Through the upbeat consumer campaign, the digital financial services leader unveils an enhanced PayMaya mobile app, exciting new features, and more compelling merchant partner promos, as well as the best cashback promos and discounts for an overall more rewarding experience for all users. 
PayMaya’s new brand campaign features a catchy jingle with lyrics promoting the best perks of going cashless, set against the tune of the song “Ligaya” popularized by the iconic OPM band Eraserheads. Through the campaign, PayMaya encourages all Filipinos to get more joy and value out of daily transactions by opting to use PayMaya instead of cash for all their payments needs.  

The “Don’t Pay Cash. PayMaya!” launch was attended by PayMaya’s official mascots, Maya, who danced to PayMaya’s newly launched jingle to the tune of the iconic Eraserheads anthem “Ligaya.”

“PayMaya is undoubtedly the best way to pay in the Philippines today. Our formula is simple – make digital payments accessible, more convenient, more secure, more rewarding, and more fun. With a newer and smoother app experience, the biggest discounts and cashback promos, and an ever-growing network of merchant and add money partners, it’s now better to ‘PayMaya’ instead of paying with cash,” said Paolo Azzola, Chief Operating Officer and Managing Director of PayMaya. 
Better than cash rewards  
PayMaya is taking the lead in unlocking the multiple rewards and benefits of going cashless. With the pre-holiday and e-Commerce sales just around the corner, using a PayMaya account for everyday transactions is the best way to get the best discounts and cashback for all your purchases. 

Cashless convenience, just a click away: Attendees of the event experienced firsthand the cashless convenience featured in the “Don’t Pay Cash. PayMaya!” campaign launch with seamless payments via PayMaya QR available at the Eattogether Food Hall in Capitol Commons, the first cashless food hall in the country powered by PayMaya.
Just for September alone, PayMaya users can get as much as P5,000 in cashback from the various promos rolled out by the brand. All one has to do is use the PayMaya app for prepaid load and gaming pins, bills payments, sending money, PayMaya QR transactions with partner merchants, and online shopping.  
Even getting a PayMaya account gets more rewarding as PayMaya is giving as much as P200 just by registering with a referral code and upgrading their account.    
“We’re just getting started and this will get more exciting as we gear up towards the holiday shopping season. Our goal is to make every Filipinos embrace digital payments by multiplying the benefits of going cashless,” said Azzola. 
Better than cash experience  
To usher in a next-level experience, PayMaya has updated the mobile app to make it easier and safer to use.  
The most popular services such as Sending Money, Buying Load, or Sharing Treats are now easily accessible with just one tap at the home screen of the app. Under the PayMaya Shop, one can also find more variants for digital goods such as telco load, gaming PINs, and treats vouchers – with the best discounts through promos.  
Funding one’s PayMaya account is also easier–users can add money from your bank account through InstaPay or by linking their credit* or debit card. 
PayMaya places high importance in security. All PayMaya users are encouraged to upgrade their accounts not only for higher transaction limits but also for safer transactions. To facilitate this, PayMaya has introduced a simpler and faster Upgrade process featuring selfie and AI technology. PayMaya also recently unveiled a sexier and safer black card design with the card number and other sensitive information at the back, instead of being displayed at the front. 

Better than cash: Influencer Ashley Chan shows off her PayMaya card which sports a new, sleek design, as well as an added layer of security for instagram-savvy Pinoys. With her PayMaya in hand, she can easily hop on the cashless lifestyle and unlock awesome rewards! 
The new app design, initially available to Android users and also soon for iOS devices, prominently features the latest promos and perks that account holders can take advantage of, so that they can easily discover ways to make the most of their money with PayMaya. 
“Expect more features and services to roll out in the coming months. Our goal is to make the payments experience of every Filipino hassle-free and more secure,” explained Azzola. 
Don’t pay cash. PayMaya!  
With all these brand-new features and exciting new promos for users, PayMaya’s “Don’t Pay Cash. PayMaya!” campaign targets to accelerate digital payments adoption in the Philippines. This is in support of the National Financial Inclusion goals of the country and the aim to increase digital transactions in the country to 20% by 2020 under the National Retail Payment System (NRPS).

Eastern Communications launch localized cloud services + cyber defense, strengthening efficiency and security for local entities

Cloud storage and cyber security interest from companies are growing, but more importantly Eastern Communications, one of the country’s pioneering tech industries, is localizing that option. Let us find out how companies can greatly benefit from having a localized tech cloud service and including security for all your storage and data computing needs.

