WatchGuard and Claranet Cyber Security help manufacturers navigate their digital transformation to ensure they remain connected and secure
Manufacturers often have disparate infrastructure and applications spread across multiple sites, and only a small team responsible for their upkeep. All this at a time that – due to consumer desire for everyday objects to be connected and smart – manufacturers are being forced to go through a digital transformation to be able to compete.
The factories of today have become incredibly complex connected environments, with a multitude of end points and numerous third-party supply chain partners that need access to certain parts of the network.
Traditional hardware manufacturers need to adopt a ‘software first’ approach to manufacturing and integrate information security measures into the entire manufacturing processes. Manufacturers need to make sure that IT requirements align to these shifting business needs and that the risks associated to them are managed properly.
Wi-Fi can present a huge advantage to manufacturers, yet there is often a disillusionment at board level which leads to a ‘cables equals safe’ approach. Therefore, it is important that any Wi-Fi solution has security built in at its core. WatchGuard and Claranet Cyber Security provide an easy-to-manage cloud-ready Wi-Fi solution for manufacturing that is secure and scalable. The solution has been architected from the ground up to focus on ease of deployment and administration, simplifying even the most complex aspects of Wi-Fi management. Making fast, secure, and intelligent Wi-Fi accessible to all within the manufacturing industry.
