NORTH BETHESDA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sepio Systems, a pioneer in securing organizations against attacks via rogue hardware devices, has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award; one of the technology industry’s most prestigious recognitions.
Finalists for the awards are among the continent’s brightest and most innovative private ventures. Their place among North America’s tech elite has been chosen by Red Herring’s editorial team, during a months-long process that takes into account criteria including disruptive impact, proof of concept, financial performance, market footprint and quality of management.
“Sepio is honored to be selected among this elite group of companies innovating in the technology industry,” said Yossi Appleboum, Co-CEO of Sepio Systems. “This nomination shows that our solutions are filling an identifiable void in the technology market.”
Red Herring selected Sepio as a finalist for its rogue-hardware detection system. This system identifies and exposes nefarious hardware devices installed directly into data networks that can access and extract critical data while remaining completely undetected by existing cyber awareness infrastructures.
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. Sepio’s system aims to identify these criminal threats and improve data manager’s system awareness.
“Selecting finalists for this year’s Top 100 has proved more difficult than ever,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and chairman of Red Herring. “North America has been tech’s beating heart for years–but never have I seen such an exciting, disruptive and innovative generation as we have in 2017.”
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 it will make a significant impact in the tech world,” added Vieux.
Finalists are invited to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Top 100 North America conference in Los Angeles, June 12-14 2017. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony on the evening of June 14 at the event.
