The Internet of Things (IoT) is enabled by the connectivity of millions, and eventually billions, of devices and systems to allow information to be shared and used across them, as well as aggregated and analyzed by end-users. These devices could be industrial and manufacturing sensors or actuators, medical and healthcare equipment, smart meters, automobile control systems, robotic systems, smart printers and the list continues. However, as is typical in the IT space, the creation of new connections to these devices is far
outpacing their security.
To meet this growing cybersecurity need, Owl has developed and patented a series of miniature data diodes – the world’s smallest ever built – capable of being embedded or collocated within connected devices to enforce one-way-only communication. This new patent (US9305189) again demonstrates Owl’s leading edge advancements in cybersecurity technology.
- World’s smallest complete data diodes, as small as a US quarter
- Capable of being embedded in small connected devices
- Protects IoT devices without disrupting data transmission and collection
