Linked to nine other Trustwave ASOCs globally, the Globe Advanced Security Operations Centre provides enterprises with real-time monitoring and protection against cyber threats


Businesses in the Philippines can now subscribe to Trustwave's Managed Secruity Services through Globe Telecom's Advanced Security Operations Centre (ASOC) in Manila.

Trustwave Managed Security Services help businesses address advanced information security threats while alleviating the pressures created by resource constraints, skills shortages, compliance requirements and the rapid adoption of new technologies.

The managed security services include vulnerability assessment; network security; application security and content security; endpoint security, and access control and security management.

Powered by Trustwave, the Globe ASOC is linked to a global network of nine Trustwave ASOCs. The ASOC combines local threat awareness from Globe, with global threat visibility from Trustwave's ASOC network, which is supported by a team of more than 1,600 cyber security professionals worldwide.

 By sharing threat intelligence, threat data analytics and advanced security automation, the ASOCs provide enterprises with real-time monitoring and protection against cyber threats.

The Globe ASOC is the latest effort under the Memorandum of Understanding that Singtel and Globe had signed in December 2015 to strengthen the latter's security capabilities.  Singtel is the parent company of Trustwave.

 "Our relationship with Globe leverages their intimate understanding of the local landscape and Trustwave's experience 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," said Trustwave Chief Executive Officer and President Mr Robert J. McCullen.

Commenting on the Globe ASOC, Ernest Cu, Chief Executive Officer, Globe Telecom said: "When privacy is breached, it doesn't only compromise information but it also puts businesses and individuals at risk in so many ways. So we knew that there was clearly a need to build a dedicated facility to help solve this as cybersecurity is becoming a primary concern of the public and private sectors, as well as consumers as a whole."
