Most security effectiveness tests take a sample of known malicious content, and see how many threats each solution can catch. Unfortunately, stopping known threats — those with a known signature, reputation or destination — isn't enough to protect real-world networks. Solutions must also stop unknown threats, including zero-day exploits, timed attacks and spear-phishing, plus lures and redirects hidden in social networking.
So we designed a new test, along with leading independent test laboratory Miercom*, that simulates a typical day on a network like yours. We put a large sample of web traffic of unknown nature through our TRITON-powered Websense® Web Security Gateway solution, along with competing web gateways and firewalls. Each solution had a fair and equal chance to analyze, classify and block threats as it would on your network.
The results are in. The implications are clear: when you are facing real-world network traffic — not just a canned collection of known threats — features such as the real-time, inline defences of the TRITON architecture have an unmistakable advantage.

*The test was conducted in January 2013, audited by the Miercom, and used a data set of over 2.2 million live web requests of unknown nature.
