Data Diode Solution for Secure Oneway Communication
Ruggedized Hardware Data Diode with EAL7+ Certification Ultimate Security with an Always on Connectivity
The Fox DataDiode is an elegant solution for the high security transfer for data between networks. Central to the Fox DataDiode solution is the Fox Hardware DataDiode, a unique hardware-based, communication device, which operates in a unidirectional mode and makes use of a gigabit optical data link to transfer data in a single direction (hence the term ‘diode’), between a low-security network and a network with a high-security level. Needless to say, this solution can also be used where both networks have the same level of security.
To place things in perspective, it is useful to review the current alternative: the manual air-gap data transfer procedure. In addition to the effort, time and cost involved, this form of data transfer also introduces security risks through possible loss of portable storage media, or their incorrect disposal. Moreover, this type of transfer is neither continuous, nor is it conducted online nor in real-time.
