At a high level, CDSs transfer data one-way, across the boundaries of networks operating at different security classifications (i.e. unclassified to Secret) without the possibility of data “leaking” out of the target network. For example, unclassified weather data (satellite images, temperatures, precipitation rates, forecasts, streaming video, etc.) generated by 100’s of NOAA facilities could be transferred by a CDS to a higher security level network (i.e. SIPRNET) for Air Force mission planners. At the same time, the CDS prevents data from leaking out of SIPRNET to any other network.
Owl CDS products are comprised of patented hardware and software components that include data verification methods (filters, checksums, etc.) and have been tailored to meet specific mission requirements. At the heart of each solution is our proprietary data diode design which provides a hardware based, deterministic one-way only transfer of data. All Owl CDS products have been accredited and validated for operational use, with a number of products appearing on the NCDSMO baseline.
Over 1,000 deployments globally use Owl CDS solutions, including Communication Card kits, which operate in enterprise class servers, and our all-in-one, 19” 1U rack-mount solutions which meet low SWaP (size, weight and power) requirements. Our products are the fastest in the market, supporting bandwidth requirements from 10 Mbps all the way up to 10 Gbps.
For over 17 years, Owl has been providing cybersecurity solutions for US government agencies, the military, and the intelligence community. We have both the technology and expertise necessary to help you select the ideal solution to meet your mission specific requirements and quickly get it approved for deployment.
