AT&T’s Toggle Enhancements Give Businesses More Flexibility, Security

Improvements to AT&T Toggle, the carrier’s bring-your-own-device (BYOD) solution, are expected to give network administrators more control, employees more flexibility and organizations more security when preparing for a BYOD environment.

“Using AT&T Toggle will allow our community to use their personal devices for work without compromising security – which is of the utmost importance in the health care industry. Our staff will be more mobile and connected," said Sean Heyniger, chief executive officer, SleepMed, Inc. “As a result, they can improve workflow, and ultimately, patient experience and outcomes."

Enhancements to AT&T Toggle include an app ecosystem that gives organizations the flexibility and control of a self-managed solution by adding a layer of protection to applications on employee-owned devices; seamless transition for IT managers who can allow employees to switch between the personal and work modes on their devices without entering a PIN; an E911 “My Location" capability that can now be set up on more than one device associated with the same AT&T Toggle Voice number; and network-based security features that help protect enterprise data on employee-owned devices with VPN, providing a defense against mobile botnets and zero-day threats.

“Companies are switching to BYOD to balance the needs of the business and their employees. AT&T Toggle fulfills both," said Mike Troiano, vice president, Advanced Mobility Solutions, AT&T Business Solutions. “Businesses and organizations save on the cost of issuing company-owned devices, while employees can use the smartphone or tablet they’re more comfortable with for both work and personal matters."

AT&T Toggle is now available to business customers in more than 25 countries worldwide.
