Article content

Telstra International, the global arm of leading telecommunications and technology company Telstra, opened the doors to its new Telstra Security Service Centre (TSSC) in Manila, Philippines, to enhance its capabilities and coverage of managed cyber security services for its customers globally.

Telstra International’s managed security services combine cyber security expertise and threat intelligence, together with a suite of services to help customers manage risk and stay ahead of potential threats. This is complemented by Telstra Purple, a Telstra consulting and professional services division, in supporting customers through threat assessment, advisory, compliance and assurance.

The TSSC in Manila is designed to meet growing customer needs in cyber security  across the region. According to analyst firm IDC, worldwide investments in hardware, software and services related to cyber security are expected to reach nearly USD $300 billion in 2026, driven by the ongoing threat of cyber attacks, the demands of providing a secure hybrid work environment, and the need to meet data privacy and governance requirements.

Through its strategic position in Asia, the new TSSC will work as one with its global counterpart in the United Kingdom, to enhance and expand the delivery of its managed cyber security services with its 24/7/365 follow-the-sun coverage model. This will enable Telstra International customers to strengthen their security posture by helping them to prevent, detect, analyse, respond to and remediate cyber security incidents.

“We’re seeing increased demand for real-time and effective cyber-protection across North Asia, given the recent cyber attacks on critical infrastructure, businesses and public services. It’s more important than ever for organisations to stay ahead of the curve in the complex and rapidly changing cyber security landscape. Enabling our customers to focus on their core business without having to worry about interruptions is at the heart of Telstra, and this centre is the latest example of our commitment to providing our customer with the robust cyber security services that they need,”  said Bence Horvath, Head of Cyber Security Practise, North Asia, Telstra International.
