Physical Layer Air Gap Network Switches
Unauthorized access to private networks presents the greatest security threat to any organization that deals in sensitive or classified data. Theft of classified information and trade secrets, corruption of data and unauthorized control of automated systems relentlessly challenge security officers and network administrators. Hardware security centers on the control of the wired and wireless connections at the edges of networks and systems that tie their elements together. Devices that address this security concern are air-gap switches that open and close those connections. Whether the switches are controlled manually or automatically, their points of connection to the systems and networks they protect are managed with the absolute assurance of hardware that cannot be breached by unauthorized personnel through the communications channel that passes through the switch. Hardware security solutions are traditionally applied to the control of physical spaces like buildings, laboratories and data centers. Card and key fob credentials are commonly used to gain access to those spaces. The same credentials can be used to control access to electronic and optical data streams when specialized hardware is integrated with an air gap network switch.
