Buying Guide: Which Data Diode Is Right for Your Organization?

Originally Published: October 4, 2016

Data diodes, or one-way data transfer devices, secure the transfer of data between low and high-security networks. The research needed to make a purchase decision can be daunting, especially on a deadline. To make this process easier, we did the research for you and put it in one place, our Data Diode Buying Guide. This guide contains information on the features of many industry-leading data diodes that are useful for comparing different vendors, including:

  • Supported Transfer Protocols
  • Voltage
  • Input/Output data
  • Data Transfer Rates
  • Types of Diode Technology
  • Operating Temperature
  • Support and Sales Contact Information

OPSWAT's MetaDefender Kiosk and Secure File Transfer solution offers integration with several leading data diodes and even greater security and visibility over the data brought into your organization. Data first enters through MetaDefender Kiosk, where a user with predetermined security clearance is allowed to scan data inserted into the kiosk with MetaDefender Core's multi-scanning technology. If no threats are found, the data is allowed to pass through a data diode and enter the secure network where it is stored on the Secure File Transfer (SFT) server. The user can then access the allowed files. Any files brought into the organization are logged in the server for audit purposes.
