AT&T has expanded its AT&T SD-WAN solutions with a new service offering based on Cisco Secure SD-WAN technology which natively integrates security capabilities to provide threat protection.
The SD-WAN offering is powered by Cisco’s ISR and ASR routers and Enterprise Network Compute System (ENCS) and managed through a single cloud-based dashboard. Integrated security features include an application-aware enterprise firewall, intrusion prevention, URL filtering and advanced malware protection.
Mo Katibeh, Executive Vice President, Chief Product & Platform Officer, AT&T Business said, “AT&T SD-WAN with Cisco combines connectivity, SD-WAN and security, which allows businesses to expand and scale without worrying about the security of their branch locations.”
“As customers move their workloads to multiple clouds, they require fast, highly secure access to applications hosted anywhere, whether applications are hosted in the datacenter, public cloud or a private SaaS platform,” said Ravi Chandrasekaran, Senior Vice President, Intent-Based Networking Group, Cisco.
“The new AT&T managed service based on Cisco Secure SD-WAN addresses this by providing businesses with the application optimization, integrated security and consistent intent-based networking policies for their hybrid, multi-cloud environments,” added Chandrasekaran.
AT&T SD-WAN with Cisco provides the full range of SD-WAN functionality, including intelligent dynamic routing, optimized cloud connectivity and visibility into applications and performance. This level of control allows for optimal application performance, flexible deployment options and improved total cost of ownership.
