Telematics solutions generate huge amounts of resourceful data, which includes details on the history of the vehicle(s), the driver(s) and their operations as well as other related activities. The data from any telematic solution is extremely useful, especially in a company where maintenance costs and fuel control is a priority, also the safety and increase in productivity, and finally minimizing risk. Using telematics solutions for benchmarking or accident reconstruction, help produce even significant insight.
Securing the invaluable data is vital for your company. If this data is accessed by a hacker, the consequences could be serious, plausibly compromising customer accounts, shipments, schedules, personal information and location of assets. Cybercrimes happen because of the obvious reason of the value in place for the stolen data, whether this data is a list of usernames and passwords, social security numbers, or credit card numbers or more importantly the telematics data.
Thus, whether you are a fleet manager of a small business, or the owner or a developer, CEO or CIO, it’s crucial that you perceive how your telematics data is protected and distributed or shared.
Outline of the Telematics Environment.
Platforms those are open for telematics solutions can be regarded as the IoT, which is also known as the Internet of Things, the fleet of the vehicle connecting multiple GPS vehicle tracking devices to the vehicle by means of one centralized communications network. An expanding collection of third-party GPS tracking devices can be connected with the telematics solutions, such as below solutions from the VAMOSYS products page.
- Bluetooth Signals
- Temperature Sensors
- Instant Notifications
- In/Out – Vehicle Alarm Systems
- Instant Alarm Systems
- Over-Speeding Alerts
Few Considerable Recommendations for a Secure Telematics Platform for your Company.
