Websense Releases TRITON Mobile Security for iOS
Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN) — a global provider of mobile security services — announced the general availability of its cloud-based security solution for iOS devices on wireless mobile networks, TRITON Mobile Security. The unified mobile security program incorporates content-aware data security, web security, malicious app protection and mobile device management.
TRITON Mobile Security includes optical character recognition (OCR) of text within images, which is one of the solution’s 10 new defenses against data theft and loss.

According to the company, this new release is another addition to its mobile security vision.
This particular cloud-based service is an on-demand VPN tunnel that analyzes communications — both inbound and outbound.
