NOV Gets Secure Access to BOP Data with Owl Cyber Defense

With many different devices, assets, and protocols on the rig network, it is critical that Rig Controls are completely segmented. With limited access for patching/updates, security devices must be virtually maintenance free. NOV researched various different devices to accomplish their objective, and eventually decided on unidirectional data transfer devices for remote monitoring, also known as “Data Diodes,” which physically ensure that only one-way communication occurs. After almost a year of testing, NOV reached a mature architecture that connects the rig controls to data diodes from Owl Cyber Defense.
