18 New Secure KVM Switches Achieve NIAP Common Criteria Certification and Ready to Reliably Secure Your Desktop While Providing an Unparalleled User Experience
Sydney, Australia – May 15th, 2018 – ATEN ANZ PTY LTD., a subsidiary of ATEN International Co., the technology leader and global manufacturer of KVM and Pro AV connectivity solutions, today announced the expansion of its enterprise KVM solutions with the launch of a new series of Secure KVM switches. The 18 new secure KVM switches are compliant with Peripheral Sharing Switch PP v3.0 (Protection Profile for Peripheral Sharing Switch, Version 3.0) certified by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) to ensure high-level desktop security, protection and data safekeeping for organizations in industries such as government agencies (e.g. Department of Defense, Department of Justice, CIA, military, etc.), finance and other environments that use multiple computers of different security classifications.
ATEN’s new PSS PP v3.0 Secure KVM Switches provide isolation between computer sources and peripherals while sharing a single keyboard, mouse, monitor, speaker set, and Common Access Card (CAC) reader between connected computers of various security classifications. Compliance with PSS PP v3.0 ensures peripheral sharing capabilities provide maximum user data security when switching port focus, preventing unauthorized data flows or leakage between connected sources. Key protections include isolation and unidirectional data flow, restricted peripheral connectivity and filtering, user data protection, configurable device filtering and management, and tamper-proof design, keeping sensitive assets isolated and providing advanced security and a user-friendly design for instantly secure deployment.
