AT&T provides managed web filtering for ICI.

AT&T : 17 December, 2007  (Application Story)
ICI benefits from managed security services from AT&T to improve web content filtering and malware screening.
AT&T has announced that ICI, one of the world's major coatings, adhesives, starch and synthetic polymers businesses, has selected AT&T to provide an enhanced level of managed security services across its global network. ICI is in the process of implementing AT&T's managed Web-filtering service as part of a company wide program designed to increase levels of security across the organization.

In addition to protecting users from accidentally visiting inappropriate Internet Web sites, AT&T's Web Security service will protect against any malware that users may catch from legitimate sites that have become corrupted. The service includes Web-filtering, virus-scanning and spyware-screening.

Paul Simmonds, global information security director at ICI, said: "ICI is taking a proactive approach to increase levels of network security across the organization globally. Once this initial phase of deployment is complete, we will be looking to extend the protection to laptop users working directly on the Internet."

AT&T has provided Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)-based network services to ICI since 2003 and provides the company with an Internet-based Virtual Private Network (VPN) that connects 324 locations around the world. The agreement to provide enhanced managed security services is an extension of the relationship.

According to previously published research conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) for AT&T, network security is regarded by executives as the single most important attribute of their network, with the majority of executives believing that converged networks provide a better defense against IT security breaches. The findings are published in a white paper entitled "Network Security: Protecting Productivity" and can be downloaded from the AT&T Web site at the corporate AT&T web site.
