Are you getting tired of clearing out all those spam messages from your blogsite’s comment section?

You’re not alone.  A recent survey released by online security software company Websense Inc. says that nearly 95 per cent of user generated comments to blogs, chat rooms, message boards and other social net content are actually spam or links to malware.

If  you’re engaged in any form of social networking activity to boost your professional or personal profile or if  Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, BlogSpot or other such sites part of your company’s marketing campaign, that’s bad news.

Websense, however, has recently released a beta version 2.0 of its Defensio social Web threat detection platform.

The Defensio 2.0, which is available for free download for a limited time, analyzes and classifies user generated content posted on Web 2.0 scuh as blogsites and Facebook, according to Carl Mercier, director of software development for Websense.

“This is the first real-time security application for Facebook pages. It’s ideal for individuals and businesses that have a Facebook presence,” says Mercier who was founder and CEO of Defensio before it was bought up by Websense last year.

Defensio 2.0 might be worth a try. To see how it works click on this video link.

The application alerts the Facebook page owner if malicious or inappropriate content has been posted to their site. Filtering parameters can be set by the user. Once a risk is identified, the user can safely delete the content to prevent it from spreading to Facebook friends or blog readers.

  • wow nice tool, and i feel its one of the innovative.

    The internet popularity and indulgence is growing in leaps and bounds and so is the trade and commerce associated with it. With every passing day, businesses of all sizes have been crowding the web with their unique (or rather similar) services and products to grab user attention. Hence, the birth of the never-ending online business competition!

  • Glad you found Defensio useful. We’ll continue to post information about products that might help our readers.

  • This looks really good!

    We are just setting up our Facebook page and I think this tool will come in really handy.

    I dont mind my personal account getting hit with spam (well I do, but not that much), but for my business, I dont want to be at all!

    I just looked at the download page and I can still get it free as its we have less than 5 people (phew!).
