<p>SYDNEY, 18 May 2009 — 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.</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>“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&amp;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.”</p>
<p>Websense Web Security protects Brookfield Multiplex from known and new Web-based threats. Backed by the Websense ThreatSeeker™ 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.</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>“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.</p>
<p>Websense also helps protect the organisation’s reputation and potential liability by enabling the IT team to block individual staff members accessing inappropriate material. Indeed, access to social networking sites only cuts in after 6.00pm each evening.</p>
<p>“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.</p>
