Websense targets 30% growth in India and AsiaPacific region

Websense Inc, a US-based internet security solutions provider, projects over 30 per cent growth for its services in India and the Asia Pacific region. India contributes about 25 per cent of the company’s Apac business, which spreads across 40 countries.

“We are strong in growth in markets like India. We had a terrific Q1 with about 34 per cent growth. We will continue to invest in this mature market,” said Timothy K Lee, VP, Asia Pacific and West Asia, Websense Inc.

The company would invest in increasing its sales force and also in supporting and educating its channel partners. Lee, however, didn’t reveal the company’s actual investment in the region. Websense markets all of its solutions through channel partners. It has about 80 resellers in India. It employs about 300 people in the region for sales and marketing and about 200 engineers in its China R&D centre. Websense will increase its sales force by 15 per cent this year.
