What is the Fox DataDiode?
The Fox DataDiode is a cross-domain solution reconciling the seemingly contradictory requirements of high assurance and free flow of information. Its guaranteed one-way network connectivity makes sure you can securely and smoothly transfer information in real-time, 24×7. It safeguards the integrity and availability for Industrial Control Systems (ICS). With certifications such as Common Criteria EAL7+, the Fox DataDiode is the highest evaluated and certified IT security product in the world.
It’s all about protecting assets
Monitor production sites and factory locations centrally
Set up a central monitoring location to check on multiple plants and production sites. You do not have to open individual networks, thus keeping their availability and integrity protected. By enforcing data to be sent in one direction – for example: out of the production site – attacks from the outside network are physically impossible.
Share production data while protecting critical assets
Share your data with your corporate (IT) network – in real time. Without the danger of exposing critical control systems to digital threats from the outside world. On the corporate network, you can work with live data, without the possibility of interfering with production systems, intentionally or unintentionally.
Protect safety systems
In the most challenging industrial environments, compromised equipment can lead to large scale disaster and even loss of life. Think of a nuclear power plant meltdown, chemical plant explosions, large scale furnace overheating, etc. Whenever such a contingency occurs, safety systems are in place to mitigate and stop the adverse effects. These safety systems clearly fulfill a crucial role in society and environmental safety. They obviously must be monitored and accordingly require appropriate as well as the most rigorous protection measures available. The Fox DataDiode facilitates these requirements like no other solution does.
Secure CCTV footage
If you use digital CCTV cameras on company premises, you are vulnerable to infiltration. Installing a Fox DataDiode between cameras and the recording station will enable you to securely send footage to the recording station. At the same time, you protect the information on the network from exfiltration. Hijacking the camera’s wire will not help attackers gain access to the company’s network.
Thanks to the Fox DataDiode we are able to get all the data from our drilling platform to the analysts at headquarters, in realtime. At the same time, the solution ensures that a cyberattack is impossible. That was our main goal. We cannot have any downtime on the platform, as this is extremely costly. We practically abolished the use of USB sticks and are also looking for other parts in the company where we may deploy a Fox Datadiode. This will further enhance security at our company.
