NetFoundry, has been selected by Fujitsu Philippines Inc. to provide cloud-native zero-trust security-based networking technology (SASE Platform) to help businesses across the Philippines to address key challenges resulting from the current global health crisis.
With the sudden changes brought by the pandemic, the alliance between Fujitsu and NetFoundry aims to enable businesses to respond effectively to the disruptions and achieve organizational resilience often referred to as Business Continuity Management (BCM).
Amid the pandemic, organizations needed to embrace flexible working arrangements, which brought challenges, such as poor and/or highly unstable internet connectivity, lack of suitable personal devices, unacceptable quality for voice services, and the need to provide secured access to applications.
The work-from-home VPN replacement solutions, formulated by the two tech companies, will help organizations to continue “business-as-usual operations” with minimal loss of productivity by supporting work from home operations with highly secure network connectivity.
The solutions will also provide on-demand networking, as agile as the applications and IT functions it serves and, deliver unmatched control and security with software-defined perimeter and zero trusts—this means that organizations can now have secure remote access to workplace tools, software applications, and resources from any location over any connection, on-demand, and in just a matter of days. It will also help them become much more resilient around business processes, workforce productivity, customer service, and supply chain/logistics.
