Websense has launched the Websense Data Security Suite version 7 and the new Websense Data Security Endpoint.


Version 7 offers integrated data loss prevention and Web security functionality in a single Web gateway. This gives unique visibility and control over where confidential data can be sent, and the solutions together provides integrated functionality and includes a single Web gateway control point with SSL decryption, granular geographic location visibility, real-time user identification and policy enforcement, and Web destination awareness and control.


The Data Security Endpoint extends data loss prevention to the endpoint, whether the user is on or off the network. Organisations can set policies that prevent specific sensitive customer information from being copied and pasted or printed while allowing the same sales person to print, copy and paste information that is not deemed sensitive. This flexibility enables business productivity while eliminating the risk of data loss.


John McCormack, senior vice president, product development at Websense, said: “Today's workforce is more mobile and global than ever before, with employees using and accessing essential data, such as customer information, design documents or financials, from multiple devices, anytime and anywhere around the world.


“Locking things down is not only unrealistic, it hinders business growth. That's why we are delivering the new Websense Data Security Endpoint. With this new addition to our data security solutions, our customers can safely ‘say yes' to employees using and accessing sensitive information, whether on a laptop or USB device, while protecting that data from misuse or loss.”


Björn Sigurðarson, Information Security Officer, Landsbanki, said: “We need to protect our sensitive information, improve our productivity and business processes, and protect ourselves from content-based threats. The combination of the Websense version 7 Data Security Suite and version 7 Web Security Gateway provides us with a set of tightly integrated solutions for full, deep content security and control.
