Third Brigade Presents at HIMSS

Third Brigade demonstrates latest host intrusion prevention system for EHR applications at HIMSS '07

OTTAWA -- Third Brigade (, a security software company that specializes in host intrusion prevention systems, today announced Deep Security 5, the newest release of its product, will be presented, and will demonstrate how healthcare organizations can:

  • protect EHR and other systems from known and zero-day attacks;

  • implement security best practices to protect sensitive information and comply with HIPAA regulations;

  • shield vulnerabilities in critical and hard to patch systems, allowing patches to be deployed on a more efficient, scheduled basis,

    Healthcare organizations rely heavily on critical EHR, e-health and enterprise systems that are increasingly accessible via the Internet. As a result it’s become more challenging and important to protect the availability and integrity of these systems, and the confidentially of sensitive patient and medical data.

    “Protecting patient and medical information is of the utmost importance to us, and to our customers,” said Stanley Crane, CTO of Allscripts, the leading U.S. provider of clinical software, connectivity and information solutions. “We’ve concluded that host intrusion prevention is a highly recommended component to ensuring a complete and sound security posture for EHR Systems."
