They enhance their client experience beyond traditional IT Support with their Knowledge Services, helping customers to manage, connect and protect one of their most valuable assets – their data.

Organisations understand the need for some form of cyber security to protect their staff, company data, and computers. As technology is always moving forward, it is important to also review your current cyber protection.
With a particular focus on cyber-security, Dunedin IT believes that what protected the organisation a couple of years ago is no longer enough. New threats are already emerging today that leverage the power of artificial intelligence technology. It is clear organisations and IT providers will need additional help to protect against the ever-changing cyber security threats.
