AT&T has announced it has won a three-year contract for networking security services from Lorillard Tobacco Co., the oldest and third largest tobacco company in the United States. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. AT&T will provide a network-based e-mail security and message management solution that enables Lorillard to ensure the integrity of electronic messaging before it enters the corporate network. The service offers a frontline defense against e-mail viruses, worms and spam that can threaten corporate assets and workforce productivity. The AT&T solution incorporates spam filtering, virus blocking, content management, e-mail policy enforcement, message archiving and disaster recovery for both inbound and outbound messages, all delivered through a global network of data centers for redundancy and load balancing to maximize bandwidth and ensure always-available electronic messaging, storage and monitoring capabilities. Additionally, the AT&T solution provides an extra level of security with its Transport Layer Security (TLS), an emerging encryption technology standard that ensures server-to-server privacy over the Internet. Through an array of online tools, Lorillard can easily manage inbound and outbound messages in real time via a single point of access.
