Safety & Security Solutions
We’ve optimised these services specifically for schools here in Aotearoa, so you’re getting the best tech available to help protect ākonga online. We make sure they continue to protect against evolving online threats – meaning it’s one less thing for schools to worry about.
To protect schools from the increasing number of cyber threats, we’ve rolled 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. You can also check out our FAQs.

Manage network users with Secure Access
With Secure Access, you’re able to control access to your school network, manage how different groups of students, teachers and guests access the network, and what they’ll be able to do when they’re on it. This means your school networks will be less vulnerable to security breaches and online threats. It’s the third phase of the Wi-Fi upgrade, which is currently being rolled out to schools across Aotearoa. Learn more about Secure Access here.
Remote Access for teachers and staff
With Remote Access your teachers and staff have a secure way of accessing your school’s onsite network regardless of where they are. This means they can work anytime, from anywhere. It also aligns with the Ministry of Education’s security guidelines for remote access.
Mail Relay for group communication
This enables you to securely send large volumes of external emails to keep in touch with whānau and the school community. Our Mail Relay will securely check all outbound emails are free from spam and viruses before sending them on their way.

This includes a range of gambling and adult sites, plus sites known to host malware and phishing scams. Click here to learn more and download the filter.
