New AT&T Cybersecurity Solution to Help U.S. Federal, State and Local Government Agencies Detect and Respond Faster to Digital Risks
AT&T Threat Detection and Response for Government meets key security requirements while providing critical network visibility to help protect data
DALLAS, May 19, 2021
What’s the news? AT&T* has launched a cost-effective unified cybersecurity solution designed to meet the security needs of federal, state and local government agencies. The new offer, AT&T Threat Detection and Response for Government, is built on the AT&T Unified Security Management (USM) platform which combines threat detection, incident response, and compliance management.
Why is this important?
Public sector agencies need help reducing cybersecurity risks. Federal, state and local agencies manage high volumes of sensitive data and face persistent nation-state threats while supporting critical infrastructure. AT&T Threat Detection and Response for Government is purpose-built in the AWS GovCloud (U.S.) and meets the U.S. Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) requirements for cloud service providers operating at the Moderate Impact Level. These safeguards can help agencies achieve compliance and allow IT leaders more time to focus their efforts on other projects critical to mission delivery.
What makes this new cybersecurity solution different?
AT&T Threat Detection and Response for Government is fast to deploy and easy to use. It uses the rich automation and orchestration capabilities of the AT&T USM platform and is highly effective at detecting and responding to threats.
The solution can be integrated with other IT and security tools and allows a single pane of glass view for visibility across the IT environment, both on-premises and in the cloud (including Microsoft Azure Government, AWS GovCloud U.S., and Google Cloud Platform™ environments). It is fueled with continuous threat intelligence to help protect against advanced threats including malware and ransomware.
AT&T Cybersecurity understands the unique challenges facing the U.S. public sector. To help agencies optimize their implementation of AT&T Threat Detection and Response for Government, AT&T Cybersecurity Consulting offers professional services, including security expertise as needed.
