Websense Releases All-In-One Security Gateway Anywhere
Security vendor Websense has brought to the table the “first and only” content unified threat manager (UTM), the TRITON Security Gateway Anywhere (SGA). Websense said it’s the end-all, be-all in your network center. But is it really? Read on for what the TRITON Security Gateway Anywhere (SGA) could do for channel partners …
It’s a pretty common problem: Your customers have got Web 2.0 and social networking sites that have made themselves useful in business, but customers need to have some sort of control. As the VAR, you’re also worried about malware and a plethora of other data security issues, including data loss prevention. Websense is trying to provide direction with the TRITON SGA, putting together its web and e-mail security gateway technology, and merging it with its data loss prevention technology, all sandwiched within the TRITON V-Series appliance with a side of SaaS components.
Websense has designed the SGA also to be modular, so users (and VARs) can add in services as needs grow, such as Websense’s soon-to-be available Mobile DLP and Cloud DLP services, as well as its TruHybrid deployment capabilities, which filters spam in the cloud before it makes it to the desktop and secures confidential info before it leaves an internal corporate network.
The motivation behind this all-in-one UTM was part of Websense’s plan to consolidate the security border and do away with bloated or multiple layers of security systems in a data center. Consolidation of the data center is a trend that we’ve seen in the past, too. Consolidation can lead to a drop in capital expenses, as well as operating expenses including power and cooling. In fact, Websense claims TRITON SGA can actually cost of ownership down to 45 percent over a competitive offering.
