Onward engineers and consultants help manufacturers understand what is necessary to keep their businesses up and running securely and optimally.

Today’s network-connected manufacturers face a challenging landscape.

While connectivity has ushered a wave of productivity and scalability, you are challenged with security threats to both client and staff data. You have to watch everything from phishing emails to client-driven security requirements like SOC 2 and NIST800-171 and keep systems running reliably.

Onward has worked with manufacturers in many industries to develop solutions for production facilities, intermodal transportation, plant security, and administrative functions. We work with SCADA, industrial control systems, remote monitoring systems, and other challenging environments to provide reliable communication for production and safety equipment. Whether you need ubiquitous WiFi in a factory or a secure network in corporate headquarters, we have experts to plan and complete the project.
