Manila, Philippines – As part of its efforts to advance online security, telecommunications company Eastern Communications has expressed its commitment to educating and protecting businesses against threats through its offerings and initiatives against cyber attacks. This strategic endeavour comes after the celebration of Safer Internet Day 2024.

For this initiative, the company emphasised its priority on providing staff training programmes that focus on digital safety. Through this, they can equip their employees with essential skills to identify and effectively counter potential online threats.

At the same time, the commitment to cybersecurity is reinforced by completing ISO 27001 certification, a globally recognised standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). This certification emphasises Eastern Communications’ dedication to safeguarding data and managing information for its stakeholders.

This process extended its cybersecurity expertise to customers and partners through various avenues, like thought leadership sessions, technological workshops such as Access Eastern, and the dissemination of online educational materials such as videos, posts, and blogs.

Furthermore, Eastern Communications provides comprehensive cyber defence solutions to its clients, outlining four essential elements for online safety to counter threats from emails and online sources effectively.This complete suite consists of the Sophos XG firewall (Next Generation Firewall), Central Intercept X Advanced (CIXA), Central Email Advanced for email security, and Sophos Phish Threat for educating the whole organisation.

In this context, the Sophos XG Firewall serves as the next-generation firewall, providing strong protection during the initial stages of ransomware attacks. It is equipped with high-performing IPS engines and offers easy, simple, and flexible tools to secure the LAN.

Meanwhile, CIXA is a cloud-based security platform that integrates advanced endpoint detection and response with anti-malware protection, identifying cybersecurity vulnerabilities and thwarting malicious attempts. As an endpoint security solution, CIXA utilises machine learning to comprehend emerging threats and risks.

To complete the online defence suite, Eastern Communications offers Central Email Advanced, a secure email gateway designed to safeguard businesses from all email threats. 

In addition, Sophos Phish Threats evaluates the readiness of an organisation against real-world attacks.

Speaking about the initiative, Rex Evangelista, head of the information technology department at Eastern Communications, said, “We understand the threats online scams pose, and they have become increasingly sophisticated. “Our mission is not only to provide top-notch security solutions but also to educate our internal and external stakeholders to practice awareness and resilience against these threats.”

“In today’s digital age, understanding the landscape of online threats is as crucial as having the tools to combat them. Our approach is holistic—we focus on empowering users with knowledge as well as technology,” concluded Evangelista.
