Platinum Aerostructures in Nevada, MO

Located in Nevada, MO, Platinum Aerostructures serves the needs of the Aerospace Parts Industry, specializing in phosphoric acid anodize processing and metal bond, amongst other capabilities. Their 152,000 square foot facility is home to a dedicated crew and experienced management staff.

OXEN Technology is proud to work with Platinum Aerostructures in strengthening their IT infrastructure and security stance. Platinum reached out to OXEN because they needed help with security compliance requirements and replacing aging IT infrastructure. We aided them with server and virtualization services, local and cloud backup, and security awareness services. Improved aspects of their IT include:

  • Network Performance: We helped streamline their overall network infrastructure design and implement a new server with redundant features and virtualization.
  • Business Continuity: OXEN Technology designed and installed a new local and cloud backup solution with virtualization features, which will minimize downtime.
  • Security Awareness: We created a Security Awareness Plan for Platinum Aerostructures. This included a full security assessment of their network, procedures and policies, regular security awareness training and ongoing education, and simulated phishing attacks with management reporting.
