Black Box Debuts New Secure KVM Switches

PITTSBURGH, May 09, 2018 -- Black Box Corporation now offers a comprehensive line of Secure KVM Switches that safeguard against accidental transfer, unauthorized access or compromise of critical data.

“Black Box was a pioneer in KVM technology back in the 1990s and has continued to lead the KVM market over the quarter-century since,” said John Hickey, R&D & KVM Systems Director, at Black Box. “It’s a natural evolution in our history that we’re bringing to market new secure KVM switches with cybersecurity features that customers have been demanding but that didn’t previously exist.”

New features meet customer demands for secure KVM switching

Examples of innovations that will be soon available from Black Box include secure KVM switches with up to 16 direct computer connections controlled from a single user console. These come with DVI-I, DisplayPort, or HDMI video supporting 4K Ultra HD resolution, stereo audio, USB and an optional smart card reader (CAC-Port).

The secure KVM switches provide complete mechanical, electrical and optical signal isolation to ensure that absolutely no data is leaked between the ports. Each connection uses its own isolated data channel excluding the outside world. For added security, the switches also feature an always-on tamper-proof hardware design, including external hologram tamper-evident seals and long-life internal anti-tampering batteries, as well as keyboard/internal cache wiping and non-reprogrammable ROM.

Secure access solution for information assurance

All Black Box secure KVM switches comply with PSS PP v3.0 (Protection Profile for Peripheral Sharing Switch, Version 3.0) and are being certified by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP), making them suitable for use in government, medical, banking, insurance, secure control rooms, educational administration, corporate, industrial and other environments with cyber-security, hacking and data leakage concerns. They are TAA compliant and made in the U.S.
