One of the major hot topics this quarter has been Janet’s partnership with Microsoft. To be launched on 1 February 2013, the service will help institutions move to Microsoft Office 365, enabling them to save money with legal costs.

Another point of note from the report is the 25% increase in the number of SSL certificates obtained via Janet Certificate Service this quarter, reinforcing our belief that this service is of significant value to our community.
