Enhanced Support Services
Maintain. Monitor. Manage. Relax.
Flexible and enhanced support and managed services to meet any requirement.
Always Available Support
As a result of the changes in how many of us now work, the reliance on experienced, certified and readily available technical and cyber security support is at an all-time high.
With reduced staff numbers and limited funds available, many of our customers are under pressure to deliver new strategic projects whilst at the same time, ensure that their infrastructures are available and secure at all times.
This has resulted in a huge increase for ‘always available’ support and managed services that help customers focus on project delivery, rather than be consumed by day to day business as usual tasks, unforeseeable problems and cyber breaches.
New Demands, New Services
To meet this rise in new demand, we have enhanced our support and security services to meet all customer requirements. We have also renamed our offerings, so it’s easier to understand what they actually provide:
- Monitor (KARMA™)
All services are operated from 0ur 24x7x365 staffed Network Operations Centre (NOC) and Security Operations Centre (SOC) ensuring support availability at all times.
For customers who require a standard level of service, we can provide ‘break-fix’ support contracts for any technology vendor. This service enables customers to have a single point of contact for all hardware and software related problems removing the issues associated with multiple support contracts and help desks.
We’ve extended our standard hours of operation to 08:00 to 18:00 with a wide range of services available to meet different customer requirements.
For customers with valid 09:00 to 17:00 break-fix contracts in place, they will be upgraded at no cost, to 08:00 to 18:00. This additional coverage will not only help with support, it can also assist with ‘out of hours’ hardware replacements without incurring additional costs. Existing customers also get access to our loyalty discount program to upgrade to our Monitor and Manage service offerings.
Monitor and Maintain
Our KARMA™ Security and Network Operations Centres (SOC / NOC) proactively monitor your infrastructure and security posture, to provide immediate identification of problems either before or as they occur, allowing quick alerting, action and resolution.
The service has been developed to ensure optimal service availability and can monitor and secure your entire infrastructure. It can also be used as a network management system.
With immediate identification of service affecting issues and security breaches, our engineers alert your teams 24×7 by phone, email and SMS, and provide the necessary support proactively (rather than wait for you to log a call).
Proactive Support, Not Reactive
- Monitor the availability and security of your entire IT environment; LAN, WiFi, Next-Gen Firewalls, RADIUS, WANs, UPS power supplies, IoT, servers, service / application performance, websites and much more.
- Customisable ‘simple to use’ dashboards: health views and network maps.
- A mobile “App” for uptime network monitoring and alerting.
- Reporting to analyse monitoring and uptime over a specified time period.

For customers who are looking for a flexible managed service, we can provide a tailored offering to meet any requirement.
Whether we take on full responsibility of the day to day operations and management of your network, wifi and/or cyber security infrastructure, or in partnership with the customer, all tasks are ‘shared’ between both organisations, we have reduced costs, streamlined operations and improved efficiencies so that strategic projects and initiatives can be delivered.

KHIPU has been supporting and managing our infrastructure since 2008, they provide excellent service and we look forward to many more years in partnership with them.
Dan Halter, Global Infrastructure Manager, Volition
Big enough to deliver, small enough to care. I have been working with KHIPU since 2005, when they were a small start up. Now with 100+ employees, they still have the same ethos to provide outstanding support.
Flip Van Schalkwyk, Head of IT Infrastructure, NWU
The Palo Alto Networks NextGen Firewall implementation has been a huge success for us. This is mainly due to the superior level of service we have received from the KHIPU team since day one.
Flip has been a KHIPU customer since 2013.
Guy Jermany, Chief Information Officer, KHIPU Networks
"Many of our customers use a large and disparate set of tools to monitor, troubleshoot and manage their networks. As network complexity increases with the adoption of new technologies such as cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT), the need to modernise and consolidate these tools, along with more pro-active support from trusted partners, is becoming a necessity.
