We recognize that every Service Provider has different needs, and that a one-size-fits-all approach simply won't work
Ottawa, ON and Reston, VA (PRWEB) September 28, 2007
Third Brigade, a security software company specializing in host intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS) today announced that it has expanded its partner program to address the unique requirements of Service Providers. Third Brigade Partner Force for Service Providers combines host IDS/IPS with highly flexible business terms including licensing, demand-driven purchasing, payment and other terms that support the diverse needs of Service Providers. Partners also receive access to a broad range of executive, technical, marketing and sales support, as well as training, to further help ensure their success.
The program is ideally suited to well-established Application Service Providers (ASPs), Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) and other Service Providers that want to generate more revenue, better meet customer demand for greater security, and further differentiate from competitors.
"We recognize that every Service Provider has different needs, and that a one-size-fits-all approach simply won't work," said Wael Mohamed, President and CEO of Third Brigade. "By offering highly flexible business terms, we're helping to ensure the success of Service Providers as they expand their offerings, and address the rapidly growing market for host-based security."
Third Brigade's host IDS/IPS protects mission critical systems, including Windows, Solaris (x86 and SPARC), Linux (Red Hat and SuSE) and other Unix platforms, from attacks that increasingly bypass or penetrate perimeter defenses.
Host IDS/IPS also allows Service Providers to be better prepared for, and more likely to pass, a SAS 70 Audit. The Audit represents that a Service Provider who hosts or processes data belonging to their customers has been through an in-depth audit of their control objectives and control activities, which often include controls over information technology and related processes. The requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 make SAS 70 audit reports even more important to the process of reporting on the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting.
