    Sky Fiber back-up plan for sigurista moms

    As schools are now compelled to provide education via the internet, hands-on mothers can rely on a back-up home broadband connection to ensure their children’s continuous access to online learning resources at home.

    When they subscribe to SKY Fiber AlterNet, they no longer have to stress out whenever their primary internet provider experiences abrupt glitches nor do they have to spend hours waiting for technical assistance. This means their children can go on with their Zoom classes as they stream via the plan’s unlimited internet connection.

    This postpaid back-up broadband plan is available for only P199 a month and it comes with a base speed of 1.5Mbps and a high-speed modem.

    If heavier tasks must be done such as downloading course materials, answering a timed quiz, and streaming high-definition videos, they can opt to increase their speed by topping-up 25Mbps, 50Mbps, or 100Mbps. They can choose between a five-day speed top-up for as low as P249 or a 15-day speed top-up for as low as P699.

    A Pinay mommy vlogger, Haidee Dacanay, can attest to the benefits of having a SKY Fiber AlterNet plan at home.

    “My daughter, Hazel, is a college student at U.P Diliman and she’s taking a tough course. As a parent, I’d do everything to support her education most especially during these tough times where she has no choice but to continue her studies at home. There are challenges with this set-up most especially when it comes to internet connection. Sometimes Hazel struggles to keep up with her Zoom lectures whenever our connection slows down. This is why I decided to subscribe to SKY Fiber AlterNet, to make her home study less stressful. Now that we have a back-up connection, we can go on with our daily online tasks without worrying,” said Haidee.

    With the peace of mind that the SKY Fiber AlterNet brings, it surely is a must-have in a productive school at home setup.

    Kaspersky offers solutions to educational institutions

    A solution that can help small and medium educational institutions is Kaspersky EDR Optimum. This newly launched tool enables organizations to implement the basic endpoint detection and response (EDR) scenarios, provides infrastructure visibility as well as incident investigation and response capabilities against basic to complex threats.

    “To help schools, we at Kaspersky offer solutions and cybersecurity training to empower teachers and school administrators in building their technical and behavioral defenses against these cybercriminals. We believe that with the right security tools in place and proper mindset, educational institutions can focus better on how they impart knowledge to their students during this unique situation,” Yeo Siang Tiong, General Manager for Southeast Asia at Kaspersky said.

    Understanding that schools and colleges may have a limited budget and workforce for IT security, this automated solution is easy to use, does not require a high level of user expertise, and requires much less attention and routine maintenance than you might expect from an EDR-class security solution.

    Currently, Kaspersky is offering discounts for educational institutions in SEA for Kaspersky EDR Optimum on 10-999 nodes until December 2020.

    • 1 year Base, Crossgrade: 30% Discount
    • 3 year Base, Crossgrade: 50% Discount
    • Add-On option for 1 & 3 year: 50% Discount
