Boston, Mass. – September 27, 2021 Guardicore, the segmentation company
simplifying Zero Trust enforcement, today announced a strategic engagement with
Amdocs, a leading provider of software and services to communications and media
companies, to implement its Centra Security Platform at Globe Telecom. The
platform will enable Globe, one of the Philippines’ largest telecommunications
providers, to gain superior visibility into network traffic across its entire
infrastructure, significantly reducing its threat surface and mitigating advanced
cyberthreats.

By offering complete visibility into how Globe’s servers communicate internally and
externally, the Centra platform will help Globe’s security team eliminate
unnecessary connections and create strict controls over what is – and is not –
acceptable based on Globe’s unique requirements. The platform’s visibility and
segmentation features make it possible to set up policies to prevent and contain an
initial breach and alert security teams to lateral movement and other suspicious
behaviors.

“We needed to adopt modern cybersecurity strategies and technologies to protect
our growing cloud infrastructure needs,” said Anton Bonifacio, Chief Information
Security Officer. “The micro-segmentation strategy implemented by Amdocs using
the Centra Security Platform provides complete visibility into our environment,
allowing us to effectively monitor and control traffic on our network and prevent
data breaches.”

“Globe has a large ecosystem of on-premise and cloud-based operations,
supporting numerous platforms and services used by millions of subscribers. This
makes it imperative for them to balance the agility and benefits of modern cloud
infrastructure while proactively securing a hybrid IT environment,” said Anthony
Goonetilleke, group president of Media, Network, and Technology at Amdocs. “Our
collaboration with Guardicore and their innovative software-defined micro-
segmentation platform will provide Globe with advanced cybersecurity solutions.”
“Our work with Amdocs and Globe is a powerful example of how businesses can use
software-defined micro-segmentation to protect critical applications and data from
sophisticated cyberattacks,” said Guardicore Co-Founder and VP of Business
Development Dror Sal’ee. “We’re committed to expanding our presence within Southeast Asia, specifically the Philippines, and are honored to work with an
innovator like Globe as part of the Amdocs partner ecosystem.”
