Welcome to the latest edition of the In Brief blog. We’re here to bring you all the latest information and updates from the N4L team.

On the 2 July we celebrated our 10th anniversary! Over this time 100% of eligible schools and kura have been connected to the internet through our Managed Network. We now connect, protect and support over 840,000 ākonga and kaiako which couldn’t have been achieved without the passion of everyone involved including our wonderful kura. We can’t wait to see what the next 10 years brings. Read all about it on the new webpage here.

If you haven’t already heard, we’ve started to roll out our new Email Protection solution that will offer you a greater level of security against cyber threats. Fully funded by the Ministry of Education, this solution provides a greater level of protection from spam and phishing attacks. To find out more read below.

And lastly, thank you to everyone who took the time to complete our Touchpoint survey. We really appreciate the time you’ve taken to provide feedback. Congratulations to the 10 winning schools who will be receiving a $500 prezzy card each! Your School Relationship Manager will be in touch if they haven’t been already.
