Portfolio Addition Supports Key Differentiation
Wesco is not a typical “parts and pieces” electrical distributor. For more than a century, the company has been guided by an innovative instinct to serve the customer first by developing solutions that satisfy complex, everyday challenges.
Recently, the company put that philosophy into practice by expanding their cybersecurity capabilities. To build their cybersecurity portfolio, Wesco turned to two Rockwell Automation offerings, a security posture survey and threat detection services.
Wesco is a world leader in electrical, communications and utility distribution and supply chain services and a member of the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork™ program.
Opportunity Presents Itself
In late 2021, a food supplier approached Wesco with a challenge. The manufacturer was acutely aware of the growing and evolving cyberthreats targeted at food and beverage companies – and had experienced a cybersecurity incident on their own IT network.
While that incident was quickly contained and did not impact production, the company was now taking proactive steps to better mitigate their risk. To that end, they had engaged an organization to help analyze their security posture on the IT network.
