Triton prompts Websense sales surge

Billings topped $380 million in 2013, with Triton accounting for 70 per cent

Security vendor Websense has recorded strong revenue growth in 2013 on the back of robust sales of its Triton security offering.

In 2013, total billings topped $380 million with Websense Triton solutions accounting for 70 per cent.

In the same year, it increased its Fortune 100 sales by 45 per cent over 2012, according to a company statement.

Triton solutions' billings increased 13 per cent to more than a quarter of a billion dollars and Triton revenue grew 18 per cent.

Following the acquisition of the company by Vista Equity Group in June 2013, new customer acquisition surged by more than 30 per cent worldwide in the second half of the year.

The company secured six fourth quarter deals that exceeded $1 million with three topping approximately $3 million each.

Websense chief executive, John McCormack, said security systems were an increasingly crucial business necessity.

“We protect the infrastructure and critical assets of many of the largest global organisations and government functions from cybercriminals.

“Success in the security industry hinges on continued innovation and an investment in talent.”

Betsson Group chief security officer, Valdimar Oskarsson, said his company needed cybersecurity which protected confidential data across all stages of an attack.

“Websense Triton has the security intelligence, real-time protection technology and management functionality necessary for the job,” he said.

“We have seen a significant reduction in our risk profile and have more visibility into where our security efforts need to go."
