XDE Cobalt – Flexible UDP & TCP/IP Data Filtering

This technology is a miniaturised, hardware-based cybersecurity module incorporated into industrial devices, including PLC modules, engineering workstation servers, and network gateways. This module combines advanced FPGA-based protocol validation and firewall rule enforcement with the benefit of hardware-controlled flows. XDE Cobalt can be configured to enforce strict one-way traffic or allow two-way traffic, with strict protocol validation and enforcement. Supporting a throughput maximum of 1 Gbps, XDE Cobalt is resilient against DDoS attacks with line-rate protocol inspection while providing secure data transfers.

Embedded Modules

For operators, designers, and manufacturers of advanced, connected, industrial and critical infrastructure controllers and safety systems, this module can be built into modular platforms, such as controllers, SCADA devices, safety systems, and network switches. In addition, this module provides a deterministic, one-way data transfer that provides very secure data flow management between equipment and external networks.

Defending Operational Technology

Industrial network owners are seeking alternatives to complex, maintenance-intensive industrial firewalls. Industrial device manufacturers that embed more secure, cost-effective cybersecurity solutions into industrial network devices position themselves to increase market value by meeting industrial network owners’ expectations for enhanced security. In addition, embedding cybersecurity into industrial devices helps industrial network owners confidently eliminate, or curtail, stand-alone industrial firewall devices with a more secure and unified approach. This migration away from stand-alone to embedded cybersecurity creates a compelling business case by delivering a more significant percentage of the overall network spend to industrial device manufacturers. Because of this, Owl is decomposing our technology and making it available as individual modules for industrial device manufacturers.

Owl is breaking new ground by providing a low SWaP-c (size, weight, power, and cost) cybersecurity module that can be designed into industrial control systems, providing hardware-enforced data evaluation and control without exposing industrial devices to new threat vectors. This module reduces operators’ need for additional cybersecurity solutions and the overhead associated with maintaining them, thereby reducing their Capex and Opex costs.
