LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) September 30, 2021
CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today announced that AT&T Cybersecurity has been named the winner of the “Secure Access Service Edge Solution of the Year” award for its “AT&T SASE with Fortinet” managed service in the fifth annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program conducted.
Earlier this year, AT&T expanded its portfolio of Managed Security Services through its alliance with Fortinet, serving as the industry’s first global managed SASE solution at scale that unifies software-defined-wide-area network (SD-WAN) with essential network security functions of the SASE framework and 24x7 management.
AT&T SASE with Fortinet integrates with AT&T Alien Labs™ Threat Intelligence platform, enabling and unlocking multiple response actions, which provide SOC analysts visibility into network security, allowing them to respond to alarms effectively and efficiently.
Bringing Fortinet's SD-WAN and SASE products and capabilities together with AT&T Cybersecurity's trusted advisors managing SOC operations provides a ‘breakthrough’ multi-layered, scalable network security solution that organizations need to fully embrace SASE. As a result, AT&T SASE with Fortinet enables the dynamic needs of today's distributed workforce to deliver security-driven networking at every edge.
“As the largest SD-WAN Managed Service Provider in North America, and one of the world’s largest Managed Security Services Providers, AT&T understands what businesses need as they modernize and transform their networks, including the importance of security being a critical component of any business initiative,” said Rupesh Chokshi, VP, AT&T Cybersecurity. “We are thrilled to be recognized by CyberSecurity Breakthrough this year. AT&T's heritage in providing integrated business solutions with managed services, and our best-in-class fiber and 5G connectivity solutions, uniquely position us to deliver on the promise of SASE.”
