KCAT, Inc. Ramps Up Cybersecurity with Globe Business

Peter Maquera, Senior Vice President for Globe Business, and Joel Dabao, President & CEO of KCAT

As the economy proceeds to embrace the new normal, cybersecurity has become necessary in ensuring that all digital transformation initiatives happen without disruption.

To address the public’s growing need for secure connectivity services, Kabankalan Community Antenna Television, Inc. (KCAT) tapped Globe Business, the enterprise arm of Globe Telecom, for support in managing its cybersecurity defense.

“We aim to be the best Cable TV and Internet Service Provider in the Southern Area of Negros,” said Joel Dabao, President & CEO of KCAT. “Our vision requires us to be one step ahead of our customers’ needs. Seeing that demand for connectivity has steadily increased over the past months, we knew that we needed to upgrade our cybersecurity. However, doing so would mean investing in manpower, technology, and training. Thanks to Globe we were able to do just that—minus the time and effort of putting up a whole new cybersecurity department.”

Dabao shared that, through Globe Secure Internet Access (SIA) Proactive Response, KCAT received on-demand incident response support, ensuring that its network remains guarded with cybersecurity experts on standby 24/7. With the solution, KCAT has access to premium internet service, proactive cybersecurity consulting, and priority incident response support from Secureworks—one of Globe’s esteemed partners in cybersecurity.

SIA Proactive Response allows enterprises to gain entry to Secureworks Incident Management Retainer (IMR), which affords companies to collaborate with seasoned experts to limit damage, minimize work stoppages, expedite recovery efforts, and help prevent future cyber threat incidents. Secureworks—a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services, Worldwide (March 2019)—is Globe’s partner in cybersecurity, leveraging machine learning, analytics, and human intelligence. Its solutions help prevent, detect, and respond to global threats across six international Security Operations Centers, processing up to 310 billion security events daily for over 4,000 customers in more than 50 countries.

“At Globe, we take security seriously,” mentioned Peter Maquera, Senior Vice President for Globe Business. “It’s every business’s responsibility to add a cybersecurity layer to their initiatives. Digital transformation is not without its challenges, especially when business success also means that threats are more than ready to strike at any moment. Together with Secureworks, we’re able to combine proprietary technology and threat intelligence with Globe’s robust direct internet services, enabling our clients to uninterruptedly serve their customers digitally.”
