AT&T is expanding its global, managed Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) portfolio to include a new offering in conjunction with Cisco.
The new offering is a converged network and security management solution that includes SD-WAN technology and security capabilities backed by policy design and configuration, and 24/7 network management.
“AT&T SASE with Cisco” enables the network to be optimized on a site-by-site basis. It features dynamic routing across multiple wide area network connections. Centralized visibility allows organizations to control access for any device, connecting from any network. The solution also provides identity-based permissions to validate the health of devices for every session.
“The shift to remote work has accelerated the need for SASE solutions so that users and devices are secure anywhere they work,” said Shailaja Shankar, SVP and General Manager of the Cisco Security Business Group. “The AT&T SASE with Cisco offer will provide customers with an innovative way to gain seamless, secure access to any application, from any location in a way that is straightforward to procure, easy to set up, and simple to use and manage through a single cloud dashboard.”
“As a leading MSSP and trusted advisor, it’s important to provide customers with a choice of managed SASE solutions to meet their unique needs,” said Rupesh Chokshi, VP of AT&T Cybersecurity. “Through our collaboration with Cisco, we’re offering an integrated, modern solution that addresses the connectivity and security demands of a multi-cloud, network environment while enabling innovation.”
Professional services are also available through AT&T Cybersecurity.
Partners can more easily leverage SASE to accelerate adoption of cloud-based applications to further support remote workforces or to connect branch offices.
