AT&T completes delivery of MTIPS for National Labor Relations board


AT&T has completed the delivery of Managed Trusted Internet Protocol Services (MTIPS) to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in March under GSA’s new Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) technology procurement program, the company said in a statement. It was the first Task Order completed by an agency and vendor under EIS, says AT&T.

The MTIPS service provides NLRB cybersecurity protections supporting inbound and outbound network traffic to and from the public internet as well as across NLRB intranet sites, according to AT&T. It also includes integration with Open Threat Exchange (OTX). OTX delivers community-generated threat data, enables collaborative research and automates the process of updating security infrastructure with threat data from any source, says AT&T.

MTIPS was developed by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to allow U.S. Federal agencies to physically and logically connect to the public Internet and other external connections in compliance with the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Trusted Internet Connection (TIC) initiative.

The National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency that helps safeguard employees’ rights to organize and to determine whether to have unions as their bargaining representative.
