Partners with Munich Re to offer Guarantee, Addressing Glaring Vulnerability that’s otherwise Unseen and Ignored

Sepio announced today the launch of the Hardware Access Control Index (HACx), an objective assessment, based on a range of variables, that helps organizations understand hardware security posture. The company offers a rogue hardware mitigation guarantee as part of its HAC-1 solution, in partnership with Munich Re Group (Munich Re), one of the world’s leading providers of reinsurance, primary insurance, and insurance-related risk solutions whereby Munich Re insures Sepio’s liabilities under the guarantee. Backed by this assurance, it is a first of its kind index to track these kinds of vulnerabilities across enterprises and industries.

CSO Magazine reported that 63 percent of companies were potentially compromised last year due to a hardware security breach. Yet this kind of attack can go unseen as it “lives” below the network layer, making it invisible to most cybersecurity mitigation measures and software that counter networking and software-based attacks. HACx fills the information void by equipping CISOs with actionable intelligence that provides targeted risk awareness.
