Websense has launched the Triton unified security architecture to combine its web, data and email security technologies into a single platform.

It said that its Triton architecture integrates the real-time web content analysis and malware protection of the Websense web security gateway with the Websense data security suite and Websense email security to protect organisations and their essential information.

It also includes TruHybrid to unify policy management and reporting infrastructure across on-premise, Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) and hybrid deployment models. Triton allows organisations to set persistent security policies across geographically dispersed offices and remote workers, and manage those policies from a single management console for both their on-premise and SaaS web, data and email security solutions.

Websense president John McCormack, said: “We have been pursuing this unified content security strategy with relentless focus since early 2007 by developing, acquiring and integrating our industry-leading web, email and data security technologies and expanding our ThreatSeeker content analysis and threat detection capabilities.

“All this was done not so we could simply offer SaaS versions of our security products as some other vendors do, but so we could pave the way to the future of enterprise security by combining the power of on-premise, real-time content security with the ease of management and lower total cost of ownership provided by SaaS solutions. Above all, Triton provides Websense customers the best protection against modern threats at a lower total cost of ownership.”

Triton is currently available to qualified organisations as part of an early adopter program, it is planned that full general availability for upgrade and purchase will be in April.
