Radius Telecoms, Inc. (Radius) has teamed up with cybersecurity firm Fortinet to provide solutions to small businesses (SMB) and ensure that their networks are safe and secure from cyber threats.
The weakness of SMBs security infrastructure make them easy targets for security breach. This is what Radius and Fortinet want to address with the partnership.
“Most of the time, SMEs are unaware that they are already under attack,” said Quiel Delgado, president and CEO, Radius Telecoms Inc. “And when they do discover the breach, they do not know how to recover from it. This setup is common in small operations where end-point protections are not given importance. And we cannot blame the business owners for maintaining a lean team wherein IT support is typically outsourced or there is none at all.”
Radius, through its Ignite brand, is bringing the globally recognized leader for cybersecurity and firewall solutions, Fortinet, to help the SMB segment.
Radius Telecoms is a 100% Meralco company, delivering services on an end-to-end full fiber optic network covering more than 5,000 km in the Metro Manila and nearby provinces, as well as Clark and Cebu, with plans to expand to other major cities in the Visayas region by 2021.
“With the easy-to-own FortiGate FG-40F security hardware, our SMB customers now have a credible posture to fend off known viruses and malware. Its general firewall protection can support up to fifty users at any given time. The plug-and-play hardware is preconfigured, so it can be easily deployed and conveniently connects to their Ignite fiber internet service,” Delgado said.
“At Fortinet, we aim to ensure that all our solutions are always accessible and available for organizations of all sizes,” said Louie Castaneda. country manager, Fortinet (Philippines).
SMB customers can get the FortiGate FG-40F bundle on their Ignite Fiber Internet subscription for as low as P2,999 per month with a 24-month contract term. The package includes the unified threat management and FortiCare warranty subscription.
