AT&T has launched an integrated, managed cybersecurity solution to help U.S. federal agencies modernize and protect their IT infrastructure in compliance with Trusted Internet Connection 3.0 cybersecurity guidance.
AT&T Government Trusted Internet Connection brings together software-defined wide area networking technology, security capabilities and fiber connectivity in a 24/7 managed solution through a single provider.
“The shift to telework and increased cyber threats have created urgency for federal agencies to enhance the security of their IT infrastructure,” said Brandon Pearce, assistant vice president of product marketing management at AT&T.
“AT&T Government Trusted Internet helps federal employees to efficiently connect to remote agency networks and cloud environments in a highly secure manner while continually managing risks,” he added.
The comprehensive, scalable solution integrates with the AT&T Managed Trusted Internet Protocol Service, extending highly secure remote access to federal agency workers and branch offices. It meets federal agency requirements for highly secure remote connectivity supporting remote users and branch offices.
The solution also optimizes network performance while allowing government agency users to connect directly to the internet to access cloud-based applications in a highly secure manner. It provides centralized network visibility across users, devices and locations to monitor users.
“Federal agencies want to stay ahead of evolving cyber threats and comply with TIC 3.0 and the Executive Order, but they also want as little friction as possible,” said Chris Kissel, research director for Tier 2 SOC Analytics at IDC. “What I see as compelling about AT&T Government Trusted Internet Connection is it considers all of the possible use cases including remote workers and the practical implementation of Zero Trust.”
