Report: AT&T to extend monitoring to SMBs

According to a report in The New York Times, AT&T is planning to extend its remote monitoring security capabilities into the small and medium-sized business market. the tools would allow and SMB owner to monitor employees, customer and business activities in multiple locations.

The offering could be the latest step in AT&T's effort to grow its family of security solutions, which increasingly are moving beyond traditional network security. Though AT&T already offers these tools to large enterprise clients, it will be interesting to see if the latest move draws fire from privacy advocates--or maybe we should say "more fire," since AT&T's involvement in the federal government's wiretapping program, and its recent moves in content recognition already are drawing plenty of fire.
