Rockville, Maryland-based Sepio Systems secured an additional $4 million in funding from Munich Re Ventures and Hanaco Ventures, adding to the cybersecurity hardware device company’s Series A totaling $10.5 million for the round.
Founded in 2016, Sepio Systems specializes in rogue device mitigation. It manages a SasS platform that protects its clients against malicious hardware devices connected to their infrastructure that can used by cyber criminals for data theft, data manipulation or any other type of cyber attack, the company’s cofounder and CEO, Yossi Appleboum, told Technical.ly.
“Sepio’s mission is to decrease the level of threat from the hardware to be manageable,” Appleboum said. “Our technology is using physical fingerprinting of all devices connected to the infrastructure, [allowing] us to discover, monitor and block ghost devices, transparent network implants, tapping devices and more.” The company is able to monitor and protect these IT infrastructures by deploying security teams to work with each customer.
