Websense has developed a real-time security protection system to meet the challenges posed by Web 2.0 threats.
The Websense Web Security Gateway aims to tackle the growing challenges brought about by the explosion of Web 2.0 technologies including user-generated content, mashups, interactive networking sites and web applications.
Providing inline inspection of web traffic, SSL traffic, Web 2.0 applications, and more than 100 network protocols, the website monitoring company said the product classifies new and dynamic content in real-time, determining immediately whether the website and its content are safe.
Lawrence Orans, research director for Gartner, said, "Attackers are targeting 'trusted' websites with good reputations to circumvent traditional security measures and maximise attack effectiveness. To enable legitimate business use of these sites while still protecting against inbound and outbound malware, organisations are increasingly demanding Secure Web Gateway products that go beyond traditional URL filtering to provide real-time inspection of malicious web content and granular web application control."
Websense Web Security Gateway is due to be release later this month.
