Web sense aims to bring the benefits of enterprise-class employee Internet managing solutions to smaller and medium sized companies with a product named, clearly if unimaginatively, Websense Enterprise for Small and Medium Businesses. The target is organisations with 1,000 or fewer employees. The software provides all of the benefits of the recently released Websense Enterprise v5 within a single server environment. This should be better for small or medium-sized companies that may not have a firewall, cache, or proxy device to deploy the software within their computing environments. Websense v5 is still the only employee Internet management solution to provide management at a server, network and desktop level--ensuring companies can protect themselves against emerging Internet-related threats such as hacking software, peer-to-peer file sharing, Instant Messaging and web-based storage. It is all about managing the interaction between the employee and his or her computing resources. With more than half of all Internet-enabled employees worldwide working in organisations of 1,000 or fewer employees, the launch of this more compactly packaged solution makes sense, especially if it encourages security by being a simple plug-in and set-up experience. Websense says set-up is simple given a reasonable IT user capability, though the authors have not tested it for themselves.
