Secure IoT Solutions

As a Fortune 500 business, Wesco understands the importance of your security, which is why we and our partners put security first.

A security-first mindset

By adopting this mindset, organizations can avoid costly security breaches that could result in significant damage to their reputation, operations, and financial stability.

A security-first architecture

We aim to maximize the integrated capabilities of your implementation while minimizing risk. We begin by creating a defensible environment, applying air gaps, and shrinking the domain to minimize the threat landscape.

Endpoint monitoring

By implementing a secure architecture and employing sophisticated monitoring applications, we can help you realize greater benefits from your IoT solutions while defending your network and monitoring endpoints.
