09 April 2014 | Sophie Donoghue


AT&T has expanded its portfolio with the launch of a new cloud security solution, AT&T Cloud Web Security.

The solution – which was developed in partnership with security specialists Blue Coat – will offer cloud-based, real-time managed security and is designed to help organisations deploy secure and cost-effective cloud service and web applications.

Based on Blue Coat's security policy and enforcement technology, the solution provides protection against viruses, malware and compromised web sites.

“The launch of this new on-demand cloud security solution is an important milestone in our commitment to deliver improved security, analytics, and threat visibility to our customers,” said Andy Daudelin, VP of security solutions at AT&T Business Solutions.

Last month, AT&T’s acquisition of US provider Leap Wireless was approved by US telecoms regulator the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
