EtherWAN Strengthens its Supply Chain Security

EtherWAN's Contribution to Phoenix Contact’s C-TPAT Success

The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) is a voluntary initiative led by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) dedicated to enhancing the security of supply chains for private companies.

Phoenix Contact has various production sites across the globe, and EtherWAN Systems, Inc. is one of them. EtherWAN’s manufactured products were chosen for the C-TPAT audit and underwent rigorous evaluation as part of the C-TPAT assessment process, contributing to a maintained secure supply chain framework.

In September 2023, the CBP assessed Phoenix Contact’s security practices, and EtherWAN successfully met all crucial security criteria, reinforcing Phoenix Contact’s C-TPAT membership. This assessment proves that Phoenix Contact, in partnership with EhterWAN, has implemented effective security measures across the operations, eliminating potential security vulnerabilities.

EtherWAN's C-TPAT Commitment

Maggie Chao, CEO of EtherWAN Systems, Inc., expressed pride in the company's commitment to further enhancing secure, reliable, and efficient supply chains.

To protect against security breaches, EtherWAN has established a range of processes, procedures, and systems subject to continuous review and updates. Potential vulnerabilities are addressed in coordination with highly trained engineers, maintaining the company’s reputation and credibility.

As an international manufacturing solution provider, EtherWAN takes its responsibility seriously, adhering to various international security guidelines to protect its customers and partners from potential risks.
