Apologies for the inconvenience. The issue has now been resolved.
We have been made aware of problems getting through to the helpdesk by phone. We are working on it urgently!
Email or skype while we get it resolved.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
It’s the first of April and past noon….so we can safely post again and be believed!
In March our antispam service peaked at 200,000 blocked email per day. 0 false positives.
Our antivirus service peaked at a heady 0 virus outbreaks (plenty blocked though!).
All systems running normally as we head into uncharted Brexit waters.
LIS is 23 today! We have been looking after IT Support for businesses in Essex and London for all that time and we have still have a core of clients from those early days. Many thanks to all we have worked with as clients, suppliers, staff (and in some cases all three) over the years. Your patience, tolerance and support has been appreciated.
The good news is the the LIS product range and client base are wider and stronger today than they have ever been. Our helpdesk is providing a first rate service for clients with 99% of all calls responded to immediately and most issues resolved within 1h. Our remote monitoring and management tools are keeping managed service clients protected 24/7/365 and our managed antivirus and antispam products are rock solid defences. Telecoms, broadband, mobile data and mobile voice are growth areas for LIS with highly competitive offerings.
So here’s to another 23 years! Happy Birthday LIS.
Its been a quiet day at LIS for the Antispam service. In the last 24 hours we processed 30 thousand email of which 20 thousand were immediately blocked and 10 thousand allowed through to clients. No requests to release incorrectly blocked messages were received. Just how we like it!
The earlier reported routing issues were caused by a network failure in a third party supplier and have now been resolved. Apologies for the disruption.
We are receiving reports of routing issues for some of our broadband customers. Engineers are investigating and we will put out an update as soon as we have more information. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Contractors have today advised us of possible disruption to power and communications at our Woodham Ferrers office. We will be operating on generator for the day, testing out our fail-over systems, but there is a risk of disruption to phone calls and email to the helpdesk. Our power backup maintains essential services only which does not include the kettle so there is also increased risk of grumpiness in our support team. No direct client systems are affected.
We apologise in advance for any issues.
Investigating – We are currently experiencing some network connectivity issues on our shared hosting platform. Engineers are investigating and we will update you as soon as possible. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
We are aware of a failure affecting some client website, email and our remote support tools. Services have largely been restored although there are some remaining issues due to server problem on restart which we are working on.
The underlying problem is a third party supplier who suffered a power failure but this appears to have impacted some of their redundant fail-over systems across multiple sites. Once their engineers have completed repairs and submitted reports we will review any lessons to be learned to remove any single point of failure.
Apologies if you have been affected by this issue.
