Eastern Communications ramps up cybersecurity solutions as it partners with Fortinet

Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, has been a driving force in the evolution of cybersecurity, helping organizations protect against the growing digital attack surface, secure critical devices, data and technology infrastructures. 

Eastern Communications, one of the premier telecommunications companies in the country, continues to strengthen its world-class ICT services as it sealed a partnership with multinational cybersecurity solutions provider, Fortinet. 

Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, has been a driving force in the evolution of cybersecurity, helping organizations protect against the growing digital attack surface, secure critical devices, data and technology infrastructures. 

With the ballooning number of cyberthreats targeting businesses, Eastern Communications aims to meet the demand for enhanced technology architectures and digital security strategies to help enterprises secure their day-to-day operations. 

“Underscoring our commitment to cybersecurity innovation and excellence, we are thrilled to partner with Eastern Communications to offer the industry’s highest-performing cybersecurity platform. The Fortinet Security Fabric is an integrated security architecture, automated for operational efficiency across the entire expanded attack surface and helps organizations close security gaps, increase efficiency and response times,” said Louie Castañeda, Country Manager, Fortinet Philippines.

Through its unique partnership with Fortinet and by leveraging its Security Fabric, Eastern Communications would be able to democratize cybersecurity by offering key services that provide a broad array of next-generation security and networking functions to more companies. These include Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM), Next-generation Firewall Appliance (NGFW), Managed Firewall and Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN), among others. 

Bringing together visibility and remediation in a scalable solution, SIEM reduces the complexity of managing network and security operations to improve breach detection, and even prevent breaches. Meanwhile, NGFWs are powered by purpose-built security processing units (SPUs) and uniquely meet the performance needs of hyperscale and hybrid IT architectures. Managed SD-WAN, on the other hand, accelerate network and security convergence, orchestrating consistent network and security policies.

This pandemic has been a period of great challenges and opportunities.  It has allowed organizations to see the significance of digital transformation—with focus on cybersecurity. As a trusted and reliable business partner of leading companies in the country, it is our duty to guide them and provide them with the latest technologies as they adapt to the quarantine economy,” shared Eastern Communications Co-Coordinator Atty.
