Cybersecurity is driving trucking and logistics companies from outdated client-server TMS to modern enterprise SaaS platforms.
The Security Threat is Real for Supply Chain Industries
The global health pandemic, civil unrest, severe weather events, supply chain problems and more have created a fertile hunting ground for Cybercriminals. In early 2021, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security estimated that ransomware attacks increased threefold during the past year.
Motor carriers and freight brokers, who have not traditionally invested in IT security are a prized target for attacks – in particular, their technology-driven TMS.
Securing outdated TMS systems that operate with a traditional client-server model can be expensive and challenging. With cybercriminals tapping into the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to exploit system vulnerabilities on a massive scale, simple IT security solutions are no longer adequate.
By the time someone detects an intrusion it is already too late. On average, it takes transportation companies 192 days to detect a breach and another 60 days to contain it, according to research by IBM. Since a data breach will likely involve system outages and lost revenue. A 2020 report by IBM estimated the average cost of a data breach event at $8.6 million.
Turning on the SaaS advantage
Magnus Technologies leverages the data security advantages of SaaS-based TMS to provide the protection our vulnerable clientele require. This state-of-the-art security is derived from these systems being hosted by companies that have enormous scale and sophistication – such as Amazon Web Services (AWS). It far outperforms the IT security measures that trucking and logistics can put in place, on their own, to protect on-premises data centers.
The infrastructure AWS has built and manage can meet the needs of the largest, most security-sensitive businesses, including transportation companies.
Magnus Technologies uses AWS for its enterprise SaaS-based TMS platform because it is affordable and scalable to fleets of all sizes. It gives trucking and logistics clients a resilient, high-security TMS infrastructure with zero capital outlay and overhead.
The AWS platform also has world-class redundancy, ensuring all your data will be immediately available in the unlikely event of a system outage.
