AT&T Cybersecurity delivers new managed SASE solution


AT&T has announced the expansion of its global managed Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) portfolio.

The new offering is part of a partnership with Cisco that will offer a converged network and security management solution that connects and protects firms with SD-WAN technology.

With the new solution, AT&T says, organisations can accelerate the adoption of cloud-based applications through optimised, highly secure, and reliable digital experiences.

Rupesh Chokshi, VP of AT&T Cybersecurity said: “As a leading MSSP and trusted advisor, it’s important to provide customers with a choice of managed SASE solutions to meet their unique needs.

“Through our collaboration with Cisco, we’re offering an integrated, modern solution that addresses the connectivity and security demands of a multi-cloud, network environment while enabling innovation.”

The company adds that with these capabilities and security controls, the time and cost of projects will be reduced while also allowing new connections to meet business demands.

The platform allows for centralised visibility which allows organisations to control access for any device connecting from any network. This capability will allow companies to authenticate user access to data and the AT&T SASE with Cisco solution will provide precise, identity-based permissions to validate the health of devices for every session.

Shailaja Shankar, senior vice president and general manager at Cisco Security Business Group added: “The shift to remote work has accelerated the need for SASE solutions so that users and devices are secure anywhere they work.

“The AT&T SASE with Cisco offer will provide customers with an innovative way to gain seamless, secure access to any application, from any location in a way that is straightforward to procure, easy to set up, and simple to use and manage through a single cloud dashboard.”

The solution is available immediately through AT&T Business.
