University of Witwatersrand, South Africa – 18th October, 2018 – ASAUDIT, the Association of South African University Directors of Information Technology, today announce at their Spring General Meeting that a new discounted price framework will shortly be available to the South African Higher Education sector.

KHIPU’s next-generation email security solutions, based upon Proofpoint’s technology portfolio, protect people, data, and brands from advanced threats and compliance risks. Through a cloud-based platform built for the way people work today, our solutions will:

  • Gain complete visibility of email attacks on-premise and in the cloud (including Office 365)
  • Protect people from the advanced attacks that target them via email, mobile apps, and social media
  • Protect the information people create from advanced attacks and compliance violations
  • Equip people to respond quickly when things go wrong

The framework, negotiated by ASAUDIT, will enable South African Higher Education institutions to invest into a proven next-generation email platform that protects and prevents cyberattacks whilst enabling them to meet strategic initiatives for digital transformation such as the move to the cloud.
