Manufacturing businesses rely heavily on technology to optimize their operations and ensure efficient production processes. However, with the increase in cyber threats and data breaches, it is crucial for businesses to partner with reliable and experienced managed IT service providers such as Swiftcomm to secure their operations.
Swiftcomm offers mobile device management solutions that can protect your valuable assets from malicious attacks and data breaches.

Managed IT support has become increasingly important for any manufacturing business looking to optimise their operations, streamline processes and reduce costs. With the constant evolution of technology, manufacturing businesses need to stay up-to-date with the latest hardware, software and networking infrastructure to stay competitive. This is where managed IT support comes in, offering businesses the ability to focus on business goals while outsourcing IT management to experienced professionals.
Manufacturing companies face a unique set of IT challenges that require specialized expertise to address. These challenges may include the need for real-time monitoring of production lines and manufacturing process, protection of intellectual property, and compliance with regulations such as HIPAA, GDPR or ISO 27001. Managed IT support providers have the skills and knowledge to design, implement, and maintain IT systems that are tailored to the specific needs of manufacturing businesses.
One of the key benefits of managed IT support in the manufacturing sector is the ability to improve efficiency and reduce downtime. IT issues can significantly disrupt production, leading to delays and lost revenue. By outsourcing IT management, businesses can ensure that their systems are proactively monitored and maintained, minimizing the risk of downtime and increasing productivity.
Another benefit is enhanced security. Manufacturing businesses often deal with sensitive information such as product designs, customer data, and financial information. Managed IT support providers can implement advanced security measures such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and encryption technologies to protect against cyber threats.
Manufacturing businesses often require expensive, on-site specialist IT resources to run and maintain their systems. Our cloud solutions can help your manufacturing business considerably reduce your capital spend as you only pay for what you use, whilst taking the hassle and responsibility out of managing your own on-premises hardware and software.

Prior to bringing Swiftcomm onboard, our outsourced support had left KLM Engineering in a vulnerable state. So much so, whilst discussions were ongoing for Swiftcomm to take over the contract, we suffered (what has become all too common) a cyber-attack on all KLM’s systems. Fortunately, Swiftcomm were able to secure the file server, but the remaining were beyond saving. Through complete dedication and a full understanding of the situation, Swiftcomm supported KLM throughout. Rebuilding, reassuring and working closely with KLM, confidence has been firmly established with the resilience of our network infrastructure. Ongoing monitoring of all our network has proven to ensure performance and security are maintained.
