Scalable, Secure and Reliable

The Industrial IT infrastructure supporting any overall operation and underlying control systems is critical. As with any other asset, Industrial IT assets must be managed, secured, and provide seamless integration with operational/business systems. Cogent designs and implements IT infrastructures to meet the reliability, performance and security needs of industrial operations today.

> Network Design and Security

At Cogent, we provide the knowledge and expertise associated with all aspects of an integrated, secure and effective network design. With the increased threats from network, PC/Server and control layer malware, Cogent provides the expertise to reduce attack surfaces and provides the disaster recovery steps to quickly recover from abnormal events. Providing scalability, system load balancing, security and disaster recovery, Cogent designs networks to meet the client’s requirements for scalability, safety and availability.

> IT Asset Reliability and Monitoring

Cogent provides tools to monitor and manage the performance of your IT asset infrastructure. Asset reliability solutions include backup, disaster recovery, and user management to assure the integrity of your data and enhance security.

> Data and Application Integration

Data exists everywhere in an industrial operation, but is often not accessible by users in a timely or meaningful way (commonly referred to as data or application silos). The foundation of any Collaborative Operations Management Solution depends on a well integrated data management system. Whether it is Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), maintenance (CMMS), quality (LIMS), safety, control, facilities management (FMS) or environmental systems; integration of this data is critical to driving Operational Excellence within an organization. Timely efficient access to the right information is what Cogent delivers.

> Custom Software Development

When commercial off-the-shelf applications do not meet the client requirements, Cogent’s qualified software developers can build custom applications and utilities to meet special specific needs. From application integration services to advanced applications such as those required to optimize production or comply with new regulatory requirements, Cogent can deliver.
