SAN DIEGO, Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Websense, Inc., a global leader in protecting organizations from the latest cyberattacks and data theft, today announced it has been honored in the InformationWeek 500, a well-respected list of top U.S. business information technology (IT) innovators, for the fourth consecutive year.

"Maintaining a superior level of IT innovation and operations is paramount for Websense," said Dave Baker, vice president of information technology for Websense. "Receiving this recognition for the fourth consecutive year is a great honor and speaks volumes about our productivity as an IT team. I look forward to continuing this success and thank InformationWeek for acknowledging the hard work my team has undertaken over the past year."

To enable its highly mobile sales force, Websense® created a tablet tool to shorten sales cycles worldwide and quickly prove the effectiveness of its security solutions. The tool simplified a complex problem: how to accurately depict the shifting threat landscape to potential customers, while exposing the insecure elements of their enterprise. It also helps prove that Websense security technology provides the best protection against today's advanced threats.

Customers typically have minimal time to discuss their security concerns due to time-consuming daily business operations. This useful and fast threat assessment tool is an invaluable digital advancement. It allows prospective Websense customers to safely and easily view current, real-world threats able to bypass their current defenses so they can make informed decisions about improving their security posture.

"The theme of this year's InformationWeek 500 is digital business," said Rob Preston, editor in chief at InformationWeek. "It's a movement, rooted in data analytics, mobile computing, social networking and other customer‐focused technologies that are turning companies and industries on their ear. Every enterprise is now a digital business—or needs to become one fast. The companies in our ranking are leading the way."

InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual InformationWeek 500 listing, and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of some of the best‐known organizations in the country. Past overall winners include Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, PACCAR Inc., The Vanguard Group, CME Group, National Semiconductor, Con‐Way and Principal Financial Group. Unique among corporate rankings, the InformationWeek 500 spotlights the power of innovation in information technology.
