Data Diode Offers Protection and Supervision for Mission-Critical Applications

Belden new Hirschmann Rail Data Diode secures mission-critical Ethernet networks through guaranteed one-way data traffic, while also transferring data out of the secure part of the system in a highly controlled, deterministic manner.

“Many of today’s industrial operations rely on mission-critical networks, or have some part of their system that requires a high-degree of security. Effective supervision requires access to data without putting the system at risk to cyber threats,” said Rolf-Dieter Sommer, product manager at Belden. “The physical nature of the Hirschmann Rail Data Diode makes it a compelling solution to guaranteeing Ethernet network security and reliably protecting systems against cyber-attacks.”

With the Hirschmann Rail Data Diode, industrial organizations can improve overall operations and control, in addition to:

  • Reliably protecting networks from external cyber threats through singular data flow.
  • Securely transferring Ethernet data to the public internet without putting the system at risk.
  • Easily explaining product functionality for simpler governmental approval processes.

The Hirschmann Rail Data Diode is best used in applications where data from mission-critical systems must be transferred via the public internet. The appliance is ideal for industries with vital applications, such as critical infrastructures in transportation, power and chemical plants.
