The uninterrupted and correct functioning of ICS is crucial for today’s society. We expect power to come out of sockets, water to flow from taps and trust in the safe travel of trains and planes from A to B. ICS systems are key in this process.
The ICS Production network (OT) is connected to a separate Corporate (IT) network environment. Integration between the two is important for the business side as it needs to work with data from production. This network-connectivity unfortunately also opens the door to abuse of ICS infrastructures, making production systems vulnerable to malware and attacks. Ultimately, when vulnerabilities are exploited, safety, availability and integrity of production systems and critical assets are at risk.
The Fox DataDiode one-way data connection protects the integrity and availability of critical assets in Industrial Control Systems (ICS) networks. Securely utilize the benefits of business intelligence integration while preventing all cyber-attacks from your corporate infrastructure directed at your critical infrastructure.
