The manufacturing industry in the U.S. is on an upswing. With jobs growing and new factories opening up, there is a need for these facilities to adopt new technologies and get work done faster and smarter than ever before. Along with these demands also comes the need to be cautious of new IT and security issues entering.
Technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are making it possible for machines to work independently and communicate across distances. They’re also producing a lot of data – a lot of which is proprietary and must be kept out of the wrong hands. IT teams responsible for the systems and solutions are work isn’t only concerned with their continual uptime and maintenance but also must focus on the large impact a security breach can have at these operations.
Today’s smart factory is up against new security challenges at a more alarming rate than ever before as bad actors find new vulnerabilities. The only way to stay protected from disasters like cyber attacks, espionage or data theft, is to continually monitor networks and technologies to ensure operations aren’t being compromised.
A managed IT services provider can help manufacturing business owners save time worrying about security risks so they can focus on growing their operations.
Remote monitoring, security assessments and a team dedicated to ensuring systems are up and running is important for busy factories, especially as they become smarter and less human laborers are performing the work.
