OPSWAT Partners with INFODAS to Power Cross Domain Solutions that Meet SECRET Requirements for Public Sector and Critical Infrastructure

As a cybersecurity vendor focused on protecting the public sector and critical infrastructure, we are often asked by customers how they should secure and control the transport of data analyzed by MetaDefender across security domains.

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with INFODAS to address this by providing a seamless joint solution that controls and secures data crossing domains while ensuring the data does not include dangerous payloads.

INFODAS develops innovative cross domain solutions based on security-by-design principles and provides Cybersecurity and IT consulting to government, defense and commercial clients. INFODAS SDoT cross domain solutions meet German, EU and NATO SECRET standards and are listed in the NATO information assurance catalogue. For the past 10 years SDoT products have been used in the toughest and mission critical environments around the world. They are designed and manufactured in Germany following the security-by-design principle and supply chain transparency.


By combining OPSWAT MetaDefender Kiosk and Vault with INFODAS’s unidirectional SDoT Diode or the bi-directional SDoT Security Gateway we can help public sector organizations solve the issues that could occur during digitization.

Public sector organizations that handle classified information and want to take advantage of digitization often need to solve three issues. First, they need to control which data is leaving sensitive domains. Second, they need to make sure sensitive and non-sensitive domains are separated at all times. Third, they need to be sure that incoming data from other networks or portable media does not include dangerous payloads such as ransomware or zero-day attacks. Critical infrastructure operators face similar issues when connecting operational technology (OT) with information technology (IT).

INFODAS SDoT cross domain solutions control data flow at all layers and constantly maintain logical domain separation. They protect what is inside a system similar to a border control point. OPSWAT MetaDefender and Kiosk will then check any data brought in from the outside through an intense scanning and sanitization process of all data components with 30+ anti-malware engines. MetaDefender can also be combined with INFODAS’ solution for automatic patch management of formerly air-gapped systems. Moreover, MetaDefender Vault is a secure file storage and retrieval solution that protects critical data and keeps threats at bay. It limits access within an organization and provides important tracking and auditing information.

All elements of INFODAS’s Secure Domain Transition (SDoT) product family have met the German Federal Office of Information Security’s (BSI) strict requirements for hardware and software security at the German SECRET and below level. NATO and EU SECRET approvals were granted as well after in-depth, multi-year evaluations. This makes it easy to get a solution architecture with MetaDefender accredited in military, homeland security and intelligence scenarios and provides military-grade protection level peace of mind for critical infrastructure information security professionals.
