In the manufacturing industry, the entire system relies on the computer network to keep it organized and efficient. That network is full of data about pricing, sourcing, transporting the inventory and where each item is stored. It's also full of data about your employees as well as your clients. A data breach of a manufacturing business would be devastating for that company. Luckily, there are managed IT services to help prevent this from happening.
Every company today has to have IT personnel to protect their data. There's no question that it's a necessary part of doing business today. However, companies don't have to use a large percentage of their budgets on hiring a department of IT workers. They don't have to set aside rooms for IT teams or even to provide computers for them. They can instead simply have managed IT services who will do all of that valuable monitoring and maintenance from a remote location.
A manufacturing facility might not sound like a place that would be the first choice of a hacker, but these businesses have just as much valuable data as any other. When malware makes it into a computer network, it doesn't take long before the private data in that system can be stolen and used to benefit the hacker. Managed IT services are used to keep networks safer so that any viruses, worms and other bad programs won't get into your network to steal, or even erase, your data.
To ensure that your manufacturing facility isn't hit with a data breach from hackers, managed IT services use a continuous method of monitoring that alerts the IT workers to any problems that arise. If someone does attempt to break into the system, IT may be alerted early enough to thwart that attempt. Often, a hacker does get into the system through either malware or a misplaced password. With constant monitoring, that hack can be seen and ended before the criminal gets ahold of the valuable data in your system.
