Protects pages on social networking sites and corporate blogs
Websense, a provider of unified Web, data and email security, has expanded its Defensio 2.0 security services, which reduces security, productivity, and legal liability risks by analysing and classifying user-generated content that is posted to corporate and personal Websites, blogs, user forums, and social networking sites.
The company said that the new technology also enhances the real-time threat intelligence of its products, including the Web Security Gateway.
Defensio analyses more than 2.5 million comments and tens of millions of URLs weekly and the sweeping Web 2.0 threat detection and analysis conducted by Defensio is then incorporated into all Websense offerings, which are powered by the Advanced Classification Engine and the Threatseeker Network.
The new technology also includes automatic removal of unsavory content such as malicious, spam and profanity.
Websense director of development for social Web security and Defensio founder Carl Mercier said, the Defensio 2.0 technology answers a huge market need, as social networking continues to permeate the consumer and enterprise world.
"Defensio 2.0 is the only technology that scans and protects user-generated content on social networking sites and corporate blogs-giving users the ability and flexibility to harness the full power of social networking securely and safely," Mercier said.
