History and Current Status

J2 Software was founded after we identified an opportunity in the Information Technology market in South Africa and the rest of Africa for effective internal security and compliance solutions. This requirement has become even more apparent in recent times owing to the fact that organisations are placing a far higher priority on security, accountability and control of their most prized asset, their information. Adding to this is the ever growing pressure being placed on companies and their directors' to maintain the security and control of the sensitive data of their clients, as well as the necessity to conform to various local and international compliance regulations. With the continued rise of confidential data leakage, data theft and internal fraud the modern business has no choice but to protect themselves from this ever changing threat.

J2 Software has grown to offer a wide range of world class solutions and services to enable our clients to get maximum benefit from their ICT Systems, Resources and People. This has led to the addition of numerous best-breed technology solutions to the J2 Software product stable.

The evolving need for the management of changing systems and environments led to the launch of our Cloud and New Technology Distribution (NTD) divisions in recent years.

J2 Software has implemented solutions and provided services at renowned, forward thinking organisations since inception – there are sites running in South Africa, Angola, Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. Our client list is constantly growing – and some of our clients include.
