Manufacturing

Enabling you to meet the latest compliance regulations as they emerge

Request a Call

Having a fast, efficient, and secure IT environment is essential for manufacturers and distribution companies to connect with vendors and clients, as is having tight control over the critical supply chain solution. Businesses in these industries often have geographically separate facilities, so speed of communication, order accuracy, and time to market can all be improved using a virtual computing model. And of course, all systems must support 24x7x365 operations.

Corserva makes it possible for manufacturing and distributors to focus on and invest in their products and distribution systems, and not spend precious resources trying to maintain and manage an agile and responsive IT network.

NIST Compliance

Meeting government regulations is a challenge in every industry, and manufacturing is no exception. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) develops and issues standards, guidelines, and other publications to assist in managing cost effective programs to protect information and information systems of federal agencies. NIST 800-53 provides a catalog of security controls for all US federal information systems except those related to national security. Learn more in the blog post, “Leveraging NIST Assessments to Become NIST Compliant.”

About NIST

Manufacturers that provide parts and equipment for suppliers serving federal and local governments must be compliant with the latest NIST 800-171 mandate by December 31, 2017. NIST dictates how Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) is stored and accessed.

For most companies, the easiest, most economical way to become NIST compliant is to use a third party to perform a NIST 800-171 assessment. Corserva offers a specific program to enable manufacturers to become NIST compliant. Learn more in the blog post, “3 Myths About NIST 800-171.”

Consulting Services for Manufacturing Companies

Corserva offers a full range of IT consulting services to address any computing need. We can help you maximize the performance of your in-house systems, transition to cloud-based operations and services, or provide off-site support. Our consulting services include:

Storage Consulting

Corserva’s storage consulting service enables you to maximize the storage capacities of your own servers. We offer storage consolidation, additional storage space, and server maintenance. Our goal is to make the most of the storage solutions you already have by meeting your needs today and planning for growth tomorrow.

Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery Consulting

It is critical to protect your data at all times. Redundancy ensures your data is protected and backed up, ready to be accessed in the event of an emergency. Services include redundant data centers, live 24x7x365 backup, and immediate deployment. We can also install preventative measures on your site that minimize downtime in the event of an emergency, and even offer a physical workspace location if your office is unavailable due to a disaster.

Security Consulting

We can provide an all-in-one solution of storage and security in one of our SSAE16 SOC2/PCI compliant data centers or we can advise you of security improvements you can make in-house to protect your data. Our approach identifies areas of risk and protects your systems and data from breaches. Security consulting may cover: advisory services, identity and access controls, network and data protection, and security management and analysis, depending on your needs. Our data centers meet the compliance requirements of regulatory standards including HIPAA, GLBA, SOX, and PCI DSS.

Data Center Optimization Consulting

Optimizing your data center streamlines operations and results in reduced operating costs, improved functionality, and smaller physical space requirements for on-site servers. We can help consolidate your data centers, or move your IT functions into one of our secure off-site facilities.

Virtualization Consulting

Corserva helps you decide which aspects of your IT infrastructure to virtualize and plan accordingly. We examine all aspects of your current computing needs from networking, data centers, and hardware, to operating systems, applications, and network infrastructure.
