NEW DELHI, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AT&T* today announced that it is now offering AT&T Managed Security Services to multinational corporations in India. These managed solutions help customers assess vulnerabilities, protect infrastructure, detect attacks and respond to suspicious activities and events.

AT&T helps businesses design, deploy, manage and evolve networks, systems and applications that are reliable and contain security features designed to help protect against cyber attacks and business interruptions.

Specifically, companies in India will now have access to several of AT&T's leading managed security solutions:

-- Premises-Based Firewall: A premises-based firewall service provides firewall protection at the perimeter of the customer's premises, and enforcement of location specific security policies. -- Network-Based Firewall: A network-based security service that protects customers' WANs by providing secure inbound and outbound internet access directly into the customer's WAN providing a consistent enforcement of security policies to all customer locations. -- AT&T Internet Protect(R): A security analysis and notification service that offers advanced information regarding potential near real-time attacks (e.g., viruses, worms and distributed denial of service or DDoS attacks) that are designed to be detected in the early formation stages. -- AT&T Private Intranet Protect: An alerting and notification tool designed to analyze traffic on the user's Virtual Private Network (VPN) and help detect intrusions, cyber-attacks and other potentially threatening identified anomalies. -- My Internet Protect:A security knowledge mining, analysis and notification service for identified threats that enter a customer's network.

The network-based approach enables AT&T to efficiently and proactively manage network security issues, redundancy, load balancing and recovery.
