Forcepoint, powered by Raytheon, is the new face of Websense, an enterprise software company developing products and solutions to safeguard users, data, and networks against insider threats and outside attackers—in the cloud, on the road, and in the office.
Websense’s public facing website was powered by an outdated and inflexible CMS. As they prepared for the joint venture with Raytheon to launch Forcepoint, they wanted to streamline the management of their content—unifying multilingual content (internationalization) with geographically-relevant content (localization)—within a modern responsive design.
As work began with Websense, we realized that we needed to implement a new workflow between IT and the content administrators. During our Discovery Phase, Vista Partners and Raytheon announced the joint venture which would rebrand Websense as Forcepoint, following its consolidation with Raytheon Cyber Products and Stonesoft. This added additional verticals (including government and defense), along with additional product families like network security, to Websense’s already diverse offerings.
Forcepoint needed a content management system that members of the marketing department had ownership over. They needed to support different kinds and types of content, encourage content reuse and strategic linking, and promote deeper site engagement from visitors.
Improving Taxonomies for Better Content Relationships
By setting up new taxonomy vocabularies for Needs, Industries, and Environments, Forcepoint was able to unify site content. Products, resources, testimonials, and case studies were then tied to these new vocabularies to allow the site to surface highly relevant related content by leveraging these relationships across all content displays.
Location-Aware Content Surfacing
Visitors to the Forcepoint website from the United States need content relevant to North America, while visitors from Turkey need content relevant to the Middle East. By tagging site content for specific regions, Forcepoint prioritizes content relevant to your geographical location in addition to a visitor’s choice of language.
We launched the new Forcepoint website in January 2016.
