AT&T Advances Network Security for Banner Pharmacaps Inc.

AT&T Helps Leading Softgel Company Ensure Network Security and Maintain Efficiency

High Point, North Carolina, February 19, 2007

AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) announced today an integration solution and infrastructure analysis service contract with Banner Pharmacaps. AT&T will establish a network-based firewall for the leading global drug delivery and proprietary healthcare products company, which will help secure Banner's operations in North America and the Netherlands.

Banner Pharmacaps is a leading producer of soft gelatin capsules in North America and maintains manufacturing plants in the United States, Europe, Canada and Mexico. Banner's drug production process is controlled and monitored through network systems beginning with the first steps of the manufacturing process through packaging and shipping, and the company must meet strict FDA requirements to ensure the safety of its healthcare products. AT&T's firewall and security management services bring to bear advanced network technology in securing Banner's manufacturing and business operations. Banner can now better standardize security processes and procedures, saving time and money while protecting the safety of its products.

"Banner is committed to developing the most innovative drug delivery systems and technologies, so we need network security and operability that can keep up with our mission," said Bill Bissinger of Banner Pharmacaps. "AT&T's security offerings and global reach give us not only what we need; they actually help us improve our business by increasing the efficiency of Banner's security procedures and maintaining scalability of the network as we grow."
