AtlantiCare Selects Third Brigade Host Intrusion Prevention System to Further Enhance Security of Data, Applications and Systems












Ottawa, ON, and Reston, VA (PRWEB) March 22, 2007

Third Brigade , a security software company that specializes in host intrusion prevention systems, today announced the selection of its software by AtlantiCare , a regional, not-for-profit healthcare organization based in southeastern New Jersey with more than 4,400 employees and 60 locations.

Healthcare organizations rely heavily on critical e-health and enterprise systems that are increasingly accessible via the Internet. As a result, it’s become more challenging and important to protect the availability and integrity of these systems, and the confidentially of sensitive patient and medical data. Host intrusion prevention is a security best-practice and complements the company’s defense-in-depth strategy.

“We recognize the importance of staying ahead of the latest threats, and implementing security best practices to protect our critical e-health systems, and to ensure patient safety and confidentiality.” said Daniel Morreale, CIO of AtlantiCare. “Third Brigade’s host intrusion prevention system reduces vulnerabilities by shielding us from known and zero-hour threats. And by acting as a virtual patch, it shields hard-to-patch and unpatchable systems, and allows us to test and deploy vendor-supplied patches more thoroughly and efficiently.”

Third Brigade Deep Security brings proven network security approaches, including firewall and intrusion detection and prevention, down to individual computers and devices. It shields vulnerabilities in Windows, Linux and Unix operating systems, as well as enterprise and web applications common to healthcare providers.

“Third Brigade helps AtlantiCare comply with tough industry regulations such as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley, and Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA),” said Wael Mohamed, President and CEO of Third Brigade. “Healthcare leaders like AtlantiCare are being proactive in ensuring their EHR and other medical and administrative systems are properly secured from cyber attacks.”

About AtlantiCare

AtlantiCare is a regional healthcare organization based in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, whose more than 4,460 employees serve the healthcare needs of the community at more than 60 locations. It includes AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center (ARMC), the AtlantiCare Foundation, AtlantiCare Health Plans, AtlantiCare Behavioral Health and AtlantiCare Health Services. ARMC earned J.D. Power and Associates Distinguished Hospital designation for the third consecutive year for its commitment to providing “An Outstanding Inpatient Experience,” in July, 2006. ARMC became the 105th hospital in the nation to attain status as a Magnet™ designated hospital in March of 2004.

CitiStreet is one of the largest and most experienced global benefits providers servicing over 11 million plan participants across all markets, with $ 200 billion in assets under administration in the US for defined contribution, defined benefit and health and welfare plans of corporate, government, health care, Taft-Hartley and not-for-profit organizations. CitiStreet, a joint venture between State Street Corp. and Citigroup, brings together the unique expertise and strengths of two trusted financial institutions.

Third Brigade software will allow us to provide additional security which builds upon our existing network and host-based security controls. “

“The financial services sector is demanding when it comes to IT security,” said Wael Mohamed, President and CEO of Third Brigade. “But our open architecture allows companies to readily integrate host-based intrusion defense with security information and event management (SIEM) and other infrastructure investments, to create their own security rules, and to have complete visibility of the defense process.”

Creative Crafts and Stickers to Host it’s First Annual Charity Cyber Scrapbooking Crop

Creative Crafts and Stickers to Host it’s First Annual Charity Cyber Scrapbooking Crop










Markham, Ontario (PRWEB) September 11, 2006

From September 27 to October 3, 2006, Jen Walker, owner of Creative Crafts and Stickers.com, will be hosting her first Annual Charity Cyber Scrapbooking Crop. This event will benefit the Rich Little Special Care Nursery (SCN) (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit – NICU) at the Civic Campus of the Ottawa Hospital (located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada).

In the past two years, Jen’s sister has had two premature babies, with the second one born this past May. She is so very impressed with the care and dedication that the Neonatal staff showed her sister, brother in law and her premature babies. Jen believes that children are our future and getting a supportive and loving start is very important to premature babies. The intent of this crop is to give back to the Special Care Nursery and allow them to better support other families who need their services.

This Special Care Nursery Charity Cyber Crop will include scrapbooking challenges, online classes, games, prizes, and more. Thanks to the truly amazing support and contributions from manufacturers in the scrapbooking and stamping industry, there will also be a raffle and silent auctions. Jen will also be personally donating a minimum of 10% of all sales made during the event to this Special Care Nursery. The first 50 orders will also receive a goodie bag filled with items from the crops sponsors. We are also asking that all participants create Congratulations cards for the nurses to give to the families with babies in the SCN.

The Cyber Crop will take place online at Creative Crafts and Stickers.com and will be held in the message board, chat room and gallery. We hope you will join us for this fantastic event, or consider making an online donation for the Special Care Nursery.

Councillor Candidate Corry Burke Proposes Ottawa Bids to Host the 2022 Commonwealth Games

Corry Burke, Councilor Candidate for Rideau-Rockcliffe, today announced some of the City wide initiatives he would propose should he be rewarded on October 25th with the opportunity to represent Rideau-Rockcliffe on Ottawa City Council. His vision for Ottawa includes creating a centre of excellence for the multimedia industry, granting City advisory committees ex-officio status on all City Committees, and not the least of which is his proposal that the City of Ottawa bid on hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

“Ottawa has not had an injection of athletic infrastructure of any significance since the Centennial year in 1967,” Corry said. “There is a tremendous lack of high performance training centers in our city. It’s the rare athlete that is able to make Ottawa their year round training home due to this void.” With a deadline for a submission of interest over 4 years away, Corry believes the time is needed to put together a well prepared and detailed plan. The result of a successful bid is an opportunity to host an international competition that will increase the region’s profile beyond all previous endeavors. “The resulting infrastructure legacy would provide the community with facilities that would offer decades of support. As well, it would provide ongoing training facilities and hosting facilities for numerous high profile competitions well into the future,” states Corry. “This is a city building initiative that requires effort and champions. We lost the opportunity to host the Games in 1994 to Victoria. I want to assemble a winning bid for 2022.”

Corry believes that a truly effective councillor takes into account issues that affect the entire city and not just those issues in his own backyard. “I absolutely think of the Rideau-Rockcliffe ward first and foremost but you have to consider the good of the entire city and the bigger picture as well.” For establishing ward-specific priorities, Corry has outlined a program he refers to as his 100 Day Pledge. “My agenda as councillor will be shaped by the consultations I have proposed with the residents of Rideau-Rockcliffe.” This approach would have Corry and local residents determining an agreed upon list of priorities with measurable milestones and the ability for all residents to track their progress online – this would be completed over the first 100 Days following the swearing in ceremony. Corry hopes this lends itself to the greater accountability that the residents of Ottawa greatly desire and deserve. “At any time and for any reason these priorities can be reassessed by the community, and the status of any item on the list can be scrutinized.”

With the elections now less than a month away the municipal election activity is heating up. This election has drawn the largest number of candidates in Ottawa’s history “On October 25th, the face of Ottawa’s Municipal Council is going to look quite a bit different than it does today,” says Corry. “I think the opportunity for change, producing fresh ideas and fresh faces, is greatly needed and I am working hard to be part of that change.”
