AT&T announced its plans to acquire security startup AlienVault  to expand its line of cybersecurity products targeted at small and medium-sized businesses.

The acquisition will combine AlienVault's expertise in threat intelligence with AT&T's cybersecurity solutions portfolio that includes threat detection and prevention as well as response technologies and services. AT&T business customers will be able to access its unified security management platform that helps make organizations more effective at threat detection and response, by giving them access to a broad set of enterprise-grade security capabilities.

After the acquisition closes, AlienVault will be a key part of AT&T's Edge-to-Edge IntelligenceSM capabilities, spanning from the core of a company's network to all endpoints, to reveal actionable intelligence in near-real time.

AT&T said it will continue to invest in and build on AlienVault's foundational Unified Security Management platform and Open Threat Exchange, the world's first and largest open threat intelligence community, as the company integrates AlienVault into AT&T's cybersecurity suite of services.

Thaddeus Arroyo, CEO, AT&T Business
AlienVault's expertise in threat intelligence will improve our ability to help organizations detect and respond to cybersecurity attacks. Together, with our enterprise-grade detection, response and remediation capabilities, we're providing scalable, intelligent, affordable security for business customers of all sizes.

Barmak Meftah, President and CEO, AlienVault
We're thrilled to join forces with AT&T. They bring a robust cybersecurity portfolio with an industry-leading technology ecosystem. This deal accelerates our ability to deliver on the AlienVault mission, which is to democratize threat detection and response to companies of all sizes.
