Challenge:

US Power Plant’s highly-secure critical infrastructure network is air-gapped, completely blocking access to external files, except via removable media.  Yet one of the most severe threats to any organization is files inserted via removable media like USB drives, CDs, DVDs, and portable hard disks – and malware attacks take advantage of this vulnerability.

Solution:

US Power Plant implemented the ODIX Kiosk solution. Ideal for critical infrastructure organizations with air-gapped networks, the ODIX Kiosk does not need to be connected to the organizational network. This configuration makes ODIX Kiosk a safe and secure solution for inserting files into such networks.

Benefits:

After scanning files from removable media, the ODIX Kiosk stores them on a writable DVD. Then, the clean files can be safely inserted into the air-gapped system.

Secure ICS / SCADA networks. Deployment assists the customer to meet NERC-SIP and NIST 800-53 requirements.
