Globe Telecom Inc. and partner Singapore Telecommunications Ltd. have entered into a new deal to enhance Globe’s information security capabilities.
“Globe Telecom, through its IT Enabled Services Group, has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Singapore Telecommunications Limited (Singtel), Asia’s leading information and communications technology (ICT) services provider, to strengthen its information security capabilities and expand its portfolio by offering Trustwave managed security services.” Globe said in a statement.
Using Trustwave, Globe Managed Security Services will provide enterprises with security covering vulnerability assessment, network security, application security and content security, endpoint security and access control and security management.
“We are in the midst of a digital revolution. Cybersecurity threats have been constantly evolving and we believe that a more proactive stance against attacks is necessary,” said Gil Genio, Globe Chief Technology and Information Officer and Chief Strategy Officer.
“Because we recognize that not everyone is capable of implementing a comprehensive solution, the need for managed security services is more apparent. Moreover, security is what most CIO’s and CTO’s we’ve been talking to have been raising as one of their principal concerns,” he added.
Bill Chang, CEO, Group Enterprise at Singtel, noted the urgency of the situation. “The frequency and sophistication of cyberattacks and breaches are on the increase across all industries. Hence, it is imperative for businesses to stay one step ahead of such cyber threats.”
This agreement leverages on Globe’s intimate understanding of the local landscape, Singtel’s expertise in providing managed services, and Trustwave’s experience in delivering enterprise-grade managed security services.
“Together, we will help Philippine companies protect their assets and customers in order to safeguard their reputation against cybercrime,” the statement read.
