Content security vendor Websense today launched its first appliance product designed to give companies an easy way to prevent staff surfing malicious web sites.
The Websense V10000 secure web gateway appliance features real-time content inspection, and classification technologies from the Websense ThreatSeeker Network which help to prevent previously undetected threats.
Technology acquired through Websense's acquisition of Defensio gives the new appliance the ability to detect and prevent spam contained in comments, along with malware embedded into blogs and other user-generated content, according to the firm.
Websense V10000 also includes legacy anti-virus, reputation and other analytics tools to control inbound and outbound content, and offers integration with the Websense Data Security Suite for data loss prevention.
"We are bringing together all the major security elements of our secure web gateway onto an easy to deploy and manage platform," explained Eoin Farrer, director of web security sales at Websense.
"Traditional appliances are single purpose devices, but we are going to use the internal virtualisation technology to layer in additional components onto the same platform in future, so that customers will not have to buy extra appliances for things like data security."
