Websense and Juniper Bolster Security Solutions
Websense, known for their united web, data and email security solutions, has expanded its partnership with Juniper Networks. The move involves Websense content security technology melding with Juniper’s SRX Series Services Gateways. Here’s the nitty gritty…
Websense’s Web Security Gateway and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) technologies have been tweaked and designed to leverage Juniper’s security infrastructure. In theory, VARs can now help their customers to build secure, Web 2.0 content-rich networks without sacrificing performance or scalability.
The solution is designed to simplify implementation processes and network topology. Optimization is key, and Juniper is touting its SRX Series, which has 120Gbps of firewall performance, 30Gbps of IPS performance, 10M sessions, and the integrated AppSecure services suite.
Websense Web Security Gateway also merges 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 team works closely with Facebook.com, Radialpoint and even and bit.ly (a URL shortener) to help filter out even more web gunk. The Juniper / Websense combination seems smart on paper. But we haven’t seen pricing and we haven’t spoken with early adopters (yet)… But we’ll be listening for early feedback from partners and customers.
