Sempre (Secure EMP-Resistant Edge) has announced it has secured a $20 million seed round from US family offices, led by Goff Capital and joined by Hayman Capital Management. Sempre provides the first EMP-hardened, resilient, secure military-grade communications and high-performance edge-computing infrastructure for telecom operators, first responders, government, and enterprise customers.
“We are seeing an escalation of attacks on our nation’s critical infrastructure, which is why our firm is focusing new investment on technology and innovation that protects the US. As we roll out 5G and increase our dependence on connectivity, securing our data is crucial,” said Rhydon Lee, partner at Goff Capital. “We invested in Sempre because the team, composed of technical experts in commercial networking and edge computing and seasoned veterans in national security, is committed to ensuring access to secure, reliable, high-performance compute and connectivity.”
Founded by former US Air Force Brigadier General (ret) Robert Spalding, Sempre was created to address gaping security issues in our nation’s infrastructure and to provide reliable access to secure compute and connectivity for urban and rural communities alike. The Sempre tower easily integrates with legacy cell tower architecture to secure existing networks or can work as a standalone solution. It allows for true edge computing and connectivity, ensuring more secure networks while also providing greater access to all communities across the country.
“As a White House security strategist, I led an effort to protect our national sovereignty by building a highly resilient telecommunications and computing infrastructure the likes of which the commercial sector had shown no signs of delivering,” said Brigadier General (ret) Robert Spalding. “In the last few years, we’ve seen an escalation of attacks, which is why I founded SEMPRE to address these concerns by providing secure, reliable 5G connectivity and compute that can integrate seamlessly with existing architecture or work as a standalone network.”
Sempre technology is fully designed and manufactured in the US. The company is currently working with the Department of Defense to build a standalone 5G networking and computing platform with end-to-end security.
