ICI Selects AT&T for Managed Security Services
LONDON -- AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) announced today 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&Ts managed Web-filtering service as part of a companywide program designed to increase levels of security across the organization.
In addition to protecting users from accidentally visiting inappropriate Internet Web sites, AT&Ts 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.
