BETHESDA, Md., Feb. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tamir Pardo will join Sepio Systems to serve as chairman of the board as part of the company's expansion. "Cyber attacks on critical infrastructure and financial institutions are a major threat to the global economy," notes Mr. Pardo. "Most cyber security products protect the internet, applications, and data—Sepio's security suite addresses an attack vector underserved by current market solutions. I look forward to addressing these challenges as Sepio's leader."
Mr. Pardo began his military service at age 18 with the Israeli Special Forces where he served as an officer. He joined the Mossad in 1980, and served in field and technical positions until he rose to become Director of Operations and Technology. In January 2011, Mr. Pardo was appointed by the Israeli Prime Minister to lead the Mossad, serving as Director. He proudly served in this role until January 2016. Under Mr. Pardo's command, the Mossad received numerous prestigious decorations for operations and technological innovations.
"We are proud to have Mr. Pardo on our team and confident that his experience, vision and leadership will impact results," notes Yossi Appleboum, Co-CEO of Sepio Systems.
Sepio Systems, a cyber security company protecting organizations against device supply chain attacks, will introduce its Supply Chain Security Suite at San Francisco's RSA Conference on February 13. The platform combines hardware and software to stop rogue hardware before it damages normal operations of an organization. It isolates and contains potential attacks without degrading system performance.
"Penetrating supply chains—once done only by governments—has become a common attack vector of criminal organizations," notes Mr. Appleboum. "Sepio's suite secures organizations against supply chain attacks. Our product closes the supply chain's 'open door'; voiding supply chain attacks."
Several financial institutions and corporations are evaluating the suite. The company expects to begin fulfilling orders during the second quarter of 2017.
