Information security experts honor Websense for stopping targeted, sophisticated cyber attacks and zero-day exploits

SAN DIEGO, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Websense, the global leader in protecting organizations from the latest cyber attacks and data theft, was recently recognized by SC Magazine readers and industry experts for Best Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Protection. The SC Magazine Reader Trust voting panel selected Websense® TRITON® Enterprise as the most effective APT solution in the security industry.

"Websense is a great example of a company that keeps organizations safe from advanced, data stealing attacks," said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. "The Reader Trust category is one of the most highly anticipated accolades at the SC Awards ceremony because it represents the voice of the people who are really using the products—SC Magazine readers. Websense has proven to this group that they are leading the charge with the leadership and innovation necessary to stay ahead of modern threats."

Websense won Best Advanced Persistent Threat Protection over hundreds of vendor entries. Websense TRITON Enterprise was selected for its advanced malware protection combining advanced threat detection for web and email traffic with full data theft capabilities for data-in-motion and at rest. One unified solution provides comprehensive cyber-security to prevent data theft across web, email, and endpoint communications

"Today's advanced threats are evolving at an unprecedented rate and it's clear that traditional signature-based solutions are unable to stop these data stealing attacks," said John McCormack, Websense CEO. "We are honored that SC Magazine readers recognize TRITON as the best solution for preventing data theft by protecting against advanced persistent threats, zero-day exploits, and sophisticated targeted attacks across all communication channels of a modern enterprise."

Websense Web Security Gateway Anywhere also won Best Web Content Management Solution for its ability to stop advanced threats from infiltrating a network via the web.
