SBL has launched a not-for-profit arm that is says will help tackle the skills shortage in the UK.
SBL, which will rebrand as boxxe in September, said the Boxxe Community will "provide business expertise and technology to charities and educational institutions".
It added that the first initiative will see it help launch a foundation degree in digital technology and cybersecurity with the Institute of Technology at York College University Centre, where boxxe has designed and configured a cybersecurity lab.
CEO Phil Doye said: "The launch of the boxxe Community is a natural outgrowth of our mission to make technology human - that is, to help every individual and organisation to recognise and fulfil their potential through the use of technology.
"The work we have done with York College, and the result of that work - the first Foundational Degree in Digital Technology and Cyber Security in the UK - is a huge stepping stone towards addressing a national skills shortage and nurturing future talent.
"Going forward, we promise to be as inventive in supporting the local and wider community as we are in servicing our clients. Whether you are a school, charity or in need of assistance, our community will support yours."
Employees at boxxe will be given three days of paid leave to carry out charity work, the firm said, with the boxxe Community set to launch at the same time as the rebrand.
