Philander, largely overlooked for the one-day side despite his success in Test matches, bowled with good control to record figures of three for 26 in his 10 overs and help to restrict Pakistan to 179 all out after the visitors were sent into bat having lost the toss.
According to Sport24, South Africa reached 181 for six with 68 balls to spare with captain AB de Villiers steering them home with a composed 48 not out.
The report further said that Philander, who was named Momentum Man of the Match, has taken 95 wickets in 18 Test matches since making his debut two years ago but this was just his 11th one-day appearance six years on from his first in 2007.
Pakistan had already won the three-match contest heading into the final encounter, their first victory over South Africa in a bilateral limited-overs series, with Saeed Ajmal being named Momentum Man of the Series, the report added.