Fostering business efficiencies and security, Eastern Communications, one of the premier telecommunications companies in the country, introduces its newly upgraded and most advanced products and services in partnership with global allies DOSarrest and Cloud Sigma. 

According to the Global Connectivity Index (GCI), Philippines’ digital connectivity has improved from Starter to Adopter status and ranked 57 out of 79 countries in 2018. This is reportedly due to expanded smartphone and computer use, higher speed 4G coverage, and national planning with “cloud first policy” in government’s aim of reducing expenses through cloud technology. 

Connectivity plays a vital role in businesses today as it allows companies to adapt and have efficient operations. With the transformation emerging in the business environment, security threats arise, and flexibility becomes a challenge. 

Cost-effective business operations

Cloud service is starting to get recognized in the business landscape. It is a cost-effective method of storing and sharing company data and applications securely over the Internet instead of computer hard drive. 

Eastern Communications joined forces with international cloud service provider Cloud Sigma to launch its public cloud solutions providing the full spectrum of infrastructure and IT Services. Established in 2009 in Switzerland, CloudSigma has been providing a pure-cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) that enables the digital industrial economy through its enterprise-class hybrid cloud servers and cloud hosting solutions in Europe, the U.S., Asia, and Australia. 

Big companies can get the best of cloud service such us Public Cloud, one of the most customizable services available in the market, a type of computing in which a service provider makes resources available to the public via the internet and accessible by anyone who wants to pay for subscription or use it for free. 

Protecting enterprises from cyber threats

Cyber threat landscape is constantly changing. Local companies and even institutions have been victims of several data breaches and cyberattacks, affecting their business security and operations.  

Eastern Communications partners with Canada-based cybersecurity solutions provider DOSarrest in the aim of equipping Filipino companies with the right technology against cyber threats. DOSarrest was founded in 2007 and has been mitigating Distributed Denial of Service or DDoS attacks for a global customer base with its leading-edge cloud-based DDoS protection.

With this partnership, companies of all sizes can now secure their business from basic to the most sophisticated DDoS attacks. Eastern Communications has various cybersecurity solutions such as Web Application Firewall (WAF) that blocks any Layer 7 threat like cross-site forgery, cross-site scripting, among others; while Content Delivery Network (CDN) generates faster loading of a website, which saves companies money yet enhances website performance at the same time.  

“It’s always been Eastern Communications’ High-Tech promise to provide the best and right solutions especially to businesses that aim for utmost productivity and efficiency without compromising security. And through our partnership with reputable global firms in the industry like DOSarrest and CloudSigma, we’re looking forward to helping companies here in the country to elevate their business connectivity and harness the long-term benefits our services can offer,” shared Product and Innovation Head Edsel Paglinawan. 

Eastern Communications’ upgraded cloud services and cyber defense is now available in the market. For more information, visit

What SEA children are learning, taking interest from the internet

The internet, including the Philippines, is everywhere. A new study on Southeast ASian children reveals what minors prefer to watch on-line, and it is not exactly messaging or even adult content they are taking interest streaming. Let us know more from this interesting regioal study.

Children in Southeast Asia today use the internet increasingly for video and music entertainment as well as for software downloads, and lesser for online messaging. More kids in the region use the World Wide Web to watch their favorite TV series like Game of Thrones and movies like Avengers, according to the 2019 report from Kaspersky Safe Kids.

Based on the report’s 2018 and 2019 results, a double-digit growth in children using the internet for accessing software, audio, and video websites was observed in Indonesia (38.72% to 60.33%), the Philippines (25.41% to 49.12%), Singapore (25.03% to 42.32%), Thailand (11.28% to 37.23%), and Vietnam (27.11% to 50.14%). Only Malaysia scored a slight decrease from 60.08% to 51.15%. This category, however, remains the current top online interest among Malaysian kids.

The Software, audio, video category includes websites for downloading audio and video files: movies, recordings of sports events and concerts, music, music videos, video clips, audio and video learning materials, etc. Torrent trackers and file sharing services irrespective of physical location of files to which they provide access were also under this category.

“It is an accepted fact that our children are better internet navigators than us, adults. With their curiosity and quickness in grasping or even making their own online trends, it is undoubtedly important for parents to know their interests and habits. Our report showed videos, music, and software are increasingly becoming kids’ favorite activities, and we are fully aware that such sites are plagued with malware, virus, and dangerous content. We hope these findings could help parents in understanding their kids better and in protecting them against the potential dangers in the digital world,” comments Yeo Siang Tiong, General Manager for Southeast Asia at Kaspersky. 

