DALLAS -- AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) today announced a data services contract with American Nuclear Insurers (ANI), a joint underwriting association that provides liability insurance for nuclear facilities throughout the United States. Under the terms of the contract, AT&T will serve as ANI's primary data services provider, delivering AT&T Secure E-mail Gateway service and AT&T Web Security to the company's headquarters.

AT&T Secure E-mail Gateway service will provide ANI with network-based e-mail security and message management. The service will help ensure the integrity of e-mail messages before entering the ANI network by providing a first line of defense that safely builds a bridge between the Internet and the network. ANI will also use the solution's E-mail Continuity feature, which will support an online e-mail database for the company's e-mail correspondence. With E-mail Continuity, the service maintains a copy of e-mail and attachments separate from the production environment. Should ANI's mail server or Internet connection fail, ANI employees can immediately switch to a Web-based e-mail client provided by AT&T. When normal service is restored, AT&T will synchronize with ANI's mail server.

"Due to the nature of our business, it is critical that we have e-mail and network security measures in place, ensuring secure employee-customer communications and data backup," said Daniel Antion, vice president, American Nuclear Insurers. "By implementing security services provided by AT&T, we are confident that our network will be protected from viruses or other service interruptions, resulting in better productivity and enhanced customer service."
