Internet Connectivity & Wide Area Networks

Connectivity to the Internet is a key part of any IT strategy in this day and age with so many services delivered online.

Poor networks, or decisions around vendors and technology can cripple a business, even with the best intentions around IT strategy. Lucidity have worked extensively with NZ and Australian network providers for many years and know which ones deliver a consistent reliable service.

No one technology provider is infallible, which is why Lucidity connect to multiple network providers for our own service delivery to ensure continuity in any kind of event.

Different businesses and locations demand different solutions to get reliable connectivity for their users.  Lucidity work with your business to understand your unique requirements at the different locations you work from to design a solution that will deliver you the reliability and performance you need.

Using a raft of different technologies including UFB, Fibre and Wireless services, we can design you a cost effective network with the best partner in your location to ensure you can always get to the services you need.  We have wholesale relationships with all the key network providers in NZ to ensure we can get you the sharpest deal.

Next Generation Endpoint Protection

For many years, companies have had to run Antivirus software on their computers and servers to protect them against the nasty things are out there.

With the wave of Ransomware software that locks all your files and demands money to unlock them becoming a bigger problem day to day, Lucidity went looking for an industry leading solution that could handle the modern threat our customers face trading online.

Lucidity chose SentinelOne, a leading provider in this modern AV space.  Their technology uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to detect malicious software as new variants are released.  It automatically shuts down network access to your computer and notifies our support team.

We can remotely control your machine in an isolated manner and restore things to the way they were if anything has been tampered with.  The vendor even offers an insurance policy up to $1,000,000 USD if their software fails to protect. (refer SentinelOne Ransomeware Warranty)
