Data Security with MECO smartANALYTICS™
In today’s digital climate, big data is a vital tool used in many industries. Data analytics is helping businesses make better decisions, operate more efficiently, manage social distancing and much more. For industries like biopharmaceuticals and life sciences, the very nature of the industry is heavily regulated, and companies must meet strict guidelines for their products to meet regulatory approval. Data security is one of the most heavily regulated guidelines. Data security is a critical element that must be strictly monitored for multiple purposes including intellectual property protection, quality control, and auditing among other things.
Manufacturers looking to embrace a data analytics tool like MECO smartANALYTICS™ (MSA) must carefully consider the risk and reward associated with implementing this type of technology. If partnered with an inexperienced team, the risk for data loss or data breach may be high. As a company committed to remaining ahead of the technological curve, MECO has heavily invested in smartANALYTICS™ over the years. The inception of the MECO smartANALYTICS™ program began with funding from the US Office of Naval Research, to design autonomous water systems aboard Navy ships. Today, MECO smartANALYTICS™ is installed in water systems around the world.
