SAN DIEGO, Nov. 28, 2012

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN) today
announced that independent research analyst firm, Forrester Research, Inc. has
named Websense^® a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Email Content Security, Q4
2012[1] report. Websense received the highest score in the current offering
category of all nine vendors for email security.

The current offering category examined email filtering; data leak prevention;
reporting and management; performance and operations; and client scores and
feedback, which was evaluated through customer interviews.

The report also notes, "Websense has a strong story regarding hybrid email
security deployments. The TRITON architecture enables reporting and management
of both on-premises gateways and SaaS from a single console. Customers can
also manage web security and DLP solutions from the same interface. TRITON
offers a compelling 'single pane of glass' option."

"Websense email security is key to our security arsenal," said Mark Jackson,
information security officer, Westamerica Bank. "It goes beyond status quo
email security with unprecedented real-time protection against spam, malicious
spear-phishing threats and outbound data theft and loss. The tight integration
of email security and data loss prevention technology within the Websense
TRITON^™ platform significantly reduces our risk of data loss and compliance
violations."

Modern day email threats are targeted and timed to lure users into clicking on
malicious links. Once email users click on an embedded link, the TRITON
architecture analyzes the website content and browser code in real time to
ensure safety in any location at any time. Blended attacks require the
real-time, in-line defenses of Websense ACE (Advanced Classification Engine).
ACE analyzes threats across seven defense assessment areas and is backed by
analytics and security intelligence from the ThreatSeeker Network™.

"Forrester Research conducted an extremely rare, hands-on analysis of current
email security technologies. We believe this Forrester Research recognition
proves Websense email security goes well beyond ineffective spam and AV
solutions," said John McCormack, president, Websense. "Today's toughest
cybercriminals are using email to directly access and lure key employees so
they can steal the crown jewels. Websense is the only security provider that
examines website content at point-of-click to stop email threats in real-time,
while integrating market-leading DLP to stop data theft."

Websense TRITON technology unifies all the key components of threat protection
and data theft prevention into a cohesive content security system. It brings
together web security, email security, mobile security and DLP defenses with
unified security intelligence and a unified management console. TRITON
solutions can be deployed on enterprise-grade appliances, as cloud-based
services, and as powerful and efficient hybrids of on-premise and cloud
elements working together.
