While all enterprises face damage in the aftermath of a cyber attack, an attack on critical infrastructure systems can have even larger implications, resulting in massive outages or even loss of human life. OPSWAT helps prevent cyber attacks like Stuxnet on high-value targets such as government networks and critical infrastructure, including air-gapped networks. These organizations have special requirements for file transfers to and from their networks by employees and guests using USB drives or other portable media. Because USBs remain an important mechanism for file transfer and for software patching in air-gapped environments, high-security organizations need a flexible but highly secure solution to prevent malware and cyber attacks through this vector.
