FiberPlex™ … Secure Digital Communications

GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND: Patton—US-manufacturer of world-class copper and fiber-based network equipment since 1984—is now shipping the new US-manufactured FiberPlex SFX series of small form-factor pluggable (SFP) data diode modules that provide physical-layer cybersecurity.

Simple yet Effective
“We’re bringing out a very simple, yet extremely effective network-protection strategy,” said Johnnie Grant III, Product Manager at Patton. “The unidirectional data flow principle works very well for securing a sensitive data repository.”

Modern Vulnerabilities
Hackers use powerful botnets, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence (AI) to discover new vulnerabilities which allow them to break through firewalls and other traditional cyber defenses. This challenging cybersecurity situation demands never-ending upgrades, patches, and software updates.

No Access
The data diode is a hardware interface that prevents all external access to a high-security network. The unit secures the system by providing a one-way, simplex data transfer—with no return path for system ingress.

Air Gap
“The SFP data diode creates an 'air gap' in the network that allows the right people to see the information they need, while keeping the wrong people out: intruders, hackers, malicious netbots, and so forth,” Mr. Grant said.

Legitimate Use. No Compromise
Meanwhile the data required for remote monitoring, backup, or analysis is sent over the transmit path to another network. End users and applications can access the delivered information as needed—without compromising access to the data network that receives the information.

Made in the USA 
Patton’s SFX series is the only one designed and manufactured entirely in the USA. 

Housed in a milled brass enclosure, these SFPs are tough. The rugged enclosure also provides maximum electro-magnetic and radio-frequency (EMI/RFI) containment.

Two Versions
Patton’s data diode comes in two versions:

• 1-Gigabit SFX-1DD SFP Data Diode

• 10-Gigabit SFX-10DD SFP Data Diode
