U.S. and Israel-based Sepio Systems, which special expertise in mitigating attacks from rogue devices, is partnering with Tech Data and SHI International Corp., one of North America’s top 10 largest IT solution providers, to uncover hidden hardware attacks.

As part of the agreements, Tech Data channel partners and SHI’s customers can select and bundle the Sepio solutions to ensure comprehensive security coverage. Customers will benefit from easy deployment of Sepio Prime and Sepio Agents for managing the security risk coming from uncontrolled peripheral devices and accessories in their network.

As part of our continuous effort to ease our customer’s process of complying with the NIST standards and guidelines for securing information systems, we are excited to team with Tech Data and SHI”, said Yossi Appleboum, CEO of Sepio Systems Inc. “Packing Sepio’s deep visibility capabilities into devices and hardware assets together with a granular policy enforcement tool greatly reduces the cyber risk organizations are facing. For the first time, Tech Data customers and partners can deploy a simple and robust software solution that addresses more than 15 controls from the NIST 800-53 Special Publication.”

NIST Special Publication 800-53 covers the steps in the Risk Management Framework that address security control selection. This includes selecting an initial set of baseline security controls based on a FIPS 199 worst-case impact analysis, tailoring the baseline security controls, and supplementing the security controls based on an organizational assessment of risk. The security rules cover 17 areas including access control, incident response, business continuity, and disaster recoverability.
