We are on a mission to accelerate higher education’s digital transformation.

Attacks on the education sector have increased dramatically over recent years with on-premise IT infrastructure once considered security best practise now compromised on a frequent basis. Security requirements are never more critical to maintain services and mitigate attacks often requiring additional support and IT knowledge to support a growing hybrid IT infrastructure.

We deploy information management and security tools to easily integrate the cloud as a seamless and secure extension of your on-premises and legacy environments.


On premise and hybrid solutions

SafeGuard is a packaged service designed to mitigate cyber threats by addressing the ever-changing demands placed on your infrastructure and resources. If responding to an existing threat or proactively increasing your data protection, we can provide end-to-end assistance in the solutions needed to secure, back-up, and restore your key systems. SafeGuard includes the use of the world leading Cloud provider for education organisations Amazon Web Services (AWS). This is partly due to their flexible, wide range and low-cost security solutions.


SafeGuard is ideal for institutions that require:

  • Back-up of valuable data to the Cloud
  • Assistance on creating a secure AWS ‘landing zone’
  • The functionality of leading backup tools such as Rubrik or Veeam to ensure AWS is configured appropriately
  • Management of AWS costs
  • Monitoring, analytics, and management of AWS infrastructure
  • Disaster recovery processes and orchestration
  • Immutable backups to protect from cybersecurity/ransomware attacks
