Websense Intros Early-Warning System

Websense unveiled new technology that finds security attacks launched within Web 2.0 applications and delivers threat protection

SAN DIEGO -- Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ:WBSN) today unveiled new technology that finds security attacks launched within Web 2.0 applications and delivers threat protection to customers within minutes. While Web 2.0 applications, such as social-networking sites, wikis and blogs, facilitate collaboration and sharing between users, the increased popularity of these applications has also driven hackers to target users and businesses using these emerging tools.

To combat this threat, Websense has deployed new systems across the Internet called “HoneyJax” that emulate user behavior within Web 2.0 applications to uncover threats before they spread. Developed within Websense® Security Labs™ and now part of the Websense ThreatSeeker™ technology, HoneyJax are the next evolution of “honey-based” systems designed to attract attackers and malicious code.

Websense has been at the forefront of advanced threat detection technology. In addition to the new HoneyJax systems, ThreatSeeker technology uses Honeypots and Honeyclients to track down threats targeting operating systems and applications. Available from only Websense, ThreatSeeker technology provides threat intelligence to Websense Web Security Suite™ software. Websense Web Security Suite protects organizations from Web security threats within minutes, delivered automatically through Real-Time Security Updates™.
