AT&T and IBM Team Up on Mobile Cloud Security

AT&T and IBM announced a partnership focused on delivering a scalable mobile cloud solution to help protect corporate data and apps. 

The reference architecture includes:
  • IBM MobileFirst Protect: helps organizations manage and control mobile devices, apps and documents.
  • AT&T NetBond: provides a highly secure, scalable network connection to IBM's Cloud infrastructure services, SoftLayer.
  • IBM Cloud: the SoftLayer infrastructure secures public and private clouds for applications and data storage.
  • AT&T Work Platform: enables separate billing of business and personal charges for voice, messaging and data use on an employee's personal handset.
"Balancing employees' need for convenience with security has become a challenge for CISOs and CIOs across the world," said Caleb Barlow, vice president, IBM Security. "To help protect organizations, employees and data, IBM Security and AT&T are delivering a tested and easy to deploy set of complementary tools. We're giving enterprise mobile device users stable, private access to data and apps in the cloud."

"More employees are using mobile devices to be more productive. At the same time, data and apps are moving to the cloud. The changes are exciting, but security needs to be top-of-mind," said Steve McGaw, chief marketing officer, AT&T Business Solutions. "Trusted collaborators like IBM are helping us better address changing business models. Together we're giving options to deliver highly secure mobile access to cloud apps and data."
