DALLAS -- AT&T today announced the launch of AT&T Cloud Web Security for businesses of any size. The new offering will provide real-time protection against viruses, malware, and compromised web sites --- all without the need for on-site equipment. This enhancement to AT&T’s portfolio of managed security solutions will help organizations deploy new secure, cost-effective cloud service and web applications.

AT&T Cloud Web Security is built on Blue Coat Systems’ Security Policy and Enforcement Center. It enables customers to enforce consistent global security policies across wired, roaming, and mobile environments.

Reduced budgets, staff/skill shortages, and growing compliance and regulatory demands are forcing IT organizations to do more with less. Cloud-based security solutions from AT&T will allow customers to get more value from their IT staff to secure enterprise and employee assets.

AT&T Cloud Web Security also provides these benefits:

  • Reduced cost and complexity – As a user-based subscription, AT&T Cloud Web Security enables customers to pay only for what they need and scale their web threat protection on-demand, eliminating the need to buy, deploy and maintain on-site hardware or software.
  • Real-time, dynamic malware protection – AT&T Cloud WSS uses a combination of sophisticated, real-time analysis, malware scanning and shared threat intelligence from 75 million users to block suspicious and malicious web content. By blocking communications to command and control servers, the service also enables IT to quickly identify and quarantine infected systems.
  • Customized web application controls – Protect your network while enabling employees to use the applications that allow them to be more productive. Customers can set policies to manage application use based on a wide range of criteria, including user, group, applications, operations, postings, and media transfer controls.
  • Powerful, intuitive policy management and reporting – Industry-leading proxy and policy technologies allow administrators to quickly and easily enforce broad-based or detailed policies for network access and use – from small groups to hundreds of thousands of users – all in one simple configuration.

    A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
