CROSS DOMAIN SOLUTIONS
Stop Stains and Drains to Your Organization
Do you have any friends who make you confiscate all food and drink before they’ll let you enter their cars? These die-hards have higher standards for their rides than most people.
Cross domain solutions address a similar problem in the data security world, where different networks often have vastly different standards for acceptable data. And the consequences for poorly designed solutions can be severe:
- Draconian policy could prevent data from flowing between networks.
- Unintended recipients could get their hands on confidential data.
- Viruses could line up to infect your system.
These issues with secure data sharing happen all the time. In fact, they may have already happened to your organization.
Defining Cross Domain Solutions
Cross domain solutions act as security guards between highly secure networks that have different classification levels.
Let’s say, for example, you want to send data between two networks with different classification levels. Before your data enters the new network, it will be inspected for any metaphorical “soda cans” and other no-nos. Any unacceptable content that is detected will be dumped before the data is sent on its way.
And that’s just the beginning.
Cross domain solutions comprise several elements to ensure that your data transfer between networks is
- accessible and not blocked by hardware;
- confidential from unintended recipients; and
- filtered for malware, viruses, and other threats.
