St. Louis, MO – March 11, 2021 – The Equipment Dealers Association (EDA) has named Secuvant, a leader in strategic managed security and risk advisory services, as their “Endorsed Provider” to supply its members access to industry-specific cybersecurity tools and services as the agriculture and construction equipment industries further digitizes.

We could not be more confident that they will provide outstanding services to our member dealers and we look forward to a long and mutually-beneficial relationship.”

“With security breaches continuing to rise year over year, we at Secuvant understand the immediate and long-term risks associated with operating a business in the digital age,” said Ryan Layton, founder and CEO of Secuvant. “Recently, we have turned our focus to a few specific industries, where we have learned the needs of organizations in those particular verticals, and we are excited to highlight our experience with agriculture equipment manufacturers and dealers to members of EDA. Using this expertise, we are uniquely positioned to offer both consultive and on-going support that will protect the dealer members from the countless threats that exist in the digital world.”
