Due to the increased volume of Internet related computer threats, companies are in greater need of detection tools and solutions that will help them protect against mal-ware penetration and business interruptions. As a result, many companies rely on off-the-shelf intrusion detection software solutions to protect their private networks from internet threats. According to the 2006 CSI/FBI Computer Crime and Security Survey, firewalls, anti-virus software, and anti-spyware software solutions were the most popular purchased amongst survey respondents. However, such solutions can be generic and offer features rarely used by the customer. Also, in addition to paying for rarely used features, these solutions can drive increased cost through maintenance and support needs. This is particularly true for growing companies.
As your business grows, you should consider a more robust and up-to-date solution for your VPN to help avoid potential business interruptions from malicious attacks while avoiding unnecessary increased costs.
Private Intranet Protect, an option of AT&T Internet Protect®, is a fully managed internet security service designed to analyze traffic on your VPN to detect intrusions, cyber attacks, and other potentially threatening identified anomalies. Not only does Private Intranet Protect offer you alerting and notification of outside threats, it also identifies and analyzes threats within your AT&T Enhanced Virtual Network or AT&T Virtual Private Network using Managed Router Services.
By analyzing your VPN traffic, this service detects the following threats below before they have a chance to damage your network:
- Zero day events (attacks that exploit software vulnerabilities that are too new to be well-publicized)
- Dark address space activity
- Denial of service attacks
- Protocol misuse
- Global security threats
- Phishing attacks
Sold as an alternative to My Internet Protect, Private Intranet Protect analyzes your complete private network traffic. In combination with AT&T Internet Protect®, this service is designed to monitor and analyze traffic both within your network and on AT&T’s backbone.
