Third Brigade Demonstrates Cloud Computing Security That Maximizes Cloud Deployment Choices

Securing Private and Public Cloud Resources, Third Brigade Free Software Protects Virtual Machines in 29 Countries to Help Mitigate Risks

CANNES, France, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- VMworld Europe -- Third Brigade (http://www.thirdbrigade.com), experts in server and application protection, today announced it is demonstrating its Third Brigade VM Protection software in the VMware vCloud Pavilion. Third Brigade will showcase this free software for cloud computing security in VMware infrastructure-based private cloud environments, on vCloud service providers, as well as on public cloud services such as Amazon EC2. This demonstrated flexibility maximizes cloud deployment choices available to organizations. Third Brigade VM Protection, already in use in 29 countries, is an ideal solution for CIOs pursuing cloud computing initiatives and for organizations having to respond today to targeted cloud deployments.

"Many business units will be deploying cloud resources in 2009, whether CIOs know it or not," said Bill McGee, vice president of products and technology at Third Brigade. "Cloud computing requires a shift away from exclusive reliance on traditional perimeter security measures, and a recognition that with the speed and ease of cloud computing, more and more business resources will be placed in private or public cloud environments."

Cloud computing presents IT professionals with unique security and compliance challenges, and Third Brigade is committed to providing solutions specifically developed to help mitigate these risks. Third Brigade VM Protection software promotes safer cloud deployments by protecting the virtual machines that are created for, or moved to, cloud environments. VM Protection enables active, auditable security policies to be applied to these virtual machines.

Ideal for use by enterprises and service providers in order to fully utilize their virtualization environments, Third Brigade VM Protection provides:

    --  IDS, Firewall, Integrity Monitoring and Log Inspection
    --  Out-of-the box configurations (security profiles) for Microsoft(R)
        Windows(R) and Red Hat(R) 5 Linux servers
    --  Integration with VMware(R) vCenter(TM) to achieve efficient enterprise
        deployment
    --  Seamless migration to Third Brigade Deep Security for enhanced
        protection and additional support for PCI compliance

Multiple layers of protection are combined in a single software agent to increase security and gain visibility into malicious activity targeting virtual machines. Third Brigade VM Protection deploys quickly, is centrally managed, and is integrated with VMware vCenter to simplify deployment. More information on the Third Brigade VM Protection free software can be found on the VMware website at: http://www.vmware.com/security/resources/thirdbrigade.html. Visit the Third Brigade pod in the VMware vCloud Pavilion at VMworld Europe to witness a live demonstration of cloud computing security in action.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
