Shadow IT

Shadow IT refers to information systems deployed by departments other than the central IT department. It works around the shortcomings of the central information systems. Although originally related to software solutions, this is no longer the case as undocumented hardware devices are being used in the enterprise’s infrastructure. They could originate as BYOD or simply due to poor logistics processes. They are a visibility gap and a potential risk. Discovering these devices and providing them with visibility is a key factor in reducing the risks related to hardware devices.

Manage your hardware assets by using L1 physical layer data and eliminate those visibility blind-spots. Visit to learn how HAC-1 provides ultimate visibility using new data sources, harnessing the power of machine learning physical later fingerprinting.

it asset management.

Hardware assets are all around us and in growing numbers – which indicates what an impossible task it is to track all of them, let alone apply a usage policy.

To have full control of it asset management, you need visibility down to the physical layer; layer one, making sure that no asset goes undetected.

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

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.

The idea is to Verify and then Trust that those assets are what they say they are.

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.

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

Lastly, embracing Zero Trust Hardware Access in healthcare to prevent ransomware attacks on hospitals is key for maintaining a good cybersecurity posture.
