Industrial

We design and implement secure industrial IT and OT infrastructures for greenfield sites and identify cybersecurity risks for brownfield sites, leading to the proposal and delivery of security enhancements.

Corporate

Every business is different and BaseRock provides bespoke solutions for your business IT requirements that utilise a vast array of technologies – including cloud, traditional LAN and WAN infrastructure, business intelligence report suites and more.

We take time time to get to know every client’s infrastructure and overall security posture, existing processes, preferences and planning before proposing a future-proof design.

Cyber Security

Many factories still have their factory OT systems connected to network switches, which are managed and maintained by their local IT teams. This is usually because IP networks were never something that the factory was involved in and it was the easiest way to gain network connectivity with the minimal amount of effort.

Unfortunately, as OT cybersecurity gains focus, more and more companies are realising that the corporate and factory networks should be physically separated in line with ISA 99 / IEC 62443.  Correctly designing, implementing and migrating to a new dedicated factory network that aligns with industrial security standards and avoids unplanned downtime requires a solid understanding of factory processes in addition to the usual networking knowledge that IT teams possess.

BaseRock helps our customers navigate this change, working with both the IT and OT teams to ensure the correct architecture for the dedicated factory network, supplying installing and configuring the network devices, alongside migrating existing OT assets off the IT network and onto the new factory network.

ISA 99 / IEC 62443 Compliant Design

BaseRock uses our certified ISA/IEC 62443 Design Specialists to create design proposals that mitigate the risks highlighted from a Risk Assessment engagement.
Our designs are created with a security-first in-depth defence approach and provide for resilient systems across the entire design.  This covers the network architecture and segmentation, identity management, USB storage device controls, backup and disaster recovery, policies, remote access and a whole lot more.

ISA 99 / IEC 62443 Compliant Risk Assessments

With our certified ISA/IEC 62443 Risk Assessment Specialists, we can provide risk assessments for our customers that conform to the ISA/IEC 62443 security standards.
The Risk Assessment provides a detailed view of a client’s security posture so that they can take the necessary steps to move towards a more secure future.

Industry 4.0 - IIOT

Industry 4.0 / IIoT

Industry 4.0, also known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, is all about making business smarter and more automated. Whilst the Third Industrial Revolution focused on switching mechanical and analogue processes to digital ones, the Fourth Industrial Revolution focuses on deepening the impact of our digital technologies by making our machines more self-sufficient, able to ‘talk’ to one another, and to consider massive amounts of data in ways that humans simply can’t – all in the name of efficiency and growth. Industry 4.0 technology represents a foundational shift in how businesses operate, as fundamental as the change from steam power to electricity in the Second Industrial Revolution.

Asset Discovery

One of the first steps to being cyber secure is to understand exactly what physical assets you need to protect. BaseRock helps our clients to discover all network connected devices on the factory network – including the ones that have been forgotten about. Using non-disruptive light touch discovery tools and combining this with some manual on-site discovery work, we can provide a comprehensive cyber asset list so that you know exactly what exists across your network.

Asset Communication Flow Mapping

Perhaps you know what assets you have connected to your network, but do you know which assets are talking to each other, or even talking to systems outside of your network? This knowledge is key to facilitating accurate and effective designs to enhance your overall cyber security posture without causing an unintended negative impact. BaseRock IT Solutions can provide accurate visibility into which devices are speaking to each other and on what ports across the entire network and beyond.

Cloud Solutions

Cloud

Cloud solutions provide a wealth of options for any requirement or to enhance an existing system. Adding the ability to offload storage to a cloud repository instantly removes the cost of expensive local storage equipment, whilst adding a hybrid cloud backup solution eliminates the need for expensive backup media, multiple replications and provides clear pricing.

Native Cloud Solutions

Solutions that are mastered and operate purely in the cloud require no on-premises equipment and usually operate on a subscription payment model.

Hybrid Cloud Solutions

Adding a cloud component to an on-premises solution grants instant functionality and flexibility. Hybrid solutions often provide cost savings in both equipment and the resources needed to maintain physical systems.
