On October 18th, during the Third Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing, Sangfor Technologies and the Newborn Screening Reference Center in the Philippines came together to sign a crucial agreement. This agreement paves the way for a nationwide distributed private cloud project.
Sangfor Technologies, with over six years of market presence in the Philippines, has been actively involved in improving the country's IT infrastructure, particularly in cybersecurity and cloud computing. This involvement has played a pivotal role in supporting the digital transformation of various industries.
The Newborn Screening Reference Center, a renowned medical research institution in the Philippines, has been dealing with operational challenges in its IT infrastructure. These include frequent service disruptions, slow data processing, and difficulties in maintaining and upgrading their systems. This partnership aims to solve these issues, providing better healthcare services, especially for newborns.
