[Case Study] SolarZero chooses AMARU for ThreatVision and AMARU Assured Services

SolarZero is New Zealand’s leading solar energy company, offering a unique smart solar energy service for residential, small business and special projects. With origins in solar water heating innovation in the 1970s, over the past 35+ years SolarZero has installed more solar systems on Kiwi homes and businesses than any other company. For ten years running the company has held Toitū carbonzero certification and was the first solar company in the world to achieve this green credential.

The challenge

SolarZero had experienced rapid growth in recent years and wanted assurance and an independent organisational assessment of their security posture. They had conducted security reviews in the past but were looking for a strategic partner who could join them on their security journey rather than something transactional in nature.

The solution

  • Google security review
  • Organisational Security review
    • Reviews conducted with minimal disruption to the business
    • Proactive security feedback given before final report produced
    • Use of proprietary security software allowed simplification of the process.

Within 6 business days from the first introductory call, AMARU had started on their security review. They commenced with a Google review which uncovered improvements to the SolarZero configurations.

A critical item which could have impacted the business was raised immediately, highlighting AMARU’s collaborative working style. SolarZero appreciated the prompt feedback, allowing them to remediate the item quickly instead of discovering it in the end report. An organisational security review followed. AMARU used a proprietary software ‘’ to make the process simple with minimal disruption to the business.

The outcome

SolaZero were happy with the way the security reviews were conducted and the reporting and workshopping of the end results. They now have a good understanding of their issues which they can use as a foundation for a security and compliance programme.

SolarZero were so impressed with the way AMARU works, they decided to bring them onboard as long-term strategic security partners to assist them in their journey in achieving a security accreditation.


One thing I was looking for, was a competent partner that takes away my concerns I had re security – but also that a partner that is non “transactional” that would live and operate as “us” – I found that with AMARU.”
