The Costs and Risks of Legacy Networking
Engineering firms are no longer tied to physical blueprints and drafting tables. From smart building devices and building information modeling (BIM) tools to cloud-based project management software, digital tools are driving engineering innovation.
However, cybercriminals and state-sponsored threat actors are more motivated than ever to extract data and intellectual property from these firms. The list of threats is long — phishing emails, lost devices, unauthorized access, insider theft — and every IoT device, employee, and subcontractor is a potential breach point.
This means engineering firms have to rethink how they protect their distributed data and networks. For many, the answer lies in taking a more modern, secure, and flexible approach to distributed workforce security.
Network Security Challenges for Engineering Firms
Securing communications from IoT devices, like smart sensors and equipment.
Ensuring secure communication between business partners and suppliers.
Protecting remote access to proprietary corporate data, a growing array of SaaS applications, and 3rd-party field equipment teams.
Managing traditional networking hardware that can be resource-intensive, complex, and costly.
Providing point-to-point connections while maintaining scalability and flexibility.
