Paying close attention to security and threat management


Threat management is about identifying the wide range of threats that can impact your business and being able to respond to any potential attack quickly, and accurately.

At Lucid Systems, we excel in security and threat management. Our holistic overview of your corporate IT systems and our knowledge of the current threats impacting businesses around the world means that we can put preventative measures in place to protect your business.  

We believe that when it comes to cyber security and threat management, it’s important to think of your three foundations: your people, your processes, and your technology. We work hard to educate your employees about how to spot the warning sides of a potential threat. We implement stringent processes that offer robust protection. And we proactively update and maintain your technology to ensure that you benefit from the latest security patches. 

Scanning for potential threats

As standard, we implement email scanning software that looks for security threats, as well as identifying spam and phishing attacks. Our proactive maintenance means that we can identify and block these potential threats before they reach your inbox.

Making the most of effective firewalls

Your firewall should be seen as your first line of defence against potential attackers. We offer a managed firewall solution which gives you the confidence that your business is fully protected against the risk of malicious traffic.

Our firewall services include an independent assessment of your current firewalls. We look at your systems and network requirements, allowing our skilled engineers to configure a bespoke firewall solution that suits your business.

The result is a proactively managed and maintained firewall service which gives you peace of mind that you are fully protected at all times.

Using SSL to encrypt your sensitive data

Businesses should operate Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates. This means that every single aspect of your data is encrypted and can only be accessed by the intended recipient. If your business uses any form of sensitive data (such as passwords, user IDs, credit card details) then your SSL certificate will transform that data into an incomprehensible format which is of little to no use to hackers. 

Lucid Systems is an SSL encryption provider. This means that we can provide you with a verified certificate that all data has been heavily encrypted. It also confirms that any information submitted is being sent to the right server. If you have a customer (or an employee) with remote access to your website, then you can feel confident that any data transferred between your corporate system and the home user is encrypted and only accessible to the intended receiver.

Maintaining malware protection and anti-virus software

We know that it can be a challenge to stay updated with the latest anti-virus software and malware protection. After all, if you are busy with your day-to-day activities, then it can easily slip off the to-do list.

However, regularly updating your anti-virus software is one of the most important things you can do when it comes to security and threat management. As an external IT provider, we can manage this process on your behalf. We can ensure that all users have up-to-date software that is centrally monitored and updated by our team, giving you the latest anti-virus protection. 

We work with clients across the East of England, offering comprehensive security and threat management services. To find out how we can protect your business from online threats, please get in touch.
