What we do

Whether it is a mobile solution to share powerful information with your customers, managed services for a hassle free approach to IT, or a security assessment to help protect you from the bad guys, you can mix and match our services to fit your requirements.

  • Managed Services - Our dedicated, multi-disciplined team can look after every aspect of your environment and ensure things run smoothly. We are passionate about using innovative technology and platforms to keep you up and running, and have three packages available so you can choose the level that best suits your business.

  • Security - Our security specialists love the challenge of making it as difficult as possible for the bad guys to compromise your systems – from inside as well as the outside. Our experts use the same tools as the hackers (and some that are better!) to protect and test your systems and ensure they’re in the most hardened state possible.
    We also specialise in installing and configuring secure firewalls, networking and wireless networking solutions, hardened operating systems, intrusion detection and prevention capabilities, Internet filtering and monitoring, disaster recovery and business continuity solutions.
  • Infrastructure projects - Whether you need to implement new or additional IT infrastructure or systems, either on-premise or in the cloud, our expert team can help. We are a passionate, vendor-agnostic team who love all things IT – virtualisation, relocations, storage, cloud, deployment, back up, upgrades… you name it.
    Kiandra Best Practice methodology and documents for configuration and support are built and shared with the team, providing a consistent, proven approach and a strong body of knowledge to leverage to support a wide range of technology projects.
  • Core business applications - We have extensive experience in designing enterprise architectures, delivering high-throughput transaction processing and the robust, fault-tolerant orchestration of business processes across large-scale systems. Kiandra IT is accomplished at delivering complex, enterprise-scale software development. For over 20 years we have been delivering software solutions to implement national and global technology initiatives and assist in large scale organisational transformations. We have delivered solutions to some of the world’s biggest brands, transforming how they engage with their customers and facilitate back-office operations.
  • Cloud solutions - We work with the best to deliver secure Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Software-as-a-Service and Security solutions to our customers. We’ve done our homework and have hand-picked a range of excellent and complementary cloud offerings so we can provide the right solution for all budgets and service-level requirements.
  • Mobile app development - Kiandra follows a mobile-first approach to device development and we specialise in cross-platform and web-delivered apps that leverage the power and interconnectivity of modern devices. Businesses that successfully execute application strategies are outperforming those that don’t in revenue growth and profit growth, and experience more business from new products and services.
