Sepio Systems has broaden its partnership with Merlin Cyber‘s investment arm in an effort to market the hardware access control company’s zero trust technology designed to provide federal agencies with full physical layer visibility.
Merlin Ventures will help deploy to federal customers Sepio Systems’ Hardware Access Control-1 software, which was developed to enable government’s maximized security investments and extended control and policies, the cybersecurity software provider said Wednesday.
“Having ultimate visibility and policy enforcement is critical in protecting federal agency and state assets and safeguarding sensitive information access through hardware devices,” said Yossi Appleboum, CEO of Sepio Systems.
David Phelps, president and CEO of Merlin, commented that the expanded partnership is meant to augment company portfolio with comprehensive internet of things cybersecurity asset visibility and management offerings for government customers.
Recently, Merlin Ventures issued a $1 million purchase order that consists of several initiatives for global commercial and U.S. federal clients, several of which are engaging with Sepio Systems’ HAC-1 technology.
