Why ATEN Secure KVM PPv 3.0

While security has markedly improved in government, military and public sector installations, cyber threats continue to be prevalent. Key concerns include securing sensitive information, network breaches, malware attacks and cyber terrorism. So, in today’s increasingly security-conscious world, a pronounced move towards secure desktop KVM switches is one of the most effective ways to ensure the integrity of desktop data.

Secure KVM switches protect desktop access to reduce risk in government and military environments where security is imperative, as well as any other information-sensitive applications that require safe and secure switching between computers on different security level networks when deploying the solution.

Known as a new scheme of certification for peripheral devices, it has been updated to avoid the confusion with the previous EAL (Evaluation Assurance Level)-based evaluations - where EAL2+ criteria were more secure than EAL4+. NIAP no longer accepts EAL based evaluations and has transitioned to evaluations with the exact compliance to technology-specific Protection Profiles (PP).

Secure KVM Switches with NIAP PSS PP v3.0 compliance are ready to reliably secure the desktop and minimise cyber attacks

Secure KVM Key Protections for an Instant Secure Deployment

In the UK, it is required that devices are compliant with the Commercial Product Assurance (CPA) scheme. Whilst a CPA evaluation is not possible as there are no Security Characteristics (SC) suitable for a KVM device, the Common Criteria (CC) PPS PP V3.0 certification is replaced. Valid in 28 countries (including UK and US), the CC certification is an international scheme that ensures high-level desktop security, protection, and data safekeeping for organisations in industries such as government agencies (e.g. Department of Defence, Department of Justice, CIA, military, etc.), finance and other environments using multiple computers with different security classifications.
