Third Brigade offers free security for up to 100 virtual machines

Third Brigade is a security company that offers a modular solution including IDS, IPS, firewall, file integrity checker, and more modules under the name of Deep Security.

Today the company enters a dangerous territory by offering a scaled-down version of this platform to protect up to 100 virtual machines for free.
The lightweight edition is called VM Protection, offers IDS, firewall and file integrity monitoring and it’s integrated with VMware vCenter.

The danger lays in the communication, which claims thinks like “deploy cloud-ready security” and “achieve compliance with PCI and other regulations”.

The new security columnist that is proud to host, Christofer Hoff, already described on his personal blog the lack of security regulations in virtualization and cloud computing areas.
And he’s so right that VMware had to join the PCI Security Standards Council to influence the Data Security Standard.

How Third Brigade can promise something that not even the PCI council can?
