Our story

Founded in South Africa in 2002, Breakpoint has evolved from a Sun Microsystems specialist with a loyal customer base into a trusted technology solutions partner for many more esteemed enterprises. 

After a decade of solid performance in the products business, we established a dedicated services unit in 2012 – to further grow the services aspect of the business. It had shown steady growth during the preceding three years, and by the close of 2014, we had consolidated our Services business around several key focus areas encompassing DevOps, systems and digital experience monitoring, security and compliance as well as specialised architecture, design, and deployment services for complex, high performance applications. In recent years, the services business has changed to incorporate the growing need to assist customers on their journey to the cloud.

Breakpoint’s traditional products business continues to perform well, with product expertise and solutions from several first-tier vendors in storage, servers, networking, application delivery, cloud, and hyper-convergence. Breakpoint enjoys a unique and beneficial symbiotic relationship between its two focus areas in products and services.

From Products to Services and Beyond

With a view to solidifying our presence in the Asia Pacific region, we elected to also incorporate in Singapore in 2018, along with a significant addition to our competence in the areas of Big Data and Cloud brought by our team in the Gold Coast, Australia.

Our growth is sustained by long standing relationships with our customers and partners – we earn our keep, and it shows in our track record. Our vision of expanding footprint is being realised by careful, considered, and well-timed steps into ever expanding regions and time zones, as well as our ability to efficiently complete our tasks with skilled resources, and under formal project management disciplines. This enables us to attract and retain a truly international customer base, while providing exceptional value on account of our efficiency, competence at working remotely and low overhead costs.