The increased interest in this category was also observed globally by Kaspersky. Overall number shows audio, video, and software sites are most popular in Africa, Asia, and in Arab nations. The decline in the use of PCs for online messaging, however, reflects the shift in children’s preference in using mobile devices over computers for messaging apps.

With the shift in their online interests, the top three internet activities for kids in SEA for 2019 are software, audio, and video websites; online messaging, and electronic commerce.

More young shoppers, lesser adult content visitors in SEA

The same report showed a trend of increasing young shoppers in Southeast Asia where the year-on-year comparison showed as much as 13% increase from January to July 2018 and 2019.

Singaporean kids led the pack tallying 18.82% compared with just 5.58% of children using the internet for e-commerce. The Philippines closely followed at 13.21% compared with 2.39% last year. Malaysia recorded an increase of over 8% (4.70% to 13.02%), while Indonesia and Thailand have 4.8% and 1.62% growths, respectively. Only Vietnam marked a slight decline from 1.03% to 1.02% of young shoppers online.

The Electronic commerce category includes websites for any electronic money transactions through special web applications. This covers online stores and auctions offering any goods and services to individuals or legal entities that support online payment as well as websites of stores that only operate via the Internet and online departments of regular stores.

Under this category, special web pages of public and private institutions or individuals that offer any paid services are included as well as special web pages of banks where online banking transactions can be performed. Websites of online payment systems that require a personal user account is also covered by this category.

Another noteworthy finding is the decrease in percentage of kids in the region who use the internet to access adult content. Most countries in the region showed lesser interest for pornography and related content this year. Malaysia posted a very minimal increase of only 0.09 in this category.

Asia, in general, also scored a decline from 2.72% to 2.26% yet its numbers remained quite high compared with other regions globally in terms of adult content interest among kids.

Statistics by region from the Kaspersky report shows that the largest share of visits to adult sites were from young users in Latin America (4.28%), South Asia (2.74%) and Asia.

“It is encouraging to see that fewer children are interested in online adult content in the region. We credit the steps being done by SEA governments to block easy access to such sites. However, the shift of interest towards online shopping should mark a closer guidance between kids and parents. The risks in e-commerce such as fake sellers, fake products, malware-infected sites, compromised payment gateways, and more, pose a real and costly danger against the family’s financial details. Parents, we urge you to pay attention to this,” adds Yeo.

Tips for modern parents

Kids are smart, but they are not fully aware of the threats online. To protect them from the dangers lurking in the internet, Kaspersky suggests the following:
Communicate – talk and serve as a mentor. You can teach your kids as to what is socially acceptable to do and what is not. You should also make your kids feel comfortable coming to you on those instances where they frankly were a kid, messed up and did something wrong.

Have the talk regularly – talk to your kids regularly about technology, even if it means you playing dumb and asking them to help you set up a Snapchat, Tumblr or Facebook account.

By showing your kids that you trust them as teachers, the more it builds up that mutual trust. You can also educate them to things that you are hearing or seeing in regards to cyberthreats or security breaches.

Set boundaries – make sure that they know what is acceptable and what is not. Also make them aware of the consequences of going somewhere that they shouldn’t or using tech when they shouldn’t be.

Educate yourself – be aware of your kids’ online interests and of the latest threats online. Remember that you cannot teach what you do not know.

Use the resources that are there for you – use the resources provided by some companies or organizations that can help guide you in raising your modern kid. 

There are also technologies out there like Kaspersky Safe Kids that allow parents to help serve as a secondary level of protection from unwanted creeps, dirty content or to even find a lost or stolen phone. This feature is included in Kaspersky solutions – like Kaspersky Internet Security, Kaspersky Total Security, and Kaspersky Security for Cloud.

Report Methodology

To be able to gather the statistics, Kaspersky Lab solutions scan the content of web pages that children try to access. If a particular site belongs to one of fourteen unwanted categories, the module sends a notification to the Kaspersky Security Network (there is no transfer of personal user data and no violation of privacy). 
It is important to note that:
Parents decide for themselves what content should be blocked and configure the application accordingly. However, anonymous statistics are collected across all fourteen categories.
Data is harvested only from computers running Windows and Mac OS; no mobile statistics are provided in this report.
