AT&T Recognized in Managed Security Service Providers Leaders Quadrant by Gartner

Dallas, Texas, December 17, 2012

Today’s cyber security and IT groups are tasked with managing and securing an influx of new connections on the corporate network. Businesses often look for help from a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) because they lack the internal expertise to deploy and manage security controls that must quickly adjust to constantly changing cyber threats. 

AT&T* today announced it has been recognized as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for MSSPs in North America, and also received a positive rating in the Gartner MarketScope for Managed Security Service reports in both Europe and Asia/Pacific**.  To view the full report, visit http://www.gartner.com/technology/reprints.do?id=1-1D1703L&ct=121204&st=sb.

“Most security services react to attacks after they have occurred and attempt to minimize the impact,” said Ed Amoroso, Chief Security Offer, AT&T. “However, our preventative approach is designed to help keep customer networks and applications running. We use ‘defense in depth’ security architecture with security features built into every network layer and every supporting process. Each security service in our portfolio provides a different and enhanced layer of protection.”

AT&T has long been a pioneer in the development of cyber security capabilities, with AT&T Labs and its cyber security organization working closely together to provide industry leading technology.
