first Risk Management Service Provider, has today added the Data Security Suite (DSS) from Websense to its portfolio. The DSS complements Pentura's range of data security solutions and strengthens the range of risk management services offered.

Simon Morris, R&D DirectorAs one of the market's leading data protection solutions, DSS allows Pentura to offer organisations the ability to "

  • locate and classify where business critical data sits within the business
  • monitor who is accessing the data and by what means
  • protect and secure information through data control policies

    Steve Smith, managing director of Pentura comments, "Locating, monitoring and protecting an organisation's intellectual property is more important now than ever before as data loss prevention is increasingly discussed at board level due to a number of recent high profile incidents. IT managers must protect the data that is most valuable to their organisation and understand how, when and where this information is being used within their own organisations - or prepare to face the consequences."

    Simon Morris, research and development director at Pentura comments, "We have spent two years conducting comprehensive commercial and technical tests into the data leakage security market. We have found that Websense DSS offers the best mix of granular endpoint and network control. This allows us to provide our clients with an industry leading portfolio of cost effective and technically competent risk management services."

    "It's great to have experienced partners like Pentura who can educate end users on the importance of protecting sensitive data and independently deliver Websense solutions to prevent data loss and maintain compliance," said Pat Dunne, Senior Director, UK & Ireland, Websense. "The addition of Websense Data Security Suite (DSS) to Pentura's portfolio makes perfect sense; they share our commitment and focus on protecting customers from the risk of data breaches."

    The addition of Websense DSS strengthens Pentura's existing industry partnerships, providing a portfolio of integrated risk management solutions to customers in both the private and public sectors.
