    Earnings

    Not the best but still like the long term prospects, can't imagine it will not be acquired within a few years.

    • Web filtering is so 5 years ago. Many companies are now giving web filtering away for free including Palo Alto Networks, Bluecoat and Fortinet. Triton, which stands for e-mail, Internet and data security, is just some made up mumbo jumbo fancy name tag by Gene Hodges and company. First off, Websense is not a market leader in the data security space aka DLP or data leakage protection, in fact, the Port Authority acquisition has been a major failure. Secondly, Websense is not a market leader in the now saturated e-mail security/SPAM market space, Postini is giving away SPAM protection for cents per e-mail box. The only thing that Websense has going for it, is you guessed it, web filtering and security and web filtering and web security is a dying market space due to continued cost pressures from Bluecoat, Fortinet and Palo Alto Networks. I just don't see any company acquiring Websense.
