To deal with cyber attacks, AT&T is investing in a new mobile security platform to help customers better protect their devices against security threats. AT&T has executed an agreement with Juniper Networks to deliver this security capability and additional services based on the platform in the future.
AT&T’s strategy is to provide a comprehensive security solution that will integrate wireline and wireless security policies for consumer, enterprise and government customers. The first phase of the platform – the AT&T Mobile Security application – is expected to be available later this year and is based on the Juniper Networks Junos Pulse solution.
The AT&T Mobile Security application will help businesses maintain compliance with government regulations; enforce security policies; manage personal or enterprise-owned devices; and enable anti-virus, anti-malware, and application monitoring and control. For consumers, AT&T’s security application will protect mobile devices with anti-virus, anti-malware, and application monitoring and control.
"Mobile security is the ‘next frontier’ for our continued effort to mitigate cyber-threats and to help protect our customers’ information," said Ed Amoroso, chief security officer, AT&T.
