The Department of Information and Communication Technology said it is confident in the capabilities of the ICS-Verint joint venture. 

"They (Verint) are experts in cyberintelligence, threat monitoring. And also ICS has 30 years experience in IT," said DICT Assistant Secretary Allan Cabanlong in an interview with ANC's Future Perfect.
