OTTAWA and RESTON, Va. -- Third Brigade (www.thirdbrigade.com), a security software company that specializes in host-based intrusion defense systems, today announced Nuvo offers its product as a managed security service.

NUVO provides remote management and protection of IT infrastructures for governments and businesses worldwide to maximize the availability of their computing infrastructure. Nuvo now offers Third Brigade’s host-based intrusion defense solution as part of MaxSecure, its portfolio of managed security services solutions. This service provides 24x7 monitoring, management and expertise so organizations can maximize the security of their business-critical information assets, while minimizing the costs associated with implementing a comprehensive, real-time, security posture.

“Protecting critical systems and data from the latest threats is a top priority for our clients,” said Phil Weaver, President and CEO of Nuvo. “Third Brigade’s host-based intrusion defense solution complements our portfolio of managed security services to enable clients to implement a defense-in-depth strategy, staying ahead of the latest security threats.”

Cyber criminals are increasingly able to bypass perimeter defenses, and are targeting software vulnerabilities in commercial and custom web applications. Third Brigade’s security solution shields these vulnerabilities, ensuring the availability of these applications, and the integrity and confidentiality of data. As such, it helps organizations to comply with strict regulatory requirements such as Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), and Management of Information Technology Security (MITS).

Third Brigade’s host-based intrusion defense system uses deep packet inspection to detect and prevent known and zero-day attacks. And by combining a software firewall with host-based intrusion detection and prevention, it dramatically reduces false positives and negatives.

“Nuvo’s world-class, managed security service allows organizations to very quickly and cost-effectively realize the benefits of host-based intrusion defense,” said Wael Mohamed, President and CEO of Third Brigade. “The simplicity of their approach –no software to purchase, install or manage, and low monthly per-server subscription costs – is very attractive.”
