PLDT achieves Advanced MSSP Partner status, the first in PH

PLDT Enterprise has recently achieved the distinguished status of Advanced Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) Partner with a specialization in Fortinet's Secure SD-WAN – the first telco to secure the SD-WAN Specialization in the Philippines. This further bolsters the PLDT Group’s expertise and capabilities in the ever-evolving landscape of managed networking and cybersecurity.

Fortinet's Secure SD-WAN technology enables PLDT to deliver agile, scalable, and secure networking solutions to its clients, enabling more businesses to embark on their respective digital transformation journeys as businesses increasingly rely on the cloud for critical operations and data storage. 

For PLDT's customers, this recognition signifies a continued commitment to innovation where they can leverage PLDT's enhanced expertise, recognized globally, to ensure their networks remain resilient, secure, and optimized for performance. They are also assured of better customer experience in the capable hands of a trusted partner with specialized knowledge in Fortinet's Secure SD-WAN technology.  


With PLDT being an Advanced MSSP Partner with SD-WAN Specialization, PLDT Enterprise customers are assured that the SD-WAN solutions are tailor-fit to their business strategies which are backed by an operational support team with Fortinet’s Network Security Expert (NSE) certifications in managing SD-WAN technologies.   


“This recognition brings immense benefit to our customers as it bolsters our capability to provide cutting-edge security and SD-WAN solutions. These solutions are pivotal in today's digital landscape, where remote work, cloud computing, and secure connectivity are paramount in helping our customers realize their visions in their own transformational digital roadmaps,” shared PLDT and Smart First Vice President and Head of Enterprise and International Business Groups Mitch Locsin.   


“This differentiates PLDT, being the sole service provider able to offer managed SD-WAN solutions using the Fortinet portfolio,” he added.  


Fortinet's consistent global leadership in both SD-WAN and security, as acknowledged by Gartner, further elevates the value of PLDT’s achievement. Gartner, a globally respected authority in technology research and analysis, has consistently recognized Fortinet as a leader in these critical fields, highlighting its commitment to innovation and excellence.  


PLDT Enterprise and Fortinet’s shared common goal is to provide new technologies and efficient management of SD-WAN solution to the enterprise market. PLDT has been a dedicated partner of Fortinet since 2019, collaborating on major SD-WAN projects for a range of customers.   


These recognitions and certifications contribute to PLDT's aspirational multi-year transformation, with elevating customer experience as one of the key priorities. Further, PLDT's dedication to the digital transformation of businesses is aligned with the PLDT Group's commitment as one of the founding members of the government-mandated Presidential Private Sector Advisory Council (PSAC) under the Digital Infrastructure Pillar, represented by its President and CEO Alfredo S. Panlilio.
