Raspberry Pi – A Friend or Foe ?

Raspberry Pi Risks

The Raspberry Pi is a small (credit card-like size), inexpensive, portable computer that connects to real-world objects. It contains all the basics of any computer including a processor, memory and graphics processor. As such, it is capable of doing everything one would expect a regular computer to do. For instance, as browse the internet, play high definition videos, create spreadsheets, word processing and more.

With its computer-functioning capabilities, the Raspberry Pi was intended to be used for ethical purposes, which it is still used for. It can, however – through a payload – be instructed to carry out malicious, clandestine activity, thus making it a Rogue Device. With the world currently focusing on health risks, cybersecurity is taking a backseat in almost every industry; public and private. The global economy has been severely impacted by COVID-19, causing businesses to suffer; a cyberattack will only exacerbate the situation. As such, it is imperative – now, more than ever – to address the security risks associated with the Raspberry Pi, whether the intentions of its usage are moral or not, since this device has the ability to carry out perilous cyberattacks. Mitigating an attack is wiser than dealing with the consequences of one.

It may seem harmless, but think again.

Hardware Assets Control solution for Raspberry Pi Risks

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

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.

Sepio Systems HAC-1 brings the ultimate solution to zero trust adoption by providing 100% hardware device visibility for Raspberry Pi Risks.

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

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

Embracing Zero Trust Hardware Access in critical infrastructure is key.
