Transport Company Achieves 40 Percent IT Cost Reduction by Moving to Websense Cloud-Based Email Security

Italian Transportation Company Eliminates Spam and Blended Threats and Dramatically Increases System Uptime With Websense Hosted Email Security

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/10/09 -- Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN) today announced that Atac S.p.A., a regional transport organization based in Rome -- has selected award-winning Websense Hosted Email Security to protect its 3,000 employees from blended threats and spam and increase system uptime -- while reducing IT expenses by 40 percent.

Atac also uses Websense Web Security to protect its network from emerging Web threats and to manage Web usage to reduce risk and comply with regulatory requirements.

"Blended attacks were an issue for us as we had noticed that a very high proportion of our unwanted emails contained embedded URLs," said Giorgio Sgarbazzini, CIO, Atac S.p.A. "We're impressed by the real-time threat protection of the Websense ThreatSeeker(TM) Network that powers the Websense Web Security solution and wanted the same protection and intelligence for our email security."

Websense Hosted Email Security was evaluated and selected over other managed security solutions for several reasons including: superior protection from emerging Internet threats, the ability to stop spam and threats in-the-cloud before reaching the network, as well as guaranteed service-level agreements that competitive solutions couldn't match.

"Managing our email security was a serious concern within the company," added Sgarbazzini. "Our previous on-premise solution was constantly failing and our IT resources were limited to regular business hours. Users did not appreciate being woken up in the middle of the night from the buzz of their BlackBerries as spam landed in their inboxes. Once we moved to Websense Hosted Email Security however, spam disappeared and we now have continuous system uptime. Our users are happy and we've saved money -- the results are really incredible."

"The guaranteed service level of 99.999 percent exceeded our expectations and couldn't be matched by any of the competitive solutions we evaluated," says Sgarbazzini. "This was in addition to 100 percent protection from known viruses and 99 percent spam detection. Websense was by far the best solution for our needs."

Websense Hosted Email Security eliminates spam and malware before they reach the network. The hosted deployment model provides centralized security with built-in redundancy, failover and business continuity while easing administration and optimizing network operating capacity planning costs. Guaranteed by industry-leading service level agreements, Websense Hosted Email Security reduces business costs, eliminates the complexity of managing email threats and provides the highest possible degree of protection.

All Websense solutions are powered by the Websense ThreatSeeker(TM) Network which continuously monitors the Internet for changes and emerging threats. The resulting intelligence is incorporated in real-time into the company's Web, data and email security solutions. As a result, Websense solutions adapt to the rapidly changing Internet threat environment at speeds not possible by traditional security solutions.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
