Third Brigade, a security software company specializing in host intrusion defense, yesterday announced that it has been selected by the New Jersey Hospital Association (NJHA) as the preferred provider of host intrusion detection and prevention systems for New Jersey healthcare organizations. Third Brigade software will help ensure the availability of e-health systems and compliance with laws and regulations requiring privacy and security for Protected Health Information (PHI).
Under the three-year agreement, NJHA provides access to Third Brigade’s software to NJHA's 112-member hospitals and other partners through NJHA's Strategic Partner Program. The preferred provider arrangement will enable the organization's members to purchase host intrusion detection and prevention software and related services through NJHA. NJHA has also elected to implement Third Brigade’s software at its headquarters in Princeton, N.J., to protect its own applications, data and hosts.
