BaseRock IT Solutions designs and implements secure industrial IT and OT infrastructures for both brownfield and greenfield sites, and identifies cybersecurity risks for brownfield sites – leading to the proposal and delivery of security enhancements. All our engagements conform to ISA 99 / IEC 62443 manufacturing cybersecurity standards.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Local Infrastructure forms the backbone of any business. It is vital that both the network and compute solutions are appropriately scaled, secured and correctly configured to meet your business needs.
The BaseRock team pride ourselves in designing, installing and supporting networks and computer systems for both manufacturing and business customers. We will produce a solution that matches your requirement, we will never oversell a solution as value is one of our core values. We work in partnership with every customer to ensure they get the best solution to suit their needs.
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.
Not only will we create a detailed proposal for moving your site to a IEC 62443 compliant security posture, we can supply, install and configure all of the components of the design and will work with you to migrate your existing devices over to the new secure platform.
We consistently achieve zero unplanned downtime throughout this process and our clients don’t incur loss of production costs.
We offer a free of charge online consultation service in order to identify and understand your requirements, from which we can then propose the best solution for you.
