Secure Desktop KVM

Avocent

Utilized by government agencies, SwitchView secure solutions allow the user to switch safely between computers operating at different classification levels from a single set of peripherals.  This provides continuous access to critical data.   The device has multiple security features to prevent the transfer of data between connected computers.  The product is designated as EAL 4+, an international standard for computer security certification.

The device provides visual indication and prevention of tampering.  Its design improves efficiency of workflow and saves desktop space by eliminating redundant cables and equipment.  The design needed to follow the family look of the KVM “SwitchView” line and the PI team needed to work within the specifications of a sheet metal chassis supplied by Avocent.  Necessary buttons and an LED were integrated into the panel.  The design allows the user to safely switch between as many as four computers from one keyboard, monitor and mouse.
