A new partnership between Cisco and AT&T Cybersecurity sees Cisco’s secure access service edge (SASE) platform now available as a managed service from AT&T. AT&T SASE with Cisco is a converged network and security management solution that connects and protects enterprises with software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) technology and security capabilities. The comprehensive solution includes expert policy design and configuration, and 24/7 network management. With AT&T SASE with Cisco, organisations can accelerate adoption of cloud-based applications through optimised, highly secure, and reliable digital experiences.
AT&T SASE with Cisco provides flexibility to optimise the network on a site-by-site basis, and dynamically routes traffic across multiple wide area network connections. These capabilities combined with unified security controls help organisations reduce the time and cost to provision, manage and scale new connections to meet business demands.
Centralised visibility allows organisations to control access for any device, connecting from any network. This capability is critical in industries such as healthcare for authenticating user access to patient data. The unique AT&T SASE with Cisco solution provides precise, identity-based permissions to validate the health of devices for every session.
AT&T SASE with Cisco provides highly secure, direct connections to the web and SaaS applications for the hybrid workforce. Performance optimisation at the edge gives remote users a fast, reliable path to the cloud for better computing experiences.
AT&T Cybersecurity Consulting offers professional services to help customers navigate through their SASE journey.
AT&T SASE with Cisco is immediately available through AT&T Business.
John Grady, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group
“While SASE continues to generate significant interest in the market, the nature of the initiative leaves many users wondering where to begin and which vendors to engage with. Choosing proven network and security technologies is a good start, but working with managed service providers, especially those offering strategy, design, and implementation services, can help organisations accelerate their adoption of SASE and ultimately reduce time to value.”
Rupesh Chokshi, VP, AT&T Cybersecurity
“As a leading MSSP and trusted advisor, it’s important to provide customers with a choice of managed SASE solutions to meet their unique needs. Through our collaboration with Cisco, we’re offering an integrated, modern solution that addresses the connectivity and security demands of a multi-cloud, network environment while enabling innovation.”
Shailaja Shankar, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Cisco Security Business Group
“The shift to remote work has accelerated the need for SASE solutions, so that users and devices are secure anywhere they work. The AT&T SASE with Cisco offer will provide customers with an innovative way to gain seamless, secure access to any application, from any location in a way that is straightforward to procure, easy to set up, and simple to use and manage through a single cloud dashboard.”
