Air21 chooses Trend Micro for a stronger IT security system

Air21 benefits from spam-free emails, contributing to overall efficiency of day-to-day operations

MANILA, Philippines – Air21, the leader in nationwide shipment and delivery services, selected Trend Micro™ lnterScan Messaging Security Virtual Appliance (IMSVA) to power its IT system with anti-spamming software. This solution enables Air21 to experience ease in email processing without the unnecessary and unwanted email traffic, contributing to overall efficiency of day-to-day operations.

For the past 33 years, Air21 has been providing Filipinos with superior customer-driven quality service. Trusted by big companies such as those belonging to Top 1000 corporations in the country as well as key government agencies like the Commission on Elections and Department of Health, Air 21 ensures time-definite, completely reliable, efficient and innovative pick-up, delivery and logistics services.

Theresita Eisma, the Chief Information Officer of Air21 narrates, "For a logistics company like Air21 which capitalizes on speed and reliability, we have to ensure that our systems are always operational when we need them. Technology is the backbone of our operations and we cannot afford to experience frequent downtimes and system glitches that may hamper our operations. We treat each and every package of utmost priority so we have to ensure that all of them are tracked and traced from the moment the shipment is handed to us until it makes its journey to the destination."

While Air21 heavily invested in technology for the last six years, it was only two years ago that the company decided to implement solutions focusing more on security. Despite the data protection and firewalls that were set up, Air21 still experienced cases of overflowing of unwanted emails or spam emails.

This is when software giant and leading pioneer in security and threat management Trend Micro entered into Air 21’s system. The installation of IMSVA covers all of Air21's 1,000 endpoints affecting over 2,000 employees. With the IMSVA software in place, these employees are able to go about their email processing easier without the unnecessary and unwanted email traffic. This Trend Micro solution for Air21 protects its email system which, so far, has been glitch-free.

Eisma shared, “Being an IT person myself, I am aware that it usually it takes 2-3 weeks installation time for such a complicated system. However, Trend Micro was able to migrate us to their new system in just 3 days.”

Myla Pilao, Trend Micro Core Technology Marketing Director said, “At Trend Micro, we fully understand that more and more businesses today put paramount value on security as they start to invest in cloud technology. In response, we have consistently provided above-market, scalable and effective security solutions so that top organizations in the country like Air21 can strengthen their IT infrastructure and continue to deliver value to their customers.”
