The famous epic poem Odyssey tells us the story of the great Trojan War, when the trojan warriors repelled wave after the wave of Greek soldiers from their city walls until the Greek army retreated. However, the Greeks left behind a giant wooden horse, which the Trojans, mistaking for a tribute, carried it inside their gates. When night came, the Greek infiltrators hidden within the wooden horse snuck out in the cover of darkness and threw open the gates of Troy. The rest, as we all know, is history!

That one careless mistake by the Trojans led to the downfall of the great city. Years later, an exact parallel scenario can be observed in the cybersecurity landscape. Cyberthreats are like the Trojan horses of the digital world and can pose a serious threat to unsuspecting users. To help enterprises keep a vigilant eye on such unexpected risks, AT&T Cybersecurity offers some of the best cybersecurity solutions in the marketplace.

Born from the consolidation of AlienVault, AT&T Cybersecurity Consulting, and AT&T Managed Security Services, AT&T Cybersecurity went on to become one of the most popular go-to solution providers in the industry. Continuing on this path, the company is addressing the shortcomings in cybersecurity space and bringing together people, processes, and technology through its unified security management platform. By reducing the complexity and cost of fighting cybercrime, AT&T Cybersecurity has secured its position as a trusted advisor for enterprises on their journey towards cybersecurity resiliency.

As digitalisation continues to revolutionise business processes across various industries, cybercriminals are adapting their tactics and strategies to harvest data and launch automated attacks at scale. Today, the growing cybercrime sophistication and cybersecurity stagnation is tipping the levels in the favour of cybercriminals. As a result, enterprises are failing to counter data breaches and malicious attacks in their networks.
In fact, 88 percent of the respondents reported at least one kind of cybersecurity breach as per the AT&T Cybersecurity Insights. According to the company, the root causes of such attacks are many–dispersed networks, data explosion, disparate systems, and complex security operations.

AT&T Cybersecurity advocates a coordinated and collaborative approach to fight cybercrime. The company is becoming the bastion of countering cyberthreats by orchestrating the best-of-breed processes, technology, and people. By consolidating the management of individual security products, AT&T Cybersecurity is automating deployment and ongoing operations through its unified solution. The platform is powered by the technical capabilities and reach of its edge-to-edge intelligence. It delivers on-demand digital services optimised to help protect customers through their digital transformation journey.

To equip enterprises with a more robust method of threat detection, real-time reporting, and long-term analytics, AT&T Cybersecurity offers robust, full-scale security information and event management (SIEM) solutions. The single-purpose SIEM software and log management tools are designed to safeguard organisations of all sizes, granting them complete visibility and control over what is happening in their network in real-time and helping their IT teams make proactive decisions in their fight against security threats.

The capabilities of AT&T Cybersecurity are perfectly captured by one of the many customer success stories. In this case study, an administrative and consulting services company for healthcare recognised the threat of malicious attacks on corporate networks and decided to shore up its defences as per the latest standards. For this, it chose to layer its protection with SIEM, enabling near-real-time alerts and network event logs correlation. However, the company lacked the IT staff to comb through the logs and security alerts. What it needed was robust threat intelligence, collaborative defence, and adequate security to protect its network. This is when they turned to AT&T Cybersecurity. The newly installed AT&T Managed Threat Detection & Response gave the client coordinated threat detection, incident response, and threat management capabilities. The new solution significantly increased the network security for a fraction of the cost it would have for an IT team to provide.

With Barmak Meftah at the helm as the president, AT&T Cybersecurity is uncompromisingly versatile in upgrading its technologies. The vast defensive capabilities of its cybersecurity solutions make the company a go-to solution provider for their most challenging enterprise security issues. Driven by a team of experts, AT&T Cybersecurity is going beyond the established standards in countering cybercrime.
