AT&T Web Security: Defend Your Network Against Internet Threats
Businesses rely on the Internet every day for communicating, conducting research and monitoring trends and events that might impact your business. As Internet use increases, so does the risk that malware and viruses could get into your network via the web. These threats can cripple your company, compromising data, disabling computers and crashing your network.
Web Security Service from AT&T helps safeguard against spyware, viruses and other threats that can enter your company via the Internet by:
- Scanning inbound and outbound traffic to help stop malware before it enters your network, and to help keep critical information from being leaked
- Blocking certain web sites, such as those with adult content or sites that aren't needed for business purposes
- Helping guard against threats that could enter your network through under-protected remote devices, including laptops
Stop malware before it enters your network
AT&T Web Security Service is designed to block web-borne malware and to enforce web access policies.
Viruses, worms and spyware can bring business to a halt. Web malware scanning helps detect and stop malicious traffic before it enters your network. It detects known malware and also identifies new or possible threats.
Proactive detection employs reputation and behavior analyses and vast amounts of daily web data. AT&T Web Security Service has signature-based detection, which utilizes:
- Multiple industry-leading anti-malware engines
- Hourly and emergency signature updates
- Two-hour signature response times
- The largest global malware research laboratories and collection networks
Control Internet Access with Web Filtering
You can't control what's on the Internet, but you can control the content that comes into your company. Web filtering lets you create, enforce and monitor online usage policies that let your employees have full access to the sites they need for business while blocking other sites that could pass on viruses and other malware. You may also restrict access to web pages like social networking or gaming sites so employees stay focused on your business requirements.
Considerations for Web Services Security
Internet access can help you work better and gain a competitive edge - but only if it is set up and used appropriately. Here are some issues to consider when evaluating web security services.
Are you allocating your resources properly?
Network bandwidth, like any other resource, need to be used effectively. With Web Security Service from AT&T, you can receive comprehensive activity reporting - including forensic auditing by user, department and organization - to help ensure your bandwidth is being used productively. You can create access policies based on URL categories, content types and other criteria to help keep employees concentrated on work.
Is your workforce becoming more mobile?
By making it easier for your staff to work out of the office, you may also be making it easier for threats to enter your network. Not all remote devices have the same level of security as computers and other tools used in the office.
Web Security service from AT&T extends scanning and web filtering services to off-site employees, helping to keep threats from entering your network through remote devices.
