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.

JupiterOne Recognized as a Sample Vendor for Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM) in Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Cyber Risk Management, 2022

JupiterOne | August 19, 2022

JupiterOne, the industry's leading provider of cyber asset attack surface management (CAASM) technology, today announced that it was named as a Sample Vendor for CAASM in the latest release of the Gartner Hype Cycle for Cyber Risk Management, 2022. According to Gartner, "In 2022, the global risk landscape continues to be impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic conditions, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, labor shortage, worsening climate change, and inflation. In particular, the increased inflation rate and labor market tightness mean that organizations must do more with fewer resources." The Gartner report notes that security and risk management (SRM) leaders continue to struggle to: "Position risk management as a decision-making practice. Either because of their rigid focus on framework-based controls or inability to scale their security and risk controls for individual projects Inform cyber and technology decisions in an ever-expanding operating ecosystem Gain sufficient transparency in evaluating environmental, social and governance risks and incidents, local and worldwide. Mitigate global supply chain risks as these risks continue to form a web of complexity and volatility. Look for ways to automate and inform risk assessment with data-driven insights." One solution category that addresses these challenges is the cyber asset attack surface management (CAASM) space, where solutions aggregate and track assets such as endpoints, servers, devices, and applications. By consolidating internal and external cyber assets, users can use queries to find gaps in coverage for security tools such as vulnerability assessment and endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools. JupiterOne pioneered a graph-based approach to CAASM that allows customers to track and monitor IP addresses and analyze and map all intra-asset relationships. As the Gartner analysts explained, "CAASM enables security teams to improve basic security hygiene by ensuring security controls, security posture, and asset exposure are understood and remediated. Organizations that deploy CAASM reduce dependencies on homegrown systems and manual collection processes, and remediate gaps either manually or via automated workflows. Organizations can visualize security tool coverage, support attack surface management (ASM) processes, and correct systems of record that may have stale or missing data." The drivers of CAASM adoption, according to Gartner, include: "Full visibility into all information technology (IT), Internet of Things (IoT) and operational technology (OT) assets under an organization's control, which improves understanding of the attack surface area and existing security control gaps or serves as part of a wider ASM process. Quicker audit compliance reporting through more accurate, current and comprehensive asset and security control reports. Consolidation of existing products that collect asset and exposure information into a single normalized view, which reduces the need for manual processes or dependencies on homegrown applications. Access to consolidated asset views for multiple individuals and teams across an organization, such as enterprise architects, security operations teams and IT administrators, who can benefit from viewing and querying consolidated asset inventories with a view to achieving business objectives." The recent Gartner report on Top Trends in Cybersecurity 2022 cited "Attack Surface Expansion" as one of the year's top security trends resulting from the expanding digital footprint of modern organizations. According to the report, "A dramatic increase in attack surface is emerging from changes in the use of digital systems, such as new hybrid work, accelerated use of public cloud, more tightly interconnected supply chains, expansion of public-facing digital assets and increased use of operational technology." In our opinion, security leaders who reinvent the cybersecurity function and technology architecture can better position their organizations to maintain and grow value in an increasingly agile, distributed, and decentralized environment. JupiterOne was named a Sample Vendor for CAASM in the latest release of the Gartner Hype Cycle for Security Operations, 2022. The report is available for complimentary download from JupiterOne. Additionally, Gartner recognized JupiterOne as a Representative Provider for CAASM in the Innovation Insights for Attack Surface Management and as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Workload and Network Security, 2022 research reports. "JupiterOne is honored to receive yet another recognition from Gartner. Right now, the world is full of uncertainty, making it challenging to conduct business. More than ever, businesses must prioritize effective security measures. Security leaders can get invaluable insights by tracking their assets and making efficient use of their resources. Overall, organizations can make better data-driven business decisions while keeping security risks in mind." Erkang Zheng, Founder and CEO at JupiterOne About JupiterOne JupiterOne is a cyber asset attack surface management (CAASM) platform company providing visibility and security into your entire cyber asset universe. Using graphs and relationships, JupiterOne provides a contextual knowledge base for an organization's cyber asset operations.
