Third Brigade Intros Security Program

Third Brigade announced a new program designed for SIEM vendors

OTTAWA -- Third Brigade (www.thirdbrigade.com) today announced a new program designed for SIEM vendors that provides them with the support necessary to ensure efficient and tight integration with the Third Brigade host intrusion prevention system.

Third Brigade provides an integral source of host security information and is the first host intrusion prevention system that allows a SIM/SEM to actively respond to and change host-level security policies through its comprehensive web services interface.

“Our best-in-class host intrusion detection and prevention system provides critical protection for endpoints, and is a rich and valuable source of detailed, host-level security event information. We provide the response/remediation mechanism that is a key “leadership” feature for vendors in SIEM market.” said Brian O’Higgins, CTO of Third Brigade. “Increasingly, customers that have deployed a SIEM, or are planning to invest in one, are implementing host-based security as a standard part of their defense-in-depth strategy, so there is a responsibility on the industry to interoperate.”

There are no fees associated with the program, and SIEM vendors are provided with necessary software licenses, technical support and documentation required. Third Brigade’s open product architecture, and detailed, integration-specific documentation, ensures that integration can be completed quickly and simply, typically in as just a few days. The SIEM integration with Third Brigade Deep Security is then fully and rigorously tested, to provide interoperability assurance to the client enterprise. To leverage the deep synergies between host intrusion prevention and SIEM, the program also results in the identification and development of joint sales opportunities, or the strengthening of existing ones.

The primary benefit of this program to customers is the peace-of-mind that they can fully leverage their investments in both SIEM and host intrusion prevention, without having to incur costs and effort related to custom integration or support.

Third Brigade Deep Security (www.thirdbrigade.com/product.aspx?id=48) is an advanced, host intrusion defense system that brings proven network security approaches, including firewall and intrusion detection and prevention, down to individual networked computers and devices. It shields vulnerabilities in Windows, Linux and Unix operating systems, as well as enterprise and web applications from attacks that bypass or penetrate perimeter defenses.
