CyberInt Comes to PH as IPV Network brings world leader in Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is a topic most relevant today than ever before. As more and newer technologies and machines are invented and propagate, as more data become essential and relevant, cybersecurity will increasingly be important.

CyberInt is now available in the Philippines through IPV Network for businesses in the financial industry, such as banks and accounting firms, gaming industry, e-commerce players and key utilities companies.

Indeed, no business is safe from cyber threats. From stealing data, to defacing online assets, to the installation of malware on personal computers, companies of all types and sizes need to take both reactive and proactive measures to keep themselves protected.

We don't have to look far. Just recently, the Philippines' Commission on Elections' (COMELEC) voters' data were hacked and exposed to the public. The data may be basic but these are private information of individuals who are now exposed to a higher risk of identity theft, to say the least.

IPV Network CEO, Miguel Ramos, first learned about CyberInt during a business trip to Tel Aviv, Israel, last 2015 where he met Amir Ofek, the CEO of CyberInt. With the growth of the Philippine economy and CyberInt’s targeted move into Western Europe and Asia, the company heads saw a vision of introducing world-class cyber security standards to the Philippines.
"The Asia Pacific market, specifically the Philippines, is considered a strategic market for the entry of CyberInt. With the rise of cyber crime in the Philippines that leverages on the strong social media activity in the country, we see a great need for cyber protection beyond the perimeter of organizations based there. Implementing the right cyber risk strategy, we will ensure that organizations are vigilant when the next cyber attack arrives, and we will be proactive about their cybersecurity planning. Globe is at the forefront of this approach with CyberInt support working closely with Globe management to ensure they are one step ahead with their innovative cyber approach. We are also partnering with IPV Network to help promote cyber protection beyond the perimeter to other organizations across the Philippines,” shares Amir Ofek 
CyberInt’s most immediate prospective clients would range from those in the financial industry, such as banks and accounting firms, to those in the gaming industry, ecommerce players and key utilities companies. Any company, however, with digital assets and sensitive information is prone to online attacks and must take both precautionary and preventive measures to keep itself safe.

Through this partnership between IPV Network and CyberInt, Filipino companies will have the means to do so, with targeted intelligence, targeted services, and targeted protection that goes beyond the perimeter.
