SAN DIEGO, April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Twenty-eight security companies won one SC Magazine award each this year. Just three security companies won two awards. But only Websense won three security awards—including Best Enterprise Security Solution.

Up against Sourcefire, Splunk, Verdasys, and WhiteHat Security for Best Enterprise Security Solution, Websense proved to an expert panel of security professionals that its next-generation containment defenses are the most effective at stopping advanced malware and data theft.

In addition to winning Best Enterprise Security Solution, Websense Web Security Gateway Anywhere was a dual winner and also won Best Web Content Management Solution. And the Websense® Security Labs™ Blog was named Best Corporate Security Blog.

"Effectiveness against advanced threats and data theft is what makes Websense stand out," said Tom Clare, senior director of product marketing for Websense. "Targeted attacks, social lures, exploit kits, and data theft have changed the security playing field and are showing the weaknesses in traditional and competitive products. These awards are the latest validation that Websense Security Labs and the Websense TRITON™ solutions are the leaders for effective enterprise security."

Websense Web Security Gateway Anywhere is part of the Websense TRITON architecture, which unifies all of the key components of threat defense and data theft prevention into a cohesive content security system. The TRITON solution brings together web security, email security, mobile security, and data loss prevention (DLP) defenses and unified security intelligence. And all under one management console. TRITON solutions can be deployed on enterprise-grade appliances, as cloud-based services, and as powerful and efficient hybrids of on-premise and cloud elements working together.

Websense won the Best Web Content Management Solution award after proving the strength and overall impact of Websense Web Security Gateway Anywhere to the Reader Trust Voting Panel. The panel represented a cross-section of SC Magazine readers and included large, medium, and small enterprises from all major markets.

The Websense Security Labs blog was voted the winner of Best Corporate Security Blog by online votes from security professionals. The blog is a trusted source for up-to-date information on the latest outbreaks, threats, and other research-focused security topics. The research expertise of the Websense Security Labs is also responsible for the ongoing threat detection and effectiveness of the Websense ACE (Advanced Classification Engine) and Websense TRITON products.

"Congratulations to Websense for winning three 2012 SC Magazine Awards," said Illena Armstrong, VP and editorial director, SC Magazine. "Websense impressed SC Magazine readers, our distinguished panel of judges, and the SC Magazine editors with their innovations and effectiveness."
