Key Capabilities / Features

• AT&T Dynamic Defense Shield is the network’s first line of defense against threats and blocks up to 30,000 malicious IP addresses before they hit. This feature, powered by AT&T CSO threat intelligence, adapts to the evolving risk landscape to continuously shield against zero-day attacks, botnets, and other threats.

• AT&T Enhanced Dynamic Defense Shield blocks up to 150,000 malicious IP addresses before they hit the customer’s network. Customers can add IPs to their blocklist and have visibility to all sites blocked by AT&T.

• NextGen firewall is a deep inspection firewall with granular security controls to mitigate security risks. Feature provides details relating to the configuration of IP blocking, web filtering, stateful firewall, and Geo-IP blocking. Administrators can configure common internet protocols and ports including but not limited to HTTP, HTTPS, DNS, FTP, and SSH.

• Geo IP Filtering feature is a powerful tool designed to enhance the security and protection of customer’s network infrastructure. It’s a vital layer in network defense that enables organizations to control access and limit malicious exposure by restricting or allowing traffic originating from specific geographical locations.

• Web filtering feature enables users to classify websites into predefined categories such as Social Networking, Gambling, Adult Content, etc. By categorizing websites, organizations can selectively allow or block access to specific categories based on their policies, plus can utilize allow and block lists for specific URL exceptions.

• Reporting provides critical information about cybersecurity threats, risks within the digital ecosystem, potential and existing gaps in security controls, and the overall performance of the security programs. Log files can be used to monitor the activity within the IT infrastructure, identify policy violations, pinpoint fraudulent and anomalous activity, and highlight security incidents.
