Ukuzimanya was established by Guy Hendricks in 2004 and was rebranded in 2019 as Cloud Integration Services (Pty) Ltd t/a Ukuzimanya. Why the name “Ukuzimanya” for his business? It was at a time in his personal life that he was reliant on his housekeeper, Thelma Zozi, for assistance with running his home and taking care of his two children whilst he was at work.

The word “Ukuzimanya” means “to stand together“ or “united” depending on the context in which it is used. Thelma was regarded as a family member in the Hendricks household for over 25 years and will always be remembered lovingly as the lady who inspired the business name “Ukuzimanya”. May she rest in peace.

Over the past years, Ukuzimanya has expanded from a “one man” business to 24 employees, providing clients with quality service, assisting with the best fit for their communication, cloud and storage requirements and tailoring products to suit their budget costs. Furthermore, our clients can engage with us on-site or remotely, whichever suits their needs.

Guy Hendricks has been evaluating the Cyber Threats and Risks Companies have been exposed to over the past 5 years whilst utilising the various Information Technology landscapes.  This led to negotiations with various Service Providers regarding their service delivery and gave birth to the Product “Astutus”,  a comprehensive end-to-end Managed Cyber Security solution. This product will evolve as new threat vectors become evident or new technologies are released.
