AT&T Dynamic Defense

AT&T Dynamic Defense, an in-line, on-demand network security service, now is available in select markets from the service provider.

Described as AT&T’s first and only network security product with built-in security controls, AT&T Dynamic Defense does not require extra equipment and becomes operational within minutes, according to the company.

It now is available in markets including Washington, D.C.; Dallas and Houston, Texas; Atlanta; Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Chicago; New York City; Cleveland, Ohio; and Los Angeles and San Francisco. A broader rollout is expected later this year, the carrier said.

The service is embedded with the carrier’s network and quickly identifies threats, filters traffic and executes security controls, AT&T described. The goal is to block threats in real time before they ever reach the customers.

There are three service options:

  • The standard option is priced at $20 per month, though it now is offered at no cost for the life of the customer’s AT&T Dedicated Internet Service.
  • The advanced option is $175 per month. It includes the first two months at no charge, if service starts before the end of the year.
  • The premium option is $275 per month.

“Cybersecurity is a core strength at AT&T, and we’re setting a new standard of connectivity, with security that starts at the network level,” Rick Welday, the head of AT&T Business, said in a press release. “Our customers deserve our best effort when it comes to protecting their businesses and this innovative product offers a robust shield against cyber threats, enabling them to do more than they ever could before.” 

AT&T signaled its intention to be part of a new cybersecurity business last November. The company, which received an investment from WillJam Ventures LLC, said it planned to create a standalone managed cybersecurity services business.
