AT&T Cybersecurity has launched a dedicated managed Extended Detection and Response (XDR) offering which is available immediately.
The AT&T Managed XDR solution features a cloud-based security platform with security threat analytics, machine learning, and third-party connectors to protect endpoint, network, and cloud assets with automated and orchestrated malware prevention, threat detection, and response.
At a time where there are increasing complexities, attack surfaces are growing. At the same time, cybercriminals are turning to highly evasive and more lucrative strategies to exploit and profit from network vulnerabilities.
Rupesh Chokshi, VP, AT&T Cybersecurity
“Given the complexities customers are facing with digital transformation and protecting against increasing cyber threats, the approach to monitoring and addressing threats needs to evolve. Our managed XDR solution extends automated and orchestrated managed detection and response with powerful new security analytics and machine learning capabilities, enabling greater efficiency in security operations and helping organisations to propel digital transformation and drive revenue growth.”
AT&T Managed XDR extends threat detection and response from the endpoint to the network to the cloud, providing broad visibility. The technology leverages the AT&T Unified Security Management (USM™) platform which includes AT&T Alien Labs™ threat intelligence and deep integrations to many third-party products via AT&T AlienApps, and combines AT&T Managed Endpoint Security with SentinelOne and AT&T Managed Threat Detection & Response. Through this combination, AT&T Security Operations Center (SOC) analysts provide 24×7 threat monitoring and management of separate threat detection stacks for greater network visibility and faster endpoint threat detection.
Christina Richmond, Program VP, IDC Security Services
“XDR provides a critical path for efficient threat detection and response, but one of the challenges in rolling out an XDR solution can be the complexity of deployment and fine-tuning of the platform — especially with the legacy tech an organisation may have in place. XDR solutions that provide both advanced capabilities and services to support customers 24/7 will be of greater value to organisations.”
