Cyclone shakes up NZ education sector with Google deal

New Zealand ICT firm appointed as the country’s only Google for Education Partner - Premier, continuing the company’s strong work with the sector.

New Zealand ICT firm Cyclone has been appointed as the country’s only Google for Education Partner - Premier, continuing the company’s strong work with the sector.

Seen as a “great acknowledgement” from the tech giant for the planning, support, professional development and education support in the New Zealand education sector, the deal is an extension of Cyclone’s ‘seven steps to success’ initiative in classrooms nationwide.

“There are some great tools that surround the platform,” says Graham Prentice, General Manager, Apple Div / AoG, Cyclone.

“They are well designed for the teacher workflow so it makes a lot of sense for the education sector, plus they are well priced for their capabilities.”

For Prentice, this is where the future lies, “across the vendors and the third party products around them.”

“We have specialised in the professional developments and working closely with teachers both in schools and via remote hang outs,” he adds.

In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
