Technology is changing rapidly, and that brings higher demands on your network while pushing bandwidth requirements. Ethernet solutions from AT&T can scale as your agency grows and can expand geographically to accommodate that growth. You need a service that has a variety of bandwidth and configuration options that include switched, dedicated or point-to-point.

Security applied to computing devices such as computers and smartphones, as well as private and public networks. The field includes all five components: hardware, software, data, people, and procedures by which digital equipment, information and services are protected from unintended or unauthorized access, change or destruction, and is of growing importance due to the increasing reliance of computer systems in most societies. It includes physical security to prevent theft of equipment and information security to protect the data on that equipment. Those terms generally do not refer to physical security, but a common belief among computer security experts is that a physical security breach is one of the worst kinds of security breaches as it generally allows full access to both data and equipment.
