Secure 2- and 4-user, 4- and 8-port, 4K DVI-I KVM switches
with a dedicated CAC port for each user
iPGARD secure multi-user dual-link DVI-USB matrix KVM switches are secure KVM switches with a dedicated CAC port for each user and support for 4K (3840×2160 @ 30Hz) resolution. iPGARD secure multi-user DVI KVM switches allow two or four independant users to access and control anyone of their connected computers at any given time (e.g. user A is controlling computer #1 while user B is controlling computer #4 at the same time).
Why Secure KVM?
Traditional non-secure KVM 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 KVM switches are designed for use in secure defense and intelligence applications where sensitive data must be protected. The switches are NIAP PPs 3.0 certified and equipped with the highest security features that meet today's information assurance safe control standards. The switches prevent data leakage between computers that can run at different security levels, and eliminate any potential cyber threat.
Ultra-Secure KVM Switching
iPGARD secure multi-user DVI KVM switches are 4- and 8-port DVI-I KVM switches with a dedicated CAC port for each user and support for 4K (3840x2160 @ 30Hz) resolution video. iPGARD secure multi-user DVI KVM switches allow users to control KVM (keyboard, video and mouse) operation on four computers with DVI monitors. They feature mechanical, electrical and optical signal isolation to prevent hacking and data leakage in environments where security is paramount.
With iPGARD secure multi-user DVI KVM switches, 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, iPGARD secure multi-user DVI KVM switches offer the highest security when accessing classified and public networks over the Internet through these isolated connections. By isolating connections between networks, iPGARD secure multi-user DVI KVM switches ensures no data is leaked between secure ports and the outside world.
iPGARD secure multi-user DVI KVM switches have clearly marked front-panel buttons for controlling the devices, so securely switching between sources is always simple. For high-grade secure switching made easy, look no further than iPGARD secure multi-user DVI KVM switches.
Many secure KVM 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 iPGARD secure multi-user DVI KVM switch'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 KVM switching.
Keyboard and Mouse Emulation
The secure KVM 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.
Secure EDID Learn and Video Emulation
iPGARD secure multi-user DVI KVM switches simulate a generic EDID as default, allowing it to operate most of the connected monitors. Both selected and non-selected computers maintain a constant connection with the unit's video emulation controllers, allowing for ultra-fast switching and restricting discovery of newly connected monitors during switching operations. Upon activating the KVM, the unit will quickly and automatically learn new EDID for specific monitors. The unit then prevents unwanted and unsecure data from getting transmitted through DDC lines by means of secure EDID learning and emulation.
