AT&T Expands Managed Service Offerings

Security is a big part of the IT space and managed services are increasingly becoming a crucial component of the IT function for businesses large and small. So naturally when you mix security and managed services, it's pretty lucrative proposition.

Moreover, when a major telco gets involved, IT pros interested in security and managed services would do well to take notice. The telco heavyweight in question is AT&T, which recently announced it's expanding its managed service offerings.

Specifically, Web Application Firewall Service, a new AT&T network-based firewall service, provides policy-based controls and new capabilities to secure e-mail gateways.

Business continuity and network integrity, the lynchpins of managed services and security, are the specific goals of the new products that integrate telecom, telephony and IT services, according to the company.

AT&T said it is targeting "global, national, midsize and regional businesses" with the service.
