Firmware is everywhere…
Any software used to control hardware is classified as firmware.
Hardware types and usage dictate their unique catastrophic risks:
Periodic updates to firmware for adding features or fixing bugs make it even
more vulnerable to attack.
Gain control with trapezoid® five
1) Our patented Trapezoid® Marker technology creates a unique “watermark” for each monitored device that cryptographically ties a virtual machine (VM) to any hardware on which it is has ever run throughout its entire lifecycle, and combines applicable policy with expected machine state to detect critical changes in a system’s integrity.
2) Trapezoid FIVE combines user defined policy attributes and changes in firmware to detect fraudulent firmware modifications.
Trapezoid’s Firmware Integrity Verification Engine proactively identifies when organizations are running old or vulnerable firmware and helps define policy for when it must be updated. The portal allows users to dig deeper and visualize the organization from a firmware perspective.
The forensic database with our data science tools will analyze machine data and apply predictive and machine learning algorithms.
Trapezoid integrates with leading security policy management and reporting tools allowing you to incorporate firmware integrity monitoring into your existing security and compliance framework to address unauthorized changes in firmware.
No need to buy more or change what you have; take action when questionable behavior occurs.
trapezoid is the only comprehensive solution
for detecting compromised firmware
