Captain RDM – Episode #13 – Retailer’s Nightmare

Excited to go shopping for the new Fall collection? Watch what happens when your credit card details get stolen because your favorite store has been hacked by a #BadUSB​. Don’t worry, once again our super hero, Captain RDM knows what to do to save the day and put the criminal behind bars.

Sepio’s Hardware Access Control (HAC-1) solution provides the Layer 1 visibility required for ZTHA. The HAC-1 solution calculates a digital fingerprint of all hardware assets (IT/OT/IoT), meaning every device gets detected for what it truly is, not just what it claims to be. Such visibility allows for the effective enforcement of the ZT security protocols, thereby enhancing the overall ZT approach. Additionally, the comprehensive policy enforcement mechanism of the HAC-1 solution, combined with its Rogue Device Mitigation capability, means that any unapproved or rogue hardware is blocked instantly, preventing any hardware-based attacks from occurring.

With HAC-1, retailers are protected on Layer 1, and existing cybersecurity investments are put to better use thanks to greater visibility.

Hardware Attacks Retail Industry

Sepio’s Hardware Access Control HAC-1, provides 100% hardware device visibility and prevents hardware attacks in the retail industry.

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

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

The idea is to verify and then trust that those assets are what they say they are to prevent financial institutions cyber attacks.

Sepio’s HAC-1 brings the ultimate solution to zero trust adoption by providing 100% hardware device visibility.

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.

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

Sepio’s HAC-1 solution stops an attack at the first instance, not even allowing such devices to make network access requests.

Critical infrastructure protects the nation, HAC-1 is here to protect critical infrastructure.

Embracing Zero Trust Hardware Access in financial institutions is key to maintaining a good cybersecurity posture and prevents hardware attacks in the retail industry.
