Explaining the latest M&A deal, Cerdant CEO Mike Johnson said:

“One of the challenges to finding the right partner for growth is finding one that cares as much about customer satisfaction as we do. Many companies state that as their mission but most struggle to meet that goal. Logically has consistently outperformed others in this space and we couldn’t be happier to be a part of that team and to grow together.”

Added Logically CEO Mike Cowles:

“We’re passionate about staying on the cutting edge of security at Logically and offering our customers the confidence that comes with having the very best of it. Bringing Cerdant into the fold brings our security expertise to the next level. This is a company that has been innovative in the security space for more than two decades. Logically’s customers will benefit from the institutional knowledge and experience that come along with the name.”
