Smart manufacturers need a smart network

“By 2021, 20% of G2000 manufacturers will have transitioned to intelligent manufacturing, reducing execution times by up to 25%.”

  • IDC

Manufacturers are constantly striving to gain efficiencies across supply chains and assembly processes in every factory. The ability to see across all operations and control all systems are key not only for accelerating time-to-delivery but also for responding to market changes. And securing the business against competitive threats and regulatory requirements is paramount. Smart factories are here today, but in order to do more with less, manufacturers must be able to integrate IoT technologies and AI-powered insights without compounding the complexity of information security. As a result, real-time visibility into network performance and the ability to rapidly identify and respond to security threats are critical.

In today’s business environment, the network underpins digital transformation. That’s where Masergy comes in.

Secure every step in the manufacturing process

Corporate espionage threats and regulatory requirements make IT security a top priority. With so many third-party suppliers, production facilities in multiple locations across the globe, and highly regulated environments, security can be complex and a constantly evolving paradigm. Masergy’s Managed Security and SOC services use machine learning, behavioral analytics, and 24/7 monitoring to rapidly identify threats and stop them in their tracks.

Helping lean IT do more with less

Multiple network dashboards and manual processes can distract manufacturing IT teams from focusing on the IoT and AI technologies needed to gain a competitive edge. Masergy’s solutions are managed via a single control portal and include AIOps. With one source for information, a “virtual network engineer,” and expert managed services, lean IT teams can focus on manufacturing innovation.

“Masergy’s global network platform is flexible and growing with new technologies, allowing Entegris to leverage it for new innovation and customization.”
