Fully funded Email Protection

To protect schools from the increasing number of cyber threats, we’re rolling out a new industry-leading Email Protection solution. Fully funded by the Ministry of Education, it gives eligible schools an enhanced level of email security and added peace of mind. Take a look at our FAQs.

“As a small school with no external IT support, N4L set up the new Ministry-funded email protection service on our behalf, making getting on board super easy. It’s great to have the peace of mind knowing that our school has this extra protection in place.”
