According to Reuters, AT&T today launches a news channel that focuses on Internet security issues for its business and government customers.

However, the company’s own press release on BusinessWire added more information, including the fact that the channel is available only to subscribers of another of the AT&T’s services:

AT&T Internet Security News Network (AT&T ISNN), a first-of-its-kind 24/7 video Webcast that provides enterprises with critical security news and information, helping them to stay abreast of the latest security issues and remain one step ahead of malicious activities proliferating on the Internet.

AT&T ISNN is exclusively available to subscribers of the company’s flagship alerting and monitoring service, AT&T Internet Protect(SM). The news network delivers up-to-date information from security experts and forensic analysts directly to subscribers’ desktops, around the clock. AT&T ISNN also provides live emergency broadcasts as security attacks occur, keeping customers informed until the event is resolved. Enterprises, in turn, benefit from AT&T’s unique approach to network-based security designed to give them advanced warning of attacks, such as worms and viruses, before they wreak havoc on their businesses.
