Protect Classified & Secure Networks From Threats By Controlling Data Flow

Cybersecurity incidents can pose serious challenges to national security. Reports indicate that the number of cyber attacks on government are at an all-time high and have been noted as the country’ s biggest threat.

OPSWAT's solutions help government organizations protect their networks from outside threats and data loss by enabling control over the flow of data into and out of secure networks.

Secure data Transfer for Secure Networks With “Metadefender Kiosk + SFT”

Metadefender Kiosk and Secure File Transfer (SFT) protects against the risk of malware entering governmental facilities by enabling configuration of detailed filters and the power of Metadefender Core's 30+ anti-malware engines, over 90 data sanitization engines (CDR), and Vulnerability Engine, to control and sterilize digital data on portable media. Many organizations use Metadefender as a checkpoint outside secure facilities and require all external media devices such as USB drives, CDs, DVDs, and memory cards be scanned. Organizations can prohibit the use of external devices inside the network and connect these kiosks to a secure FTP, so that scanned and approved files can be sent to an internal location.

Keeping Data Secure

Sensitive information must be segregated and encrypted. When sensitive data must be shared externally, a secure file transfer system must be used to ensure confidentiality and prevent data theft. For high-security environments, networks containing sensitive data are even entirely disconnected from the Internet and other networks, in so called ‘ air-gapped networks.' Limited connectivity is possible using a cross-domain solution or data diode that enables one-way traffic only, from the lower security network to the higher security network. This ensures that for productivity purposes it is possible to connect to the Internet from the secure network, however, it is impossible for any data to leave the network. By implementing such measures, even if a cyber attack is successful, the data will always remain secure.

Detect and prevent Known & Unknown threats as well as system vulnerabilities.

OPSWAT delivers solutions and technologies that protect organizations from threats and help secure digital data flow for email, web-proxy, endpoint and kiosk deployments.

Metadefender Kiosk offers the following features for maximum protection of high-security and air gapped networks:
  • Scan portable media from guests and insiders with more than 30 leading anti-malware engines
  • Securely transfer files into air gapped networks
  • Log all files brought into an organization
  • Inspect archived and encrypted files
  • Sanitize high-risk files
  • Integrate with data diodes
  • Choose from flexible hardware deployment options from leading vendors

Integrate With Data Diodes

High-security networks often use diodes to restrict data flows. Metadefender Kiosk can be used with all leading diode vendors and has verified, deeper integrations with selected vendors.

Benefits

Securely transfer files into secure networks

Metadefender Secure File Transfer (SFT) offers a safe process for transferring data to and from secure networks. If malware is allowed to enter a secure network, it can cause serious damage, especially in the case of critical infrastructure like nuclear plants.

Log and manage all files brought into an organization

Administrators can choose how long files are kept and can track the time at which a specific user uploads and downloads a file. Metadefender SFT can be configured for a thorough scan of all files that are stored.

Inspect archived and encrypted files

Metadefender SFT leverages the capabilities of Metadefender Core’ s workflows to scan files contained within archives, both encrypted and unencrypted.

Sanitize high-risk files to avoid Zero day attacks

Certain file types such as Microsoft Office documents, PDFs, and image files often contain embedded objects such as scripts and macros that can trigger malicious code to execute when opened.
