Working with schools and universities to maintain cutting-edge network efficiency and security; so that students, lecturers and staff all benefit from fast applications, intuitive IT solutions and market-leading cyber security.

We understand that when compared to other enterprises, schools and universities are unique in many ways. They have their own set of IT challenges, and we have extensive experience in overcoming those. The importance of their role in shaping the minds of the next generation should not be underestimated and they require the very latest in network performance and security to help deliver the great leaders and innovators of tomorrow. This is where we step in.

We are accustomed to working with the complex IT networks that power schools, universities and research facilities, and we help to ensure the seamless interplay of the systems to ensure the best possible experience for students, researchers and staff. Our powerful monitoring tools allow IT teams to not only observe the performance of all applications, but also proactively identify and resolve end-user issues.

Both our self service and managed service offerings provide deep visibility across the network to ensure that everything is running quickly, smoothly and perhaps most importantly, securely.

Data breaches at school and universities are a common occurrence, and are quick to make the headlines. Student records are a top prize for potential hackers. We work closely with IT departments to implement market leading security solutions and services to ensure that all sensitive data is kept safe and secure and far from prying eyes.
