Selecting the right partner for your Network Services is a crucial choice.
Without one, your manufacturing network can become the sticking point for the rest of your business, leaving the IT and OT sides of your network poorly connected and your network open to threats. It’s not just a matter of finding an IT company, especially now that so much of the shop floor now have cloud-based technology. It’s about finding a partner that can help you operate more efficiently and impact the bottom line.
A partner should be able to integrate your enterprise and plant floor networks seamlessly, provide the remote access users need, and protect your company against security breaches. At Applied Technologies, we have a team of industry-certified professionals to find the best and most cost-effective solution for you.
Finding the Right Solution
Applied Technologies’ Network Services start with facility and security assessments. We offer several assessment options to identify areas that may expose your business or have an impact on your processes. These options include security, access (network), and structured cabling assessments. After we review both IT and OT infrastructure, we provide our analysis with a high-level summary so you can effectively prioritize the most important first steps.
Security assessments are particularly important. As the possibility of cybercrime continues to increase, security attacks are inevitable. However, with the right security services, a network breach doesn’t have to be. We partner with you to ensure we understand your policies, practices, and processes as we design solutions to keep your business secure. Our security options include:
- Compliance: Includes Payment card industry (PCI), International Standards Organization (ISO), and more
- Assessments: Includes IT risk assessment, penetration testing, social engineering, and threat analysis
- Information Technology: Includes next-generation firewall (NGFW), advanced malware protection, and email
- Incident Response: Includes detection, testing and training, digital forensics, and more

Every network is different, as is the level of remote or mobile access your users may need. What remains consistent is the importance of keeping that remote access safe and reliable. We have extensive experience in both designing and implementing core and edge devices, as well as the cable plant design needed to support them.
Assessing the physical set up of your network is just as important as assessing how the network could be compromised and attacked. The Applied Technologies team works with manufacturers to plan, implement, and manage structured cabling solutions, including assisting with developing requests for RFPs. Whether it’s third-party testing, finding the right contractor resources, wireless network design, or power protect, Applied Technologies will be with you every step of the way.
