Information exchange when information really matters
Cross Domain Solutions, Guard or IEG is a term used to describe the concept of maintaining secure information exchange between domains with different security or protection needs. This can be between databases, servers, applications, or combinations of these.
Cross Domain Solutions addresses the concept of communicating, sharing or moving information between domains and apply validation, transformation or filtering to the exchange. The purpose is to apply strict information-level control (including OSI level 7) during information transfers, whereas highly assured security addresses cybersecurity threats such as manipulation, data leakage and intrusion.
Cross Domain Solutions include three types of information exchange principles
- Bi-directionally to fulfil domain handshake and tailored information exchange.
ZoneGuard with policy-based validation, transformation and filtering is perfect for these use cases.
- Uni-directional for ensuring integrity or confidentiality of domains.
DataDiode provides this functionality in an easy to use, high secure way.
Airgap between systems using manual transfer and control of the information.
ZoneGuard, DataDiode or SecuriRAM (USB-memory stick) can simplify your IT life while maintaining the highest level of security.
