Information security vendor Websense argues that trying to defend against malware threats using separate email, web and data security tools is an approach that can easily be compromised.

For example, a spam email may contain a link to a website that automatically downloads a virus designed to steal data. With a combined web-data-email approach, there are three lines of defence against this common form of ‘blended’ attack.

Websense calls its combined approach, which it presents in this video, ‘Essential Information Protection’.
