Validated & Accredited Network Security

Owl cross domain solutions are designed to provide deterministic one-way data transfer, for both low-to-high and high-to-low use cases, and feature built-in data verification and filtering capabilities based on supported data type(s). Products include streaming, file transfer, and multi-purpose options, validated and accredited for use in government, defense, and intelligence applications.

Owl cross domain solutions have been deployed across U.S. government agencies, the intelligence community, and all branches of the U.S. Department of Defense.

Proprietary Software for Owl Cross Domain Solutions

Remote File Transfer Service

RFTS is a secure file transfer application with client/server architecture that identifies and securely moves files from the source network, across the network security boundary via the data diode or cross domain solution, to directories on the destination network.

Owl Log Forwarding Service

OLFS provides a secure, automated method for the collection of performance data from an Owl data diode, enabling monitoring and examination of all system activities as well as any transfer applications operating on the data diode.

Owl Failover Service

OFLS is a software application that ensures the high availability of UDP stream cross domain transfers, utilizing two Owl Cross Domain Solutions (OCDS) devices. OFLS is designed for government operations that require the high-availability of critical services (including one-way and cross domain transfers) in operational environments.

About Owl Cross Domain Solutions

Owl Cross Domain Solutions (CDS) transfer data one-way, between organizations and systems operating at different security classifications (e.g., Unclassified and Secret) or trust environments (e.g., Internet and Restricted Enclaves). That one-way transfer provides absolute separation and prevents any possible malicious or inadvertent leakage of sensitive data from or insertion of attack vectors into the destination infrastructure.

For example, time sensitive data collection of: imagery and geospatial data, electronic signals, intelligence, scientific, or technical information, open source data, voice and video media streams, dev-ops archive migrations, and fixed format messaging.

Owl CDS products are comprised of patented hardware and software components that include data verification methods (filters, checksums, etc.) and have been tailored to meet specific mission requirements. At the heart of each solution is our proprietary data diode design which provides a hardware based, deterministic one-way only transfer of data. All Owl CDS products have been accredited and validated for operational use.

ITAR RESTRICTIONS

It is the policy of the United States to deny licenses and other approvals for exports and imports of defense articles and defense services, destined for or originating in certain countries. Owl Government Products are restricted by 22 U.S.C. 2778 of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) and Executive Order 13637.

Export Licenses for ITAR controlled items are processed through a form DSP-5 for permanent or temporary export. This includes screening clients that are in or associated with Sanctioned or Embargoed countries. Additionally, there are certain “End-Use Controls” which prohibit exports to certain countries.
