AP-250 Inline Cyber Security Appliance

A new way of defending aircraft and avionics from threats leading to unauthorized access and disruption of electronic systems, interfaces and information. Installed directly on the aircraft, the AP-250 Inline Cyber Security Appliance (AP-250) monitors the onboard network, provides alerts and strengthens the aircraft’s cyber security posture all while complying with the growing number of aviation authority Cyber Security Guidelines. Compact and capable, the AP-250 streamlines the path to achieve the RTCA DO-326/ED202 Airworthiness Security Process Specification, among others.

The AP-250 will be installed in-line with avionics and other networking devices, directly on the aircraft. It can be installed with or without a Satcom connection off the aircraft. Featuring Advanced IDS & IPS (Intrusion Detection and Prevention System), log collection, monitoring and storage, the device also offers a simple interface to Satcom terminals and routers. Actively monitoring the onboard network, the AP-250 supports aeronautical system security and safety, through alerts. It helps address the emerging requirement for aircraft and equipment manufacturers to consider and prevent threats that can lead to unauthorized access and the disruption of electronic systems, interfaces and information. Enhanced functionality includes Dynamic Remote Ruleset updates, managed SOC (Security Operations Centre), remote Real-time Firewall and Policy-based routing updates, and remote technical support.
