BUSINESS TECH | Globe Business, Zscaler team up to strengthen PH cybersecurity
In this day and age, cybersecurity has become a necessity more than a competitive advantage. The introduction of remote work, constant use of collaboration tools, digitization of personal records, mainstreaming of digital payments, and the daily exchange of company and customer data over the internet are only some of the factors that should make cybersecurity a priority for organizations across the Philippines.
In line with this, Globe Business joined the Zscaler Summit Partner Program to help companies drive their digital transformation, as business activities take a dramatic shift online.
The Zscaler cloud platform is the largest cloud security platform in the world, processing more than 100 billion transactions and detecting about 100 million threats per day from users across 185 countries. Zscaler serves nearly 4,000 customers across all major industries, including over 400 of the Forbes Global 2000 companies.
“With the volatility of business environments, the complexity of applications and programs, and the urgency to shift to the cloud, every organization’s IT security should evolve accordingly,” shares Peter Maquera, senior vice president for Globe Business. “This is why our partnership with Zscaler is very timely in helping businesses transform their cybersecurity approach, so they could focus on educating and empowering employees with secure, remote access to applications through the world’s largest security cloud.”
Through this partnership, Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA) and Zscaler Private Access (ZPA) are now part of Globe Business’ growing cybersecurity solutions portfolio. Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA) is a cloud security service that transforms networks by delivering cloud-based internet and web security that scales to all users, regardless of location. Meanwhile, Zscaler Private Access (ZPA) delivers on Zero Trust Network Access by securing access to private applications without those applications or users ever connecting to the network.
As a long-standing ally for digital transformation, Globe Business encourages companies to integrate their cybersecurity strategies along with their business continuity plans. The path towards a cyber-secure nation is within reach with Globe’s reliable and resilient network backed by the world’s leading cybersecurity experts.
“The days of all employees working in an office and connecting to a corporate network are gone,” said Andrew Mann, Zscaler director of Alliances and Channel for Asia Pacific and Japan. “Modern business must help employees be effective no matter where they work, and this demands a cloud-first approach to security. Zscaler was built in the cloud and for the cloud in order to securely connect authorized users to the right applications. Together with Globe, our global resources and our round-the-clock detection capabilities—which contribute to approximately 120,000 unique security updates a day, could ensure that businesses are protected from security threats.”
