iPepper Virtual Network (IPV) continues to expand its business solutions by partnering with Israeli cyber security firm CyberInt. IPV recognizes that no business is safe from cyber threats. From stealing data, to defacing online assets, to the installation of malware on personal computers, companies of all types and sizes need to take both reactive and proactive measures to keep themselves protected.
During a press launch last May 3, CyberInt CEO Amir Ofek said, “The Asia Pacific market, specifically the Philippines, is considered a strategic market for the entry of CyberInt. With the rise of cyber crime in the Philippines that leverages on the strong social media activity in the country, we see a great need for cyber protection beyond the perimeter of organizations based there.”
IPV Network CEO Miguel Ramos first learned about CyberInt during a business trip to Tel Aviv, Israel in 2015. He met with Ofek and have come to an agreement that the Philippines is indeed a viable market for world-class cyber security.
CyberInt is a leading international cyber security firm that offers cutting-edge cyber security solutions. As the head cyber consultant to the Bank of Israel, CyberInt is the only company of its kind that offers a holistic approach to protection beyond the perimeter.
According to Elad Ben-Meir, CyberInt VP for marketing, the Philippines ranks third in social media scams and seventh in ransomware attacks for the Asia Pacific Region. Add to that is the minimal number of certified information systems security professionals (CISSPs) in the country, currently at 84 compared to Japan, Singapore, and Australia’s 1,000 each and the United States’s 67,000.

Afek added, “Implementing the right cyber risk strategy, we will ensure that organizations are vigilant when the next cyber attack arrives, and we will be proactive about their cybersecurity planning. We are also partnering with IPV Network to help promote cyber protection beyond the perimeter to other organizations across the Philippines.”
By looking beyond the perimeter and providing constant vigilance of cyber activities, CyberInt eliminates potential threats before they become crises. Their expertise in cyber intelligence and protection of online activities defends companies of all sizes and industries. Looking at your business from an attacker’s perspective, CyberInt thinks like hackers and understands how they behave. Enabling a comprehensive understanding of what needs to be monitored and safeguarded.
CyberInt can help you in three ways:
- Threat intelligence: Real-time, actionable and targeted intelligence that allows you to stay a step ahead of online attackers.
- Monitoring of online activity: Protection that goes beyond the perimeter, keeping your company’s assets safe from malware, phishing, unauthorized content and general brand abuse.
- Automated red team activities: Orchestrated digital attacks on a company, designed to reveal the business’ cyber security weak points for improvement and fortification.
Ramos said, “We (IPV Network) are looking forward to partnering with Cyberint to help Philippine companies and organizations provide the highest level of cybersecurity for their operations. As the digital and analog world converges, the internet becomes a much bigger part of our everyday lives. This brings increased cyber risk to Philippine companies and their customers thus the demand for best in class solutions to protect the integrity of a companies operations and data”
The companies that would benefit most from CyberInt would be those in the financial industry, such as banks and accounting firms, gaming industry, ecommerce players, and key utilities companies. It’s important to note that any company with digital assets and sensitive information is prone to online attacks and must take both precautionary and preventive measures to keep them safe.
