Filtering software vendor Websense Inc [WBSN] has landed a $1.3 million increase to its contract with the US Army in Europe for the use of its Websense Enterprise Internet filter software.
The new extension adds to $2.7 million to the value of California-based Websense’s deal with the US Army 5th Signal Command in the last year, and represents the largest single transaction in the company’s history
As well as managing internet use by US soldiers and civilian employees across Europe from 5th Signal Command’s Army Network Operations and Security Center in Mannheim, Germany, the deployment of Websense Enterprise 5 will be used to present access to malicious code and spy ware sites, as well as block advertisements and optimize network bandwidth.
The 5th Signal Command also purchased additional Websense modules covering reporting tools and protection against emerging threats from spy ware, peer-to-peer networks and instant messaging.
