New leak prevention software with web intelligence

Websense unveiled Websense Content Protection Suite v6, the industry’s first security software that integrates information leak prevention capabilities with Web categorization and filtering to provide organizations with a new level of information protection. This combination of content and destination awareness, available only from Websense, allows automated enforcement of who has access to what information, how the information can be used, and where it can be sent. As a result, organizations can take advantage of emerging online business productivity applications, such as Web 2.0 sites — confident that security and usage policies, as well as predetermined business processes, are enforced and sensitive data is protected.

Websense Content Protection Suite v6 combines content and context awareness leveraging Web intelligence through integration with Websense’s URL database and ThreatSeeker malicious content classification technology, as well as new context-based data recognition capabilities that increase detection accuracy and enable organizations to create and enforce powerful, user-specific data sharing policies.

Over the past two years, data leaks have compromised more than 150 million personal data records, according to the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse. Analyst firm Forrester wrote in the April 2007 report, “Calculating The Cost of a Security Breach,” that a security breach can cost anywhere between $90 and $305 per record, meaning that the cost of a single, significant breach may run into millions or even billions of dollars.

Websense Content Protection Suite, with its new context- and content-based policy enforcement capabilities, helps curb this alarming data loss trend.
