Continent 8 Technologies is an award-winning, multi-jurisdictional, global network solutions provider that connects, manages, and secures a company’s most valuable information. This year the company celebrates 25 years of reliable innovation, supporting customers’ operations and global growth since 1998 through cutting-edge technology.
The company powers some of the biggest brands in online gaming, as well as companies in the finance, payment processing and public services industries.
The global IT business offers a comprehensive suite of products and services covering three core areas:
Connect – the critical foundation for every online business is connectivity. From its network – which now spans more than 90 locations around the world – Continent 8 connects people and the wider industry to critical data.
Manage – Continent 8 takes on the burden of infrastructure management through holistic monitoring, management and alerting. Their global, trained and experienced team are on hand 24/7 to look after a company’s infrastructure and give them the peace of mind they need to concentrate on running and growing their business.
Secure – The company helps its partners defend critical infrastructure against a growing number of cyber threats. They take a defensive, in-depth approach to security which includes DDoS and WAF/WAAP protection, MDR/EDR services, plus proven 24/7 SOC resources. And to best protect customers from the ever-changing cybersecurity landscape, they offer bespoke and personalised services.
With data centres and points of presence in over 90 connected locations across 4 continents, the company connects Asia to the rest of the world over a high capacity fully redundant private network, with data centres and/or network points in Taiwan (Taipei), Hong Kong, Japan (Tokyo), Philippines (Manila), and Singapore.
As a customer-centric business and with a growing customer base in the APAC region, they are building a dedicated support team on the ground, bolstering the existing team which provides 24/7 support to customers. They have also increased their headcount recently appointing a Business Development Manager (Lalaine P. Vidal) and Technical Solutions Architect (Christopher Caturay) in the Philippines, to support the company’s Managing Director – Asia Pacific, Peter Williams.
Peter Williams explains: “Lalaine and Christopher are great talents and are a brilliant addition to the Continent 8 team in Asia. This is an important market for us and one where we have ambitious growth plans that we are actively deploying.
“Lalaine will play a vital role in introducing more businesses to Continent 8 and the award-winning solutions that we provide, while Christopher will ensure that customers are deploying the right products and services for their organisation. This localised approach and having feet on the ground is what makes Continent 8 the go-to infrastructure and security provider for companies targeting Asia and other markets around the world.”
The future is bright for the industry’s go-to infrastructure partner, as described by the company’s CEO and Founder, Michael Tobin at the recent ICE London exhibition:
In 2023, Continent 8 will continue its aggressive growth strategy. Expected to hit 100 locations, servicing newly regulated markets and providing connectivity to customers in strategic locations to support their global growth plans.
Meet the team at ASEAN Gaming Summit 2023, 21-23 March. Peter Williams, Craig Lusher, Lalaine Vidal, and Christopher Caturay will be in attendance, with Peter and Craig taking to the conference stage on Wednesday, 22 March at 11:20 AM PST, to present a session titled ‘Cyber security: Overlook at your own peril.’
