OAS Adds Unidirectional Network Gateway Feature to Secure User’s Data

Open Automation Software has added a new feature to enhance the data security of its platform. Due to increasing cyber threats, industries need to ensure the safety of their critical systems and data. To mitigate cyberattacks, OAS has adopted the use of Unidirectional Gateways and Data Diodes. Open Automation Software (OAS) is a top-rated IIoT solutions provider that has set a benchmark in the field of industrial automation

The company had developed the Unidirectional Network Gateway feature in 2005 for their nuclear power clients. This feature helped the nuclear power industry transfer OPC data from 20 different nuclear reactors for data collection and visualization. Now, other industries such as manufacturing and municipality are also adopting this data diodes feature to protect their control systems from cyber-attacks.

OAS is the leading provider of OPC, HMI, SCADA, and IoT technology services. The unidirectional gateway features allow data to travel in only one direction. It is used as a secure alternative to firewalls to protect the safety and reliability of industrial control systems. OAS system developer said, “We have added this network feature to help industries protect their control systems from attack with data diodes. Data diodes allow a one-way flow of data to ensure data security or protection of critical digital systems from cyber attacks. OAS communication diodes eliminate the threat of cyber attacks and protect data on a network. This feature enables only one-way network traffic and prevents any signal from returning to the protected network. Our platform ensures data security and allows users to transfer selected real-time KPIs through communication diodes. This feature allows users to select data from remote servers to transfer data from all of our interfaces such as Allen Bradley PLCs, Modbus devices, Siemens controllers, or.NET applications.”

Earlier, data diodes were used for high-security applications such as military and government organizations. However, due to the increase in cyber attacks, multiple industries have started using communication diodes.  At present, IoT unidirectional network gateways are being deployed in major industries such as manufacturing to protect control system networks from online attacks. Adding on the OAS engineer said that our platform also allows users to select a specific list of tag variables to reduce the overall network packet. To keep data safe, it is crucial to prevent exposing data from a trusted network to an unauthorized network.
