Ensuring Secure Data Transfer: Diodes and Guards

Federal government agencies are faced with unique and intense information sharing needs. To secure the transfer of data and ensure one directional data flow as required by regulations such as Raise the Bar (RTB) and the GDPR, agencies have turned to hardware-based diodes and software-based guards. 

 

While data diodes control the direction of data transfer and offer some security assurances, they don’t inspect the content. A comprehensive security posture that supports a collaborative environment must also incorporate Guards. Guards ensure that only permissible data is moved—and only in the prescribed manner. When Guards join forces with Diodes, data is prevented from flowing in the wrong direction and inspected for permissible information.

  • An overview of data diode technologies
  • An overview of guard technologies
  • How software guard technology compares to diode technologies
  • When, why, and how to combine diodes and guards
  • Options for secure machine-to-machine and person-to-person data transfer
