Sepio Systems Named Winner for Prestigious Red Herring Top 100 North America Award


NORTH BETHESDA, MARYLANDJune 15, 2017Sepio Systems, a pioneer in securing organizations against attacks via rogue hardware devices, has been chosen as a winner of Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award, one of the technology industry’s most prestigious recognitions.

The Top 100 awards were handed out at a special ceremony in Marina Del Rey, California, where executives presented their companies to a judging panel comprising industry insiders, analysts and journalists. The winning companies, selected from thousands of prospective startups and technology firms, represent the cutting edge of North America’s world-class tech industry – and demonstrate the region’s continued reputation for digital excellence.

“This is a great honor for Sepio Systems to be recognized as one of the elite companies leading the next wave of innovation in the technology industry,” said Yossi Appleboum, CEO of Sepio Systems. “Receiving this award is a tremendous validation and recognition of our mission protecting organizations as the only security solution on the market that identifies and blocks malicious hardware devices before they can cause harm.”

Red Herring selected Sepio Systems as a finalist for its rogue-hardware detection system that identifies and exposes nefarious hardware devices installed directly into data networks. These rogue devices reside on the first layer of security and have the ability to access and extract critical data while remaining completely undetected by existing cyber awareness infrastructures.

“This is one of the most innovative and exciting groups of companies we’ve ever hosted at a Top 100 awards show,” said Alex Vieux, chairman of Red Herring. “It’s always a pleasure to come to California and see the cream of North America’s tech crop. 2017 has proven to be another fine year for tech, which is now simply the economy rather than a small part of it.”

The Top 100 North America has become a springboard for some of tech’s biggest names, and a valued and trusted tool for venture capitalists, experts and analysts predicting trends at the industry’s cutting edge.

“Sepio Systems fully deserves its place among our finalists, and I have every confidence they will make a significant impact in the tech world,” added Vieux.
