Organizations prefer our approach to PCI because Third Brigade not only helps them achieve and maintain compliance between audits, but it is also dramatically less expensive to deploy

Third Brigade ( ), a security software company specializing in host intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS), today announced an upcoming Webcast featuring security and PCI expert analyst, Diana Kelley, founder of Security Curve. The webcast, titled " PCI Compliance: Cut Costs Not Corners," will be held on Thursday, April 3rd, 2008 at 2:00 PM EDT and will detail two PCI compliance business cases where Third Brigade's innovative approach offers cost savings to organizations faced with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance audits. This new approach uses a software-based solution to deliver comprehensive network segmentation, virtual patching, application firewall, and intrusion detection and prevention in a way that saves customers money, reduces deployment complexity and delivers greater security.

In addition, just released today, Third Brigade has sponsored Diana Kelley's podcast titled "PCI Compliance: Re-Thinking Protection Inside the Box". In this podcast, Diana Kelley discusses the areas of PCI compliance where a host-based approach may prove to be a cost-effective alternative to physical separate and additional hardware based network devices.

"It's time to take a second look at your PCI DSS compliance projects and consider host-based security capabilities like those provided by Third Brigade," said Diana Kelley, Partner and Founder, Security Curve. "Third Brigade protects cardholder data at the source, resulting in strong cardholder protection at a very attractive price point with the potential to save millions of dollars."
