The Internet of Things (IoT) has changed how businesses operate and function, allowing for seamless use between devices and operations. What once required multiple networks, bulky cables, or cumbersome wires, now requires just one secure network.
Employers are increasingly seeing the benefits of incorporating IoT into their business model; as IoT becomes more integrated into workflow, additional remote working opportunities will be available for tasks that used to require staff to be on-site to complete. The industrial applications are vast and efficient, and according to Roy Alexander, Vision Net’s Senior Account Manager, “eventually, everything will be connected to the internet, so businesses that develop or expand IoT into their operations will realize a significant competitive advantage.”
The IoT’s multi-industry functionality provides small and large businesses with improved efficiency, increased productivity, and enhanced employee engagement. Companies can leverage the data created by their connected devices to improve efficiency across operations. For example, Vision Net monitors and supports the secured network of a business that utilizes IoT for multiple users on multiple connected devices. Vision Net’s support staff provides real-time reports and proactive monitoring to ensure connected devices remain secure. By leveraging the data these reports provide, our client knows they are giving their customers the best service and experience. This forward-thinking business, and others who embrace the IoT, understand the value of technology adoption and are better-positioned to survive into the future.
One of the keys to ensure businesses continue to realize the potential of the IoT is to consider the security of the network that supports the business’ connected devices. Through state-of-the art patch management, Vision Net acquires, tests, and installs multiple patches on existing applications and software tools, enabling systems to stay updated on existing patches and determining which patches are the appropriate ones.
