SAN DIEGO -- Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ:WBSN) today unveiled Websense® Content Protection Suite v6, the industry’s first security software that integrates information leak prevention capabilities with Web categorization and filtering to provide organizations with a new level of information protection. This combination of content and destination awareness, available only from Websense, allows automated enforcement of who has access to what information, how the information can be used, and where it can be sent. As a result, organizations can take advantage of emerging online business productivity applications, such as Web 2.0 sites – confident that security and usage policies, as well as predetermined business processes, are enforced and sensitive data is protected.

Websense Content Protection Suite v6 features Web intelligence and awareness through integration with Websense’s URL database and ThreatSeeker™ malicious content classification technology, as well as new context-based data recognition capabilities that increase detection accuracy and enable organizations to create and enforce powerful, user-specific data sharing policies.

“Websense makes the difficult process of protecting your ‘intellectual crown jewels’ easier through intelligent content security,” said Gene Hodges, CEO, Websense. “What Websense does with its unique context, fingerprinting, Web intelligence, and other technologies, is protect information that is important to our customers so they can mitigate risk – simply and easily. This release is a significant milestone in our content security vision and the combination of our existing and new, strategic technologies gained through the acquisition of PortAuthority earlier this year.”
