AT&T has begun offering a premises-based Cisco ASA option for its Managed Firewall portfolio. The service, which is aimed at small and medium-sized businesses, combines AT&T's firewall software solutions with scalable, end-to-end management, monitoring and maintenance. The customer can locate services such as those for Web access and electronic mail in the protected network and can control access to those servers.

The service is available through the AT&T BusinessDirect Web portal, which provides a single point to manage the customer's perimeter. The fully managed firewall service makes enforcement of customer's security policy an inherent part of the network across Intranet-, Extranet-, and Internet-based communications. The AT&T Premises -- Based Cisco ASA Firewall Option is available bundled with AT&T's Managed Internet Service or as a stand alone service to use on any internet service provider's connection.
