Sepio Partners with Merlin Ventures to Provide Security Solutions to Federal Customers
Wednesday, June 23, 2021 | Comments

Sepio Systems, a provider in zero-trust hardware access control (HAC), announced that the company will be expanding its partnership with Merlin Ventures, a strategic investor in emerging technologies, to deploy the company’s HAC-1 solution to U.S. federal agencies.

Merlin Ventures, a prime partner of Sepio Systems that strategically invests in and scales innovative cybersecurity companies, recently issued a purchase order of $1 million dollars, consisting of several projects for its global commercial and U.S. federal customers.

“Hardware security has become an increasingly critical component for today’s rapidly evolving cybersecurity environment across various business verticals, including government agencies,” said David Phelps, the founder of Merlin, who currently serves as the company’s chairman and CEO. “As a long-standing cybersecurity solution provider for federal agencies, we’re thrilled to announce this expanding partnership with Sepio Systems, which will enable us to enhance our portfolio with comprehensive IoT cybersecurity asset visibility and management for federal agencies.”

These federal customers are strongly engaging with Sepio Systems’ HAC-1 solution, aligning with Merlin’s mission of bringing emerging cyber technologies to its U.S. customers. HAC-1 offers full visibility into the physical layer (Layer 1) by using a unique hardware fingerprinting solution, maximizing existing security investments, and extending control and policies to address what was previously an unmet security requirement.

“Federal agencies and their assets are consistently targeted by threat actors,” said Sepio CEO Yossi Appleboum. “Sepio Systems’ HAC-1 solution ensures their security and enables the GAO [Government Accountability Office] recommendations for hardware security to be implemented to their fullest. Having ultimate visibility and policy enforcement is critical in protecting federal agency and state assets and safeguarding sensitive information access through hardware devices.”
