|Websense Releases TRITON Mobile Security
IT News Online Staff
Websense Inc. has announced the general availability of the new Websense TRITON Mobile Security solution, a cloud-based security service for Apple iOS devices on wireless mobile networks.
Websense TRITON Mobile Security combines four key elements for highly effective unified mobile security: content-aware data security, industry-leading Web security, malicious app protection and mobile device management (MDM).
This release is the third phase in the implementation of the Websense mobile security vision. It builds upon previous releases that provide mobile email data loss prevention (DLP) and on-premise Wi-Fi security support. The Websense TRITON architecture recently added 10 new defenses against data theft and loss, including optical character recognition (OCR) of text within images, which are often taken by mobile devices.
"When an employee uses a mobile device, the corporate data that resides on or passes through that device is at great risk of loss," said Jeff Wilson, principle security analyst for Infonetics. "Websense TRITON Mobile Security is the latest example of Websense innovation. It extends the company's expertise in Web, email and data security solutions to handheld devices to protect corporate data."
Websense TRITON Mobile Security provides unique protection for data-in-motion wherever employees use their devices. The data-aware defenses in Websense TRITON Mobile Security protect against data loss and the theft of intellectual property. This cloud-based security service, with an on-demand VPN tunnel, analyzes inbound and outbound data communications.
"Mobility is an unstoppable force that enables users to sometimes unwittingly distribute confidential information through the power of cloud computing," said John McCormack, president, Websense. "Websense is focused squarely on securing confidential data as it's accessed by corporate and BYOD mobile devices. With the general availability of Websense TRITON Mobile Security, organizations can now have the mobile security they haven't seen with MDM solutions."
Administrators can roll out Websense TRITON Mobile Security by simply installing a profile to iOS devices and choosing the appropriate policy for company-owned or personal mobile devices to keep them secure. Within a few minutes, customers can extend their existing Web security policies to mobile devices.
Integrated MDM features enable organizations to control mobile devices to keep them secure, minimize risk and maintain compliance. Users also have real-time contextual security provided by Websense ACE (Advanced Classification Engine), the technology that powers security defenses in all Websense TRITON security solutions.
