Philippine Telegraph and Telephone Corp. has teamed up with US-based Maxava to provide a high availability and disaster recovery solution for the Philippine market.
“Our partnership with Maxava solidifies our thrust to offer our clients with industry-leading business resiliency solutions especially now that companies have seen the importance of resilience and business continuity in the current Covid-19 crisis,” Ella Mae Ortega, PT&T’s IT Services business unit head said.

In the field of data and IT, O’Sullivan said Maxava is determined to offer Philippine companies the best of breed solutions for disaster recovery.”
