Secure Connections to the Cloud
2. However, security concerns have trapped that data in the plant
3. Secure cloud gateways release that data without compromising cybersecurity
Data is Trapped in OT Networks
Critical infrastructure networks are generating more data than ever before. Due to cybersecurity concerns, OT data is trapped inside the network. A traditional air gap provides the highest level of security however, this architecture prevents the exchange of mission critical data. Software-based firewall solutions fail against today’s advanced persistent threats and organizations need a more secure way to transfer OT data out of their network without external routable access back into the OT network for analysis in the cloud.
Securely Release OT Data to the Cloud
Maintaining an air-gapped architecture today, secured by Owl’s hardware-enforced, data diode-based cloud gateway solutions, releases the power of data to the cloud without compromising security. Data can securely flow one-way out of the network, with no external routable access back into the source network. The air-gapped network architecture remains secure and no new threat vectors are introduced through the one-way data transfer to the cloud. Lower levels of the Purdue OT stack can be safely connected directly from OT devices to the cloud for monitoring and analysis.
Hardware-Enforced Secure Cloud Gateway Solutions
Owl’s hardware-enforced data diode-based secure cloud gateway solutions securely transfer OT data one-way out of the network through cloud brokers, like Mosquitto and Hive MQ, via industrial protocols, like MQTT and AMQP, to the cloud. The hardware-enforced nature of these solutions prevents external routable access back into the source network through these connections. Owl supports commonly-used industrial protocols and cloud brokers to achieve various cloud use case architectures.
