Bifrost USB Tunnel

USB Tunnel
Bridging the gap between
remote devices

Leverage USB Tunneling for direct connectivity Without VPNs or Endpoint Exposure

Remote Access as it should be

USB-Only Connectivity

IT or OT devices often need programming, configuration, troubleshooting, and calibration through software on a computer connected to the device.

But how do you establish remote access when direct access via USB is the only available option?

With the Bifrost USB Tunnel, you can establish USB connectivity between your remote devices — even when they are offline.

Initial Device Setup

Situation: Devices such as routers, network switches, or new servers might not have initial network settings configured, which could complicate or delay setup processes.

Solution: Combine a USB Tunnel with an external network adapter to bypass potential network setup issues and achieve point-to-point Layer 2 access, facilitating immediate device configurations.

Network Security and Isolation

Situation: In high-security settings such as industrial control systems, preventing unauthorized network access is paramount.

Solution: A USB Tunnel ensures you can manage these sensitive
devices without connecting them to a potentially vulnerable
network, maintaining stringent security and isolation.

Troubleshooting and Recovery

Situation: When network functionality is compromised due to misconfigurations, firmware issues, or hardware failures, managing the device over a network might be impossible.

Solution: A USB Tunnel offers a direct connection that enables you to perform essential troubleshooting and recovery tasks efficiently, ensuring minimal downtime and swift resolution.

When implementing Bifrost USB Tunnels, Bifrost Units are placed in:

Site A: Use a LAN cable to connect the Bifrost Unit to the computer that will operate the USB equipment.

Site B: Link the Bifrost Unit to the USB Equipment.

After session configuration, devices at both Site A and Site B connected through Bifrost Units will be virtually linked by a borderless USB cable. This allows authorized users at Site A to operate the equipment, bypassing the use of sensitive login information that might be at risk of compromise after the session.

For additional security, devices at both sites can be kept offline, allowing for Air-gapped Remote Access.

A Unified Remote Access Platform

Together as a suite, the BifrostConnect Solution gives you unmatched flexibility in tailoring your Zero Trust Access and scaling up your existing setup.
