In this episode of the IoT For All Podcast, Ryan Chacon is joined by the CEO and Co-Founder of Sepio, Yossi Appleboum, to talk about physical layer 1. Yossi begins by introducing himself and his company before breaking down what is physical layer 1, what makes it unique, and how to achieve ultimate data visibility. Ryan and Yossi then move into higher-level conversations regarding identifying devices and misconceptions of abilities. They then wrap up the podcast by offering advice for companies and talking about the biggest risks in the industry.
Yossi’s passion is delivering simple solutions to complex problems. During the last 30 years, he has been involved in multiple engineering and leadership roles. He started his career in the Israeli intelligence corps (Unit 8200), where he participated in and then led large-scale R&D projects. In the late ’90s, together with his two partners, he co-founded and led a couple of startups and developed cutting-edge technologies and solutions that addressed the evolving security and networking markets. After successfully exiting these (in 2012 and 2016), he co-founded Sepio (in 2016), where he served as CEO, focusing on leading the team and the growth path.
Founded in 2016 by cybersecurity industry veterans, Sepio’s Asset Risk Management (ARM) platform sees, assesses, and mitigates all known and shadow assets at any scale. The only trafficless solution, Sepio is infinitely scalable to protect the company’s decentralized, uncontrolled ecosystem as fast and often as anyone, anywhere connects any assets. Sepio provides actionable visibility with the Asset Risk Factor (ARF) score based on a unique Asset DNA generated for each asset at its physical layer source, reflecting actual business, location, and rules. Sepio radically improves the efficacy of NACs, EDRs, XDRs & Zero Trust solutions that simply see only the assets they are there to protect. The company’s headquarters is in Rockville, Maryland with offices in Lisbon and Tel Aviv. Sepio operates globally through its vast channel partners’ network.
