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.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

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.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
