OPSWAT unveiled the MetaDefender Kiosk K2100, a brand-new, incredibly tough mobile kiosk created to protect crucial networks under even the worst circumstances. Many industries rely on operational technology (OT) and industrial control systems (ICS), but they are frequently isolated via air-gapped networks. As a result, OT personnel must rely on removable media to install updates, perform audits, and transfer data.
However, if not properly managed, these removable media devices can introduce potential vulnerabilities and malware that can then spread throughout the network. Before entering or leaving a secure environment, the MetaDefender Kiosk acts as a digital security guard, inspecting all media for malware, vulnerabilities, and sensitive data.
Sid Snitkin, VP, Cybersecurity Services at ARC Advisory Group stated, “OPSWAT has a deep understanding of the challenges OT security teams face. I am impressed with the comprehensive suite of security solutions and services the company offers to address those challenges, and I’m excited that our ARC Industry Leadership Forum attendees will get to experience it firsthand.”
The ruggedized military-grade solution enables the secure use of portable and removable media in all conditions and environments. Like the other MetaDefender Kiosk models, the K2100 was constructed using the best cyber-threat prevention technologies from OPSWAT, such as multiscanning with over 30 anti-malware engines, file vulnerability assessment and compliance checks.
Pete Lund, VP of Products, OT Security of OPSWAT commented, “I am pleased to unveil the mobile iteration of our MetaDefender Kiosk. Critical infrastructure operators and security professionals are faced with both demanding environmental conditions and protecting critical systems against uncontrolled removable media and malware. The new MetaDefender Kiosk 2100 operates in the most challenging environments. It is built to withstand rain, dust, vibrations, and more – and most importantly easily, in full gear and gloves.”
