Websense Earns Top Spot Again

Global market intelligence firm IDC has placed content security software provider Websense at the top of its IDC Worldwide Web Security Forecast for the fourth year in a row.

IDC says that Websense has "definitive market leadership," with a nearly 18-percent share of the Web security market, as well as the top share in Web security software and appliances.

Websense was able to nab the coveted #1 spot largely because IDC found that its TRITON platform had "mastered the integration of the three pillars of content security," made up of Web, email/messaging and data loss prevention.

TRITON provides users with unified Web, email and data security (either together or in individual options). The solution comes as an enterprise-ready appliance, cloud service and/or on-premise/cloud hybrid technology, while offering unified threat analysis and a management console with inbound and outbound controls.
