Owl Computing Technologies OPDS-5D Data Diode Proves Popular in Critical Infrastructure

Ridgefield, Connecticut, February 15, 2017 – Owl Computing Technologies, Inc. (www.owlcti.com), the leading provider of deterministic data diode cybersecurity solutions, is proud to announce the rapid adoption of the recently released OPDS-5D. Designed as an affordable, entry level solution, the OPDS-5D is now being used in a number of new deployments, including power transmission and distribution solutions in Asia, government agency needs in Europe, and hydro power generation applications in the U.S.

The OPDS-5D is a compact, all-in-one solution that incorporates the capabilities and benefits of Owl's elite data diode solutions with the unique ability to operate in environmental extremes, all at a very attractive price point. The design and affordable pricing allow operators to segment and protect far more devices operating in their networks and out in the field.

"Our customers and distributors quickly recognized the flexibility this product lends to their cybersecurity strategy," stated Dennis Lanahan, Director of Worldwide Channel Partnerships & International Sales for Owl. "Operators can standardize on the use of data diodes across the network to secure all their critical digital assets."

For example, the OPDS-5D can be deployed tactically across transmission grids to report network status information, or at potential threat vectors in government networks for file transfer, and for specific protocols like MODBUS.

"We knew this product would fit perfectly in an underserved portion of the market," noted Dr. Ronald Mraz, President and CEO of Owl. "Owl's technical strengths have always placed us ahead of the competition. The OPDS-5D proves again that we lead the way with new technology innovations, and opened up data diode technology to new applications and industries."
