Ping reply says packet filtered-> what does it mean

I am trying to ping the server that belongs to different company and it says packet filtered, can someone help be understand why it says packet filtered ? is it due to firewall at my company network or is it due to firewall at abc-xyz network

ping webftp.abc-xyz.com
PING webftp.abc-xyz.com (12.149.7.22) 56(84) bytes of data.
From abc-xyz.customer.alter.net (157.130.57.12) icmp_seq=2 Packet filtered

It means that 157.130.57.12 is blocking your ping (ICMP) request and telling you that, so ping requests are not accepted by that host.

to me this seems like IPSEC is configured either at source or destination. This is generally the msgs with ESP/AH configuration in IPSEC.

Pls check
