Secure 8-port, USB keyboard/mouse switch
with audio support and a dedicated CAC port
Why Secure Keyboard/Mouse Switch?
Traditional non-secure keyboard/mouse switches offer centralized control of multiple computers, but offer no absolute isolation between them. This exposes systems to the possibility of malicious damage and disruption, and acquisition of sensitive data from one computer to another.
IPGard's secure keyboard/mouse switch is designed for use in secure defense and intelligence applications where sensitive data must be protected. The switch is NIAP PPs 3.0 certified and equipped with the highest security features that meet today's information assurance safe control standards. The switch prevents data leakage between computers that can run at different security levels, and eliminate any potential cyber threat.
Ultra-Secure Keyboard/Mouse Switching
SKMN-8S-P is an 8-port keyboard/mouse switch with a dedicated CAC port. SKMN-8S-P allows users to control keyboard/mouse operation on up to eight computers using a single set of USB keyboard and mouse. It features mechanical, electrical and optical signal isolation to prevent hacking and data leakage in environments where security is paramount.
With SKMN-8S-P, all data relays are controlled by inverted signals, shielding connections from outside intrusion by forcing them each to work one at a time. Each port uses its own isolated data channel and each unit features non-reprogrammable ROM to better protect the switch's functions. Better yet, SKMN-8S-P offers the highest security when accessing classified and public networks over the Internet through these isolated connections. By isolating connections between networks, SKMN-8S-P ensures no data is leaked between secure ports and the outside world.
SKMN-8S-P offers top-grade data protection when accessing keyboard-mouse functions across multiple connected computer systems. IPGard's NIAP Protection Profile Ver. 3.0 (PP3.0) standard compliance ensures all IPGard keyboard/mouse (KM) switches utilize the newest, most advanced safeguards in relation to keyboard, mouse, and audio security.
Seamless Cursor and Keyboard Switching
SKMN-8S-P has clearly marked front-panel buttons for controlling the devices, so securely switching between sources is always simple.
SKMN-8S-P also uses seamless mouse-cursor switching (SCS), which lets users transition between highly isolated computer systems simply by moving a mouse cursor across individual display borders. As you move the mouse between screens, SCS works in the background to switch the keyboard and mouse control to the corresponding computer. Each connected system's display remains visible during SCS, but the secure keyboard/mouse switch keeps each system isolated and protected.
Defense, intelligence and finance specialists who regularly work with sensitive data will benefit considerably from IPGard's secure keyboard/mouse switch's SCS functions, saving them both the time and effort of switching between systems.
Keyboard and Mouse Emulation
The secure keyboard/mouse emulates (simulates) the presence of a keyboard and mouse for every attached computer through a USB cable. Both selected and non-selected computers maintain a constant connection with the unit's keyboard-mouse emulation controllers, allowing for ultra-fast switching and restricting discovery of newly connected peripherals during switching operations. Emulation of keyboard and mouse also prevents direct connection between the peripherals and the connected computers, shielding systems from potential vulnerabilities.
Many secure keyboard/mouse switches support CAC devices, such as smart-card and biometric readers, bolstering security when using the device. However, IPGard takes CAC security even further, allowing users to assign specific peripheral devices to SKMN-8S-P's CAC port. Once a peripheral device has been registered by an authenticated admin, users can then switch the connection between that device and the PC's along with keyboard/mouse switching.
