DDoS attacks, like most other security threats, have expanded in scope and impact. While the more traditional flood-based attacks are still used to deny access, the attack method has shifted from TCP- and UDP-based flooding to HTTP-based attacks that exploit new vulnerabilities. In the corporate environment, these HTTP attacks threaten availability by targeting smaller “pipes” and going after the application-layer as opposed to flooding the upstream network pipe. DDoS attacks have also become part of larger attack-based campaigns to deflect the attention of security and network experts so that something far more sinister can occur.

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.
