Networking & Security
Your business needs to work together collaboratively, move at the same
speed and in the same direction; having a solid network in place is vital
for performance. Port monitoring, performance tweaking and full support
means that your systems will be integrated into a flowing structure that
ensures efficient operations.
The safeguarding of your network, infrastructure and systems is our highest
priority. Our continuous monitoring means we can look closely for security
breach attempts, intrusions, and attempted hacks. Having our highly
qualified engineers on-hand at all times means that we’re able to monitor
the security of your systems in detail, alleviating that pressure from your
internal workforce. With this in mind, you can be safe in the knowledge that
your network is secure.
Mobility & Virtualisation
We can deliver an agile solution to remotely access your systems, such as
your desktop workspace. We’ll also make sure that your operating system
and applications are delivered seamlessly, so that you’re able to carry out
your day-to-day processes uninterrupted, wherever your location. Our
virtualisation and mobility solutions provide your workplace with a fluid
environment, increasing employee performance and adaptability.
Hypervisors operate multiple virtual machines, therefore security, high
availability and resilience of these systems is a number one priority as
far as the continuation of regular business is concerned. LIMA’s certified
specialists have in-depth knowledge of virtual infrastructures and can
pinpoint performance statistics, trends and issues, enabling maximum
uptime and efficient running of your day-to-day operations.
Backup & Replication
Each modern business is built on a foundation of data and the hundreds
of thousands of files that exist can be personal records, employee details
and financial information; this is before taking into account employee’s
workloads and the other, constantly growing layers of data that lie on
top. With this in mind, back-up and replication should always be a priority
procedure for any business and we can help secure your crucial data and
more importantly, recover it when needed as part of a customised disaster
recovery and business continuation plan.
IT infrastructure is the backbone of any business and extended outages
can have a significant impact on the day-to-day operations in your
workplace. LIMA’s ‘Always ready, always available’ approach enables us to
manage the complexity of your entire infrastructure and ensure downtime
is kept to a minimum. Network performance is monitored utilising an
enterprise event management system, meaning that our specialists can
ensure your infrastructure stays up, is patched and secure. Our skilled
staff, proactive monitoring, ITIL management system and cutting-edge
technology can help reduce infrastructure intricacies and gain optimal
performance for your business, allowing your workforce to focus on driving

bottom of deep dark hole. LIMA not only dug us out of that
hole but helped us to then fill it with the foundations of a solid
infrastructure that now supports the shiny glass and steel
infrastructure that has enabled Autonet to become one of the
UK’s top 10 independent insurance brokers.
