Globe Telecom, through its information and communications technology arm Globe Business, strengthens its position to best aid the Philippines in its fight against cybersecurity threats that continually put the operations of both businesses and government agencies at risk.
Given the increased focus on digital transformation in both the private and public sectors, Globe Business has recognized that this has also fuelled an upswing in cybersecurity threats. “The frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks and breaches are on the rise across all industries. Because we always take security seriously, Globe Business has evolved to put itself in the best position to protect its customers by growing its Managed Security Services portfolio and improving its expertise and ability to deliver these solutions,” said Mike Frausing, Globe Business Senior Advisor.
The newly-operationalized Globe Advanced Security Operations Centre (ASOC) powered by Trustwave houses the infrastructure and teams which deliver services such as customer service platform management, threat detection, threat hunting, and incident response for both Globe Telecom’s network and the network of its customers. It is linked to Trustwave’s global network of nine federated ASOCs and is supported by a worldwide team of more than 1,600 security-minded professionals.
In addition, Globe Business has also forged a strategic partnership with Singtel that will not only further build its expertise, but will also sustain its ability to be at the forefront of delivering a comprehensive and best-of-breed suite of cybersecurity solutions. Singtel’s experience and rapid growth in the cybersecurity business, coupled with its global capabilities with the acquisition of Trustwave, make Singtel a natural partner for Globe in this important endeavor.
“It is imperative for businesses and the government to stay one step ahead of such cyber threats. This partnership leverages Globe Telecom’s understanding of the Philippine landscape, Singtel’s expertise in providing managed services, and Trustwave’s experience in delivering enterprise-grade managed security services,” Frausing said.
Globe Telecom’s strategic partnership with Singtel, the ecosystem of cybersecurity players such as Trustwave and Palo Alto Network, complements its existing partnerships with FireEye and Arbor, and strengthens the services and solutions that help keep customers secure from ever-evolving threats. The collaboration with best-of-breed technology partners has allowed Globe Business to provide a comprehensive suite of cybersecurity services such as Vulnerability Assessment, Network Security, Application Security and Content Security, Anti-DDoS, Endpoint Security and Access Control, and Security Management, to name a few.
Globe Business’ enhanced Managed Security Services, complemented by its ASOC, ensures that it maintains its ability to be well-positioned to address the continuously evolving threats that put Globe and its customers at risk.
