According to AT&T, the most critical areas of security include network-based defense, cloud security, secure mobile businesses and threat management with customers looking for comprehensive, integrated solutions that provide improved visibility of possible threats as well as their own networks. This has prompted AT&T to get serious about security; and they should, especially since they manage approximately 24,000 security devices and about one million seats for cloud-based security services!
Launching later this year is AT&T’s expanded set of managed security solutions (MMS), new capabilities, including the first, all-in-one, mobile security solution and the expansion of their cyber security portfolio.
AT&T’s enhancements to their security solutions portfolio include:
- The launch of a new cyber security solution: combines network and device-level security controls with highly-secure, virtual private networking, application security and a full suite of mobile device management capabilities.
- Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) assessments: helps organizations evaluate their ability to detect, resist and respond to targeted cyber security threats.
- Double network capacity: provides greater customer protection against DDoS attacks by dispersing and absorbing malicious traffic before reaching customer networks.
“Security is at the very core of what we do as a company,” stated VP Security Services, AT&T Business Solutions, Andy Daudelin. “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. That’s one reason why we have a 98 percent retention rate among our security clients.”
