Managed SASE for Construction
Our Managed SASE for construction solution provides optimum levels of protection for your highly sensitive and valuable data while ensuring you can access excellent network availability and performance no matter how your construction sites evolve.
Finding network consistency amidst the change
We appreciate that, as a construction business, often your sites and network needs develop as projects progress. However, amidst the change, your employees, suppliers and subcontractors need consistent, reliable access to your digital tools no matter where or how they log on. Ensuring this reliability, accessability and high performance can present a challenge.
Meanwhile, as you adopt new digital applications, SaaS, and IoT devices to support your operational activity, network traffic increases, and your network can become congested. From Building Information Modelling platforms and onsite 3D printing to IoT sensors, these tools are often data-intensive, requiring greater network bandwidth. In many construction companies, these applications have been integrated ad-hoc, without the necessary network architecture in place, and are accessed via multiple public or private clouds. This setup creates a strain on the network, and performance can suffer. With tight project deadlines and costs at stake, this slow-down can cause concern.
Hughes Managed SASE for construction provides a solution, ensuring your distributed workforce has reliable access to all your digital tools for all the information they require.

Why cybersecurity must be a priority for construction companies
As a construction company storing and handling valuable data, your network can be an attractive target for cyber-attacks. Moreover, IoT devices, such as sensors, cameras or drones, or other digital applications, increase network access points, further elevating the risk of a data breach. Whether it’s intellectual property, design plans or project details, cybercriminals can use this information for their gain to the detriment of your business.
While cybersecurity for construction companies must be a top priority, protecting multiple access points and changing onsite requirements can be challenging. As numerous employees, suppliers, and subcontractors use various unsecured networks or personal devices to log into your digital applications and SaaS, this challenge is further compounded.
Efficient access and performance
Our Managed SASE solution removes the reliance on hardware-heavy, transport-dependent networks, which are not built for purpose.
In their place, our Managed SASE integrates industry-leading SD-WAN technology and other network-intelligent solutions to improve network traffic management and optimise the performance of your applications, hybrid cloud, multi-cloud and SaaS, continuing to deliver efficiency and reliability as your digital requirements evolve.
