While software solutions dominated RSA Conference 2024 and are essential for multi-layered defense of an expanding network attack surface, hardware security solutions can serve as a last line of defense against unauthorized access to sensitive data and tampering with systems.

I sat down with Flexxon co-founder and CEO Camellia Chan to learn more about the soft launch of Flexxon’s X-PHY® Server Defender module. This follows the success of their X-PHY® SSD endpoint security solution.

This security-tuned SSD provides real-time protection against malware, viruses, and physical tampering.

Chan highlighted that early adopters of the X-PHY® SSD are from sectors that prioritize robust security measures, such as government, finance, and healthcare.

One notable use case Chan mentioned involves industrial PCs and healthcare kiosks. These endpoint devices benefit from the X-PHY® SSD’s autonomous protection capabilities, ensuring critical data is safeguarded without the need for regular updates done by humans. This is particularly valuable for legacy systems that require consistent and reliable security at the core.

Meanwhile, Flexxon’s new Server Defender module extends the company’s advanced security technology to backend servers. Chan explained how this standalone module offers full-stack monitoring and defense across all seven layers of the OSI model, while also enabling instant restoration through its patented Matrix Shield technology.

This multi-layered validation is crucial for detecting zero-day threats, Chan told me. For a drill down, please give the accompanying podcast a listen.
