Sepio Academy – Risk Insights and Vulnerable Peripherals

Risk insights and vulnerable peripherals are critical aspects of cybersecurity that organizations must consider to protect their systems and data.
Risk insights refer to the understanding and analysis of potential risks that an organization faces regarding its cybersecurity posture. This involves identifying, assessing, and prioritizing risks that could impact the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data and systems.
Vulnerable peripherals are devices or components attached to a computer or network that can be exploited by attackers to gain unauthorized access or compromise security. Peripherals can include anything from printers and bad USB drives to cameras and external hard drives.

Risk Insights and Vulnerable Peripherals: The Importance of Physical Layer Visibility

Sepio platform introduces state-of-the-art patented technology aimed at fortifying the security of your OSI Model’s Physical Layer – the foundational level of network infrastructure facilitating actual data transmission. With its advanced visibility and control features, Sepio efficiently manages risks and promptly identifies potential threats across your network.

Sepio’s Asset DNA technology, deeply ingrained in the physical layer, operates based on device presence rather than behavior. This approach enables the comprehensive discovery and categorization of devices, whether they are managed, unmanaged, or concealed.

The Sepio platform strategically prioritizes assets according to their risk levels and enforces precise hardware access controls. It autonomously blocks network devices identified as rogue devices or those breaching preset rules, ensuring heightened security measures are in place.
