Websense Secure Web Gateway Awarded Product Innovation of the Year by Analyst Firm Frost & Sullivan

Frost & Sullivan Credits the Strong Set of Integrated Websense Solutions Across the Converging Areas of Web Security, Email Security and Data Loss Prevention

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/07/09 -- Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN) today announced that Frost & Sullivan, a leading research and consulting firm, awarded Websense with two prestigious awards for product innovation and marketing leadership.

Websense received the North American Product Innovation of the Year Award for Web Content Management due to its innovative Web security products, particularly the Websense® Web Security Gateway. Frost & Sullivan recognized Websense for developing security products that address the unique security challenges of dynamic content on today's feature-rich Web sites, especially Web 2.0 sites and applications.

"One of the important features of Websense Web Security Gateway is its ability to identify and prevent dynamic threats associated with Web 2.0 sites and applications by analyzing never-before-seen Web content in real time and blocking just the portion of the Web page that presents the threat," said Yin Fern Ko, research analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "With its dynamic threat protection and complete portfolio of Web, email and data security solutions, Websense enables companies to take advantage of the business benefits of Web 2.0 while protecting their networks and essential information from Web-based threats and data loss."

Frost & Sullivan also awarded Websense the Global Content Filtering Products Market Leadership Award for its strong product development and market strategy that have enabled Websense to remain the leader in the content filtering market for the past four years. The analyst firm reports that Websense has grown continually year after year, and that it held more than 26 percent of the $2.7 billion global content filtering market in 2008.

"While Websense has a solid foundation in the Web filtering market, the acquisition of SurfControl, PortAuthority, and the release of the Web Security Gateway has provided Websense with a strong set of integrated solutions across the converging areas of Web security, email security, and data loss prevention," said Ko.

"Websense has invested heavily in product development and strategic acquisitions to broaden our product portfolio and transform the company into the industry leader in integrated Web security, email security and data loss prevention solutions," said Jim Haskin, senior vice president of marketing and chief information officer, Websense. "These awards from Frost & Sullivan validate our product offering strategy, and we're honored to be recognized for providing innovative solutions that protect businesses and their essential information from security threats, particularly Web 2.0 threats."
