Sourcing and Manufacturing Security





How Products are Made Matters

Security is more complex than antivirus or memory protections. Attack surface can include third-party components or the physical alteration of hardware in manufacturing.

Our sourcing and manufacturing practices are built on decades of experience and aligned to industry-leading processes -- many we helped establish.

From suppliers and raw materials, to world-class manufacturing and secure delivery, nobody has more expertise driving secure supply chain and manufacturing practices.

A Comprehensive Approach to Managing the Risks

Our risk mitigation controls are tailored to today’s security challenges. We apply robust strategies for quality assurance and supply chain security.
