Digital Transformation and Industry 4.0

Digital transformation refers to the wide-scale digitization of processes and technologies with the aim of improving operational efficiency and reducing costs.  This can include replacing old or inefficient software or equipment, digitizing or automating tasks once done manually, and consolidating tasks to be done under a single solution.  Digital transformation for manufacturers not only helps improve overall efficiency and cost-effectiveness, but also helps businesses stay competitive. 

Industry 4.0 is a concept similar to digital transformation as it refers to the incorporation of smart manufacturing, considered the fourth industrial revolution.  Smart technology that can be incorporated into the digital transformation for manufacturers includes cloud computing, engineering design and simulation, additive manufacturing, 3D printing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, data analytics, and more.

We will start by understanding your technology needs and evaluating your current IT infrastructure.  We can suggest and implement new strategies and technology that will help improve the efficiency of your IT infrastructure and help you achieve your technology goals. 

Cloud for Manufacturing

Data storage and protection is important for manufacturing businesses.  It is common for businesses to have data stored across devices such as servers, hard drives, and laptops, but it is safer and more cost-effective to consolidate your data and storage with cloud computing.

PSM provides cloud services for manufacturing businesses to help set up cloud-based storage and migrate data to the cloud.  Our professionals can set up, manage, and secure Microsoft cloud for manufacturing businesses. 

We will assess your data storage and safety needs to determine the best option when it comes to cloud storage.  We can help reduce the costs of data storage and improve efficiency by replacing hardware storage with cloud-based solutions.

Manufacturing Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is extremely important for manufacturing businesses as a cyberattack or breach can compromise important data and bring your operations to a halt.  Our professionals at PSM provide manufacturing cybersecurity services and cybersecurity consulting to help improve your security measures and keep your system safe.

We will first assess the current cybersecurity situation of your IT infrastructure to identify weaknesses and vulnerabilities.  We will then implement multi-layered solutions to address vulnerabilities as well as monitor and update security software within the system to keep it protected from malware, breaches, and cyberattacks.  We can also take on a consulting role and advise you on the best cybersecurity strategies to implement to protect your system.

An MSP is a managed service provider that offers IT management and support services for manufacturers.  They can monitor and manage the IT infrastructure of a manufacturing firm and implement new technology and strategies to improve efficiency, security, and productivity.  

Manufacturing businesses are an integral part of supply chains and are highly vulnerable to cyberattacks.  Attackers can disrupt operations and plant malicious codes that can disrupt operations and even the entire supply chain.  The use of industrial IoT devices that increase the interconnectivity between endpoints exposes IT infrastructures to attackers as they can gain unauthorized access through any connected device.

A cyberattack can disrupt a manufacturing business for days or even weeks.  It is best for manufacturers to work with a managed security service provider (MSSP) like PSM to implement and manage their cybersecurity to keep their system protected from breaches, malware, and other events. 

Industrial Control Systems (ICS) security is the security of control systems that operate infrastructure, such as water, power, manufacturing, transportation, and other important services.  The security of ICS systems consists of hardware and software that ensure the protection and function of these systems, as well as the safety of those who operate the systems and those the systems serve. 

Effective ICS security includes protecting the processes that support the operation of industrial machinery from cyberthreats as well as efficient ICS management to ensure effective protection.
