Unlock Your Industrial Network Devices


Security starts at the network. Segmented architectures, firewalls, and DMZs are the first line of defense.

But your networks also need active intrusion detection systems (IDS), health monitoring, and application white listing rules to ensure the safety of your data and equipment.

Industry Hardened

Always on process data collection, remote instrumentation, and operator interfaces are critical to production. We focus on resilient network architectures to meet your current and future bandwidth, latency, and redundancy requirements.

From lightly managed local network segments, to inter-building fiber, to site-to-site secure VPN architectures, we have a solution for your plant.

Legacy Integration

Legacy systems have been carrying the production load, but provide challenges to access data, protect, and integrate into newer networks.

There are many options available to make this equipment accessible on the network while localizing the possible impact of older technology on the network. Ask us for a review.

Forward-Looking Security and Network Designs

The network is the base upon which all production equipment and data systems are built. Lucid's designs are fully documented, tested, and validated prior to deployment to increase confidence and meet regulatory requirements.

We understand that these systems need to work the first time, continue to run under heavy use, and be upgradeable to keep current with industry trends.

Security and reliability is built into the design. Options for monitoring the network and other connected systems provide early actionable alerts.

Virtualization Advantage
Virtualization has become standard in industry because of its many advantages at all stages of a plant's system life-cycle.

For new systems, the reduction time in development and testing is key. Especially in regulated environments where rigid change control exists. Moving systems from the development environment to the production environment is straight forward.

Systems in their prime can leverage virtualization to consolidate hardware, formalize a disaster recovery plan, or regressively apply redundancy/fail over features. In most cases these can be applied without requiring re-testing of the system

Legacy systems can have their life much beyond the availability of hardware or software upgrade availability. Special considerations will be needed for security of the network, but overall a cost-effective means to keep production going.
