Third Brigade Announces Its Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) Now Supports Sun Solaris

Third Brigade Announces Its Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) Now Supports Sun Solaris










Ottawa, ON and Reston, VA (PRWEB) November 29, 2005

Third Brigade, Inc. (http://www.thirdbrigade.com) today announced that its intrusion prevention system supports the Solaris ™ 8, Solaris ™ 9 and the Solaris™ 10 Operating Systems (OS). Third Brigade Deep Security 3, which began shipping in July, allows Sun Microsystems’ customers in government, healthcare, financial services, telecommunications, higher education and other sectors to maintain control over IT assets that are threatened by growing security risks. Intrusion prevention provides a last line of defense against a broad range of network attacks, helps ensure compliance with SOX, HIPAA, FISMA, CISP and other regulations, and maintain business continuity.

“Targeted attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in both custom-built and COTS applications are becoming more prevalent, sophisticated and difficult to defend against,” said Wael Mohamed, President and CEO of Third Brigade. “We are excited to provide the Solaris community with an advanced, proactive, host-based intrusion prevention system that allows enterprises to maintain control of their systems,” he added.

Third Brigade Deep Security (http://www.thirdbrigade.com/products/index.html) comprises two main components: Deep Security Manager and Deep Security Agent. The Manager is a role-based, central management platform that allows administrators to create and enforce security policies across Solaris, Linux, Windows, and other types of hosts in large IT environments, with little management overhead. The Agent, which now runs on the Solaris 8, Solaris 9 and the Solaris 10 OS, is a small-footprint software component that combines a high-performance stateful firewall, and deep packet inspection. The stateful firewall reduces the attack surface of hosts by controlling network access to intended services. Deep packet inspection shields vulnerabilities from being exploited by filtering out known and unknown attacks and protocol anomalies.

“With Solaris 10 we’ve added advanced security features such as process rights management previously found only in our military grade trusted Solaris product and new features such as Secure Execution and Solaris Containers,” said Tom Goguen, VP Software Product Marketing, Sun Microsystems, Inc. “We welcome support for Third Brigade’s intrusion prevention system on the most secure operating system we’ve ever released.”

About Third Brigade

Third Brigade provides host-based intrusion prevention systems to financial services, government, health care, telecommunications and other organizations that need to implement security best practices as part of a defense-in-depth strategy. Our Deep Security solutions give you greater control of your business. They stop network attacks before they impact hosts and web applications, help ensure compliance with regulations and policies, and maximize the performance of your people, processes and hosts. Unlike others, Third Brigade provides an innovative hybrid approach, a positive security model, proactive defense, and a powerful administrative platform.

HealthGrades Announces Launch of New Physician Web Portal

HealthGrades Announces Launch of New Physician Web Portal











Denver, Colo. (Vocus/PRWEB) April 13, 2011

HealthGrades, the leading online destination for patients researching and selecting physicians, announced today the launch of a new web-based tool that empowers physicians and practice administrators to take control of their online reputation. This free, secure web application encourages ongoing physician engagement to verify and modify the information HealthGrades makes public in more than 750,000 online physician profiles. The HealthGrades Physician & Provider Portal is being officially unveiled at this week’s American Medical Group Association (AMGA) annual conference in Washington D.C.

“As a physician, I understand the professional challenge doctors face in managing online information,” said Dr. Rick May, HealthGrades Vice President of clinical quality services. “But public reporting is here to stay and will likely only increase in scope. It is time physicians leveraged the power of the web to benefit their patients and their practice. As the most heavily trafficked physician search site, HealthGrades is uniquely positioned to help.”

HealthGrades’ enhanced Portal is designed to enable physicians to take control of their online reputation, offering them the opportunity to respond publicly to patient satisfaction ratings, and assisting doctors in actively attracting the most appropriate patients. For example, adding customized and detailed information about medical areas of expertise, and a brief description of practice style helps patients better match with the right physician who meets their specific needs and expectations. Recent research has shown that the physician-patient relationship is strengthened when patients see themselves as similar to their physicians in personal beliefs, values, and communication, ultimately leading to better diagnoses and improved health outcomes.

HealthGrades is the most highly trafficked physician search site and helps 100 million patient visitors a year – more than all other provider ratings sites combined. Patients search more than 12 million HealthGrades physician profiles monthly and HealthGrades’ web properties are recognized by comScore as one of the top five health information destinations. Updates to doctors’ online profiles are shared across numerous online consumer web properties through relationships with Google, Bing and other health content distributors.

HealthGrades’ new, free physician Portal offers physicians:


The ability to edit existing information and enhance their profile with a photo or video; custom description of practice philosophy, specific areas of research or interest, procedures performed, conditions treated, and hospital affiliations

The option to respond publicly to patient satisfaction survey results

Tools to help practices collect more patient experience feedback

Customized reports about profile activity, including patient satisfaction and patient search     volume with peer comparisons

About HealthGrades

HealthGrades is America’s most trusted, independent source of physician information and hospital quality outcomes. HealthGrades’ online properties are the nation’s leading destination for physician search and empower more than 200 million consumers annually to make informed healthcare decisions.

NavigationArts Announces Launch of Redesigned MedEdPORTAL











A screenshot of AAMC’s MedEdPORTAL.


McLean, Virginia (PRWEB) August 09, 2011

NavigationArts, a strategic web consultancy, is pleased to announce the launch of a dynamic medical education portal for the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). MedEdPORTAL is a free, open education resource and was designed to promote educational scholarship and collaboration by facilitating the open exchange of peer-reviewed health education teaching and assessment resources. Currently, more than 10,000 health education institutions are utilizing MedEdPORTAL resources – representing over 190 countries around the globe.

NavigationArts was specifically engaged to redesign and rearchitect the existing site, which was not leveraging the full capabilities of a content management system and provided no opportunity for content reuse. The new information architecture delivers an optimized user experience, creates opportunities to reuse and share content, and lays a foundation for a suite of products that change the traditional way of accessing and utilizing health education materials. MedEdPORTAL’s flexibility provides extraordinary possibilities to customize and promote content through a multi-faceted, socially enabled learning experience.

AAMC Chief Academic Officer, John E. Prescott, MD, notes, “MedEdPORTAL has played an increasingly prominent role in the education of the healthcare provider of tomorrow. I have no doubt that these new enhancements will result in significant benefits to students and educators, and ultimately improve the health of the public.”

In addition, MedEdPORTAL has partnered with the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) in order to peer review and publish oral health content. The website redesign allows for interface customization while maintaining the full capabilities and accessibility of the MedEdPORTAL website and repository. The ADEA-customized MedEdPORTAL will launch in August. This new structure aims to accommodate partnerships with the remaining allied health professions to further drive inter-professionalism and innovation in health education.
