Internet scanning firm Websense has launched a cloud-based security service for third-party service providers to use for their own products and services.

The ThreatSeeker Cloud service offers third-party service providers, such as mobile security suppliers, the same web, data and e-mail security used by all Websense content security products.

This includes real-time web and content classification, reputation, behavioural analysis, file and data analysis and security filtering.

The service provides access to the content security intelligence gathered by the 50 million real-time data collection points of the ThreatSeeker Network, through a standard web-based application programming interface (API).

According to Websense, the ThreatSeeker Network scans more than 40 million web sites and 10 million e-mails each hour to discover new threats.

Devin Redmond, vice-president of business development and product management at Websense, said the cloud-based service extends Websense technology to a new set of users.

"This service enables infrastructure suppliers to increase the value of their products and services, while end users gain real-time protection and a better user experience," Devin Redmond said.
