Black Hat USA 2010: Websense Security Labs Discusses Security of the Cloud at “Cloud Security Alliance Summit” and Other Security Research

CSATomorrow begins Black Hat USA 2010, one of the most anticipated security conferences of the year, and our exceptional Websense Security Labs team will be in force, through presentations on research topics including automatically locating vendor security patches and providing thought leadership during the Cloud Security Alliance Summit.

The Cloud Security Alliance Summit was developed by the Cloud Security Alliance, a not-for-profit organization with a mission to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within Cloud Computing, and to provide education on the uses of Cloud Computing to help secure all other forms of computing.

As a Cloud Security Alliance Summit sponsor, Websense has more than a decade of experience leveraging the cloud as a delivery platform and in threat research. We ensure organizations can rapidly, seamlessly and cost-effectively deliver successful security coverage, while managing it through integrated deployment methods including Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) and on premise products. To meet the challenges of today’s modern threats, millions of Websense users leverage our ThreatSeeker Cloud, which processes more than 1.5 billion transactions a day.

On Wednesday, July 28, Dan Hubbard, CTO of Websense will be speaking at the Summit about how to poison the real-time Web with real-time results. Jeongwook "Matt" Oh, senior security researcher at Websense Security Labs will be discussing the third version of a free open source tool that he supports.
