AT&T has recently released two new enhancements to its cloud-based security program: the launch of a new web-based security administration tool, called the AT&T Security Center, and several improvements to the AT&T Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) defense protection.
The AT&T Security Center is available via AT&T's BusinessDirect Portal. The company also plans to introduce numerous other features through this portal, including new interactive security reporting for Network-Based Firewall self-servicing and Premises-Based Firewall and Managed Intrusion Detection capabilities, with additional reporting.
The improved generation of DDoS will be implemented within AT&T's existing network-based security infrastructure. It includes the capability to block known malicious hosts and application layer exploits, to defend against Web-based threats and botnets, and to protect all VoIP services and infrastructure. The new DDoS generation also includes continual proactive monitoring of customer traffic using learned data fed back into customers' traffic profiles and up to 40 Gbps surgical mitigation able to selectively identify and remove attack traffic from relevant sites.
Bill O'Hern, Assistant VP of Technology Security and Marketing with AT&T, said of the new products that “These new enhancements and tools demonstrate our ongoing commitment to investing, innovating and leading in managed cyber security services.” More information can be found at http://www.att.com/security.
