As a security-first organization, AT&T Cybersecurity makes the protection of your data and privacy our top priority. We’ve implemented several security measures to protect your data, both in the architecture of USM Anywhere and by aligning our internal security controls and processes with industry-proven security best practices.
Audited and Secure Infrastructure and Processes
At AT&T Cybersecurity, we use USM Anywhere to demonstrate and maintain our own continuous compliance, working with third-party auditors to regularly test our systems, controls, and processes.

Designed to Keep Your Monitoring Data Secure
USM Anywhere implements multiple mechanisms to assure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your security monitoring data, both from external and insider threats, and across your cloud, on-premises , and hybrid environments.
Dedicated, Single-Tenant Data Store
Unlike other SaaS-delivered services that use a multi-tenant architecture, AT&T Cybersecurity uses a single-tenant, dedicated data store architecture to securely store your security monitoring data. This assures that your data is completely isolated from other customers’ data, compared to multi-tenancy misconfigurations or failures that can result in data leakage and breakage, and that can affect multiple customer accounts.
Your Security Data Secured in Transit
Every USM Anywhere Sensor uses the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol to create a secure connection with the USM Anywhere central service. Both your USM Anywhere Service and each of your USM Anywhere Sensors has a unique digital certificate, which are used to securely authenticate one another. Once authenticated, a unique encryption key is created, which then encrypts all security monitoring data sent from the USM Anywhere Sensor to your USM Anywhere service, maintaining its confidentiality and its integrity.
Maintaining the Confidentiality of Your Security Data at Rest
To assure the confidentiality of your security monitoring data at rest, USM Anywhere encrypts both your hot (online) and cold (long-term) storage data using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with a 256-bit encryption key, which is unique to your USM Anywhere service.
Maintaining Data Integrity in Cold Storage
Any event and log collected by USM Anywhere is stored within compliant-ready and secure “cold storage.” By default, USM Anywhere stores all data associated with a customer’s subdomain in cold storage for the life of the active USM Anywhere subscription.
USM Anywhere uses a “write once, read many” (WORM) approach to log storage to prevent log data from being modified or otherwise tampered with. You can download your raw logs at any time by initiating a request from within USM Anywhere. If you ever decide not to renew your contract, your unique encryption key and data are securely destroyed 90 days after your contract expires.
Operated by Trusted Personnel
We understand that your security monitoring data is as sensitive as your intellectual property and customer data. Only a very limited number of AT&T Cybersecurity employees have access to your USM Anywhere service, and we use the principle of least privilege in determining that access. Prior to being granted access these individuals must pass a background check, and they are subject to regular training and testing to ensure their familiarity and adherence to our processes and tools.
