PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT COMPARISON

        The following graph compares the cumulative total return of the Company's common stock to the weighted average return of stocks of companies included in the Nasdaq Stock Market—U.S. and a Nasdaq peer group index consisting of Computer and Data Processing Services companies from March 28, 2000 (the date the Company's common stock began to trade publicly) through December 31, 2004. The Company's fiscal year ends on December 31. The graph assumes $100 was invested at the close of trading on March 28, 2000 in the Company's common stock and in each index. The total return for each of the Company's common stock, the Nasdaq Stock Market—U.S. and the Nasdaq Computer and Data Processing Services Index assumes the reinvestment of dividends, although dividends have not been declared on the Company's common stock. The Nasdaq Stock Market—U.S. tracks the aggregate price performance of equity securities of companies traded on the Nasdaq Stock Market. The Nasdaq Computer and Data Processing Services Index consists of companies with a Standard Industrial Classification Code identifying them as Computer and Data Processing Services companies. The stockholder return shown on the graph below should not be considered indicative of future stockholder returns and the Company will not make or endorse any predictions as to future stockholder returns.

amended, that might incorporate this Proxy Statement or future filings made by the Company under those statutes, the Compensation Committee Report, the Audit Committee Report and the stock Performance Measurement Comparison are not "soliciting material," are not deemed filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into any of those prior filings or into any future filings made by the Company under those statutes irrespective of any general incorporation language contained in any such filing.


CERTAIN TRANSACTIONS

        Stock option grants to the Company's Directors are described under the caption "Compensation of Directors."

        The Company has entered into indemnification agreements with each of its Directors and officers. These agreements require the Company, among other things, to indemnify each Director or officer against certain expenses, including attorneys' fees, judgments, fines and settlements paid by such individual in connection with any action, suit or proceeding arising out of such individual's status or service as a Director or officer. These agreements also require the Company to advance expenses incurred by the individual in connection with any proceeding against him or her with respect to which such individual may be entitled to indemnification by the Company.

        Some of the Company's stockholders are entitled to have their shares registered by the Company for resale.


HOUSEHOLDING OF PROXY MATERIALS

        The SEC has adopted rules that permit companies and intermediaries (e.g., brokers) to satisfy the delivery requirements for proxy statements and annual reports with respect to two or more stockholders sharing the same address by delivering a single proxy statement addressed to those stockholders. This process, which is commonly referred to as "householding," potentially means extra convenience for stockholders and cost savings for companies.

        This year, a number of brokers with account holders who are Websense stockholders will be "householding" our proxy materials. A single proxy statement will be delivered to multiple stockholders sharing an address unless contrary instructions have been received from the affected stockholders. Once you have received notice from your broker that they will be "householding" communications to your address, "householding" will continue until you are notified otherwise or until you revoke your consent. If, at any time, you no longer wish to participate in "householding" and would prefer to receive a separate proxy statement and annual report, please notify your broker, direct your written request to Websense, Inc., 10240 Sorrento Valley Road, San Diego, California 92121, Attention: Corporate Secretary, or call 877-273-7379. Stockholders who currently receive multiple copies of the proxy statement at their address and would like to request "householding" of their communications should contact their broker.


ANNUAL REPORT

        A copy of the Annual Report of the Company for the 2004 fiscal year has been mailed concurrently with this Proxy Statement to all stockholders entitled to notice of and to vote at the annual meeting. The Annual Report is not incorporated into this Proxy Statement and is not considered proxy solicitation material.


FORM 10-K

        The Company filed an Annual Report on Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission on or about March 4, 2005. The Company will mail without charge to stockholders, upon

25



written request, a copy of the Form 10-K, including the financial statements, schedule and list of exhibits. Requests should be sent to Websense, Inc., 10240 Sorrento Valley Road, San Diego, California 92121, Attention: Corporate Secretary.
