Fend and Arrow Electronics, Inc. to Help U.S. Government Agencies Prevent Cyberattacks with Next-Generation Diode Technology

Fend’s data diodes provide a physical barrier against cyberattacks.

Fend Incorporated today announced a new relationship with Arrow Electronics’ public sector practice, immixGroup.

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA, USA, Feb. 15, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fend Incorporated today announced a new relationship with immixGroup, the public sector practice of Arrow Electronics, which will bring next-generation cybersecurity technology to government agencies. immixGroup will begin offering Fend’s data diode hardware and Fend’s cloud services through its various GWAC contract vehicles.

Last year’s high-profile attacks on critical infrastructure challenged operators to stay one step ahead of their adversaries. Vulnerabilities affecting computer systems, such as Log4j, have traversed increasingly connected industrial control systems in the private and public domains. Keeping up with the latest cybersecurity threats can be daunting for operational technology asset managers, as legacy equipment cannot be patched due to potential functional changes or warranty issues.

Fend offers a simple and affordable way to mitigate cybersecurity risks, with one-way communication diodes that customers can use to physically block attempts to exploit known vulnerabilities. Fend recently received the “Project of the Year” award from the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program, which tested the hardware’s cybersecurity and communication capabilities.

Federal contractors and government agencies interested in using one-way communication diodes to physically protect against cyberattacks and the exploitation of vulnerabilities should contact Fend at [email protected]
