IT Challenges faced by the Manufacturing Industry
Efficient data management and security cause silos
As manufacturing generates vast amounts of data from machines, sensors, and other connected devices, manufacturers must ensure that the data is managed and secured effectively.
IT infrastructure problems can cause downtime
Downtime can be costly, so manufacturers must have a reliable IT infrastructure to keep their operations running smoothly.
Legacy systems can hold you back
Older systems can be difficult to integrate with newer technologies, causing challenges in adopting new technologies.
Cybersecurity threats are more and more complex
Manufacturing companies are often targeted by cybercriminals looking to steal sensitive data or disrupt operations. This could cause downtime and harm reputation.
IT talent shortages pose a challenge
Manufacturing companies may struggle to find IT professionals with the specialized knowledge required to manage their IT infrastructure.
High maintenance costs eat into profit margins.
Keeping IT systems up to date can be expensive, and manufacturers must balance the cost of maintaining their IT infrastructure with the benefits of newer technologies.

Eliminating downtime is a critical aspect of your business. Lost time is lost productivity and profit. Reducing waste is the first, most crucial step in creating an efficient production line. This begins with protecting your system from outside attack.
A Vulnerable Factory
Your machines are the lifeblood of your operation. Simply put, downed systems are not an option. Cross-contamination between your business and factory machines is a persistent and pressing threat.
Next-gen firewalls provide a solid perimeter defense in protecting your operation. Matrix Integration works with our manufacturing partners to strengthen defenses with NAC (Network Access Control). This protocol evaluates a user credentials, the device’s patch level, and verifies the current status of anti-malware software. Above all, we ensure your network is secured both inside and out.
Intellectual Property Protection
Your manufacturing operation is different from any other. Your patents, formulas, and processes are an invaluable piece of what makes your company and products unique. Allowing this technical information to land in the wrong hands could spell disaster for your company.
Network segmentation protects your intellectual property, but just like any other environment, your network remains vulnerable to malicious threats, whether intentional or accidental. Matrix Integration designs your infrastructure to proactively monitor your network, so you can pivot from a defensive stance to a proactive one. When you access every aspect of your network and analyze it for malicious behavior, you can see what’s happening and take steps to mitigate threats immediately.
Downtime can cost your company thousands of dollars every hour. Speed and efficiency are critical when one of your systems goes offline. Every wasted minute cuts into your bottom line.
Utilizing the latest disaster recovery technologies, Matrix Integration combines onsite, cloud-based, and hybrid systems to ensure your business continuity. Matrix Integration provides backup systems providing ready access to your critical data, while we run continuous testing and drills to ensure the right solutions are in place and working at peak performance. When the worst happens, our team knows exactly how to proceed, so nothing keeps you down.
The rapid advancement of IoT (Internet of Things) allows for increased performance, speed, and unprecedented functionality.
What is IoT? According to Oracle, “The Internet of Things (IoT) describes the network of physical objects—“things”—that are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the internet. These devices range from ordinary household objects to sophisticated industrial tools.”
Yet, when these isolated system silos fail to work in unison, inefficiencies and wasted time are the result.
Leverage Your Equipment
Matrix Integration can help your company integrate sensors in machinery, telemetry, building controls, security systems, tracking devices and tracking materials. In the interest of maximum efficiency, we also will work to join any systems that can be connected.
Matrix Integration allows you to streamline your floor by managing the intelligence of your devices at an optimum level, combining all your data into useful and highly visible systems. When your technology works together in harmony, you can manage expenses, quality, and speed with ease.
Shield Your System
Your company’s IoT creates huge opportunities, yet those benefits can come with a cost – they open a door for cybercriminals. Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) devices are notoriously vulnerable; security typically is not built into those devices and software is difficult or impossible to upgrade by patching vulnerabilities.
We proactively monitor your IoT devices and provide you the ability to respond quickly. Matrix Integration ensures you maintain all the possible benefits from your IoT without suffering the drawbacks. Be confident knowing your production floor can run at maximum efficiency while completely secure.
We focus on your company’s technology foundation so you don’t have to.
Matrix Integration’s Matrix Technical Assistance Center (MTAC) ensures operational continuity backed by 24/7/365 monitoring and support, built-in redundancy/disaster recovery, and industry-leading service level guarantees for performance, availability, response and resolution. MTAC is here to take care of these matters, so your team can concentrate on productivity and what matters most.
