RYAN BERTRAM


“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." -Calvin Coolidge

After a 12 year-old Ryan visited the Corvette factory in Bowling Green, Kentucky, he knew he wanted to part of how America makes things. With continued interest in the art and science of manufacturing, Ryan pursued his Bachelors in International Business at Calvin College. After graduating, he realized his dream of working with manufacturing by holding client relations positions throughout the manufacturing industry. At Malisko, Ryan enjoys bringing together the right people for the right job to tackle complex projects, and helping to bring the total solution to the client's plant floor.

Personal Passion
He likes spending time with his family and helping his children to blaze their own trail.

Dream Job
Build houses for Habitat for Humanity

Interesting Fact
He secretly likes the handy-man "fix-it" list his wife gives him every weekend. (Shhh! don't tell her that though!)

SETTING UP REMOTE ACCESS

Just as we take care in providing robust security and access between your enterprise and manufacturing networks, the same principles apply when connecting from outside the plant. We use next generation firewalls with VPN technology to provide authentication, authorization, and accounting. We utilize Cisco’s intrusion prevention system (IPS) threat detection, advanced malware protection (AMP), and URL filtering. We streamline remote access user management through integration with the plant’s Microsoft Active Directory. Through this advanced remote access integration, it is almost as if our staff is sitting right by your side.

Our post-commissioning support service can include numerous areas of focus, such as:

  • Spare Parts Management
  • Equipment life-cycle refresh planning
  • Controller firmware update management
  • Software and operating system patch management
  • Remote server system health monitoring
  • Remote network communications health monitoring
  • Virtual machine backup management and disaster recovery planning
  • End-point health checks
  • Database backups and maintenance
  • Ongoing CAD drawing services for system updates
  • Ongoing SOP document maintenance and updates
  • Network and Security documentation management
  • Periodic Computer System Validation (CSV) reviews to maintain FDA regulatory compliance

Whether done by us or your staff, we can be there to assist and facilitate.

REMOTE SUPPORT LENDING TO IMPROVED EFFICIENCY

In automation, efficiency and timeliness are critical. Having worked with the design and implementation of numerous systems, our team of qualified automation specialists know that automation is only worth its weight when backed by effective support mechanisms.
