Network-based/Premises-based Managed Firewall Service

Managed Firewall Service is one of several tools deployed in a layered approach to security that will help reduce service disruptions caused by malicious access attempts.

Premises-based solutions are installed in an Agency location or AT&T hosting facility. Customers choose from four architectures with features and capabilities that suit a variety of requirements.

Network-based solutions are pre-provisioned in AT&T Network facilities; Agencies purchase bandwidth and security options. The Network-based Firewall offers a selection of features and capabilities for different Agencies using the same architecture.

Like other managed security services, AT&T Application Firewall Service is a fully managed capability that includes hardware/software provisioning, testing, installation, and 24x7 management.

The application firewall dynamically assembles a security policy to apply to each end user's transaction, based upon your web application's logic, designed to allow appropriate transactions and block inappropriate behavior. Forensic reporting is made available to you through the Managed Services Portal, enabling you to fine tune the application security policies, continually hardening your web application.
