ePLDT, the ICT arm of PLDT Enterprise, has partnered with Swiss technology firm Acronis in strengthening its portfolio to assist businesses in mapping out their Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plans.
Acronis offers AI-based Active Protection technology, blockchain-based authentication, and unique hybrid-cloud architecture to protect all data in any environment including physical, virtual, cloud, mobile workloads, and applications, all at a low and predictable cost.
Through the partnership, ePLDT will be offering solutions that will leverage on the Acronis Cyber Cloud – a platform that enables service providers to deliver data protection in an easy, efficient and secure way. One solution such as Data Back-up and Recovery Solution, customers can gain access to hybrid cloud backup, recovery and AI-powered anti-malware, manageable from a single, comprehensive console.
“The increasing need to employ work-from-home arrangements today requires extreme vigilance when it comes to securing a company’s IT infrastructure. We believe that this partnership will allow us to better improve the Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plans of our customers in different industries which are crucial given these uncertain times,” said Vic Tria, PLDT FVP and Enterprise Revenue Group Head.
According to Acronis’ just-released Cyber Readiness Report 2020, 92% of global companies adopted new technologies to enable remote work. The same research shows 50% of global companies have encountered cyberattacks at least once a week in the past few months. Incidents of fake websites, phishing attacks, malware, and other cybercrimes are making it critical for enterprises to ensure their preparedness for this new way of working and be able to respond to disruptions from the minor inconveniences to those with more disastrous consequences.
“These platforms will enable ePLDT to deliver not only an easy, and efficient access to backup and disaster recovery for its customers, thru a single management console, but also provide an additional layer of cyber protection,” shared Jeff Mendoza, PLDT Enterprise Asia Pacific Regional Head.
