… the noble opportunity to really make a difference in the world. Security is not a silver bullet, you cannot solve it; just like crime, you can only work (to) manage and minimize it. Today’s businesses need a trusted provider on this journey and AT&T serves as a trusted adviser to so many businesses across the globe already.
We have an incredible opportunity to create an end-to-end security platform and services encompassing both our services and technology, as well as the best from the ecosystem of our strategic alliances. As we bring this all together, it will radically simplify and automate how customers tackle this complex security need in both the enterprise and midmarket.
CP: Does AlienVault now have more of a competitive edge with AT&T? How?
BM: Yes. With this acquisition, AT&T is competitively positioned in [the] marketplace to provide threat detection and incident-response services to customers of all sizes, at scale. AT&T and AlienVault will continue to provide services in the security information and event management (SIEM) and MSSP product categories.
