ePLDT

ePLDT Managed Security Solutions (MSS) is designed to deliver protection at various entry points of attack, be it through web, mobile, email or applications.  The suite offers a spectrum of security solutions – firewall, IPS, anti-virus, anti-spam, anti-bot, and SSL inspection – that, combined with the  infrastructure of the VITRO Data Center network and its pool of experts as well as tech support personnel, empowers enterprises to reduce and manage cyber attack risks.

According to ePLDT, this offering comes at a very opportune time.  Research conducted by Kaspersky Lab showed that the Philippines is among the top 50 countries most attacked by malware such as Trojans, worms and viruses.  Cybercrime, which includes hacking of online account information and other data theft, has also become an increasingly growing occurrence.  With this spate of cyber security threats, it has become imperative for enterprises to employ solutions to mitigate and prevent breaches within their IT systems.

“We have designed a fully managed security suite that looks at cyber security from every angle to ensure that our customers are well protected at every stage of the IT lifecycle,” said Nerisse Ramos, ePLDT SVP & COO.

ePLDT also noted that in the past, available IT security solutions were mainly reactive and not designed to catch the variety of threats present today. A recent market insight by Gartner Institute, however, showed two major cyber security shifts: one that focused on detection and response, and one that focused on the establishment of protocols for cyber security risk response and mitigation.

“Cyber attacks cause not just huge financial losses – ultimately, it can lead to loss of customer confidence and trust,” said Eric Alberto, PLDT EVP for Enterprise, International & Carrier Business Group and ePLDT CEO.  “ePLDT’s Managed Security Solutions enable enterprises to have a higher level of security, and protect not just their bottomline, but ultimately their company’s reputation from the impact of cyber security breaches.  The launch of this service is in-line with the PLDT Group’s mission to be a trusted end-to-end ICT partner to the Enterprise market.”
