UK-based Bluedog Security Monitoring has signed an agreement with IT Security Distribution (ITSDI) to roll out managed detection and response offerings via the channel in the Philippines, supported by a second security operations centre (SOC) launch in Manila.

Operating as an ISO27001 certified vendor, the business – which is headquartered in London – specialises in Office 365 monitoring which can be activated remotely in response to the pandemic.

Terms of the distribution alliance will see ITSDI offer Bluedog’s entire range of services across the country with the aim of expanding reach in financial services and outsourcing sectors.

“Cyber security is a growing problem for businesses in the Philippines, particularly those in financial services,” said Paul Lomax, co-founder of Bluedog. “The country has numerous small banks which are struggling with compliance and many thousands of outsourcing firms which need to reassure overseas customers.

“Our business model and the location of our centre in Manila allow us to offer the type of advanced cyber monitoring services which would otherwise be out of reach for many Asian businesses, or indeed for smaller firms in the West. By recruiting and training local staff, we are also helping the country to expand its skills base and build a home-grown cyber industry.”
