How Owl Data Diodes Work

Owl data diode products are designed using a multi-layered, patented approach. Each data diode solution is a hardware-enforced cybersecurity device designed with two separate circuits – one send-only, and one receive-only. These circuits physically constrain the transfer of data to one direction only, from a source network to a destination network.

Owl data diode cybersecurity products provide hardware-enforced one-way data transfer and assured security against malware, ransomware, control override, and other forms of cyberattack. Owl products are currently in use by hundreds of customers in the U.S. intelligence, military, and government communities; utilities and energy; and commercial enterprises.
