AT&T announced an expanded set of managed security offerings and new capabilities, including a mobile security service to be launched later this year.

The new security offering combines network and device-level security controls with highly secure virtual private networking, application security and a full suite of mobile device management capabilities. The service is designed to provide organizations with comprehensive security for their mobile ecosystems, even if they are not AT&T wireless customers.

In addition, AT&T recently added advanced persistent threat security assessments to its portfolio of consulting services to help organizations evaluate their ability to detect, resist and respond to targeted cyber security threats.

The company has also doubled its network capacity to manage the growing volume of distributed denial of service attacks and recently added a DDoS protection option for customers deploying critical Web applications, including Content Delivery Networks.

"Security is at the very core of what we do as a company," Andy Daudelin, vice president of Security Services at AT&T Business Solutions, said in a statement. "From the security controls built right into the backbone of our network to our proprietary threat intelligence, we work to make security an enabler, not a limitation of business transformation.”
