Arbit Data Diode Device

This data diode consist of two enclosures (PITCHER and CATCHER) connected by a single fiber-optic cable. The PITCHER connects to the LOW side network and the CATCHER connects to the HIGH side network. Two additional computers/servers (one LOW and one HIGH) must be added to this solution in order to make a fully functional data diode. Each device can be TEMPESTED according the NATO regulations SDIP-27 Level A. The LOW side computer/server can be virtualized.

Arbit supports several different computers and servers. Contact Arbit for more information on this solution.

The Arbit Data Diode Device is ideal for deployment of the data diode where servers of a certain capacity or configuration is required.


Arbit Data Diode Unit

This product contains a fully integrated data diode in two separated enclosures. It is similar to the Arbit Data Diode Device, but doesn’t require additional servers or computers in order to operate. The enclosures are separated by a single fiber-optic cable which divides the data diode into two isolated zones, LOW and HIGH. No other connections between the enclosures exist. Each enclosure can be TEMPESTED according the NATO regulations SDIP-27 Level A.

The Arbit Data Diode Unit is ideal for quick and easy deployment and in locations where the available space is limited.


Arbit Virtual Data Diode

This product has a higher transfer rate than the regular Arbit Data Diode. It consist of one Arbit Data Diode Unit (two enclosures), and two regular servers (two enclosures). Each enclosure can be TEMPESTED according the NATO regulations SDIP-27 Level A. The regular servers can be virtualized.

The Arbit Virtual Data Diode is ideal for connections which require a very high throughput.


Combinations

It’s also possible to combine LOW and HIGH side solutions of the Arbit Data Diode Unit and the Arbit Data Diode Device. This makes the Arbit Data Diode hardware very flexible.
