Data diodes only allow data to flow in one direction, effectively shielding the sending devices from an outside attack.
Like stern traffic cops, data diodes reinforce a one-way route for data traveling through a network, ensuring that the IoT devices behind the diodes won’t be compromised by malicious incoming traffic.
Simple but elegant solutions, data diodes provide hardware-based security to Internet of Things (IoT) environments. These environments have become more vulnerable, as the volume of connected devices grows, and the networks stretch to wider and more remote geographies. For any administrator of an IoT infrastructure, security is the foremost concern today—with good reason.
