Continent 8 will allow businesses in the Philippines to connect globally using local partners, after agreeing to deliver global network and cybersecurity services to the region.
The Isle of Man based technology company has selected IP Converge Data Services (IPC) and LR Data Center and Solutions, both headquartered in Makati City in Manila, for sharing Continent 8’s values of service excellence, innovation and integrity.
Both significant players in the local connectivity and data centre markets, IPC and LR Data Center and Solutions will benefit from Continent 8’s advanced DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) protection services, alongside the company’s global private connectivity to Philippines based companies.
Michael Tobin, co-founder and chief executive officer at Continent 8, commented: “With nearly 20 years of experience and operations, we have built a global reputation for service excellence alongside a unique global footprint of data centres and network points of presence.
“By partnering with IPC and LR Data, we bring to the table advanced DDoS Mitigation services to Philippine enterprises, at a time when attacks are becoming increasingly prolific.”
In 2016, Continent 8 announced the completion of its latest network expansion, bringing its European, North American and Asia Pacific networks together to give global coverage across a multi-terabit network, with over 25 points of presence globally.
