Our goal is to work in partnership with our customers to understand their environments and challenges so that we can provide the best-fit solution, enabling them to meet their strategic goals. Our “Security As A Service” and “Wireless As A Service” flexible Managed Service models provide a pro-active approach to management, support and maintenance of a customer’s security and WiFi environment. They are tailored to address our customer’s needs, whether we take on full responsibility of the day to day operations and management, or in partnership with the customer, operations and management is ‘shared’ between both organisations.

“Listening to our customers, their challenges and needs, has enabled us to tailor our solutions to meet and exceed their requirements” Matt Ashman, Co-Founder of Khipu Networks. “We have built a successful Managed Service suite of solutions which have benefited our customers significantly; improved efficiencies of the organisation where staff can now focus on strategic projects, improved response times for any changes to their environment, pro-active threat response and remediation, and huge cost savings”. We believe that Khipu Networks recognition by Gartner as a “notable vendor”, as well as our manufacturer partner of the year awards, re-confirms that we continue to deliver exceptional services in a constantly moving ‘network security’ and ‘WiFi’ industry”.
