Owl Talon™ was engineered to be a comprehensive suite of software that supports the entire OPDS product line, running on DIN rail units, 1U small form factor units, and enterprise servers. Owl Talon runs on the following hardware products: OPDS-100D, 100, and 1000, and EPDS. The core proxies it supports are: Remote File Transfer, FTP, UDP, TCP, Syslog, SMTP, SNMP Traps, UDP unicast, UDP multicast, and UDP broadcast. OPDS-Talon also provides an extensible foundation for flexible support of a broad range of protocols and interfaces, such as OPC, Modbus, OSIsoft® PI System, and AVEVA Wonderware®, to satisfy various OT requirements.
One-way data transfer is enforced in the Owl data diode hardware to protect the integrity of the source network. OPDS-Talon uses a simple menu-based administration system to define interfaces and data flows operating with source and destination networks. It features a hardened Linux operating system that follows Center for Internet Security (CIS) benchmarks. These functionalities enable secure, deterministic one-way data flows.
