Web security company Websense on Wednesday announced plans to integrate PortAuthority Technologies’ information leak- prevention technology into its product line.

Websense’s upcoming Deep Content Control offering, slated for availability during the first half of next year, will include PortAuthority’s PreciseID information classification and identification technology, according to both Websense and PortAuthority officials.

By including PortAuthority’s technology with its content filtering and Web security offerings, Websense will offer a product that protects against sensitive information being viewed by unauthorized employees, and it also controls how such information leaves the organization and under what circumstances, officials say.

These additions enhance Websense’s existing product line that blocks malicious code from entering an organization via the Web and controls which Web sites employees visit to comply with corporate policies, they say.

Pricing for Websense’s Deep Content Control has not yet been announced.
