XD Matrix for Critical Infrastructure

XD Matrix for Critical Infrastructure

Industrial network owners want complete OT network visibility and insight for operational improvements and cybersecurity awareness. Complete visibility requires delivery and analysis of IP-enabled data from numerous individual Level 0 devices. Today’s approach for managing all those discrete Level 0 feeds entails progressive aggregation of the data via numerous switches and firewalls to a Level 4 or 5 monitoring node. That unnecessarily complex aggregation architecture imposes CAPEX, OPEX, and latency penalties on the network owner while degrading near-real time performance analysis.

Owl Cyber Defense, a world leader in data diode and cross domain technology, has developed XD Matrix, a scalable appliance that combines up to 64 hardware-enforced, oneway transfer devices (32 channels) and aggregates them into two to eight output channels, in a single 1U rack unit. XD Matrix supports network data aggregation and low-latency data delivery through a single, hardware-enforced, high-throughput, multiple-port data aggregation appliance. XD Matrix enables OT network owners to bypass the network stack and deliver low-level performance data directly to a network monitoring enclave, with no risk of external connections entering the OT network.
