AT&T this week unveiled a new security suite, AT&T Threat Intellect to enable businesses to detect, analyze and address security threats faster and more efficiently. The suite which centers behind AT&T’s machine learning-based threat intelligence system provides visibility into the data patterns and threat activity across any network, helping businesses customize their security to meet their needs.
Developed under its Domain 2.0 initiative and Software Defined Network(SDN) strategy, the platform can be used to automate the deployment of security protections. It claims that security automation will improve the speed at which Operators can deploy security protections by over 95%, greatly improving threat detection and resolution.

The Operator claims that the new platform which uses big data analysis based on Hadoop architecture allows any company to perform 5 billion vulnerability scans and 200,000 malware events at any one time. AT&T said that the new security technology can also help detect and react to new zero-day attacks and threats.
