Eastern Communications, one of the premier telecommunications companies in the country, recently announced its partnership with Cato Networks, a global enterprise networking and security company based in Israel.

Eastern Communications is the first Philippine telecommunications company to partner with Cato as part of its commitment to provide world-class connectivity and more simplified wide area networking solutions to the enterprise sector, allowing them to continue to thrive in the post COVID-19 world.  

Cato is the world’s first Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) platform, an enterprise networking technology that converges the functions of network and security point solutions into a unified, global cloud-native service. It provides a single network that connects and secures any enterprise resource – physical, cloud, and mobile – anywhere. This emerging cutting-edge service is a response to the need of today’s digital enterprises, offering holistic security, reduced costs, hyper scalability, and simplified management.

With Eastern Communications and Cato, all enterprise network resources, including branch locations, the mobile workforce, and physical and cloud data centers will be unified, providing a holistic, agile, and adaptable service to the business. 

“We want to help Filipino businesses become future-proofed, and to bring technology conversations from cost to business benefits and cost savings. Cato’s SASE platform is a perfect fit for Eastern Communications’ customers who are seeking a transformative evolution on how multiple domestic branches should be connected, and bringing their Philippine offices closer to their global branches or headquarters and to the public cloud infrastructure, in the simplest possible way of orchestrating networking and cybersecurity,” said Edsel Paglinawan, Eastern Communications Head of Product and Innovation. 

“We are very pleased to have Eastern Communications join our regional partner program. The solutions provider has a strong reputation for helping organizations of all sizes understand and address their digital transformation challenges, from cloud migration to work-from-home,” shared Daniel Lee, Cato Networks Vice President of Sales, Asia-Pacific and Japan. 

With the joint forces of Eastern Communications with Cato, the company will continue to fulfill their promise of the highest level of service to their customers while helping them adapt to the changing business environment.
