CSA Announces Strategic Partnership with NexDefense

CSA is proud to announce its strategic partnership with NexDefense, an elite firm of cybersecurity engineers who specialize in automation control security and process integrity. Atlanta-based NexDefense protects critical infrastructure and defense facilities with Integrity, an Industrial Network Anomaly Detection (INAD) product suite that the company developed with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy.

Matt Morris, NexDefense’s VP for Product & Strategy, says, “Because CSA does so much industrial control system software development for older vintage and newer state-of-the-art control systems, when they bring us in on cybersecurity, they’ll point out to us areas of legacy software that need our attention. They’ve seen it all, and they recognize when a previous contractor has patched something with a temporary fix that might cause problems later on. They’re as obsessive as we are about production, security, and safety, so they partner with NexDefense to makes sure it gets fixed right.”

“We trust NexDefense with our clients’ process integrity and cybersecurity,” says Doug Bourgeois, President of CSA. “I like that it’s not just about threat protection for them, though they do that really well. They’re good partners to us in developing systems with resilience, so our clients’ facilities stay online and operating efficiently.”

With a shared commitment to excellence, CSA and NexDefense look forward to offering clients custom solutions to keep their facilities protected and productive.
