Overall Satisfaction with Websense

Websense is used in implementing endpoint DLP, as a content gateway, a web filter, a URL filter and also e-mail security. It provides real-time scanning of websites and caching both of which are really important features to us at our organization. Overall [it's] easy to navigate (user-friendly) and has a UI with a few issues here and there, but still we are happy with the product.
  • Real-time scanning
  • Caching capabilities
  • Easy to implement changes with good and clean UI
  • Sometimes needs rebooting of appliances as throughput reduces
  • Support improvement needed
  • Navigating to appliances could be better
  • DLP has been our major reason for Websense and it has delivered well
  • Appliance failure/reboot required has caused some downtime
Websense requires some work but is good with the DLP appliances. The content gateway needs some improvement and the endpoint agent has affected performance in some cases. All in all, it does the job but not without a good investment of work and time!
