The international security services provider, Continent 8, has confirmed a number of strategic partnerships to deliver global network and cybersecurity services to the Philippines.
Continent 8 Technologies’ latest key partnerships have been formed to enable the delivery of its globally respected services directly to businesses throughout the Philippines. According to Continent 8, the new partners approached them as they wished to offer the company’s advanced DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) protection and mitigation services alongside Continent 8’s global private connectivity to Philippines based companies.
Following network expansion in 2016 which brought Continent 8’s European, North American and Asia Pacific networks together for global coverage across a multi-terabit network, the company now has over 25 points of presence globally enabling it to deliver its service portfolio into a number of additional regions.
Partnerships have been announced with IP Converge Data Services Ltd (IPC, an ePDLT company) and LR Data Center and Solutions, Inc, both headquartered in Makati City, Manila. The company claims it carefully selected these significant players in the local connectivity and data centre markets as they are both businesses which share Continent 8’s values of service excellence, innovation and integrity.
By forging these strategic partnerships, Continent 8 brings proven expertise and the delivery, management and support is carried out by the partners – enabling continuity, use of local knowledge and leveraging existing relationships. The company states that this model is now to be extended to other regions in the coming months through more carefully selected partners who share Continent 8’s ethos and who wish to bring Continent 8’s service portfolio to their own customer base. In addition further services will be rolled out in due course and will allow Filipino businesses to connect globally using their local, trusted partners.
Michael Tobin, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer said: “With nearly 20 years of experience and operations, we have built a global reputation for service excellence alongside a unique global footprint of data centres and network points of presence. By partnering with IPC and LR Data, we bring to the table advanced DDoS Mitigation services to Philippine enterprises, at a time when attacks are becoming increasingly prolific.”
