WEBSENSE and Sun Microsystems have released Websense v6.1, which is integrated with the Sun Java System Web Proxy Server 4.0.
New features of Websense v6.1 offer robust security and Internet policy enforcement for Sun customers at the Internet gateway, on the network, at the desktop and for the remote web-enabled employee.
Sun Java System Web Proxy Server is a high-performance server software for caching and filtering Web content for enterprise customers and Internet Service Providers (ISPs).
Websense Enterprise v6.1 integrates with Sun's Web Proxy Server to enhance network security by providing IT administrators with the ability to effectively manage Internet traffic and report on all network activity.
Websense's flexible filtering policy engine provides granular controls to block or allow access to website across over 90 categories of web content, including sites that harbor spyware, mobile malicious code, keyloggers and phishing frauds.
New capabilities of Websense v6.1 include enhanced real-time security updates, email and onscreen alerting of activities outside established policy parameters and the ability to more easily customise certain filtering options.
New web-based user interfaces for the central management console deliver greater ease-of-use and deployment flexibility, while enhanced reporting features address the privacy and reporting requirements of today's regulatory environment.
Websense’s new Remote Filtering functionality allows an organisation to apply Internet usage policies to remote users and frequent travellers, protecting them from external security threats and managing access to objectionable web content.
Secure Internet access provided by Websense Remote Filtering not only provides protection for remote users from accessing phishing sites, sites that contain spyware, or sites corrupted with malicious code, but also reduces the cost, downtime, and frustration associated with compromised computers in the field.
