Critical infrastructure is recognized by governments as the body of systems, networks and assets (be that physical or virtual). It is so essential that their continued operation is required to ensure the security of a given nation, its economy and the public’s health and/or safety. Essentially, these are assets that are crucial for the functioning of society.
The destruction of these assets would have a debilitating effect on security in all aspects. Additionally, the consequences are so perilous that mitigating any threat is imperative.
Many times, enterprises’ IT and security teams struggle in providing complete and accurate visibility into their hardware assets. This is relevant especially in today’s extremely challenging IT/OT/IoT environment. This is due to the fact that often, there is a lack of visibility, which leads to a weakened policy enforcement of hardware access. This may result in security accidents, such as ransomware attacks, data leakage, etc.
In order to address this challenge, ultimate visibility into your Hardware assets is required, regardless of their characteristics and the interface used for connection as attackers. Moreover, it is important to be practical and adjust to the dynamic cybersecurity defenses put in place to block them, as well as take advantage of the “blind” spots – mainly through USB Human Interface Device (HID) emulating devices or Physical layer network implants.
cyber attacks on critical infrastructure
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.
cyber attacks on critical infrastructure.
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 MSSPs
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 order to prevent cyber attacks on critical infrastructure is key.
