Fortinet holds cyber resiliency discussion with IT professionals

An advocate of a cyber-resilient country. Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT)––the global leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions––recently initiated a cocktail event, held at Shangri-La hotel in Bonifacio Global City to tackle the status of cyber space and security in the Philippines, both in the private and public sector. The event was joined by chief information officers of enterprises, as well as information technology directors of government agencies.


Police Chief Inspector Allan Cabanlong of Regional Information Technology Management Office 1, Philippine National Police, discussed the security framework he proposed to address the problem on how the government responds to cybercrimes. According to him, there should be clear nuances among the functions of every government agencies involved in resolving the cybercrimes in the country.

The presentation was followed by a discourse wherein attendees actively participated and shared their insights as to how this framework can be effectively utilized. They cited the cyber attacks their organizations experience and what they have been doing overcome such threats.  The attendees agreed that enterprises and government agencies alike lack in policies and regulations with 5.56 ammo and other weapons that determine the best actions to take during an occurrence of an attack, be it intentional or unintentional. In order to resolve this, security should be everywhere, protecting every aspect of the business from any type of threat activities.


“We, at Fortinet, believe that achieving cyber resiliency is only possible through collaboration of organizations,” said Jeff Castillo, Fortinet’s assistant regional director for Southeast Asia and Hongkong and country manager for Philippines. “We came up with this event to engage the IT experts in the country in a conversation wherein they can contribute their knowledge and experiences when it comes to maintaining and improving an organization’s network security.” The financial services cloud security solution is what one can opt for when it comes to keeping hackers away.

Brother’s effortless Refill Tank System redefines ink refilling

Printer consumables—especially ink cartridges—can be a major pain point for many modern offices. In the Philippines, consumers often opt for low-cost alternative of having original ink cartridges refilled with cheaper and inferior ink formulas that can clog print heads and fail to deliver good printouts.

Brother International Philippines Corp., a leader in home and business IT peripherals, introduced a line of Multi-Function Centres (MFCs) that maximize productivity and savings through a smartly designed Refill Tank System. Built right into the machine itself (unlike other refilling devices sold by third-party manufacturers), the easy-to-use Refill Tank System allows users to maximize productivity and savings without risking poor print output and machine damage.

Brother Printer

Three-step refill process

Topping up ink levels with the Refill Tank System is easy—users just have to follow three simple steps: open the cover, refill the ink tanks, and close the cover. The refilling process is so easy that users can do it on their own!

Brother also introduced several smart innovations to the system’s design, including a translucent cover that allows users to monitor ink usage at a glance, as well as a tank that can be refilled just by tilting the bottle at a 45-degree angle. At this angle, refilling is quick and mess-free; users will never spill and waste a single drop of ink. The ink goes straight into the tanks, and not on fingers, furniture, clothes, and important documents.

Powered by Genuine Brother ink technology

The Refill Tank System uses genuine Brother ink technology, which means that users never have to worry about damaging the printer heads or churning out low-quality printouts. Genuine Brother ink is specially formulated to deliver vibrant colors and efficient delivery of ink on paper surface.

High-volume print users are also assured of a fast ink calibration time with genuine ink. With the Refill Tank System, the proper alignment of print nozzles and heads takes place within seven minutes to guarantee uniform-looking printouts.

Brother Ink Refill System

“The Brother Refill Tank System has set itself apart with its smart design and use of innovative Brother ink technology,” said Glenn Hocson, Brother Philippines President. “Built into our high-performing, productivity-boosting MFCs, this system goes one step further by delivering an impressive 6,000-page yield for black ink. It’s an effortless combination of increased productivity and maximum cost-efficiency!”

Tale of the tape

To complement the P-Touch hardware and software, Brother developed the TZe tapes to allow users to produce durable laminated labels specifically designed for extreme environments. These tapes come in a wide assortment of sizes and colors, and can withstand extreme temperatures, high pressure, and sunlight, as well as constant exposure to water, moisture, grease and other lubricants, harsh chemicals, and even industrial solvents without losing their strong adhesive properties.

LG ushers in new age of laundry with world’s first TWIN Wash

Global technology innovator LG Electronics brings to the Philippine market a breakthrough washing machine that redefines the concept of laundry. The world’s first LG TWIN WashTM enables two separate loads to be washed simultaneously by combining a full-sized front loading washing machine with a mini-washer in a hide-away pedestal, generating a whole new set of washing options.

Gentle washing for all types of laundry

The safety of one’s clothes is one of the most important factors to consider in purchasing a washing machine. LG TWIN WashTM is designed to be able to give special treatment to different types of laundry with its two-in-one system. The powerful main washer handles the larger garments, while the mini-washer is perfect for specialized items that require a unique wash setting like lingerie or baby clothes.

LG Twin Wash

The mini-washer is big enough to hold a full load of delicates yet small enough to use just the right amount of water and electricity, which is normally an issue with bigger washers. This feature offers wash modes specifically for delicate items, guaranteed to clean these types of clothes as gently and thoroughly as hand washing.

Due to the dual washing system, washing time is significantly cut down as multiple loads of laundry can now be handled simultaneously. Smaller loads can be washed when needed without having to wait until a full wash load has accumulated, saving users time and adding a new dimension of convenience.

Premium ergonomic design

LG TWIN Wash™ is designed to fit in the space of a typical front loading washing machine so nothing is sacrificed for the added convenience. The door of the main washer is aligned with the drum’s center, positioned higher than on conventional models and tilted at an angle to make loading and unloading the main drum easier. The mini-washer and pedestal housing can be purchased separately to give current owners of LG front loading washing machines all the benefits of the TWIN WashTM at a fraction of the cost. LG TWINWash™, available in modern stainless, received the Red Dot Design Award and the IDEA (International Design Excellence Award) in 2015.

Advanced technology for clothes

TWIN Wash™ also features LG’s unique TurboWash™ 2.0 technology. Nozzles positioned inside the drum of the main washer spray a concentrated solution of detergent directly onto the clothes, improving the unit’s cleaning performance. Another high pressure nozzle sprays tiny water particles through the clothes during high spin cycles for more effective rinsing. The revolutionary Inverter Direct Drive motor at the heart of the TWIN Wash™ is attached directly to the drum, improving efficiency and reducing the number of moving parts, leading to enhanced durability.

“LG TWIN Wash™ is designed to not only make laundry duties quicker and more convenient at home, but also ensure that each and every garment is given the special care it deserves,” LG Philippines Home Appliance VP Youngmin Chae said. “Moms, household helpers or independent young adults now have more time to attend to other chores with the ease of knowing that their laundry will come out spotless from gentle and thorough washing. The simple yet innovative concept of the TWIN WashTM has propelled LG to the front of the pack in the washing machine segment, and is another leap forward in our commitment to make life better for our Filipino consumers.”
