The manufacturers we are working with are facing unique challenges from COVID-19.   Many of their plants have a high degree of close-proximity work and shared assets, operators also need to be in the plant – operations cannot stop.  In light of the constraints, manufacturers are looking for creative, sustainable and cyber-secure ways to operate in this new world order.
