AT&T Expands Cyber Security Offerings

AT&T announced an expanded set of managed security solutions (MSS) and new capabilities on Tuesday, including a new mobile security solution set to be available later this year.

AT&T announced an expanded set of managed security solutions (MSS) and new capabilities on Tuesday, including a new mobile security solution set to be available later this year.

According to the announcement, the telecommunications giant’s growth plan includes providing customers with end-to-end protection in areas of security including network-based defense, cloud security, secure mobile business, and threat management.

“At the heart of these efforts is the recognition that customers are looking for comprehensive solutions that can be integrated across business environments, and provide improved visibility into the state of their own networks and impending threats,” the company said.

Recent and upcoming enhancements to the AT&T portfolio of security solutions include:

• AT&T plans to launch a new cyber security solution that combines network and device-level security controls with highly-secure virtual private networking, application security and a full suite of mobile device management capabilities. The solution, expected later this year, provides businesses with security for their mobile ecosystems, even if they’re not AT&T wireless customers.

AT&T Logo• AT&T has added Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) security assessments to its portfolio of consulting services to help organizations evaluate their ability to detect, resist, and respond to targeted cyber security threats. AT&T security consultants are certified in a variety of security competencies including: Security and Risk Management, Audit and Controls Review, Industry Regulations/Best Practices, Vendor Specific Certifications, and Security Investigations and Forensics.

• AT&T has doubled its network capacity to manage the growing volume of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks and recently added a DDoS protection option for customers deploying Web applications, including Content Delivery Networks (CDN).

“Security is at the very core of what we do as a company,” said Andy Daudelin, VP Security Services, AT&T Business Solutions. “From the security controls built right into the backbone of our network to our proprietary threat intelligence, we work to make security an enabler, not a limitation of business transformation.”

AT&T said it maintains a database with more than 1.2 million threat signatures and tracks hundreds of millions of security events daily.

While AT&T is offering these security solutions to its end clients, not all products and services offered are AT&T’s own solutions, as some are provided or offered by AT&T subsidiaries and partners under the AT&T brand.
