Forcepoint (Websense) Log Analysis

Company Overview

Websense was founded in 1994 as NetPartners, a commercial reseller of firewalls and other network security products. Two years later, it introduced its first software product to help customers manage employee use of the Web, and in 1999, the company adopted the name Websense. Forcepoint was formed in 2015 through the merger of Raytheon Cyber Products and Websense. Its products address the cybersecurity challenges and regulatory requirements facing businesses and government agencies and provide cloud security, data and insider threat security, network security, and global government security.
