About Sepio Systems
Sepio Systems is a pioneer in securing organizations against attacks via rogue hardware devices. Strategic cyber weapon technology that has been leaked is currently in the hands of criminal organizations that are using it against civilian commercial targets with no defenses against it. These enterprises never suspect that the seemingly legitimate devices they are using have been compromised, allowing access to key assets—often over long periods of time. Sepio Systems is headquartered in Maryland, with offices in Michigan and South Carolina, and a Research and Development Center in Tel-Aviv.
