AT&T announced the formation of AT&T cybersecurity as a standalone cybersecurity division which brings together AlienVault which the company acquired in 2018 and AT&T's two other units, AT&T Cybersecurity Consulting and AT&T Managed Security Services divisions.

The Operator announced that AlienVault CEO Barmak Meftah will lead the new division. 

In a blog post, Meftah said that, "With the acquisition of AlienVault, AT&T Cybersecurity will continue to deliver on our joint vision to address these “seams” and uniquely bring together people, process, and technology through a “software defined” unified security management platform. A platform that integrates, automates and orchestrates a wide spectrum of best-of-breed point security products."

He added that, "By abstracting much of the management of individual security products, we are automating deployment and ongoing operations, and operating them as a single unified solution - much in the same way AlienVault had done with the critical capabilities required for threat detection and response.  This platform will use the technical capabilities and reach of AT&T’s Edge-to-Edge intelligence in order to deliver solutions as on-demand digital services optimized to help protect customers through their own digital transformation journey"
