DALLAS, Feb. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T1 is helping businesses better secure and manage connected devices on their networks.
The cloud-based AT&T Control Center, powered by Cisco Jasper, helps businesses launch, manage and monetize IoT services. It will now have greater security by adding AT&T NetBond connectivity.
The solution will give businesses highly secure connectivity to leading cloud service providers and to their own data centers. The connection travels through the AT&T Virtual Private Network (VPN), isolated from public internet risks. It also saves costs through work resources on demand, and consistent and predictable performance.
"The industry is growing rapidly with analysts forecasting there will be tens of billions of connected devices by 2020. This acceleration will introduce new risks for businesses," said Chris Penrose, President, Internet of Things Solutions, AT&T. "By integrating AT&T Control Center and AT&T NetBond, we can give businesses a robust and highly secure solution to address those risks."
Businesses get a single IoT solution that helps:
- Protect them from security breaches.
- Gain strategic insight. View data usage, costs to performance and provisioning status.
- Control costs. Access automated overage controls, notifications and rules.
- Troubleshoot instantly. Run detailed diagnostics on any device, online and in near real-time.
- Manage operations more efficiently. Control devices directly from their own apps.
AT&T Control Center is the latest in a list of leading cloud solutions to join the AT&T NetBond ecosystem. NetBond users can access as many as 20 leading cloud services and the NetBond ecosystem includes more than 17 providers of cloud, application, infrastructure, and integration services.
"AT&T NetBond isn't just about connecting customers to their clouds. It offers simple, scalable, and highly secure software-defined connections for all businesses," said Mo Katibeh, Senior Vice President, AT&T Advanced Solutions. "Bringing our IoT solutions into AT&T NetBond keeps businesses' critical IoT devices, workloads and information off of the public internet and on a private network. That brings inherent security and latency benefits at an incredibly affordable price."
