How do you deploy security as a building block for innovation?
Innovating is wonderful and necessary at the same time. It is the core competence of the Brainport region, which has become the smartest region in the world. Innovation is in the DNA of the Netherlands, but there are also issues that inhibit innovation. Due to strict GDPR/AVG rules and security requirements, it is not always possible to fully utilize the desired innovation.
At the same time, security can also be a building block to enable innovation. A good example is the sharing of an advanced 3D printer. Instead of each company purchasing its own expensive printer, which then stands idle 60% of the time, you can share this 3D printer with multiple companies. To achieve this, it is important that the working drawings cannot be viewed by other users and that you can invoice per use. To achieve this, one can deploy a diode.
Security as a building block to enable innovation
A diode provides the separation between systems or in this case data. It has the same effect as a lock in a river. The data can go from the high network to the low network, but not vice versa. By using advanced software it is also possible to split up data packages so that construction drawings cannot be viewed or copied by others and the financial department only receives the invoice.
The diode combines the physical property of the one-way diode and the flexibility through software to break up data packets and send them to different departments. This prevents people from accessing competitively sensitive information in your machine.
