If it is red it must be Watchguard! And this red security box gave away millions yesterday.
Watchguard is a leading US Network Security solutions company that has strong presence in the Philippines. It is primarily distributed via Lamco International and other local distribution companies.
Yesterday, Watchguard in partnership with Lamco International and iPlus Intelligent Network, Inc. donated PhP4 Million worth of network security products to selected schools in the Philippines.
In an exclusive media briefing held in Makati City, Philippines, Watchguard VP for International Sales Terry Haas personally turned over Firebox X55e-w firewall to the recipients. The Firebox X55e-W is an entry level firewall that can handle 10 – 15 users; and it is the wireless version. The box retails at about PhP50,000.00 according the representative of iPlus.
The schools in Metro Manila get the first batch of the donations which includes De Lasalle Univeristy, San Beda College, Technological University Of The Philippines, University of the East and University of Makati among others.
