Arbit develops and manufactures a complete range of certified Cross Domain Solutions, allowing customers to run high-security networks based on Data Diode Technology. Our team of highly motivated employees combines highly specialized technology competencies and insights from high security organisations supported by commercial perspective and international business experience.
History and milestones
The idea of Arbit was conceived in 2006 when Rasmus Borch became intrigued with a hypothesis: That it would be feasible to use existing high-speed fiber-optic network technology to create a simple physical diode to solve the need to securely transfer data between classified networks. In 2008 the first Data Diode was built and tested and the theory was confirmed.
Arbit began as a start-up in a basement, but the development of both hardware and software accelerated at pace. Soon came the first order to install a solution, and a viable business model was emerging.
Business grew as new systems and network requirements materialised and interest from customers increased. In 2012, Arbit welcomed new talented and committed members to the team to keep up momentum in both sales and technology development. Along the way new versions of the Arbit Data Diodes were launched, and complementary products and expanded applications were introduced.
In 2018 Arbit launched its first full ‘ruggedized’ version developed for the Armed Forces. These products and features marked an opportunity to support a new market segment and a wider range of customers.
Simultaneously, the general desire to protect civil and commercial organisations against cyber attacks has sky-rocketed. Arbit is now pursuing a strategy to become relevant to an even broader audience by leveraging the strengths in technology, approach to customer service and insights from protecting the most critical, sensitive and valuable data.
Our team of highly motivated employees combines highly specialized technology competencies and insights from high security organisations supported by commercial perspective and international business experience.
Rasmus’ vision is at the core of our organisation. He continues to oversee and drive Arbit’s success, focusing particularly on technology and innovation. Having taken a Masters Degree in Computer Science, Rasmus went on to advance development of networks in high security organisations.
Jeppe leads our software development efforts. With a degree in Computer Science, Jeppe has architected numerous advanced software solutions based on insights from organisations with the highest security demands and strict requirements.

Arbit is committed to high standards of business ethics and sustainability. Arbit’s Supplier Code of Conduct is based on the UN Global Compact’s ten principles and expresses the expectations that we hold for our suppliers.
We encourage our suppliers to establish their own codes of conduct based on similar standards and to flow down these standards to all persons and entities supplying goods or services to Arbit.
We also expect that our suppliers will, upon receiving reasonable notice, give Arbit access to relevant premises and documentation to verify compliance with the Supplier Code of Conduct.
If a supplier fails to meet our expectations as set out in the Supplier Code of Conduct, Arbit’s general approach is to encourage improvement. Critical deviations or repeated unwillingness to make improvement, however, may jeopardize the supplier’s relationship with Arbit.
