Third Brigade unveils Deep Security 6.0

Deep Security, adds functionality for file-integrity monitoring, log inspection and connectivity

Third Brigade Tuesday unveiled the sixth version of its server-based host firewall and intrusion detection/prevention software, Deep Security, adding functionality for file-integrity monitoring, log inspection and connectivity with VMware's vCenter management server.

Deep Security 6.0 now includes a method for file-integrity monitoring based on digital-hash technology, according to Bill McGee, founder and vice president of product services. "For registry and file programs, you can configure it to exclude changing certain files. And you may want to know if unauthorized software has been installed," McGee says. "We're looking for potentially malicious or unauthorized changes."

Deep Security 6.0 also now includes a log-inspection capability based on technology Third Brigade gained in its acquisition last June of open source software provider OSSEC. OSSEC software remains available under open source terms, McGee adds.

"The purpose of the log inspection is to help get high-quality alerts to the customer's security information management," McGee says.

Another new feature in Deep Security 6.0 is what McGee calls "virtual-sensor integration," which allows Third Brigade's management components to connect and receive information directly from VMware's management component, vCenter Server. "We're connecting to vCenter via the API to pull in the state of the data center," McGee says.

Down the road Third Brigade may pursue something similar for other virtual environments, including those from Microsoft and Citrix XenSource.

Deep Security 6.0 is offered as functional modules, and starts at US$150 per server for 500 servers up to US$600 per server.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
