As the COVID-19 infection numbers continue to fluctuate and lockdowns put a strain on businesses in the Philippines, VMWare has introduced a series of new work-from-home cloud solutions to provide support during the pandemic.
The new innovations come at a time when the Philippines is adapting to a mobile and digital-first economy in order to cope with the evolving situation.
“In this new normal, customers need employees who are able to work seamlessly in a secure environment, anywhere, anytime,” said Walter So, the Country Manager of VMware Philippines.
Since the COVID-19 numbers began to rise, at least 100 establishments in the country and more than 10,000 employees across education, retail and commerce have benefited from VMWare’s Workspace ONE remote working solutions.
Adding to the solution, a number of new features have been announced to provide employees with more secure digital workspaces across any devices, which is becoming increasingly important as cyberattacks are becoming more common during the pandemic.
“Whether it is for work-from-home, on cloud or on security, all these solutions are relevant for all sectors,” said Sanjay K. Deshmukh, VMWare’s Managing Director for Southeast Asia and Korea.
The US-based cloud solutions company also announced VMWare SD-WAN by VevoCloud, a new cloud solution that would provide businesses with increased bandwidth. This means that businesses would be able to access cloud services and private data centers at greater speeds, enabling enhanced network scalability.
In partnership with Google Cloud and AWS, VMWare has expanded its access and lowered the costs of migration to their solutions for businesses in the Philippines by delivering the full stack of software on the cloud giants’ engines.
“In the past few months, [our partners] have helped to set up remote working capabilities, architect cloud and app infrastructure, and deploy intrinsic security solutions for many in a matter of weeks, and sometimes sooner,” said Mr. So.
VMWare’s new innovations will be delivered through their partner ecosystem across the Philippines.
“We are extremely grateful for their tireless efforts,” added Mr. So.
To upgrade security measures, VMWare introduced Carbon Black Cloud, a cloud native endpoint protection platform that would allow IT teams to detect, respond and prevent malware threats in real-time.
Following reports earlier in the year that VMWare vRealize Automation Cloud Service had been released in Singapore, the service is now available in the Philippines, too.
Some of the top companies in the Philippines are using VMWare’s cloud solutions, including local telecommunications giant Globe Telecommunications, Metrobank, the country’s second largest bank as well as Integrated Computer Systems, AMTI, MDi and VST ECS Phils Inc.
