AT&T Builds Security Center portal, Implements Arbor for DDOS

AT&T announced two separate enhancements to its cloud-based security services -- the launch of AT&T Security Center, a new Web-based security administration tool that is accessible via the AT&T BusinessDirect Portal, as well as enhancements to AT&T Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) defense protection.


The AT&T Security Center portal enables customers to perform a multitude of network management and administrative tasks:

  • Centralization of security tools for Network-Based Firewall self-servicing, Premises-Based Firewall, Intrusion Detection, AT&T Threat Management Suite of tools (AIP, DDoS, PIP, MIP), Security Event and Threat Management, End-Point Security, Web Security Services and Token Authentication.


  • New interactive security reporting for Network-Based Firewall self-servicing, Premises-Based Firewall and Managed Intrusion Detection, with additional reporting options planned to be rolled out in a phased approach.


  • Access to security resources and tools such as device policy change requests, AT&T Security Product information, AT&T CSO Security Insight microsite, AT&T Tech Channel videos, internet traffic watch (Flood), IP address lookup tool and access to the latest security advisories with tips for customers to keep current on the latest security vulnerabilities


AT&T also is announcing implementation of the next generation of DDoS mitigation hardware from Arbor Networks within its network-based security infrastructure. This new fully managed security platform includes a range of capabilities to help mitigate the latest attacks:

  • Blocking of known malicious hosts and application layer exploits; defense against Web-based threats and botnets; and protection of VoIP services and critical infrastructure.


  • 24x7 "peace time" pro-active monitoring of customer traffic with learned traffic data fed back into customers' traffic profiles, which can be leveraged to help protect against future attacks.


  • Up to 40 Gbps surgical mitigation that automatically identifies and removes only attack traffic without interrupting flow of legitimate business traffic.
