Global Property Developer Builds IT Security Infrastructure With Websense

Brookfield Multiplex Standardizes on Websense Web Security Software and Cloud-Based Email Security Services

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/18/09 -- Websense, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBSN) today announced that Brookfield Multiplex, a wholly-owned subsidiary of global infrastructure and property giant Brookfield Asset Management, has deployed Websense Web Security software and Websense Hosted Email Security services to provide safe and secure Internet and email access for its 2,000 strong workforce.

Brookfield Multiplex is a fully-integrated property and funds management business with activities in commercial, retail, and residential property development, construction, management services, and infrastructure. The company has a reputation for quality, innovation and the successful delivery of major projects.

Committed to providing a safe and productive work environment, the company required a flexible and scalable Web and email security solution to support secure Internet access and availability for its employees based in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, the Middle East and the UK. Following a review of several solutions, Brookfield Multiplex selected Websense Web Security and Websense Hosted Email Security.

"Websense has a great reputation and has deployed its leading-edge Web, data and email security solutions at many Fortune 500 companies," said Stephen Edridge, Group Manager IT&T, Brookfield Multiplex. "The company is very professional, and we were impressed at the outset by their ability to understand our specific business requirements. At the same time, their products are known to be the best on the market."

Websense Web Security protects Brookfield Multiplex from known and new Web-based threats. Backed by the Websense ThreatSeeker(TM) Network, Websense Web Security protects from spyware, malicious code, and phishing attacks, bots, and other threats. Unlike some other solutions, it also blocks spyware and keylogger backchannel communications from reaching host servers.

Websense Hosted Email Security incorporates multiple layers of real-time Web and data security intelligence to provide Brookfield Multiplex with protection from converged email and Web 2.0 content threats. Key features enable the IT team to build a customisable dashboard to monitor email usage, as well as interactive drill-down reports and automatic report scheduling and delivery.

"Deployment was very smooth. Initially, I was concerned about email traffic changing paths during the deployment but these fears were unfounded in reality. As far as the users were concerned, it was a simple process and business as usual," says Edridge.

Websense also helps protect the organization's reputation and potential liability by enabling the IT team to block individual staff members accessing inappropriate material.

"Now that we have Websense, the Internet is available all the time and we have increased employee productivity which improves morale and boosts customer service. Websense provides the company with a protective barrier to access resources and continue to conduct business wherever our staff may be located," says Edridge.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
