Does this alarm you? We understand how important it is to stay connected to your plant floor in a way that is safe and secure. In order to protect your systems, assets, and people you must first understand your network and infrastructure.
Our secure, reliable network assessment is designed to lay the foundation for digital transformation in a way that maximizes cyber security and enforces a strong, secure network. Our holistic, tailored approach provides solutions that help manage your assets while making inroads towards an IT OT convergence. Whether it’s the design, deployment, or on-going support of your critical industrial networking infrastructure, we’re your solution partner.
Our base network assessment starts with a one-week onsite session to gather information on up to 200 assets/plant as well as a one-week offsite session to create the drawings and reports per 500 assets/plant.
Why should you perform a Network Assessment?
Lay the foundation for a strong Industry 4.0 Plan
IoT solutions are only as good as the network they are on. A network assessment is the first step in your digital transformation journey as it informs the strength and resiliency of your network.
Protect your network against risk and cyber attacks
The worst time to find out that you have a cyber security issue is during a cyber-attack. A network outage leads to lost data, production, capacity, downtime, and the risk of a ransom demand. A network assessment protects your investments and reduces the threat caused by malicious network attacks. In the process, your OT and IT networks will be separated and made secure.
Maintain and improve your network
Having a proper network design and infrastructure provides a reliable uptime that is necessary for optimized production, safe data communications, and IO device connectivity. Along the way, you'll have a more resilient and redundant network that will enable your team to safely monitor remote maintenance.
