A panel of eight IT suppliers will support Network for Learning (N4L) with its roll-out of "smarter and safer" internet services to New Zealand schools.

The panel members are: AIS Corporation, Cyclone Computers, Isometric Solutions, New Era IT, Norrcom, Smart Computer Systems, Schooled Up IT, and Telco Technology Services (TTS).

More panel members are expected to be added in coming months, N4L said today.

N4L began a programme of work to upgrade the government-funded Managed Network earlier this month, which is expected to be complete by October 2019.

The approved IT support companies have been selected based on their experience supporting schools, with many having already helped N4L connect schools to the Managed Network.

“We are excited to be partnering with highly-skilled technology companies which have a proven track-record of working successfully with schools, and we look forward to announcing more partners in due course,” said Larrie Moore, N4L chief executive.

The appointed IT support companies will be visiting every school to shift them to a new combined firewall and internet filtering system. 

N4L expects to upgrade around 260 schools every month, with a schools’ size, complexity, and location informing the rollout schedule.

In addition to enhanced protection against online threats and improved internet filtering tools, the Managed Network Upgrade will provide schools with smarter reporting tools, and an easier way for schools to get more bandwidth.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
