In pursuit of true excellence – both in world-class products and unmatched service to its customers

It was in 2007 that GanoiTouch Philippines, Inc., the authorized exclusive distributor of Gano Excel products in the country, was established. Thus far, its objective of achieving true excellence—both in world-class products and unmatched service to its thousands of customers provided by the company’s leaders—is well on track.

The Chief Operating Officer of GanoiTouch Philippines, Inc., said that for the past 5 years, the company was relentless in pursuing excellence not just in the executive level and within the rank-and-file,but also distributors, leaders & product outlets.

“We believe that excellence is about meeting the standards of quality performance and continuously exceeding and surpassing them. There is no second-guessing here when it comes to our mantra of excellence, and the people of GanoiTouch Philippines know that,” explains COO Leo Esteves.

In order to achieve true excellence, GanoiTouch Philippines provides continuous training at all levels, from the new recruits up to the leaders, and even conducts training for personnel of official product outlets. He said that the strategy is to make all GanoiTouch empowered and independent as well.

Esteves further notes that regular training will hopefully motivate the employees and the distributorsto work hard in order to succeed. “Regular feedback on their performance is also a must so we could monitor their success orassess and even assist them on key performance areas where they need improvement.”

The past 5 years for GanoiTouch has also been a true test of the company’s stability. It also helped that the parent company, Gano Excel, is a hallmark of stability, which contributed in portraying GanoiTouch’s stature in the Philippine market as a solid and stable organization that Filipinos can rely upon in building not only their financialgoals but also mental and physical health through its superior ganodermalucidum-based products.

Gano Excel, based in Malaysia, plants, manufactures, markets and distributes its wide range of products made ofganodermalucidum, a type of red mushroom touted to be better than ginseng, as its main component. At present, Gano Excel products are available in 65 countries, including the US, Canada and most parts of Europe and of course, the Philippines.

Despite its success during the past 5 years, Esteves claims that challenges for the business remain. The fact that the company operates its business under a “multi-level marketing or MLM” strategy, commonly known as “networking,” remains one of them. However, he is not a bit worried.

“GanoiTouch’s networking business is absolutely legitimate, fair and sustainable. We have never been complained about because we provide real and effective products that are proven around the world, and that’s a fact. In fact, I can see the company’s continued growth and become one of the top networking companies in the country,” he said.

He said that there is no other direction for the company but to grow. “Gano Excel is continuously expanding its plantation of ganoderma and upgrading its manufacturing facilities in order to manufacture more products and make them world class yet affordable.”

Among its most popular products among Filipinos are the PIOIR Coffee and Chocolate, the Tongkat Ali, Ganoderma and Excellium. He even hinted that Gano Excel is currently testing possible additions to its product lineup but declined to specify.

For the Philippines, Esteves also confirmed that sustainability plans are already in place, specifically in relation to company and brand visibility in other areas. “We have to make sure that we are actively present in all major areas in the country, yet we will make sure that our inventory will be able to meet consumers’ and distributors’ demands and expectations.”

Succeeding in the business is already in the horizon, according to Esteves, and counts on 3 factors—world-class quality products, a stable and successful global company that’s built to last and finally, a legitimate and fair business that’s sustainable for life.

And to honor their most exemplary performers that contributed to the success of the company during their 5th anniversary, GanoiTouch Philippines, Inc. is throwing a glitzy and glamorous bash entitled “In Pursuit of True ‘Excel-lence: Faster, Higher, Stronger.” This 5th year celebration of GanoiTouch Philippines, Inc. will be held this coming March 23, 2013, 1 p.m., at the Aliw Theater located at the CCP Complex, Vicente Sotto Street, Pasay City.

To make things even more exciting, a brand new Toyota Innova is up for grabs during the anniversary raffle.

“This grand anniversary celebration is our way of saluting the leaders of GanoiTouch Philippines, Inc. for helping develop excellence not only in mind, body and soul, but also in health and in wealth. Our goal to enrich people’s lives and provide hope and economic stability through better health as provided by our superior products and legitimate income opportunity will definitely remain for the years to come,” explains Esteves.

Trend Micro Deep Discovery Protects South Korean Customers From Attack Crippling attacks on banks and media thwarted by advanced threat protection of Trend Micro Custom Defense

[Manila, Philippines March 22, 2013] — Trend Micro Incorporated announced today that customers using its Deep Discovery advanced threat protection product were able to discover and react to the recent cyber-attack before damage could be done. These attacks paralyzed several major banking and media companies, leaving many South Koreans unable to withdraw money from ATMs and news broadcasting crews cut off from their resources.

Deep Discovery network detection and custom sandbox analysis were able to detect the spear phishing email, identify the malware it contained, and discover the external command-and-control sites that the attackers used. With this actionable intelligence in hand, customers were able to immediately stop or remedy any effect and to block all malicious communication sources. This detection and swift response saved Deep Discovery customers from an attack that appears aimed to disrupt normal business processing by disabling critical endpoints and resources.

Cyber-attacks have been a fact of life for some time in South Korea and many enterprise and government agencies have implemented proactive threat detection and response measures. Trend Micro is a leading provider of these security intelligence solutions and services, with three of the six top banks and over 80 government agencies using Deep Discovery to protect themselves from such attacks.

Anatomy of the Attack
According to reports, several computer screens at major South Korean banks and three top TV companies went blank on Wednesday (local time), March 20, 2013. Some screens were even showing an image of a skull and a warning from the “WhoIs” team.

This attack is one of several independent, concurrent attacks plaguing South Korea. Trend Micro research has shown that this is the result of a malware attack that began with the delivery of a spear phishing email spoofed to look like a credit card history for the month of March. The malware attached to these phishing emails that brought these systems down overwrites the Master Boot Record (MBR), and was set to run on March 20 2013. If the malware was installed before March 20, it remains dormant and activates only on this day. Once it runs, it completely cripples the system usually requiring it be rebuilt. Wiping the MBR in this fashion can sometimes be the last step in a targeted attack meant to make investigation and recovery of these systems more difficult. Trend Micro research has shown that attackers targeted for destruction not only systems running Microsoft Windows but also those running Linux, IBM AIX, Oracle Solaris and Hewlett-Packard HP-UX versions of UNIX.

Deep Discovery customers concerned they may also be targets of this attack can examine their Deep Discovery logs for instances of “HEUR_NAMETRICK.B.”

Deep Discovery and Trend Micro Custom Defense
Trend Micro Deep Discovery provides the custom detection, intelligence and response capabilities to protect customers from targeted attacks and Advanced Persistent Threads (APTs). Its detection engines and custom sandboxing identify and analyze malware, malicious communications and attacker behavior invisible to standard security solutions.

Deep Discovery enables a full Detect – Analyze – Adapt – Respond lifecycle to these attacks, augmenting and integrating with existing security investments to create a full Custom Defense solution tailored to the specific environment of the customer. Deep Discovery integration and security update sharing with network, gateway and endpoint security improve protection and defense against attack at all points. And Deep Discovery custom threat intelligence and security event analysis enable the rapid containment and remediation of an attack.
