Industrial IT infrastructure and the information it provides is the backbone of modern operations. IT assets must be managed, secured and offer seamless integration between systems to be successful. Cogent designs and implements IT systems to meet the reliability, performance and security needs of industrial operations today.
> Plant-wide Network Design
At Cogent, we provide the expertise associated with all aspects of network design from architecture & specifications through to configuration & commissioning support . Cogent designs networks for clients to support long term scalability, redundancy, real-time monitoring and security to ensure a high availability and resilient system.
> Industrial Control System Cyber Security
Cogent offers knowledge and expertise in the area of network and cyber/malware security protection for industrial operations and facilities. Cogent supports its clients in implementing all aspects of Defense-in-Depth network architecture from DMZ and firewalls through all OT systems (PC/Servers and control layer) to minimize potential hazards without impacting system performance.
> IP Camera Systems
As part of the overall network infrastructure, Cogent provides IT services to design IP Camera systems for both process and security systems. IP Camera systems need to be designed to meet the performance requirements of today’s video systems without impacting or interfering with process control networks. Good operational situational awareness not only includes a HMI/SCADA system but integrated camera systems to provide live video (and recording) of process events.
> Incident Response Planning
Many plants do not have an incident response plan when it comes to their OT and IT assets, data and infrastructure. Cogent’s services and solutions can deliver a proper incident response plan along with the necessary backup & recovery processes to ensure a low mean time to repair, improving the resilience of your infrastructure.
