SAN DIEGO, Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For the fourth year in a row, IDC has placed content security provider Websense (NASDAQ: WBSN) at the top of the IDC Worldwide Web Security 2011 – 2015 Forecast and 2010 Vendor Shares report.
"Websense foresaw that web security, email security, and data loss prevention are inextricably linked. And the integrated Websense® TRITON™ technology was built to address all three as 'content security'," said Phil Hochmuth, program manager of Security Products at IDC. "The company's web security leadership has been solidified by continued innovation and commitment to security effectiveness."
The IDC report notes that Websense has:
- Definitive market leadership, with 18 percent web security market share, which is more than twice the nearest competitor.
- The number one share in web security software and appliances.
- Mastered the integration of the three pillars of content security—web, email/messaging, and data loss prevention (DLP)—with its TRITON platform, through which each respective content security feature can be deployed and centrally managed.
- Superior web security intelligence for inbound threats and outbound risks with the Websense Advanced Classification Engine and the Websense TRITON solutions.
Tens of thousands of customers worldwide rely on Websense content security. The company's flagship Websense TRITON solutions offer unified web, email, and data security together or as standalone packages.
