IT Solutions for the Manufacturing Industry

IT Management Is Critical in Manufacturing.

In a rapidly evolving cyber threat landscape, manufacturing companies face increasing risks and challenges. According to a survey by NIST, 88% of small and medium-sized manufacturers (SMMs) felt their business was vulnerable to a cyberattack. However, only 46% of SMMs had identified cybersecurity threats, and merely 36% had performed a risk assessment. This highlights the critical importance of safeguarding your manufacturing business from potential threats.

At Ascend Technologies, we understand the unique challenges faced by manufacturing companies. To help your business thrive and stay ahead in the competitive landscape, we offer a comprehensive suite of IT and business solutions tailored to your needs, including robust cybersecurity measures.
