Zero Trust Hardware Access – Case Study Brief

Zero Trust Hardware Access

HAC-1 implements a Zero Trust Hardware Access policy by verifying the device’s true identity with physical layer (L1) information. Extensive built in threat intelligence database for known-to-be-vulnerable devices provides additional valuable risk scoring.

A Man-in-The-Middle (MiTM) network attack over a network printer in a financial institution. In this case, a Raspberry Pi 4, configured in transparent bridge mode, spoofing a legitimate printer. Leaking PCL files being sent to the enterprise’s network printer. Exfiltration was done through the built-in AP functionality in the RP4 device.

Enterprises are challenged with gaining accurate visibility into hardware assets, especially in today’s extremely challenging IT/OT/IoT environment. In order to address this challenge, ultimate visibility into your Hardware assets is required, regardless of their characteristics and the interface used for connection as attackers. Sepio is the leader in visibility, control and mitigation of hardware assets and is disrupting the cybersecurity industry by uncovering hidden hardware attacks operating over network and USB interfaces. HAC-1, which orchestrates Sepio’s solution, identifies, detects and handles all network devices including peripherals; no device goes unmanaged.

Hardware Assets Control solution for Government Agencies

Sepio Systems Hardware Access Control HAC-1, provides 100% hardware device visibility.

Moreover, HAC-1 enables Hardware Access Control by setting rules based on the devices characteristics.

Additionally, HAC-1 instantly detects any devices which breach the set rules and automatically block them to prevent malicious attacks.

Lastly, the idea is to Verify and then Trust that those assets are what they say they are.

Sepio Systems HAC-1 brings the ultimate solution to zero trust adoption by providing 100% hardware device visibility for Government Agencies

With greater visibility, the zero-trust architecture can grant access decisions with complete information.

Thus, enhancing the enterprise’s protection within, and outside of, its traditional perimeters.

Further, the Hardware Access Control capabilities of HAC-1, block Rogue Devices as soon as they are detected

Additionally, HAC-1 stop an attack at the first instance, not even allowing such devices to make network access requests.

Lastly, HAC-1 is here to protect Government Agencies and the nation’s critical infrastructure

Embracing Zero Trust Hardware Access in critical infrastructure is key.
