Email Security
Managing the thousands of email messages that pass through a typical company’s server every day is an enormous task. Dedicating in-house IT resources to ensure security, availability, and compliance for vast amounts of email traffic is one approach — but doing so diverts these valuable resources from strategic work that advances business goals. Thankfully, there is a better way. With AT&T Secure E-Mail Gateway, you can:

  • Help protect your company against spam, viruses, worms, phishing scams, and other malware threats before they ever reach your network.
  • Depend on 60-day rolling email storage for web-based email access during planned and unplanned server outages.
  • Monitor and act on all outbound email containing content that violates your data loss prevention policies.
  • Easily utilize email encryption when needed without disruption to end-user workflow.
  • Economically and efficiently archive every email message to meet document retention requirements.

As more organizations plan and deploy virtualization solutions, the additional complexity in design and management of the various components can lead to an increase in vulnerabilities and possible threats. This is the case when introducing any new technology. It is important to have a strong understanding of how virtualization will impact your business environment and all of the applications you are running, as well as how virtualization may change your level of risk. There are certainly ways to leverage virtualization benefits without increasing risk, but it is important to recognize the potential security challenges and safeguard against them. AT&T Consulting Security Practice offers an array of security consulting services, including Security Strategy Roadmap, Secure Network Architecture Reviews, Threat and Vulnerability Management, and Application Security Services, that can help clients in the process of moving toward a virtualized environment understand their security posture, and address and mitigate risks to their infrastructure.
