AT&T Cybersecurity Introduces a New Managed Endpoint Security Solution

AT&T Cybersecurity | April 20, 2021

Through its partnership with SentinelOne, AT&T* has introduced a managed endpoint security solution. AT&T Managed Endpoint Security with SentinelOne correlates endpoint threat identification with a single software agent that combines Antivirus, Endpoint Protection, Endpoint Detection and Response, and IoT security functions. The new solution protects endpoints from malware and other cyberattacks while still monitoring increasingly sophisticated vulnerabilities in a corporate network or cloud system.

AT&T Managed Endpoint Security with SentinelOne includes threat monitoring and management by AT&T Security Operations Center (SOC) analysts 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Customers will benefit from a single SOC team delivering constant surveillance of separate threat detection stacks for better network visibility and quicker endpoint threat detection when combined with AT&T Managed Threat Detection and Response.

Why is this important?

Businesses are faced with expanding network perimeters that need security. Endpoint cyberattacks and adversary sophistication are on the rise. As a result, SOC teams can become overburdened with alerts and data that have a little background for identifying problems. This is particularly difficult when tracking endpoints for security and identification in both on-premises and cloud environments.

The willingness of SOC teams to view threats holistically from a single agent is critical for reacting to threats effectively and confidently. To do this, threat identification and response on endpoints need to be coordinated and automated by correlated security alerts. AT&T Managed Endpoint Security scales and augments security departments that are understaffed or overburdened.

What makes this new cybersecurity solution different?

AT&T Managed Endpoint Security with SentinelOne monitors any process that happens on and between each endpoint, using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning on the agent to detect and counteract threats at machine speed.
The autonomous agent protects an endpoint even though it is turned off, allowing today's remote workers to function.

AT&T, as one of the world's leading Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs), recognizes that the network edge is continuously shifting and expanding, which can generate security gaps that must be identified with greater visibility. AT&T Managed Endpoint Security with Sentinel One provides the visibility and operates to secure you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. AT&T SOC analysts have trusted experts who have specialist threat hunting, monitoring, and response capability.

To secure your endpoints, AT&T and SentinelOne have combined their systems and enabled coordinated and automatic incident response. Additional integrations between AT&T Alien Labs, SentinelOne, and the AT&T SOC add layers of context for the SOC management team to obtain greater insights that contribute to improved and quicker threat detection and response.

ACS has the solitary U.S. government-affirmed Voice over IP ("VoIP") and Video Teleconference ("VTC") Cross Domain Solution ("CDS") just as the business' most exceptional Full Motion Video ("FMV") sifting ability – usefulness basic to CDS activities in a time of robots and cameras. The obtaining gives Owl a more extensive scope of guaranteed network border guard arrangements than any rival on the lookout. Owl, upheld by private speculation firm DC Capital Partners, has been a main supplier of CDS to the U.S. Branch of Defense ("DoD") and Intelligence Community for over 20 years.

Owl's Cross Domain Solutions offer the most elevated level of organization edge security, far surpassing the capacities of firewalls and other ordinary organization protections. Owl's items are the decision for ensuring the country's most delicate organizations and frameworks against assault. Ongoing episodes have exhibited the failure of inheritance firewalls to forestall cyberattacks against basic business and working frameworks and cloud-based applications. The blend of Owl and ACS's innovation offers a full continuum of CDS items that give equipment upheld space partition and layers of information separating confirmation instead of a solitary organization line checkpoint with insignificant substance sifting. Arrangements like firewalls that worked 25 years back as an organization insurance approach are not, at this point compelling against country state quality assaults. As country state assaults increment, the methodologies utilized by state entertainers start to saturate the criminal side of cyberattacks. Powerful network safety presently requires a coordinated, multi-layered framework with information diode equipment parts in gatekeepers which perform escalated information assessment and confirmation. The up and coming age of insurance, coming out now and based on a mix of Owl and ACS innovation, installs CDS usefulness in incredibly low-inactivity, unmodifiable equipment. Thomas J.

Owl has always been an early mover, the first to develop hardware-enforced network protection and now the first to offer a hardware-enforced CDS that can be embedded." "Owl has been rapidly moving towards this number one position for the last couple of years," commented Robert Stalick, President and CEO of Owl. "With the addition of ACS, the last piece has fallen into place. Owl is now the clear leader in accredited Cross Domain Solution offerings, with the widest range of capabilities and products – solving problems from tactical to enterprise in data, voice, and video; for government, critical infrastructure and commercial enterprises." Jerry B. Chernock, Partner at DC Capital, added, "Clearly we need to address the deficiency of firewalls. There is a motivation behind why our customers demand Cross Domain Solutions and not exclusively on firewalls. Late assaults, including a security break at an unmistakable U.S. based network protection firm and a few U.S. Government organizations, have accentuated the requirement for knowledge, military, basic framework and corporate customers to rapidly develop how they secure their organizations." "The sophistication of these technologies cannot be overstated," said Ken Walker, Chief Technology Officer at Owl.
