Websense Expands Partnership With Juniper Networks to Deliver Best in Class High-Performance Security Solutions

Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN), a company specialized in unified Web, data and email security solutions, has expanded its partnership with Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) to offer Websense content security solutions with Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateways. The expanded partnership covers Websense Web Security Gateway and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) technologies — part of the newly unveiled Websense TRITON system — and is designed to leverage Juniper’s high-performance security infrastructure to enable joint customers to build secure Web 2.0 and content-rich networks without sacrificing performance or scale.

The joint solution simplifies network topology and consolidates security functionality to optimize network service and performance. Juniper’s SRX Series, a high-performance, carrier-grade security and networking platform capable of 120Gbps of firewall performance, 30Gbps of IPS performance, 10M sessions, and the integrated AppSecure services suite, combined with Websense Web Security Gateway with real-time content analytics, integrated enterprise -class data loss prevention and centralized management delivers lower total cost of ownership by reducing the number of security nodes and related management.

"By selecting Websense as a key security partner, Juniper is presenting a differentiated vision by providing customers with market-leading content security as an integral piece of the network — giving their customers the highest level of consideration against the evolving threat landscape," said Chris Christiansen, analyst, IDC. "Juniper has already integrated strong network layer security, adding content security is the next logical step and Websense is the clear leader in that space. This partnership enables Juniper and Websense to leverage their respective leadership positions to better serve enterprise and service provider networks."

"Adding application awareness to the network is imperative," said Brian Lazear, senior director of Product Management at Juniper Networks. "Partnering with Websense enables Juniper to provide customers with unmatched Web and data security capabilities that better secure their networks."

"To protect enterprise data from threats, while preserving network performance and minimizing total cost of ownership it is critical for network infrastructure, network security and content security to be tightly integrated," said Devin Redmond, vice president, product management, Websense. "With this partnership we are focused on providing customers with the ability to deploy our combined solutions with the highest networking performance and best security available on the market."

In addition to real-time content scanning and classification, the Websense Web Security Gateway interoperates with Juniper’s SRX Series to leverage security intelligence gathered from the 50 million real-time data collecting systems of the Websense ThreatSeeker® Network and Websense continuously updated database of millions of classified URLs across more than 90 categories, in more than 50 languages. The Websense Web Security Gateway continues to evolve as the most knowledgeable resource on the ever shifting Web — gathering data through unique partnerships with Facebook, and Value Added Service providers, like Radialpoint, to collect and categorize Web intelligence that is unavailable to other security providers.
