Third Brigade acquires OSSEC

I am happy, scared and excited at the same time. My little baby, the project I have been working for many years is growing up. Check out the announcement:

" OSSEC, the open source host-based intrusion detection project, has been snapped up by Third Brigade,
a commercial firm in the same information security sub-market. Terms of the deal, announced on Tuesday, were undisclosed.

Daniel Cid, creator and primary developer for OSSEC, has become the principal researcher at Third Brigade,
which has promised to continue contributing to the open source community with further editions of OSSEC.

Third Brigade plans to make its money from support and training. It also plans to benefit from the acquisition by rolling OSSEC's technology into its own technology portfolio."
