Phoenix Contact USA has entered into a strategic partnership with exida LLC to provide functional safety and cybersecurity assessments.

According to Phoenix Contact USA, unsafe or unsecured processes can put a company at risk in many ways, but properly identifying functional safety and cybersecurity risks is a challenge in itself. Phoenix Contact USA says recognizing and implementing solutions that meet the latest industry standards to mitigate those risks is exida’s specialty.

“Through this partnership, exida provides Phoenix Contact with an extensive assessment offering that can help our customers improve their business,” said Spencer Bolgard, vice president and general manager of Phoenix Contact USA.  “The expertise provided by exida is a valuable service to our customers and significantly complements our safety and cybersecurity solutions.”

“As part of exida’s growth strategy, we have been looking to partner with a select group of companies, as a means of enhancing both companies’ product and service offerings,” said Steve Gandy, exida vice president of global business development. “Phoenix Contact has a reputation for providing quality products and services to the functional safety and industrial control system cybersecurity markets, which complements exida’s portfolio of products and services.  We are very pleased to be partnering with such a strong and innovative company as Phoenix Contact.”
