Trenton Systems, an American manufacturer of secure, high-performance coTrenmputing solutions, continues to bolster, expand, and solidify its already-robust supply chain protection and hardware-software cybersecurity methodology in light of Bloomberg’s Long Hack Supermicro exposé.

Bloomberg recently reported that Supermicro computer products were targeted by Chinese operatives for more than a decade and that authorities strategically kept this information quiet while crafting defenses in order to study the attack.

“This reinforces what Pentagon officials and defense industry leaders have been saying for months now regarding the importance of reshoring crucial components used in the production of weapons, vehicles, electronics, and other critical military equipment to the United States,” says Michael Bowling, CEO of Trenton Systems.

Daily, Trenton Systems, as a trusted, longtime provider of secured, high-performance computing solutions, helps strengthen national security, critical DoD base resources, and provide a foundation on which the nation’s critical infrastructure can firmly and resolutely stand by continuing to enhance, strengthen, test, and validate an array of dynamic hardware and software cybersecurity protections, including, but not limited to:

  • Hardened software security suites
  • Hardware and firmware-based, lower-stack fortifications
  • In-house BIOS design with full customization and control
  • FIPS-140 drive encryption, encrypted OS, and secure hypervisor
  • CSfC, TAA, ITAR, and ISO9001 adherence
  • A dedication to achieving CMMC certification

Without comprehensive cybersecurity assurance, starting with the supply chain, a computer is just an open vault of valuables waiting to be burglarized. Trenton Systems has an established supply chain management and Counterfeit Protection Program (CPP) that ensures total system security.

“That means consistently adhering to mandatory cybersecurity standards, down to the minutiae, so that our customers’ critical and sensitive data are continuously protected from unauthorized access. To help support this, we design and manufacture our own rugged computing solutions, including our motherboards and processor boards, right here in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, developing customized BIOSes, partnering with Intel® and the world’s leading cybersecurity companies, who, as well, are based in the United States,” says Sean Campbell, Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Business Development at Trenton Systems.

Our 31-year dedication to made-in-USA, secured, high-performance computing solutions is why the DoD and multiple other critical government agencies put their trust in Trenton Systems daily.
