Websense’s Advanced Classification Engine (ACE) has been armed with 10 new defenses in TRITON 7.7, including: detecting criminal encrypted uploads, optical character recognition of text within images for data-in-motion and geo-location awareness.

Websense TRITON“No matter what you are running — anti-virus, URL filtering, next generation firewalls — cybercriminals may find a way in and will establish command and control communication to steal your data,” said John McCormack, president of Websense, in a statement. “Our advanced malware and data theft protection measures set a heightened standard for security and forensic reporting. Our technology is designed to retain and contain your most sensitive data, while providing you with the visibility necessary to understand how significant the threat to your organization truly is and what cybercriminals are targeting.”

Websense has also included an email URL sandboxing capability that identifies suspicious links in emails for real-time analysis. When email recipients click on an embedded URL, Websense analyzes the website content and browser code in real time, in a cloud environment, to ensure safety in any location at any time, the company said.

Websense also updated the TRITON Advanced Malware Threat dashboard. The new dashboard profiles security incidents and features information such as severity levels and the ability to export incidents to SIEM solutions.

“With the enhancements, Websense TRITON raises the bar for security defenses,” said Christian Christiansen, an analyst with IDC, in a statement. “The new Websense advanced malware and data theft innovations address evolving threats from external and internal sources. Especially notable is the comprehensive approach that includes data loss prevention coupled to web-based malware mitigation and managed from a consolidated dashboard.”
