Data Diode-industrial-optical-iso-simpli

Physically enforced one-way data flow prevents any malicious code from reaching the protected equipment or network. Fend’s diodes use full optical isolation that allows data out and nothing in.

Full Optical Isolation

Easily set up and configure your diode with Fend's Diode Configuration Tool

Field Configurable

Fend isolates the protected system and offers encrypted protocol options for data in transit.

Onboard Encryption

Rugged design allows Fend diodes to live alongside the equipment they protect. Flush mount and DIN rail options. ETL tested / FCC Certified.

Designed for Industry

Full electrical isolation between input and output sides of the diode prevents side-channel attacks over power lines.
