OTTAWA and RESTON, Va. -- Third Brigade (www.thirdbrigade.com), a security software company specializing in host intrusion defense, today announced that it has been selected by the New Jersey Hospital Association (NJHA) as the preferred provider of host intrusion detection and prevention systems for New Jersey healthcare organizations. Third Brigade software will help ensure the availability of e-health systems and compliance with laws and regulations requiring privacy and security for Protected Health Information (PHI).
Under the three-year agreement, NJHA provides access to Third Brigades software to NJHA's 112 member hospitals and other partners through NJHA's Strategic Partner Program. The preferred provider arrangement will enable the organization's members to purchase host intrusion detection and prevention software and related services through NJHA. NJHA has also elected to implement Third Brigades software at its headquarters in Princeton, N.J., to protect its own applications, data and hosts.
"Our healthcare providers recognize the importance of staying ahead of the latest threats and implementing security best practices to protect their critical e-health systems, said Joseph Carr, CIO of NJHA. With its recent successes, Third Brigade has established itself as a market leader for host intrusion detection and prevention in healthcare. After reviewing Third Brigade, we understood why so many organizations are choosing their software. Were pleased to be able to offer Third Brigades security software to our members and other partners."
