Protecting Sensitive Data: NEXTGEN Group Philippines, Stellar Cyber Partner to Mitigate Risks

Protecting Sensitive Data: NEXTGEN Group Philippines, Stellar Cyber Partner to Mitigate Risks

By Greg Tavarez

The Philippines is home to a growing number of businesses and is a hub for business process outsourcing, or BPO. BPO companies are third-party service providers that specialize in performing specific business functions for other organizations. These functions may include tasks such as accounting, customer service and technical support, human resources, marketing and information technology.

As third-party service providers, these companies handle sensitive data for their clients. This puts a target on their back for cyberattacks. Of course, this matters greatly. If BPO companies do not have strong cybersecurity measures in place, businesses that outsource their processes to BPO companies put their confidential information at risk.

As a means to mitigate the risks and provide cybersecurity solutions for businesses across the Philippines, NEXTGEN Group Philippines and Stellar Cyber, through a strategic partnership, are offering a suite of cybersecurity solutions that sit alongside NEXTGEN’s diverse and complementary vendor portfolio leveraging Stellar Cyber’s Open XDR platform.

NEXTGEN Group Philippines is a provider of cybersecurity and data resiliency solutions with a wide-ranging portfolio of vendors that it partners with to provide its clients with solutions to address different cybersecurity challenges.

Stellar Cyber's Open XDR platform is a security platform that provides unified threat detection, analysis and response capabilities across multiple security tools and data sources. This combines multiple security technologies into a single, unified platform, providing organizations with a complete view of their security posture.

The Open XDR platform ingests data from various security tools and data sources and uses machine-learning (ML) algorithms to correlate and analyze the data to detect security threats. The platform also identifies known and unknown threats and provides real-time alerts and threat intelligence to help security teams respond quickly and effectively.

With those advanced threat detection and response capabilities, the platform helps organizations stay ahead of the curve and proactively defend against cyber-attacks.

The combination of NEXTGEN’s extensive portfolio of vendors and Stellar Cyber’s Open XDR platform provides businesses with a comprehensive suite of tools to protect against cyberattacks. The partnership also enables organizations in the region to enhance their cybersecurity posture and better protect their sensitive data by leveraging Stellar Cyber’s Open XDR platform.

“Partnering with Stellar Cyber allows us to provide our channel partners with a cybersecurity solution that combines the best technologies with expertise, capability and an advanced channel services model from NEXTGEN," said Jenny Diamzon, Managing Director, Cyber Security and Data Resiliency, NEXTGEN Philippines. “Stellar Cyber will be supported by our go-to-market teams and our in-house cybersecurity professionals and proprietary CyberLab platform.”

Jim O'Hara, Chief Revenue Officer of Stellar Cyber, adds to what Diamzon said, stating that the partnership (effective immediately) is an important development in the country’s cybersecurity landscape.
