The Defensio Web service provides social Web site owners and customers with accurate, personalized and adaptive protection from comment spam and malware embedded in user generated content. Additionally, by delivering unique real-world data from blog comments and other Web 2.0 applications, the Defensio service increases Websense coverage of converged threats, strengthens the Websense Web, messaging and data security solutions and enhances the Websense ThreatSeeker™ Network.
In the future, Websense plans to further extend Defensio capabilities with intelligence from the Websense ThreatSeeker™ Network to deliver protection from malicious code, phishing sites and fraud posted to and hosted on user-generated content sites.
Defensio for personal use – Defensio Web service for filtering comment spam and malware is available free of charge for personal use. Defensio adapts to the site content and users’ habits in a personalized way. This means that no two bloggers will see Defensio react in precisely the same way, even for similar comments, which is a good thing -- because one person's ham might be another person's spam. A continuously evolving set of algorithms ensures that spammers never gain the upper hand.
Defensio for commercial use – Defensio Web service for commercial users will be offered as a six month trial at no cost.
Develop to Defensio – Websense encourages Web 2.0 application developers to integrate Defensio’s powerful anti-spam and anti-malware capabilities into their applications with an easy-to-use public API that can manage traffic from any application that accepts user-generated content that might be subject to spam, malicious or objectionable content. The combination of Defensio and Websense provides Web 2.0 developers security capabilities that enable them to safely determine if user-generated content is malicious, unwanted or confidential – without having to embed anything in their applications or products.
