Use Case

Secure export of data from operational networks

SECURE EXPORT OF DATA FROM OPERATIONAL NETWORKS

A cyber-attack on a production facility can disrupt business continuity, lead to the ransoming of critical data, or even damage production machinery. So, it’s vital to carefully protect operational networks. Organisations typically do this by segregating them from internet-connected networks, but it’s rare for any network to exist in complete isolation and there’s usually a carefully controlled flow of data across the segregated network’s boundary. For example, it’s often necessary to export real-time sensor data or process status information through a network connection. But this can risk compromising your operational network.

By deploying data diodes in the OT network perimeter, data can only flow in one direction, making it impossible for hackers to access your systems.

Data diodes are ideal for protecting production facilities, surveillance cameras and other sensor systems that continuously stream data but don’t the one-way transfer either at the data link layer (Oakdoor Basic Diode) or at a file level (Oakdoor Basic File Diode).
