AT&T today announced an expanded set of managed security solutions (MSS) and new capabilities, including the first all-in-one mobile security solution to be launched later this year.
The company will discuss the expansion of its cyber security portfolio at the 15th Annual AT&T Cyber Security Conference in New York City.
Andy Daudelin, VP Security Services, AT&T Business Solutions will outline the company's aggressive growth plan to provide customers with end-to-end protection in today's most critical areas of security including network-based defense, cloud security, secure mobile business, and threat management.
AT&T plans to launch a new cyber security solution that combines network and device-level security controls with 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 has also 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.
In addition, the company has doubled its network capacity to manage the volume of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks and recently added a DDoS protection option for customers deploying critical Web applications, including Content Delivery Networks (CDN).
With hundreds of security experts and multiple security operations centers deployed in the United States and globally, AT&T utilizes patented analytic capabilities to process 265 billion flow records and 6.5 trillion packets each day. The company also maintains a malicious entity database with more than 1.2 million threat signatures and tracks hundreds of millions of security events daily.
