With this, ePLDT brings customers a safe and more secure internet experience for residential, mobile, and corporate users of DNS security.

“Today’s cybercriminals and the threats they pose are ever growing in size. They have hundreds of ways to compromise DNS servers and it could lead to loss of personal information of users and mission-critical data of companies. We at ePLDT are committed to delivering groundbreaking and innovative digital solutions to our customers, while ensuring their security and protection online,” says Nerisse Ramos, ePLDT Group Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.

Considered as the phonebook of the internet, the DNS (domain name system) matches web addresses into browsers with an IP address in order to for them to land on the correct website. This particular function is oftentimes the reason why DNS is prone to attacks by cybercriminals, redirecting users to malicious websites.

To protect end-users of the PLDT Group, Smart, Sun Cellular, and ePLDT collaborated with Secure64, a leading provider of genuinely secure DNS solutions that are purpose-built to be highly secure, self-protecting, and immune to malware.

“This newly adopted DNS infrastructure greatly complements our existing cybersecurity portfolio and bolsters ePLDT’s Security Operations Center (SOC) capabilities in monitoring and responding to threat intelligence. This, in turn, will allow our PLDT and ePLDT Secure DNS Infrastructure subscribers to enjoy a more secure internet experience from end to end,” said First Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer of ePLDT Group, PLDT Group, and SMART Angel Redoble.
“Every day, over 650 million subscribers around the world rely on Secure64 technology to process billions of DNS queries in an exceedingly secure, reliable, and performant manner.
