Hardware Security Overview

Hardware Security

Today’s world and economies are highly interconnected. With this interconnection, supply chains for major organizations are highly globalized, with OEM’s supplying various hardware components to device manufacturers from across the globe. This increasing globalization has also brought with it, increasing threats in supply chain such as counterfeit hardware, untested and unpatched hardware, insecure authentication protocols being followed, and a new wave of hardware exploits at kernel and BIOS level. With consumers now interacting with hardware technology such as IoT, mobiles, computers on a scale like never before through global supply chains, hardware threats and therefore the need to resolve them have become critical for national security.

Hardware security overview.

Firstly, Sepio’s 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.

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

Most importantly, hardware security goes neglected; existing security software solutions do not cover the Physical Layer. Without visibility of the Physical Layer, network implants (Rogue Devices operating on the Physical Layer) are not detected.

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.

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

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

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

Lastly, embracing hardware security overview is key.
